Eskside East, Musselburgh


Full Description


With an idyllic setting beside the River Esk, this traditional end-terrace villa in Musselburgh boasts stunning riverside views and classical accommodation, with well-retained period features and contemporary interior design. The outstanding property offers four/five double bedrooms, two/three reception rooms, and a large, sympathetic extension that forms a high-spec dining kitchen. The villa further benefits from a south-facing landscaped garden and a floored attic that has excellent potential for development (subject to consent).

Inside, the front door opens into a vestibule to a hall, defined by neutral décor and varnished wooden floorboards, which are found throughout much of the home. It has built-in storage and leads left into the living room. This generously proportioned reception space continues the attractive decoration, further impressing with its wealth of period details, from the exquisite feature fireplace, to intricate cornice work, and twin sash windows with working shutters and lovely views of the river. A family room, with an equally inspiring view and similar period features, along with a formal dining room (complete with a Rayburn cooker) provide two additional reception areas for relaxing, socialising, entertaining, and dining. If desired, the family room could alternatively be used as a fifth double bedroom. Meanwhile, the dual-aspect dining kitchen is tastefully designed in a high specification to complement the traditional character of the property. Arranged in a galley style to create room for a table and chairs, it is fitted with solid stone worktops and Shaker-inspired cabinetry, housing an integrated oven and gas hob, and space for freestanding appliances. Completing the ground floor, and with a decorative period fireplace, is the first of four double bedrooms.

Upstairs, a naturally-lit landing brings extra light throughout the villa, also offering deep storage and connecting to the three remaining double bedrooms. The impressive master bedroom, with built-in storage and sumptuous interior design, is adorned with an ornate feature fireplace and additional period details. Like bedroom three, it is front facing as well, capturing spectacular views over the River Esk. All of the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and spaciously proportioned, with two rooms softly carpeted for optimal comfort. A traditional-style bathroom serves the bedrooms with a three-piece suite and shower-over-bath, presented with chic, tongue and groove panelling. For added convenience, there is a separate WC on this level too. Finally, the large, floored attic is perfect for storage and creative use. Gas central heating is found throughout

Externally, there is a south-facing rear garden that is landscaped with a sweeping lawn and two patios for alfresco dining in the sun. Fully-enclosed, it is a delightful haven for the entire family. There is also access to an outbuilding for storage. Unrestricted parking is available on Eskside East.
