Reimagined and redeveloped, this stunning architect-designed home is an irresistible countryside hideaway, yet just 15 miles from the magnificent city of Edinburgh and 7 miles from the stunning East Lothian coast.
A charismatic conversion offering oodles of style, comfort and serenity
Turn the corner into this steading with its vibrant blue livery and you are drawn by the fantastic combination of rustic wood cladding which reveals the contours of the stonework of the original building.
Surrounded by a private courtyard, the access door is framed by mature olive trees with outside seating, including an atmospheric firepit which you can load up with seasoned logs for toasted marshmallows, or the simple enjoyment of togetherness and a spot of star gazing.
Step inside and the look is quintessentially country with evocative wallpapers such as the 'Tree and Cow', and 'Pigeon and Clocktower' by illustrator Edward Bawden, stunningly reproduced by printmaker St. Jude’s as part of their studio archive range. The overall look is a modern twist on the arts and crafts movement balanced beautifully against the simplicity of furnishings with exceptional styling and design at its core - the Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson bookcase a wonderful example.
A bright inner hall with desk is a perfect spot when work beckons, leading into an open plan country kitchen which exudes a welcome calm with dining area in sunshine yellow and the craftsmanship showing through the mellow oak finishes.
