It is an architectural team we have featured before, but we think The Quarry 1960s Morris & Steedman-designed modernist property in Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland is a significant cut above that last find.
You’ll find Gullane around 20 miles out of Edinburgh and with access to four notable golf courses, one of which is British Open course Muirfield, So if golf is your thing, then this might have even more appeal.
Although this 1964 build is a draw in its own right. An angular modernist property with extensive glazing throughout, the house looks pretty much untouched over the past 50 years. It really could be right off the pages of an interiors magazine of the day, especially with the period midcentury furnishings. It’s also in two acres of grounds, so plenty of gardening to deal with if you don’t fancy the golf.
Once inside, a glazed door opens into the hall which has two built in coat cupboards, a shelved store cupboard, understairs storage and a cloakroom with WC. Off that is the sizeable drawing room with curving wood panelled ceiling, which leads into the sunroom. There are fitted benches on three sides and glazed double doors to the paved verandah and the decking areas.
The hall also leads to the dining room with windows on three sides, which connects to the kitchen and a breakfast room. along with a laundry room. The master bedroom is also on the ground floor, with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. A staircase leads to three further bedrooms with fitted cupboards and dressing tables, with attic storage available via bedroom four.
Outside you’l find a double garage with an up and over door and access to a workshop with sink, tool racks and workbench next to a freezer room with shelves. There is also a boiler room, which doubles as a drying room. Two acres of grounds too, as we mentioned, which curve around an old quarry in the centre, plus a large greenhouse with shelving and a concrete floor.
That’s only really the tip of the iceberg. We suspect this is a house you need to see to do it justice. If you want to own it, offers of over £795,000 are expected.
