Description

Ninewar is an impressive south facing five bedroom detached country house set within approximately 7.25 acres of grounds. Originally built in 1848 as the factor's house for the Biel Estate, the property is accessed via its own driveway and is surrounded by mature woodland both of which afford the house great privacy. The house retains many period features including marble fireplaces, a fine stone staircase and working shutters. The beautifully proportioned rooms, many of them double aspect, are light and airy thanks to the large, low level windows overlooking the gardens and afford generous and flexible family accommodation.

At the rear of the house lies a sunny courtyard off which there are stables, a hay loft, coachhouses and various store rooms. These could be used as working stables or converted into further residential accommodation (subject to appropriate consents being obtained). If retained as stables, there is ample pasture land within the grounds of the property.

Location

Ninewar is located close to the popular East Lothian town of Dunbar which has a bustling high street with a wide selection of shops and an Asda Superstore on the outskirts of the town. There are two private nurseries, a Primary School and Grammar school all within easy access and there is also Belhaven Hill School in the private sector. There is a leisure centre with a swimming pool, two golf courses and excellent sandy beaches and a most attractive harbour which is now famous for outdoor sports including diving. There is easy access to Edinburgh City Centre by train (25 minutes) from Dunbar and there is a regular bus service from the town. Access to the A1 and City Bypass is straightforward with Edinburgh being some 45 minutes by car.

Gardens and Paddock

The extensive mature gardens surrounding the house are well stocked with herbaceous borders, beautiful rhododendron bushes and several specimen trees. There is also a lovely patio area to the front of the house and many other seating areas throughout the gardens.

Also within the grounds, there is a Victorian brick-lined walled garden which, whilst in need of re-stocking, has in the recent past been cultivated with a huge variety of fruit and vegetables. It also contains a large area of pasture. The walled garden may be suitable for development for commercial or residential purposes (subject to appropriate consents being obtained).

To the north of the main house, there is a large paddock where the former "Gardener's Cottage" is situated. Although now derelict this could be redeveloped and extended (again subject to appropriate consents being obtained).

Driveway, Parking and Stable Block

The property is accessed via a large driveway where there is ample parking and there are coachouses and stables in the courtyard to the rear.

Fixtures and Fittings

The carpets, curtains and light fittings throughout the property are included in the sale price together with the hob, double oven, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. A ride-on mower is also included.

Services

The property is heated by oil central heating.
