Snawdon House is built from lovely red sandstone which gives the property lots of character and charm with well proportioned accommodation.

The drawing room and dining room both feature open fire places, working shutters, deep skirting boards and decorative cornicing while the morning room is an excellent every day family room.

The kitchen is very much a traditional farm kitchen with a four door Aga and room for a large kitchen table – the study and the shower room complete the ground floor. Upstairs a traditional staircase leads to an open landing area on the first floor. The master bedroom has its own wash basin and like the reception rooms below, takes full advantage of the wonderful views. There are four further bedrooms all of good sizes and a family bathroom which also has a separate shower unit.

The house is set back approximately 1/3 mile from the public road and the house sits within five acres of mature grounds. The majority of the formal garden is laid to lawn and beyond this is an area of parkland studded with mature trees; to the east is an fenced paddock ideal for equestrian use and to the front is an old mill pond while the area to the west of the house has mature woodland.

Snawdon House is set in a wonderful position located just to the north of the Lammermuir Hills in the pretty East Lothian countryside just 23 miles from Edinburgh. The village of Gifford is just three miles, and is one of the prettiest conservation villages in East Lothian with an array of good services and shops including two hotels, a post office, a café, a village park and two golf courses. Haddington is the market town of East Lothian and offers a much larger range of services and amenities.

The guide price is £950,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 0131 222 9600 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
