5 bedroom detached house for sale

Property Details

Duncan Laing and RE/MAX are delighted to present to the market this exceptionally spacious, South facing, detached 5 Bedroom (one en-suite) Villa. The property is set on a substantial plot in a deceptively quiet and private lane just off Edinburgh Rd within the East Lothian town of Tranent. The large garden grounds are a credit to the current owner, enjoying a sunny aspect in a peaceful and leafy setting. Viewforth Gardens' quiet and private setting belies its proximity to all the local shopping and amenities available in Tranent, as well as the main road network and bus routes. Although in need of some modernisation, opportunities such as this seldom present themselves and we would recommend that viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate what is on offer.

Tranent is located within the picturesque County of East Lothian with its seaside villages and towns of Dunbar, Longniddry, Gullane and North Berwick, with their golf courses and sandy beaches, as is East Lothian’s County Town of Haddington. For the golfer there are numerous golf courses in the area, the most famous of which being the championship course at Muirfield.

Tranent benefits from schooling at nursery, primary and secondary levels within the town itself. Shopping is catered for locally with a variety of local shops etc in the High Street as well as an ASDA and Aldi supermarkets in the town centre. There are regular bus services from Tranent and regular train services from the nearby towns of Prestonpans, Wallyford and Newcraighall, all providing excellent park and ride facilities to Edinburgh City Centre, which makes Tranent ideal for the commuter. The Edinburgh City By-Pass and the A1 are also nearby giving access to excellent road links to Edinburgh, the International Airport and beyond to other areas of Central Scotland.
