Exceptional family house with a spacious garden in a peaceful street close to Longniddry Golf Course

Location

Pirniefield is situated on King's Road, one of Longniddry's most sought after residential streets, known for being a peaceful, leafy street, close to the golf course and within easy walking distance of the train station.

Longniddry is a quiet village with many amenities including shops, a library and a community centre. Like many coastal towns within East Lothian, Longniddry boasts a beautiful sandy beach. This stretch of local coastline is known as Longniddry Bents, popular in the summer months with local families, holidaymakers, picnickers, horse riders, ramblers and dog walkers alike. The shallow bay is also a favoured location for windsurfers, kite surfers and sea kayakers. There is a primary school in the village and private schooling is available locally at The Compass School in Haddington and Loretto in Musselburgh, with a large selection of other private schools available in Edinburgh.

East Lothian provides a wide range of activities and is well known for its quality links golf courses, including Muirfield, host to The Open Championship, Gullane, Luffness and Archerfield Links, as well as the local Longniddry Golf Course. The Lammermuir Hills to the south offer the chance of hill walking, fishing and pheasant and grouse shooting.

Edinburgh (15 miles) is easily accessible via the A1 dual carriageway, as is Edinburgh Airport (23 miles). Longniddry itself has a train station which is on the North Berwick to Edinburgh line with a journey time to Edinburgh Waverley of around 20 minutes.

Description

The front entrance is positioned up three steps and opens into the reception hall. An office is positioned to the right and the sitting room to the left. The sitting room is a comfortable reception room with a bay window over looking the garden and a working fireplace with an Italian marble surround under a timber mantel..

Adjacent to this is the fabulous kitchen and family room. This is within the most recent extension to the east end of the house and is entirely floored in marble tiles. It has a spacious working area with fitted wall and floor units and full height larder units next to the integrated fridge freezer. A Britannia range with six burners, warming plate, two ovens and a storage drawer sits beneath a co-ordinating extractor fan. The worktops are a combination of dark wood and a composite cream granite which work well with the painted cabinetry. The large kitchen island has cupboards beneath, a breakfast bar at one end and incorporates a stainless steel double sink. Beyond the kitchen island is an informal seating area as well as a dining area with fully glazed concertina doors that open onto the decking to create an exceptional summer entertaining space. There is further cupboard space in the utility room and space for a washing machine and a tumble dryer. A door to the garden provides a secondary entrance to the property.

Sliding doors open from the family kitchen into the swimming pool room. An Endless pool provides an exceptional training facility complemented by a gym area positioned to the rear of the room where windows look to the front of the house. The pool is entirely run on energy provided by the roof mounted solar panels. Along the southern wall there are concertina doors that open the area onto the decking and back garden. A store cupboard houses the pool controls and the manifold for the under floor heating.

The sleeping accommodation occupies the west end of the house. The master bedroom has windows to the front of the house and wardrobes along the west wall. It also has an en suite shower/steam room with WC and wash basin set into a vanity unit. The family bathroom has both a shower cabinet and a Jacuzzi style bath. There are three further double bedrooms, each with large fitted wardrobes and windows to the rear garden. A further WC is located next to bedroom 4 and a linen cupboard is positioned next to the stairs which rise up to a games room in the attic space above the garage. This has Velux windows that pour light over the space. There is planning permission to create a pitched roof with further accommodation over the bedroom extension beneath.

The garage is an oversize double garage with an up and over electric door and excellent workshop and storage space for golf clubs and bikes. There are also fitted cupboards and shelving and it houses the Worcester boiler.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

Pirniefield lies in a particular leafy area of Longniddry. Timber decking extends across much of the rear of the house which is a south facing suntrap.

There are colourful flower beds running along the eastern edge of the property between the painted timber fence and the large lawn and in a sunny spot along the southern boundary there are raspberry canes and a strawberry bed which provide seasonal soft fruit.
