Deceptively spacious period 4 bed house with stunning sea views and charming walled courtyard
The Long House is a stunning and unique property which has been carefully and thoughtfully converted from a historic warehouse in a rarely available location a stone’s throw from the beach and only a five-minute walk from the railway station. The delightful frontage hides the scale of this lovely home which opens into a welcoming, light and airy space with a flexible layout that has been designed to maximise the wonderful and uninterrupted sea views from almost every window. A long hallway leads down to the dining room/family room which has a painted cast iron spiral staircase leading to the first floor living room. The well-planned kitchen opens from this room and benefits from shaker style units and excellent storage. Accessed directly from the kitchen, there is a charming and sunny sheltered courtyard garden over two levels which offers excellent privacy. A double bedroom, bathroom and utility room complete the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs the living room enjoys a spectacular sea view to Cromwell Harbour and Velux windows flood this charming room and all of the upstairs spaces with light. There is also a large master bedroom with sea views and a contemporary en-suite shower room and 2 further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study. There are quality finishes throughout the property combined with bespoke features and clever lighting. A useful pend area is accessed from the street and is shared with 3 other houses in this secluded development.
Historic Dunbar, which is surrounded by fantastic scenery is a vibrant, thriving town with a real sense of community. There is a bustling high street with an excellent selection of independent and artisan shops, restaurants and galleries with the convenience of a large supermarket on the outskirts. There are excellent schools in the area. The two colourful working harbours beneath the ruined castle are the hub of the town and the Harbour Trust is an active part of local life. The Dunbar Battery has recently been spectacularly restored to create a unique open-air venue with an amphitheatre and a coastal garden. There is also a leisure centre with a swimming pool and a newly opened platinum fitness centre, two golf courses, beautiful sandy beaches, spectacular cliff top walks and the John Muir Country Park. The town is also home to Coast to Coast, Scotland’s largest surfing school. The convenience of easy access to Edinburgh City Centre by train (25 minutes) or via a regular bus service and access to the A1 and City Bypass is easy and straightforward, which combined with accessibility to Newcastle and the South by train or car adds to the appeal of this sought-after town.
The carpets, curtains, blinds and light fittings throughout are included in the sale price together with the induction hob, oven, extractor hood and dishwasher.
