Full description

Station House is a unique attached cottage, the former station master cottage, set within large private gardens and located within the East Lothian coastal town of Prestonpans. The garden incorporates two beautiful areas of lawn, bordered by mature plants and shrubs, in addition to a large paved patio and a substantial drive-in which provides off street parking facilities for three cars. The property comes complete with an area of adjacent land which has planning permission for a two bedroom single storey detached house, and plans may be viewed upon application. The house has been extended to the side to create a spacious dual aspect lounge with exposed stone work to one wall and patio doors which give direct access to the patio. The large kitchen falls naturally into cooking and dining areas and comprises a selection of base and wall mounted units in a white wood grain finish, with concealed pelmet lighting and built-in plate and wine racks. The master bedroom has the added attraction of an en-suite shower room, and both remaining bedrooms are large enough to accommodate a double bed, although the smallest bedroom is currently used as a study. The accommodation is completed by a useful utility room, a bathroom and a lean to which is accessed from the rear court. Further benefits on offer include a new gas central heating system and Baxi boiler (installed March 2013), double glazing and an attic, whilst for the security conscious a modern intruder alarm system has been installed. Whilst now requiring some upgrading, this cottage is rich in character and history and offers tremendous scope for any purchaser to design a property to their own specification, and indeed to develop the adjoining plot.

The subjects are located in the popular East Lothian coastal town of Prestonpans, which is well within commuting distance of Edinburgh. The property enjoys a prime location close to the town centre, within easy reach of the excellent amenities Prestonpans and nearby Port Seton have to offer. For a more comprehensive range of amenities Musselburgh is just a little further afield. The property is close to an efficient public transport network which operates throughout the town, throughout East Lothian and to Edinburgh. The city bypass and main motorway networks are also within easy reach. For those seeking an alternative method of transport, Prestonpans railway station is adjacent to the property.




All fitted carpets, floor coverings, curtains and blinds, in addition to the oven, hob, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. The wardrobes and matching dresser unit in the master bedroom may be available if required.
