56 Countess Road, Dunbar EH42 1DU

Seldom available on the market, this traditional four-bedroom detached bungalow represents an exceptionally spacious and flexible family home in the highly sought-after coastal town of Dunbar.

The property has been refurbished and redecorated in recent years, including upgraded double-glazed windows, new carpets and a solid oak staircase. In addition to vast private gardens, two sheds and a single garage, the property is also being sold with planning permission already in place for a substantial rear extension and a driveway.

Welcoming you into the south-facing bungalow is a useful entrance vestibule, which flows into a central hall. On the right the comfortable living room is bathed in natural light from an attractive bay window and from here an archway leads into the good-sized dining area and dual-aspect kitchen. With a side door to the garden, the kitchen is equipped with ample fitted storage and workspace, plus integrated appliances including: a four-burner gas hob, an extractor hood, an electric single oven/grill and a fridge-freezer. Returning to the hall, the ground floor accommodates two large double bedrooms and an immaculate three-piece bathroom with a shower-over-bath. The luxurious oak staircase ascends to the first floor, where there are two further double bedrooms and a brand new three-piece bathroom. Gas central heating and double-glazing (approx. 4 years old) ensure year-round comfort and efficiency.

The enclosed private gardens include a south-facing front garden (part of which could be converted into a driveway) and a vast rear garden comprising a patio, a lawn/drying green and two garden sheds. Unrestricted on-street parking is available directly adjacent, and the property also benefits from a single garage on Countess Avenue. EPC Rating - D.

Extras: all fitted carpets and floor coverings, curtains, blinds, light fixtures, integrated appliances and washing machine to be included in the sale.
