Kingswood is an impressive and unique family home in East Lothian, set in over an acre of beautifully maintained private grounds. The house itself is over 5000 square feet and offers spacious and flexible family accommodation in an enviable location.
Set over two principal floors: The entrance vestibule opens through a timber and glazed door to the welcoming reception hall from where the principal reception rooms are accessed and the stairs rise to the upper floor. The drawing room lies at the east of the property and extends from front to back with both south and north facing aspects over both gardens. It is a bright room and has a conservatory with access to the terrace and garden. The elegant dining room is also situated off the hallway, and connects to the luxury breakfasting kitchen with a lower level informal dining area with family room off, both of which have French windows opening to the rear decked terrace. The study lies to the front of the house. There are three bedroom and a family bathroom on this floor, as well as access to the sizeable double garage. There is also a self contained flat, with separate access to the rear of the house, comprising a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and shower room. There is an additional downstairs cloakroom and splendid snooker room with full sized snooker table included with sale.
The upper floor landing gives access to four further bedrooms, two of which share a 'Jack and Jill' shower room. There is also a family bath and shower room at this level. There is superb light on this floor as well as beautifully open aspects and views over front and rear gardens.
