Spacious 5 bedroom steading conversion on edge of village


East Linton 2 miles, Dunbar 4 miles, North Berwick 5 miles, Edinburgh 23 miles

3 Tyninghame Mains forms part of a steading conversion overlooking a peaceful courtyard, set on the edge of the conservation village of Tyninghame.

The surrounding East Lothian countryside offers beautiful views to the Lammermuir Hills and is renowned for its golf courses with Muirfield, Gullane, Luffness and North Berwick all nearby. The John Muir Country Park, a haven for wildlife, is only a short distance away and there are some wonderful walks nearby, in Binning Wood and along Tyninghame beach as well as the popular John Muir Way. Other expansive, sandy beaches along the East Lothian coast are numerous and easily accessible.

Tyninghame village, with its manicured cricket pitch, village hall and coffee shop, is only a short distance to Dunbar and North Berwick which provide excellent commuter train services. Both towns as well as Haddington (8 miles) also offer a greater selection of amenities including supermarkets, high street shops, banks, professional services and hotels. There are good local nursery, primary and secondary schools throughout the area and three well regarded independent schools: The Compass in Haddington (primary), Belhaven Hill in Dunbar (preparatory) and Loretto in Musselburgh (3-18). All the fee paying schools of Edinburgh are within easy reach and many have direct bus services from East Lothian


Converted in 1998, 3 Tyninghame Mains forms part of a steading building which was linked to Tyninghame House. Overlooking a private and tranquil courtyard, the property forms the northwest aspect of the courtyard, and has a large L shaped private garden to the rear.

From the gravelled courtyard, the front door opens up onto an entrance hall with feature exposed stone wall. At the end of the hall is a shower room, located next to a door leading out to the rear patio. A large kitchen with breakfast area is located down the west wing of the property, passing by a spacious utility room. The kitchen has fitted base and wall units, access to the rear patio, and a quaint window seat overlooking the courtyard. A wood burning stove provides a focal point for the room.

From the main entrance hall a snug family room can be accessed which features patio doors opening onto the rear garden. A staircase leads up to a mezzanine level study, with three Velux windows, and a viewing gallery overlooking the dining and sitting rooms.

On the ground floor, the double height and open plan dining and sitting room is located to the right of the entrance hall, and is divided by an open fireplace and brick chimney. The large room provides spacious areas for both dining and seating, and is lit by dual aspect windows and patio doors opening up onto the courtyard. Wood beams have been exposed in the ceiling which add a wonderful charm and character to the room. A hallway leads through to a shower room, a double bedroom and the master bedroom with en suite shower room.

From the first floor landing, three further bedrooms can be accessed as well as a spacious family bathroom with free standing bath, shower, WC and basin. Two of the bedrooms have integrated wardrobe space, and the third has a larger dressing area incorporated into the eaves.

The L shaped garden to the rear of the property is wonderfully private and overlooks the neighbouring fields and woodland. There is a stone terrace which borders the property and extends to the garage, with an additional area of timber decking which provides a seating area. On the edge of the property is an outbuilding comprising three garages. The middle garage belongs to 3 Tyninghame Mains, and has an access door leading onto the paved patio. Adjacent to the garage is a wooden summerhouse tucked under the shade of mature trees in amongst the orchard. An area of lawn extends to either side of the paved patio.
