Mark Paton of Galbraith, who is handling the sale, said “This charming former farmhouse presents a rare opportunity to create a lovely family home in spacious grounds in a scenic setting very close to the coast. The situation couldn’t be better, with great privacy, attractive countryside all around and being just three minutes from all the amenities of Dunbar.
“As well as a family home, there is the potential to create a business, making use of the existing kennels or, with the correct consent in place, a myriad of other potential business opportunities. This type of property does not come to the market very often in East Lothian.”
The house has five good sized bedrooms (one en-suite with both a shower and a whirlpool bath), lounge, living room/snug, dining room and breakfasting kitchen with charming conservatory off, as well as a separate utility room and WC and boiler room.
Myreside is set in about 4.1 acres, including an enclosed south-facing garden to the front of the property, laid to lawn, a paved area to the rear of the house, three good quality fenced paddocks, and woodland.
To the east of the house there is a kennel block comprised of 16 separate compartments with underfloor heating throughout. There is an office area, reception room and WC. There is an enclosed gravel yard to the south of the kennel block and parking area.
Myreside is just south of Dunbar (about 3 miles), a vibrant town on the coast of East Lothian with its spectacular coastline and a number of renowned beaches at Tyninghame and Seacliffe all within 20 minutes’ drive from the property. The Coast to Coast Surf School is on Belhaven Beach and Foxlake, the 5 star adventure hub is close by.
The surrounding countryside provides a wealth of walking, equestrian and other sporting opportunities as well as an abundance of options for golfers with the local Dunbar’s Championship Course and a further 15 courses within a 15 mile radius of the property.
There is easy access to the A1, offering direct and excellent links to the Edinburgh City, the city bypass and Airport. Dunbar benefits from an East Coast Line railway station, providing regular and direct trains to Edinburgh Waverley and beyond as well as south bound services to Berwick and London.
Myreside is on the market for offers over £995,000.
