Camptoun is situated in the heart of East Lothian between the coastal village of Gullane and the market town of Haddington. This is a county celebrated for its fertile soil, spectacular sea views, rolling fields and parkland. Although in the heart of farming country, the property is within easy reach of Edinburgh, some 18 miles away, either by car or by train from Drem or Longniddry. Edinburgh Airport is approximately 29 miles away and provides an increasing number of both domestic and international flights.
There is good local schooling, the property falling within the catchment for North Berwick High School. Nearby, The Compass in Haddington and Belhaven Prep School in Dunbar have excellent reputations and Loretto Junior and Senior Schools are also conveniently placed, at Musselburgh. A wide choice of private schools is available in Edinburgh.
The surrounding countryside provides a wonderful quality of life and sporting facilities. There are a wealth of golf courses including Muirfield, Gullane, Luffness, Craigielaw, Longniddry, Archerfield and the West Links at North Berwick. There is also ample scope for other outdoor activities including riding, walking and sailing. Musselburgh Racecourse has a growing reputation and there are pony clubs for the younger equestrian enthusiasts.
15A Camptoun Holdings is a superb property set within 15.8 acres of ground. The house sits elevated at the top of its plot with superb views to the north over East Lothian farmland, to Gullane and the Firth of Forth beyond. Once a single storey cottage, the property has been extended by the current owners to provide generous space for family living. The ground floor accommodation is well suited to a modern lifestyle with a large open plan kitchen with space for a dining table, which opens out into the west facing terrace. The dining room links with the kitchen and also overlooks the terrace. The sitting room is double aspect and features a gas fire and has double doors out to both the central terrace and also out to the garden in front of the house.
The ground floor has a total of four bedrooms, with three situated in the older building where there is a family bathroom and also a games room. The fourth bedroom has its own en suite shower room and also has superb views.
The first floor is accessed from a stair in the hallway which leads to a large landing. There is a second sitting room which has outstanding views to the coast and over the paddocks. Four bedrooms (one en suite) are located on the first floor along with a family bathroom.
By the house there is a large driveway and yard along with a single garage. There is an adjacent barn which is now in need of repair but could offer further storage. Immediately in front of the house is a children's play area and vegetable plot which has yielded a wide range of produce over the years. A track from the house leads down to the stables and arena passing the four top paddocks which in total extend to about 4 acres. The stables themselves are timber and there are six loose boxes between three stable blocks. Next to the stables is a riding arena which is fenced and has a sand base. To the north of the stables is a single field of about 9.29 acres.
