Full description

Oakleaf Homes are delighted to bring to the market this deceptively spacious detached, five bedroom, 17th Century house. History shows this B Listed home as being once a gatehouse to the town of Haddington, now, modernised for present day family living whilst retaining the charm of the period. Thick stone walls and astragalled secondary glazed windows provide quiet and seclusion unexpected of its central position. This spacious family home is arranged over three floors and retains much of its original character and most windows are original with deep sills. The lounge is a comfortable space for family and friends to gather around the feature stone fireplace and wood-burning stove. A door to the garden and windows to three aspects ensure an abundance of natural light. A large under stair area has been sectioned off with folding doors and power and would be ideal as a play room or study. The dining kitchen again provides windows to three aspects and includes a range of fitted wall and base units with complementary worktops along with ample space for table and chairs. Excellent use has been made of available space for storage on this level and is utilised to house washing machine and tumble dryer. A carpeted staircase rises to the first floor to find four bedrooms and the family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The bathroom has the benefit of a shower over the bath. The staircase continues to the second floor. An attractive conversion by the current owners has resulted in a large master suite bedroom, dressing area and bathroom. The quirky stone wall with small windows on the gable end add a sense of period drama whilst the room delivers modern comfort. The dressing area and the master bathroom add the wow factor. Externally, the south facing walled garden is delightfully private and offers a space for off street parking.

Extras
All fitted carpets, floor coverings, curtains, blinds, light fittings and integrated white goods in the kitchen are included in the sale.

The historic market town of Haddington lies on the River Tyne, approximately eighteen miles east of Edinburgh and situated in the heart of East Lothian's attractive countryside.

The town itself offers an excellent range of local shops, a sports centre with swimming pool, schooling for all ages, a good choice of pubs and restaurants and numerous golf courses. Haddington offers a wide range of social and cultural activities generated by the lively local community including concerts in the magnificent 14th Century St Mary's Parish Church.
