Our lovely home is situated just a few miles outside of Edinburgh on the East Lothian coast, which means we have all the benefits of being close to the city (18 mins by train to city centre) while enjoying the peace and beauty of a village by the sea (5 mins walk to the sea). This would be a great swap for a couple or family who want to explore busy Edinburgh, but live in an area of natural beauty with wide open landscapes. Its a golfer's heaven, with at least 8 course running the length of the coast, all with sensational sea views, including the championship courses Muirfield and Archerfield. Longniddry golf course is two minutes walk from the house. Its a great centre for day trips, with a host of charming seaside villages, stately homes and ruined castles, birdwatching sites, beaches and clifftops to explore. Its an area renowned for good walks, sailing and cycling. We have a community tennis court just over the road. Its a great place for families, with local parks, beaches and woods to explore. The garden here is a real treat for young and old - flat, safe and spacious for little ones, a beautiful deck from which to enjoy some peace and sunshine, a cute little summerhouse for those inevitable cooler days!
The house was built as a traditional bungalow and has been extended over the years. It is bright, sunny and spacious, with a relaxed style. We love our garden and have collected some nice artwork over the years, and these two things set the style and atmosphere of our home
On the ground floor we have two lounges. To the front of the house, a traditional lounge with bay window and fireplace and stove. To the back of the house, the garden room is part of an open plan extension which has floor to ceiling doors opening on to the deck, with lovely views of the garden. This too has a gas stove. Both rooms have wall mounted, internet TVs, with Netfix etc. (TV in front lounge has been upgraded since photo was taken).
The kitchen is open plan with dining area. It was refitted 3 years ago and has dishwasher, Gaggia coffee machine, microwave, large fridge/freezer, well equipped with everything you would need. Washing machine is located just off the kitchen.
