Full Description

Rarely-available, this unique B-Listed, Arts and Crafts period, four-bedroom family home, is situated in an idyllic, rural position on the edge of the village of Humbie. Full of character, this converted Dining Hall was built in 1923 and is set on an elevated site enjoying spectacular views of the East Lothian countryside. Comprising a welcoming entrance vestibule, spacious hallway, bright living room, modern dining kitchen and family room, master bedroom with en-suite, three further bedrooms, a stylish shower room, and a separate cloakroom. It offers some fine traditional and original features, such as original rosewood flooring, cornicework, and recessed sash and case windows with surround panelling. A significant feature of the property is the operational bell tower with four working bells, while further features include a traditional fireplace, multi-fuel wood burning stove, LPG central heating, TV and telephone points, and ample integrated storage space. The property hasn't yet reached its full potential, with planning permission for the partially-floored attic to create two further dormer bedrooms with en-suites. With open countryside views, the property sits on extensive, well-maintained grounds which form the private front and rear gardens, in addition to the spacious driveway, leading to the detached double garage. The antique furniture may be available by separate negotiations. Offering stylish countryside living and an abundance of outdoor pursuits, including fishing, golfing, cycling, walking, and horse riding, the property is still only a short drive from the A68, which makes for quick connection to the Edinburgh City Bypass and surrounding areas, and is just a 25 minute drive from Edinburgh city centre. The recently opened Humbie Hub consists of a shop, cafe, post office and workshop spaces, and further amenities are available at nearby Haddington or Dalkeith, offering a larger selection of shops, pubs, and restaurants. Public schooling is well served in Humbie and nearby West Saltoun, with Knox Academy high school in Haddington. The private sector is served by the Compass school and Belhaven Hill School at primary level, and Loretto school in Musselburgh.
