17 acres of grounds, the property offers the peaceful tranquillity of a countryside setting, with the beach and a host of activities and attractions in direct view. Whinneyburn House is an outstanding residence of merit providing great amenity. The extensive grounds, with outbuildings and stables, together with a beautiful garden, offers a home for those with equestrian, livestock or horticultural interests or simply the desire to enjoy a house with great amenity and seclusion, yet within easy reach of local services. The house, dating from 1998, thoughtfully and sympathetically extended by our Client circa 2006, has well-appointed rooms enjoying an outlook over the beautiful and well-tended garden to the far-reaching, and mesmerising, views of the North Sea.
A sweeping drive opens up to a large parking area. The striking, pristine façade features white harled walls beneath a red-tiled roof. The house and gardens are immaculately maintained and there are benches dotted at strategic spots around the house to sit and soak up the view.
At the heart of the house is the kitchen with its bespoke, oak cabinets and granite worktops. The kitchen is a celebration of stylish and contemporary pieces that will not date, mothered by the central AGA, this is a place where family magic begins. All of the public rooms have been created to capture the view, to soak up the ever-changing vista across rural haven and coastal serenity and the kitchen is no exception. Lying adjacent to the kitchen is the family room where a large bay window has been constructed to provide the ideal spot for the dining table.
The Drawing room is elegant in proportion and oak flooring adds a warm look to the soft colour palette. A bay window provides yet another opportunity from where to survey the countryside. Each room has its own personality and the Lounge, with dual aspect position, offers a palette of textures and colours that keep the room feeling fresh but there are high-calibre sophisticated finishes too such as the slate flooring and the log-burning stove.
The utility room is a country dream and bursting with storage. Mention must be made of the boot room. This is a dog owners idea of paradise. The room is tiled in the same stylish slate as utilized elsewhere in the house including up to dado height so it is easily cleaned.
The ground floor bedroom wing offers four double bedrooms and a stylish shower room. A staircase from this wing rises to the principle suite with a large bathroom complete with bath and shower enclosure, dressing room and bedroom.
GARDENS & GROUNDS
Whinneyburn lies within its extensive and private grounds of some 17 acres. The house is reached by its own private, driveway leading to a tarmacked parking area, beyond which is the immaculate and well-tended garden with a sweeping lawn edged by and interspersed with well-stocked shrub and herbaceous borders, giving wonderful structure and colour throughout the year.
A range of outbuildings including an open-plan style wood store and workshop/carport and a large agricultural style barn lies to the rear of the house enclosed by fencing and with mature woodland behind. A terrace, summer house, and bespoke designed brick built garden BBQ feature are to the rear garden, making it ideal for outdoor entertaining.
The purpose-built stable block is as pristine as the main house with seven loose boxes, a feed store and a tack room.
Beyond the garden are the paddocks, all well fenced with gated access. Neatly and symmetrically laid out.
The manège is adjacent to the stables.
Whinneyburn is a fine country house that offers lateral accommodation and excellent entertaining space amidst an incredibly private and peaceful setting. The house is undoubtedly designed to maximize the views over the Bay and the North Sea.
