Property of the week: Style and sea views to die for

Our property of the week, Whinneyburn Farmhouse in Coldingham, is beautiful and stylish, contemporary and immaculately finished both inside and out.

Whinneyburn Farm, Coldingham.

The flexible accommodation hosts family, friends, workspace and leisure with ease – with excellent outdoor space, equestrian facilities extending some 17 acres and some stunning sea views.

The bay-windowed dining room has glazed double doors to the garden and southern views over the paddocks to the sea and Holy Isle on the horizon.

The location and sea views are undoubtedly key features, closely followed by the property’s attention to bespoke detailing and, above all else, exceptionally high specification and quality finish.

The property has superb sea views.

Originally a bungalow built in 1998, following its purchase in 2006 by the present owner the property was extended both internally and externally with the addition of a stable complex and ménage, with the radical transformation resulting in a modern five-bedroomed farmhouse set in 17 acres – predominantly paddocks with outbuildings and facilities for up to seven horses to live in similar style and comfort – plus large dog-proof gardens around the house.

While farmhouses tend towards a rustic aesthetic, Whinneyburn’s pristine model-like façade, are all the more striking.

Featuring brilliant-white harled walls beneath a red-tiled roof, the house is complemented by an immaculate front garden with neatly manicured lawns punctuated by similarly brilliant-white, stone-chipped beds and pathways.

The accommodation list includes an entrance vestibule, hallway, lounge, sitting room, kitchen, dining room, utility room, boot room, shower room and four double bedrooms on the ground floor.

And the master suite on the first floor comprises a king-size bedroom, built in wardrobes and dressing area, and an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower.

It’s currently on the market for offers over £950,000, so if you’ve got that in your back pocket, it’s definitely a property you should take a gander at. To arrange a viewing, contact Hastings Legal on 01573 225999 until 10pm seven days a week.
