This charming 16th century house in the heart of Musselburgh offers modern comfort with lots atmosphere and character. Only moments away from Loretto school and the picturesque banks of the River Esk, this B-listed property offers surprisingly generous accommodation over three floors with a private rear courtyard garden. Stuart House, also known as the French Ambassador's House was built during the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots making it the oldest house in Musselburgh. It still retains many interesting historic features including a priest hole, an 18th century engraved window pane and stone-carved finials. This unique home is in move-in condition making it a very desirable property. The accommodation is accessed through a secure, gated pend. A welcoming ground floor entrance hall with a generous storage cupboard leads to a bright twin windowed combined lounge/dining room made cozy by a feature fireplace with a wood-burning stove. French doors open directly to the back courtyard garden and patio making it ideal for entertaining. A contemporary kitchen
with attractive units and useful pantry cupboards is on the same floor. Following up the stunning original stone spiral staircase, the 1st floor boasts a stylish bathroom, two well proportioned double bedrooms (one with a historic fireplace and several features) and a useful study room/ fourth bedroom. The spiral staircase continues upstairs to the very generous master bedroom with an elegant en-suite shower room. Off the landing is large storage space believed to have been an original “Priest hole”. There is further storage potential in the attic. Externally, the enclosed courtyard garden offers a high degree of privacy with a paved section ideal for al fresco entertaining.
