Nestled in the exclusive coastal town of Gullane, Midmar is a sophisticated yet inviting contemporary family home, with 5 bedrooms and multiple reception rooms, all of which enjoy exquisite interior design. Covering 256 square metres, this exclusive property further boasts a vast, modern studio/garden room, secluded gardens with specimen trees and grasses, and an attached large garage with utility space.

The coastal home has an unrivalled location just a stone’s throw from Gullane’s breath-taking beach and within easy walking distance of quality independent retailers and renowned golf courses.

With a truly attractive approach through the thoughtfully landscaped gardens with decked seating areas to the front and rear, the front door opens into a welcoming vestibule, which in turn gives access to a broad L-shaped reception hall that instantly highlights the current owners’ attention to detail and tasteful style. The hall is presented with mid-century inspired wallpaper framing the timber flooring. It also provides convenient hidden storage before flowing into the open plan living and dining room on the left. Here, the natural honey-colour of the wooden floor is retained to enhance a modern countrystyle look, set against pristine white walls, hinting to its coastal location. The very generous floor space has a well defined area for an 8+ family dining table, ideal for dinner parties, and ample room for a variety of comfortable lounge furniture for relaxing and socialising. It is brightened by natural light streaming in from wall-to-wall, dual-aspect windows and heated by a fire belly log-burning stove set below a driftwood mantel, alongside a neat recess for storing wood.

Next door, the kitchen has a striking design that is wholly contemporary and in-vogue. It features white handle-less cabinets fitted at the base, paired with wall-mounted cabinets finished in chrome with frosted glass fronts. Chunky wood worktops add definition and a rich warm colour to the design, which complements the deep cyan décor and mosaic splashbacks. It is a light and inviting space illuminated by track lighting and two windows that frame a delightful garden outlook. It also offers a four-person dining area with a fitted breakfast bar for morning coffee and relaxed meals accompanied by scenic views. Clever storage options and bottle holders are incorporated into the design, in addition to a range of freestanding and integrated appliances (gas range cooker, fridge-freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, and a barista-style coffee machine).

At the other end of the hall are two double bedrooms, both with easy upkeep hardwood flooring and airy proportions. Furthermore, there is a sitting room/home office which surround sound system and screen for TV projection. Conveniently, a luxury three-piece shower room (including a walk-in quadrant shower) completes the ground-floor accommodation. From the hall, a grand timber staircase curves to the first floor landing, which extends to three additional double bedrooms, presented in rich modern tones and with soft carpeting for added cosiness. All three rooms are very spacious with ample dimensions for bedside furnishings and a private desk for study/working from home. The master bedroom also boasts an airy dual-aspect and, like the second bedroom, useful under-eaves storage.

Finally, a contemporary tiled bathroom, illuminated by a skylight, serves the first floor, enjoying a nautical colour palette and a deluxe suite, including a bathtub with overhead shower, storage-set twin washbasins, and a hidden-cistern toilet. Warm air heating system and double glazing throughout ensure outstanding comfort and efficiency all year round.

E xternally, this stunning family home is accompanied by very attractive wraparound garden grounds that are neatly bordered by a wooden fence and well-established hedgerows for outstanding privacy. The landscaped space is cleverly designed into sections including multiple timber decked areas for relaxing in the sun and for alfresco dining, a large manicured lawn for children (including an in-ground trampoline), a patio for barbecues, and a peaceful timber bay inset with a luxury hot tub (available by separate negotiation). In addition, there is an incredible, triple-aspect studio/garden room, warmed by a log-burning stove and offering very generous proportions for a variety of uses, whether for relaxing with idyllic garden views or for working from home. The garden also comes with a shed for storage, log stores and small caravan/studio/playroom. A gated driveway, separate parking area to the side with electric gates and a large garage (with a handy utility area) provide secure, off-street parking.
