Big thanks to @LothianLoop on Twitter for pointing us in the direct of this Illetas 1960s modernist property in Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland, which certainly needs some work.
But it has a good number of selling points too. Dating from the 1960s, the property is situated in a ‘very attractive garden setting’ just off Goose Green in the ‘picturesque’ seaside village of Gullane. Location sounds like a selling point.
As for the house, it is accessed by double wrought iron gates leading to a short driveway and through secluded and partially walled gardens, which sounds like a substantial plot (the exact size isn’t given). Worryingly, the agents points out that the plot could be used for a ‘replacement two storey dwelling house’ with the right planning permission. So time could be ticking away on the actual house.
Talking of the house, it’s an interesting property, but one that is definitely in need of work. Some nice period features survive (the ceilings, the windows and the bright open-plan layout for ex`mole), but you will need to spend on it. Saying that, we can see central heating in there, so perhaps not as much as you would initially think.
As for the layout, it currently offers an entrance hallway, open plan living room/dining room with full height windows overlooking the garden, kitchen/breakfast room, internal hall leading to master bedroom, double bedroom two, bedroom three and a family bathroom. There are services of mains gas, electricity, water and sewerage.
Offers over £295,000 if you are interested.
