A sea view and so much more
This week’s property of the week is a beautiful country home that offers lateral accommodation and excellent entertaining space amidst an incredibly private and peaceful setting, with great views over Coldingham Bay.
Set in 17 acres of grounds, Whinneyburn House offers the peaceful tranquillity of a countryside setting, with the beach and a host of activities and attractions in direct view.
The extensive grounds, with outbuildings and stables, together with a beautiful garden, offers a home for those with equestrian, livestock or horticultural interests, or simply the desire to enjoy a house with great amenity and seclusion, yet within easy reach of local services.
A sweeping drive opens up to a large parking area. The striking, pristine façade features white-harled walls beneath a red-tiled roof. The house and gardens are immaculately maintained and there are benches dotted around the house to sit and soak up the view.
At the heart of the house is the kitchen, with its bespoke, oak cabinets and granite worktops. It's a celebration of stylish and contemporary pieces that will not date, ‘mothered’ by the central AGA.
All of the public rooms have been created to capture the view, to soak up the ever-changing vista across rural haven and coastal serenity, and the kitchen is no exception. Next to the kitchen is the family room, where a large bay window has been constructed to provide the ideal dining spot.
The drawing room is elegant in proportion and oak flooring adds a warm look to the soft colour palette. Each room has its own personality and the lounge has high-calibre sophisticated finishes, such as the slate flooring and the log-burning stove.
The utility room is a country dream and bursting with storage and the boot room is a dog owner’s idea of paradise.
The ground-floor bedroom wing offers four double bedrooms and a stylish shower room. A staircase from this wing rises to the principle suite with a large bathroom complete with bath and shower enclosure, dressing room and bedroom.
Outside, there are a range of outbuildings including an open-plan style wood store and workshop/carport, barn, summer house and stable block.
The property is on sale for offers over £1,000,000.
