IF YOU are on the lookout for a luxury apartment then this three-bedroomed property in a neo-classical mansion with its own roof terrace, wine cellar, piano, and designer silk-lined walls may be the one for you.

The two-storey apartment four can be found in Whittingehame House, a grand A-listed property about three miles south of East Linton and near Luggate Burn near Stenton.

East Lothian Courier:

Whittingehame House was the home of Arthur Balfour, Prime Minister from 1902 to 1905. It was built by his grandfather James in 1817 with Arthur born at Whittingehame in 1848.

Apartment one previously went on sale three years ago for £1.85million. 

The “well-presented” property is described by estate agents Savills as “bright and spacious” and a “beautifully presented family home” with “superb period features”.

The apartment occupies the south side of Whittingehame House and has recently undergone a full renovation to turn it into a property well suited to modern living.

While it has plenty modern features in its interior, the property is full of original periodic features such as cases windows and ornate cornicing.

East Lothian Courier:

The apartment is accessed through a grand shared entrance hallway and equally grand staircase that is shared with one other apartment, with a piano taking up a space in the hallway.

East Lothian Courier:

The large tarmac parking and turning area at the front door is shared with the other property owners.

After entering the apartment you are presented with the entrance hall, the opposite door leads onto a snug, which can also be used as a fourth bedroom if needed.

East Lothian Courier:

The door to the left leads onto a sitting room, complete with large open fire, with views over Whittingehame’s 16 acres of ground, which the owner of the apartment will also have access to.

East Lothian Courier:

The grounds are owned by the principal apartment but all of those who live in an apartment have access to them, with the exception of the lime avenue to the north of the house and the formal garden within the balustrade on the south of the house, these are private to the principal apartment.

East Lothian Courier:

Leading on from the sitting room is another hallway which provides access to the floor’s other rooms and a central stairway.

The central staircase provides access to the wine cellar on the floor below.

The wine cellar has a door that leads to the gardens through a shared hallway.

Beside the sitting room is the kitchen from Murray & Murray, its double aspect means it is large enough for a dining table.

The kitchen features an island with a polished Caithness slate worktop, solid oak cabinets, AGA, fridge freezer, wine fridge, electric hob and dishwasher.

East Lothian Courier:

Opposite the kitchen is the dining room that overlooks the front lawn and tree lined avenue. It also has its own open fireplace and is home to Ralph Lauren silk lined walls.

East Lothian Courier:

Beside the dining room is a bathroom, complete with separate bath and shower, and the master bedroom.

East Lothian Courier:

The south-east facing outdoor roof terrace can also be accessed on this floor and is described as a “fantastic outdoor space for entertaining and dining” or relaxing on those rare lovely Scottish summer days, with views over the gardens.

East Lothian Courier:

Also on this floor is access to the utility room and another toilet.

Upstairs is a linen cupboard and a door to another hallway, which provides access to another bedroom and bathroom.

Also found here is a dressing room and the final bedroom which has its own bespoke fitted bunk beds from Ogilvies of Haddington.

East Lothian Courier:

All of this could be yours for offers over £895,000.
