Nestled on the edge of exclusive Aberlady, with unspoilt views of the stunning rural landscape, this iconic 1960s detached house represents a rare opportunity to acquire a unique 4 bedroom family home, complete with south-facing gardens and substantial off-street parking. In 2009 a side extension was added to create a fantastic self-contained 2 bedroom linked cottage, which has been operated as a successful holiday cottage*, but also offers endless potential for multi-generational living or working from home.

With its bold geometric design and sharp monopitch roof, the house is a striking example of 1960s domestic architecture. Inside, these external elements translate into the outstanding proportions and superb natural light typical of era. The house has been sympathetically modernised, whilst retaining unmistakeable period features such as timber-framed casement windows and a distinctive mid-century staircase. Welcoming you into the main house is a tremendous entrance hall, whose soaring ceilings and crisp white décor instantly convey the calibre of the accommodation to follow.

At the end of the hall, the south-facing living room enjoys vast full-height windows overlooking the beautiful gardens, as well as an open fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves. From here double doors flow into the south/ east-facing conservatory, which boasts an original flagstone floor and classic French doors onto the garden.

At the heart of this wonderful family home is the west-facing dining kitchen, which falls naturally into a convivial dining area (perfect for busy family meals and entertaining) and a traditional fitted kitchen with ideal storage, workspace and a selection of freestanding appliances.

An archway in the entrance hall leads into an inner hall, which accommodates two well-proportioned double bedrooms and an immaculate three-piece bathroom. Upstairs, the sunny first floor landing features two further double bedrooms (with rustic exposed beams) and a sunny three-piece bathroom. Particularly impressive is the southfacing master bedroom, which boasts extensive built-in wardrobes and breathtaking views across open fields. The house benefits from generous storage throughout, including a partially floored loft and an under-stair cupboard. The conservatory opens onto a beautiful south-facing garden to the rear, which is fully enclosed and sheltered by established shrubs and trees. In addition to a neat patio, a manicured lawn and a garden shed a large section of the rear garden has been chipped to allow additiona parking for several vehicles.

The Cottage

The self-contained cottage, which is also linked to the main house for maximum flexibility, is arranged over two levels and has a back door onto its own south-facing courtyard.

Flooded with light from large skylights, the contemporary living room is characterised by a stunning vaulted ceiling, whose exposed beams add a quaint cottage feel. The sleek galley kitchen is equipped with an integrated four-burner gas hob and an electric single oven, plus a fridge, a washer/ dryer and a dishwasher concealed within the built-in boiler cupboard. To
the rear are a spacious double bedroom and a modern shower room, and upstairs is a second double/twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room Both the main house and cottage benefit from gas central heating an double glazing, ensuring optimum comfort and efficiency all year round.
