Sandon has a wonderful setting close to Largo Law, with fabulous views over beautiful rolling countryside to the Firth of Forth. On a clear day the distant Lammermuir Hills can be seen.
The house is surrounded by farmland. Balcormo, host to the Fife Point to Point, is only a mile away. Largo Law is a notable hill which dominates the Fife coastline. It is in the East Neuk of Fife which boasts fishing villages built around picturesque harbours and sandy unspoilt beaches. St Andrews, "the home of golf", is only 11 miles away and has one of the oldest universities in Britain. There is good private and state schooling in St Andrews, and Dundee and Kirkcaldy are both within easy reach. There are many golf courses in the area, including new courses at Charleton, Kingsbarns and St Andrews Bay and traditional links courses at Elie, Crail, Leven and Lundin Links.
Elie (7 miles) is arguably Scotland's most popular seaside village, with many professional families from Edinburgh and Glasgow enjoying holiday homes there. Nearby, The Peat Inn is one of Scotland's best restaurants.
The house is accessible to Edinburgh and its airport which are easily reached by the A92 dual carriageway from Kirkcaldy (14 miles) and the Forth Road Bridge. Dundee Airport is only 23 miles to the north. There is a mainline railway station at Kirkcaldy.
Sandon is a delightful L-shaped single storey detached bungalow in a very private setting behind a hedge-lined driveway. It has spectacular views over the surrounding fields and hills. The property is neutrally and tastefully decorated throughout, with cream carpets, cream walls, fine wallpapers, engineered oak floors and solid oak finishes.
There are many fine features to the property including the solid wooden oak steps with glass panels that lead to the raised living room. This room has a fireplace set in a tall natural stone, chimneybreast, large rear and corner windows and glazed panels commanding spectacular views over the hills and fields. There is a sliding door to a patio.
The open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area is a superb, light room with plenty of flexible space for entertaining or family living. The kitchen has floor and wall cabinets, integral Neff microwave and double oven and separate four ring hob (the current hob is ceramic but the current owners may reinstate the induction hob on request), Baumatic dishwasher and Jackson fridge, chrome and glass extractor hood, tiled floor with silver effect detail, tiled work surface and splash back.
There is a utility room with a single sink and floor and wall storage units, plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer and a recessed area with wall shelving.
The large hallway and passageways have excellent storage areas and cupboards and two light tunnels which provide additional natural light. Off the hallway is a wc with basin and heated chrome ladder towel rail and floor tiles with silver effect detail.
The master bedroom features triple fitted wardrobes with solid wooden oak doors and has an en suite wet room with tiled mosaic flooring, wc, hand basin with under sink storage, bidet, a Triton Unichrome shower, and sauna. There are four further bedrooms, each with built-in wardrobes.
The main bathroom has recently been superbly refitted by the current owners with Porcelanosa bath, wc, and hand basin with under sink storage, tiled floors and walls and heated chrome ladder towel rail. There is a separate large shower with a glass surround and a large square rain-shower head.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
A recently laid asphalt driveway leads up to the house and garage from the electric front gates which are set in a clipped hedge. The house sits on a triangular plot and is surrounded by immaculately kept lawns with flower beds, mature shrubs and clipped hedges, gravel areas, stone walls, a water feature with a statue, and patio areas including a raised patio with stone circle detail. A stone wall divides the front and rear gardens. The views over the surrounding hills and fields and towards the Firth of Forth are spectacular.
There is a double garage with concrete floor, internal units for a workshop, with power and water. A car porch connects to a separate tool shed with power. To the rear of the garage there is a further wooden garden shed and an oil tank.
