The East Lothian town of Musselburgh lies immediately to the east of Edinburgh’s boundary. Its busy main thoroughfare has a vibrant atmosphere with a variety of shops, cafés, bistros, restaurants and bars, as well as regular buses; a selection of supermarkets serve the vicinity. There is quick access to the By-passes which lead on to the motorway network and Edinburgh is only 20 minutes by car, taxi or bus; the local train station speeds commuters into Waverley in under 10 minutes. Schooling is convenient and highly regarded. So too, is the choice of leisure options from Bowling (of course! On the door-step) the local Leisure Centre, Swimming Pool, golf courses; sailing from nearby Fisherrow Harbour, several parks and the Race Course.
The county is famous for its coastline and the seafront is within walking distance; East Lothians’ is amongst the most picturesque in all of the UK. However, the inland countryside is also beautiful and the River Esk valley winds its way through much of it but its town and Estuary banks are just round the corner from Carlyle Place.
In recent years the prospect of living in Musselburgh has proved attractive to many; it is cheaper to buy property and, you get a lot for your money. The lifestyle is appealing and there’s all manner of community activities to get involved in. All in all, it is little wonder the market is moving with values clearly on an upward trend.
This property has style, for sure. The quaint entry is via a period “vennel” from the street, round to a charming back-lands courtyard, then through a lockable gate into the small, enclosed garden. Once inside, the contemporary finish immediately comes into play and the main public space is enormous! The overall specification is high with luxurious kitchen & bath/Shower rooms as well as tasteful décor. It has the very latest “State of the Arts” Electric central heating, double glazing and a mix of timber flooring and quality carpeting. The enclosed garden is designed for easy maintenance. Private & on-street parking.
