    About the property

    **Closing Date Set - Friday 11th March 2022**

    Traditional, two-bedroom, two-reception room, detached cottage in the charming village of East Linton, set within easy reach of East Lothian’s picturesque coast and countryside and transport links to the capital. The appealing property benefits from spacious accommodation, and is well-presented throughout. Furthermore, it has a detached studio for home working and an expansive garden that provides the cottage with ample scope for an extension (subject to consent). 

    Nestled behind a low-maintenance front garden, the home’s main door opens into a naturally-lit vestibule leading to a central hall with built-in storage and attic access. On the right is the living room, which has a bay window for a bright and airy ambience. It is further enhanced by neutral décor and a stripped wooden floor, and features a focal-point fireplace and a shelved recess. A south-facing dining room, currently arranged as a sitting area, provides an additional reception space for socialising, dining, and entertaining. It shares a convenient open plan layout with the kitchen and dual-aspect windows. The kitchen is well-appointed with white cabinets and chunky wooden worktops, backed by on-trend metro-style splashbacks. It includes under-cabinet lighting, additional built-in storage, an integrated gas hob, eye-level oven/grill, and microwave, and a freestanding American-style fridge/freezer. A washing machine is next door in a rear porch with garden access.  Meanwhile, the two bedrooms are both well-proportioned doubles, decorated in neutral hues. The principal bedroom, with a press cupboard, is to the home’s front, whereas the second bedroom overlooks the rear garden and is finished with a shelved recess. Completing the accommodation is a modern three-piece shower room with a walk-in shower. Gas central heating is via a newly-installed boiler. Windows are double glazed (except one window in the dining room). 

    Outside, the mature rear garden has a large lawn and delightful leafy views, which can be admired from a wooden balcony extending from the detached studio. The studio has electricity, lighting, internet, and is perfect for creative use. It is supplemented by a store room, a shed, and additional storage. Parking is on-street and unrestricted.
