St Helens 1 West End Place North Berwick,

Property Description

Located beside North Berwick’s exclusive seafront, with fabulous first and second floor sea and harbour views, St Helens is a magnificent detached grand Victorian property. Retaining original cornicing, large
bay windows with panelled surrounds, tall ceilinged rooms and south facing garden, this remarkable family home is primely positioned in the heart of North Berwick. On entering the property via the grand wooden
door, the vestibule has double internal glass doors opening into the ground floor hallway. The first reception room has a bay window overlooking the front garden, an open fireplace and double doors opening into the dining kitchen. The kitchen is to the rear of the property and has ample units, some fitted appliances and granite worktops. There is a large space for dining and entertaining and access to the secluded decked area of the garden. The second reception room to the front is currently used as a double bedroom and has a feature glass door with wrought iron gate to the garden. This would make an ideal playroom or study.

The second double bedroom on the ground floor could also be used as a formal dining room. To the rear of the property is a large utility room, wc and separate shower room. This utility area also gives access to the garden, ideal for laundry, wet dogs and wellington boots. The formal staircase with wrought iron railings and solid wood banister leads to the first floor landing where the arched window floods the space with light. The second formal reception room has a large bay window and further window to the north which provide panoramic views of the sea, Craigleith Island and the harbour. There are a further three double bedrooms on this floor, one of which has sea views and potential for creating an en suite bathroom. Completing the first floor accommodation is a bathroom, with cast iron bath and wash hand basin and a separate wc.
There is also a large useful storage cupboard.

What appears at first to be a cupboard door reveals a secret staircase, leading to the top floor of the property. Time has stood still here with two attic double bedrooms, sea views and a funky lemon-lime bathroom with sunken cast iron bath, wc and wash hand basin. The property would benefit from some modernisation and renovation. It is an amazing family home and would also have the potential to split into apartments. Outside, the property is surrounded by a low stone wall and to the south, the garden has additional fencing and trees providing extra privacy. There is a drying area and greenhouse, mature shrubs and lawn. This area catches the sun for most of the day. The property also benefits from a driveway and large timber garage. This protects the side decking which is low maintenance and provides a sheltered evening space to
enjoy the west sun. St Helen’s also boasts that the famous female golfer Jean Donald was born here in 1921. Jean was a multiple Champion and was selected for the British and NI team to play in the Curtis Cup
several times.
