Country home plus separate offices, a dream family lifestyle
A beautiful country home yet in walking distance to schools, amenities, golf and beaches plus a separate top modern spacious office wing with excellent access to highly trained workforce. Cherrytrees is a big family home with large mature gardens in North Berwick near a top high school.
The house has a beautiful and bright separate office in one wing of the house and is very close to train station with a 1/2 hour link to Edinburgh. The house owner will have a beautiful and big office just next door to home and highly trained staff will arrive from Edinburgh after only a short commute on the train. Cherrytrees offers excellent family life style near the beautiful North Berwick beaches.
Two generation buyers
The separate office wing of the house can easily be converted to a beautiful residential wing.
The large 10m x 6 m office could be an excellent artist's studio or workshop.
Self Cateriing Unit/Professional music studio
With special noise reduction ceiling boards and bricks built in the wooden structure, the large room underneath the office is a fully wired and functioning music studio as well as a separate self catering unit.
The floor of the large office was built with extra beams so that it can comfortably hold the weight of a full size snooker table or heavy gym equipment, should a new owner wish to use the large room as such.
Building a large second house in the garden
The large garden has space for a five bedroom house with its own access road, still leaving a large garden for Cherrytrees. Cherrytrees owns the access to the shared driveway. The plot only would sell for not under £300,000.
Conversion to six flats
For investors, there is also the potential to convert Cherrytrees into six flats by building out the back of the house, creating one 2, one 4 and four 3 bedroom flats, all with their own garden. The conversion would cost less than £500,000 whereas these flats would sell in excess of £2,000,000.
Alternatively, the office and studio could be converted to bedrooms. This would offerthe opportunity of a spacious and elegant B&B with 14 large double rooms, 12 with their own bathroom.
In 2013, the residential part of the house (excluding the office, studio and the extra self catering unit) achieved a rental income of £2,500 per month, whilst during the Muirfield Open Golf 2014, a ten day rental income of £15,000 was secured.Rental prices have risen since then.
