Property Description:

This impressive, four bedroom detached house has a fantastic position in this secluded cul de sac on the edge of Muirfield golf course and a short stroll from the beach.  A pleasant walk takes you into the village itself and for a scenic walk a gate leading from the street takes you across grass land to the beach.

On the south coast of the Firth of Forth, Gullane is an especially attractive conservation village some twenty miles from Edinburgh.  From Gullane Hill there are magnificent views towards the Lammermuir Hills, the coast of Fife and Edinburgh and Gullane Bents is one of the best beaches in the area.

Main Street has a selection of shops including a bakery, pharmacy and two small supermarkets.

There is an excellent primary school, library and numerous attractive eating places and cafes to choose from.

Gullane is primarily known for its golf which has been played here since 1854. The three courses of Gullane offer excellent golf while five minutes in the car will take you to the Open Championship Course of Muirfield. With a number of quality courses in the immediate area including The West and The Glen in North Berwick, Archerfield, Luffness and Craigielaw to name but a few, this is a golfer’s paradise.

Five miles east, North Berwick offers excellent secondary schooling, additional shopping and recreational activities including the Sea Bird Centre and a sports centre with swimming pool. 

A regular rail service from North Berwick and Drem and a direct bus service from Gullane provide easy access to Edinburgh for the commuter and the proximity to the A1 means travelling by road to the city, the city bypass and the airport is easy.
