Property Description

Full description

Set in approximately acre of garden ground, Gairlands is a charming detached Victoria Villa, built of stone under a slated roof. The property has been sympathetically upgraded over the years resulting in a lovely traditional family home with all the benefits associated with modern family living.

Entered by a spacious porch into a welcoming hallway, the ground floor has a bright and airy living room, a spacious dining room both with original carved fireplaces, and large conservatory, all of which provide flexible accommodation for formal and informal entertaining. The large breakfasting kitchen has ample storage including a larder, and the adjacent utility room is well proportioned providing a useful working space. Also on the ground floor is a study/bedroom 5 and w.c.

The guest bedroom has an en suite shower room and has views over the garden and beyond to the sea. There are 3 further bedrooms as well as a family bathroom. It should be noted that both the bathroom and en suite have been recently refurbished to a very high standard featuring under floor heating, a free-standing bath as well as separate walk-in shower cubicle in the bathroom and fitted furniture in the en suite.

On the second floor and accessed by way of a Ramsay style ladder is a sizeable attic, which has been floored, lined and has had Velux windows installed, and is presently used as a games room. Subject to any relevant planning permissions being granted this additional space could provide further living or bedroom accommodation.

Gairlands is situated in an elevated position on the north-west edge of the coastal town of Kinghorn and enjoys open views of the Firth of Forth from the first floor rooms.

Kinghorn has a range of local shops and services including a community centre, church, train station, nursery and primary school. Kinghorn is steeped in history as it was created a Royal Burgh in 1285 and was visited frequently by the Scottish Court. It is a popular tourist location with a sailing club, and a selection of sandy beaches including Pettycur Bay.

Kinghorn is an ideal commuter town with trains to Edinburgh, Kirkcaldy and Dundee and being a short distance from the A92 and M90. A Park and Ride service operates a bus service from Inverkeithing to Edinburgh, and Edinburgh and Dundee airports are about 21 miles and 33 miles away respectively.

Gairlands is ideally placed to enjoy the Fife countryside. The Fife Coastal path runs along Kinghorn beach heading south to North Queensferry and north to the pretty fishing villages of the East Neuk of Fife. The area is a golfer's paradise with various links courses close by and the famous courses at St Andrews less than 30 miles north.

Kinghorn has a primary school with a secondary school in Kirkcaldy. For private schooling St Leonards is only 27 miles away in St Andrews, and there is a wider selection of private schooling in Edinburgh.

A key feature of Gairlands is sure to be the garden, which has been beautifully and imaginatively landscaped with a variety of mature plants, shrubs and trees. It is fully enclosed by stone walls, which gives privacy as well as making it ideal for children and pets.

Wrought iron gates lead to a long, well-lit private driveway, with a feature circle of Indian Limestone, and parking for several cars. Further lighting has been fitted to illuminate the fountain and spectacular Monkey Puzzle tree.   To the side of Gairlands there is a large single timber garage. There is also a timber summerhouse, greenhouse and stone potting shed.
