Easter Whitehouse comprises a charming 'B' listed period family home thought in part to date from around 1700. The house which boasts generous and versatile family accommodation on two floors originally formed an integral part of a larger detached villa dating from the 1700's. Located in the historic village of Inveresk, a few miles to the east of Edinburgh's thriving City centre, Easter Whitehouse extends to some 3424 sq ft and boasts extensive family accommodation on two floors. In addition there is a large mature garden, a detached double garage and private parking for one car within a shared gravel courtyard. The property is approached via a pillared and gated entrance leading to a charming gravel courtyard which is shared with just one other neighbouring property. There is a generous entrance hall with a large modern shower room. The entrance hall leads in turn to the inner hallway where there is a cloaks cupboard and a large walk in pantry/storage cupboard and the main staircase leading to the first floor. Continuing on the ground floor level there is a delightful sitting room with a gas, coal effect fire and a charming recessed wall mounted display cabinet. Acting as a focal point to the ground floor accommodation is the well appointed modern kitchen breakfast room with Aga (including module with gas hob and electric ovens), integrated double fridge freezers, dishwasher and microwave oven and a full range of wall and floor kitchen cabinets with polished granite work tops. Beyond the kitchen is the dining room with timber floor and French doors to an internal glazed 'sun room' or 'jardin' with raised beds and tiled floor. Quietly located to the rear of the ground floor is the drawing room with a working fireplace and two sets of French doors. One set of doors leads through to a large conservatory with access into the garden and the other leading back into the 'sun room'. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a smaller and very useful kitchenette and a large utility room with sink unit, Bosch washing machine and tumble dryer, a number of useful storage cupboards, the Worcester central heating gas fired boiler, the hot water tank and a separate WC. The utility room also gives a secondary access into the back garden. There is a secondary staircase which leads up to the upper level accommodation. On the first floor the master bedroom is positioned in the middle of the house with an ornate fireplace with stove and a most rare and unusual 19c trompe l'oeil over mantel painting. To the front of the property there are two further double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom with a roll top bath and a separate corner shower. To the rear, beyond the study or 5th bedroom, there is a further bedroom that offers an en suite shower and a glass panel door to a set of stone steps leading down to the back garden.
