A spectacular five-bedroom home with over four acres of gardens is for sale at offers over £1,350,000.

The Walled Garden, at Bowerhouse, near Dunbar, is a distinctive house which was designed for the sellers’ family in 2001.

There was originally a gardener’s cottage on the site, and the warm red sandstone from this building was used to create the new property and features strongly in the design.

Now listed by Savills, the home is approached via a tree-lined drive. The single storey house has a long-paved terrace to the front and is entered through a glazed hallway.

Glass doors open into the semi-open plan dining room and triple aspect drawing room.

The kitchen is a fantastic living space featuring a tiled floor, crafted solid wood cabinetry, a four-oven oil-fired AGA with electric module, a central island unit, two sinks and plenty of room for a dining table.

Also included is a versatile reception room, ideal as a library or family room, which has a woodburner and broad beech floorboards.

Also off the kitchen is the newly restored orangery from where the full glory of the garden can be enjoyed, and a utility room with Belfast sink.

A charming wine cellar incorporates part of the original old stone wall.

The principal bedroom has a fully glazed wall and sliding doors out to the garden along with a dressing room and en suite bathroom.

There are a further four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a cloakroom.

A study area is at the far end of the bedroom wing with stunning garden views.

From there the garage can be accessed via a covered loggia.

Outside, there is an open fronted studio and potting shed in the garden and an 18th century dovecot within a 1.7 acre arboretum off the driveway. There are 4.19 acres of garden grounds in total.

While The Walled Garden is an attractive and stylish home, it is perhaps the glorious surrounding gardens which make this property so remarkable.

The gardens have previously been open to the public under Scotland’s Garden Scheme and are brilliantly planted with dramatic use of colour, shape and texture, sitting alongside more classic country house herbaceous borders, pockets of wildflowers and a 'hot wall' where peaches and apricots can be grown.c
