Slotted in between more traditional homes on the edge of Musselburgh Racecourse a brand new detached home has just been completed which makes the most of its position and views.

Enjoying a wonderful open aspect across the racecourse and its neighbouring golf course, the bespoke detached town house forms part of an elegant small development of just three properties. The other two Victorian refurbished town houses are complete and have already been sold, while the three storey town house, which has been designed by Slorach Wood Architects, is now brought to the market by the Oakridge Group.

No. 32 Linkfield Road, Musselburgh occupies the plot adjacent to the traditional townhouses and is finished to a high standard throughout with quality fixtures and fittings.

It is an impressive house. The mono-blocked driveway leads via a vestibule to the reception hall with feature timber staircase incorporating a glass balustrade with chrome finishes.

There is a wonderful open plan breakfasting kitchen fitted with state of the art stylish modern units incorporating Neff appliances which opens on to the family room and good sized dining area. There are picture windows with bi-fold doors leading to the south facing garden with a fine private patio, all taking advantage of the views of the racecourse.

There is also a useful and spacious study, a large utility room off the kitchen and cloakroom completing the ground floor accommodation.

All the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and those at the back have lovely southerly views to the towards Carberry.

Outside, there is a single garage and carport while the garden has been landscaped and is south facing.
