Nestled on the northwestern edge of desirable North Berwick, with nothing but the vast greens of West Links Golf Course between it and the Firth of Forth, The Coach House represents a rare opportunity to acquire a unique home in the most exclusive enclave of the coastal town. The substantial home and outbuildings extend to some 250 sq. metres combined, with accommodation comprising four bedrooms, four bathrooms, three reception rooms and a luxurious kitchen, as well as a double garage and a versatile summerhouse. Designed to take full advantage of its magnificent setting, the property is arranged over three levels and boasts a patio roof terrace with panoramic views across the Firth of Forth. Strathearn Road connects with The John Muir Way and The Coach House is just a five-minute stroll from the beautiful sandy beach via the West Links golf course.
The detached property enjoys an secluded setting towards the end of Strathearn Road and at the end of a narrow lane, which is shared with one other property. The Coach House occupies a prominent position behind a substantial monoblock driveway and instantly endears with its mansard roof and triple dormer windows. Ascending the external staircase to the first-floor patio roof terrace, here you catch the first glimpse of the breathtaking panoramic views, which encompass the Forth islands of Craigleith and Bass Rock, as well as North Berwick Law. Inside, the living room is filled with natural light and yields the same stunning sea views courtesy of large picture windows. The formal dining room adjacent offers a fantastic setting for dinner parties and entertaining, complete with a practical dishwashing station.
The farmhouse-inspired kitchen on the ground floor features cream Shaker-style cabinets, a central island and a classic white-enamelled AGA (gas). This is supplemented with an integrated electric hob and a double oven/grill. The triple-aspect conservatory off the kitchen represents an ideal space for breakfast or casual dining, and enjoys glazed double doors to the front.
The four bedrooms and four bathrooms are positioned on the ground floor and second floor. On the ground floor is a three-piece bathroom and a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and substantial fitted wardrobes. The second-floor accommodation is accessible via a staircase in the dining room and comprises two double bedrooms with an en-suite shower room and bathroom respectively, a generous single bedroom and a walk-in wardrobe. Gas central heating and double-glazed windows guarantee outstanding home comfort and efficiency, all year round.
