A beautiful cottage, dating back to 1871, which served as the original clubhouse for Dunbar Golf Club, has hit the market at offers over £750,000.

The four-bedroom cottage on Golf House Road is just 100m away from the golf club, which was founded in 1856, and offers some stunning open views of the sea and the surrounding coastline.

The fifth Duke of Roxburghe, James Innes-Ker, gifted the clubhouse to the club in 1871, much to the delight of the local community. It was replaced by a new clubhouse in 1902 due to the popularity of the club and the new one has been refurbished and modernised since.

The gardens are taken advantage of by a patio to the rear with a large pond, a summerhouse and a viewing platform to overlook the sea. The cottage is surrounded by well stocked shrubberies and flowerbeds, raised vegetable beds and lawns, creating privacy for the owners.

The interior is entered into an entrance hall which gives access to all the rooms on the ground floor and the main feature is the spiral staircase.
