Property description & features

  • Tenure: Freehold
  • Handsome classical architecture
  • Exceptional parkland setting
  • Tranquil rural location
  • Original period features

Whittinghame East Lodge is a handsome A-Listed gate lodge, set within the parkland of historic Whittingehame House. An outstanding example of Greek classical architecture, the detached three-bedroom, two-bathroom property exudes timeless elegance and period charm, and blends delightful original features with sympathetic modern upgrades.

Enjoying a tranquil setting in the rolling East Lothian countryside, and accompanied by a mature garden, outbuildings and private parking, East Lodge offers an exceptional rural home, close to the amenities of surrounding towns, and within a short drive of Edinburgh.

Set under a pedimented porch, with fluted doric columns, the main door opens into a hall, flowing into a spacious dining kitchen. Exuding delightful olde world charm and a wonderful homely ambiance, this characterful dual-aspect area is enhanced by tall sash-and-case windows, richly-toned timber flooring and a cosy, recessed log-burning stove. Ample space is available for relaxed seating, in addition to a dining table and chairs, idea for socialising while cooking. A range of classic wood-styled cabinetry provides excellent storage and workspace, and is sympathetic to the room’s wonderful traditional aesthetic. Accessed from here, an elegant room is fronted by a wide bay window, and features a lofty corniced ceiling and a fireplace.

Currently arranged as a home office, the versatile space could alternatively represent a third double bedroom, if desired. Also accessed from the kitchen, a naturally-lit hallway (with external access) leads to the remaining accommodation, including a charming living room, arranged around a handsome marble fireplace, and opening, via French doors, onto the garden. Classically proportioned, the reception room provides generous space and endless versatility for arrangements of comfortable lounge furnishings.

Tastefully presented and accompanied by builtin storage, the home’s two double bedrooms showcase the notable style and character of the living accommodation, whilst the principal bedroom enjoys the additional luxury of a deluxe en-suite bathroom. A traditionally-styled shower room and a WC complete the accommodation.

Externally, the home is accompanied by a gravelled driveway, outbuildings and a delightful mature garden, where a sweep of lawn and a tranquil paved seating area are bordered by a variety of shrubs, and bound by manicured box hedging and a backdrop of tall, established trees.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
