Property highlight: Wonderfull spacious versatile family accommodation to suit a variety of lifestyles set in 1.3 acres
Offering wonderfully spacious and versatile family accommodation to suit a variety of lifestyles, set in 1.3 acres, this unique, generous detached cottage near Haddington accommodates multiple reception areas, five bedrooms, and three bathrooms. Externally, the cottage is accompanied by vast garden grounds and extensive private parking, including a multi-car driveway and an integral double garage.
The property's main entrance opens into a practical vestibule, flowing through to a hall with built-in storage. On your right, double doors open into the first of several reception areas: a generous living room. Setting the tone for the accommodation to follow, the living room enjoys a flexible footprint and is decorated in muted hues, enhanced by wood flooring and a striking feature fireplace. The living room flows openly through to a formal dining room – perfect for everyday family life and entertaining alike! The dining room can comfortably accommodate at least an eight-seater table and additional furniture and is conveniently connected to the kitchen.
The farmhouse-inspired kitchen (with garden access) is appointed with base cabinets and generous granite worktops, arranged around a central island with further storage and workspace, and framed by flagstone floor tiles.
The pièce de resistance of the kitchen is a large cream-coloured AGA, sure to impress home cooks and amateur chefs alike and offering a homely, yet impressive focal point for the room. Space is provided in the kitchen for an additional dining area, ideal for casual weeknight suppers, breakfasts, and socialising while cooking, whilst a neighbouring utility room (with external access) offers a discrete laundry area.
The hall also affords access to a casual family/TV room, a study, and a sitting room, with the latter enjoying characterful ceiling beams and a striking stone feature wall, and leading through to a further hall (with storage), off of which a bedroom and a bathroom are accessed.
Externally, the cottage is accompanied by wonderfully generous garden grounds, offering the perfect outdoor space for family recreation, barbecuing and entertaining during summer, and ideal for those looking to embrace the rural lifestyle, featuring apple, pear, and plum trees, and offering potential to be used as a paddock. The surrounding fields and countryside ensure ultimate peace and tranquillity, and excellent private parking is provided by a multi-car driveway and an integral double garage.
