A charming stone-built cottage formed from a conversion of the former Post Office to create a superbly presented property, situated in the heart of the attractive conservation village of Stenton,East Lothian. The entire property benefits from a biomass burner system which provides heating and hot water throughout and a generous energy tariff for the new owner. The property has been sympathetically redesigned and extended with the creation of exceptional light, taking full advantage of its south-western aspects to the rear. The main accommodation on the ground floor consists of an entrance hall, traditional kitchen diner with an Windhager biomass burner, fitted kitchen featuring electric range style hob and oven, lower hall/cloakroom leading to the family lounge that features extended bi-folding doors facing west to maximise sunlight at any time of the year and wood burner that leads to the raised decking area of the garden and the granny flat below. The decking leads to the externally accessed and flexible accommodation below, suitable for a variety of uses and currently used as an artist's studio. The studio itself is a standalone property suitable as an annex, artist studio or holiday accommodation. It includes a shower room, bedroom and a lounge area with two double French doors into the garden. The lounge has been thoughtfully designed to maximise natural light all year round. Beyond the studio, the mature garden continues featuring a mature Silver Birch and Cherry Blossom tree, outhouse with meadow roof, large shed and double wooden doors to the play park to the rear of the property. These doors allow for vehicle access into the garden and there is stone chipped parking area at the foot of the garden grounds for two or more cars. Underneath the family lounge extension is a large cellar, which has been dry lined for all year round storage. Back in the original building the main bedroom has an aspect towards the garden and a press in each corner. Adjacent is the family bathroom, finished in white with a power shower over the bath.Upstairs is a landing suitable as a study area with more storage. There are two further bedrooms, each with under eaves storage and southerly views towards the garden. There is also a shower room next to one of the bedrooms. There is a linen cupboard accessed from the split stairway landing. The property further benefits from solar panels and double glazing throughout. The biomass burner produces 12KW of energy and forms part of the renewable heat incentive giving the property an income of approximately £3000 annually, making this home genuinely carbon neutral and as such it is part of the âgreen homes network'. Early viewing of this property is highly recommended.
