4 bedroom detached house for sale

Property Details

This amazing property which is offered for sale is an ideal opportunity to create a stunning family home with potential for an adjacent 'granny flat', or even two completely separate homes. The property is a stone built traditional townhouse on three levels with spacious former pub premises on the ground floor, 4 double bedrooms, breakfast kitchen, bathroom and 2 further rooms on the upper floors. The property dates back to approx. 1737 and retains many original features.

Ormiston was the first planned village in Scotland, founded in 1735. It is a quiet and popular Conservation village in an excellent semi rural location, only two miles from Tranent and 13 miles from the city centre of Edinburgh with great transport links to the A1, A68 and city bypass. Regular bus services run between Pencaitland and Edinburgh which is only about half an hour or so away. A good selection of shops is located in the village including a Post Office, Co-op with pharmacy and newsagent, offering most everyday requirements. More extensive facilities and supermarkets are available in nearby Tranent, Musselburgh, Haddington and Portobello, where there is an Asda supermarket, together with a range of 'High Street' shops at the Fort Kinnaird retail park. A local Primary school is situated in the village with the Secondary school for the area situated in Tranent. Recreational and leisure opportunities in the area include a library and children's play park in the village, a leisure centre with swimming pool, gym etc. at Tranent and in general East Lothian is renowned for its lovely coastal walks and golf courses.


The property is a three storey townhouse with  adjacent outbuildings, large part-paved garden and potential for a good sized court yard with private parking. Planning permission for “alterations and change of use of flat and public house to form 1 house and use of associated land and buildings for domestic use” (Ref: 15/00659P) has been granted by East Lothian Council. More details and plans can be found on East Lothian Council's website. Change of use of the commercial premises on the ground floor to be incorporated into the townhouse as residential accommodation is in place and the property is classed as 'residential'. The planning permission further allows the removal of the extension to the rear, along with the fire escape. The townhouse, while currently occupied by the sellers, requires modernisation and upgrading but has the potential to form a spacious and unique family home.

The accommodation comprises, on the ground floor, entrance hall, former main bar, restaurant. The extension houses the former restaurant kitchen, along with gents, ladies and disabled toilet facilities.  The first floor comprises fully fitted breakfast kitchen, sitting room and a large bright family room with a separate servery off. The 2nd floor comprises top landing with glazed access door to four double bedrooms, exit corridor to the fire escape and a bright bathroom. The flat accommodation benefits from gas central heating.

The coach house has the potential to be converted into a studio, office or holiday let. Alternatively it would make an ideal garage/workshop.

The Coach house requires a complete internal rebuild and could potentially form a two bedroom property on two levels, with an additional extension if required. While East Lothian Council has indicated they may grant planning permission to split the coach house and garden off into a separate plot for development of a second dwelling house, this would be subject to plans being submitted and all the necessary consents to be granted.

The large garden to the rear of the property is partly paved and bordered by a range of shrubs and a large stone wall. The garden is very secluded and private and offers huge potential for the keen gardener to develop their own oasis.
