Forming part of a conversion of a traditional former farm steading, this characterful, stone-built, cottage has been imaginatively re-configured to create a bright and spacious contemporary country home. It is set in a tranquil rural enclave between the charming East Lothian villages of Stenton and Garvald. This exceptionally airy cottage offers a delightful balance of modern and traditional, characterised by red sandstone walls, exposed beams, and natural wood finishes, contrasting with crisp, neutral décor.
From a gravelled driveway, a short step leads to the front entrance. A sunny porch, with storage, immediately flows into the heart of the house, a spacious open plan living/dining room. Large windows on both sides flood the room with natural light, whilst double doors link to the garden, enhancing the sense of space throughout. A multifuel stove creates a warming focal point for seating furniture – ideal for cosy relaxation. Flowing from an adjoining dining area, perfect for entertaining, the kitchen offers a range of contemporary fitted units, with sleek doors and contrasting worktop, integrating a hob, two ovens, refrigerator, freezer, and space for a washing machine.
From the reception room a door leads to an inner hall, off which radiate two double and one single bedrooms, each cosily carpeted, and offering an airy tranquillity. The generous master bedroom boasts fitted storage, and a door which links directly to the garden. Bedroom three, also with an external door, is currently used as a study. Finally, a bright three-piece bathroom, with a storage cupboard off, is appointed with a contemporary suite including a bath with shower over, trendy metro tiles and contrasting wood panelling.
There are PV panels incorporated into the south facing roof, and electric heating and double glazing ensure cost effective and efficient year-round warmth and comfort.
Outside, a paved patio envelops the front of the house, ideal for alfresco dining. Beyond is a wide expanse of lawn, bordered by traditional stone walls, enclosing colourful flowerbeds, giving rise to a private rural outdoor haven. There is a shed and two additional external stores.
