Full description

This delightful detached villa is positioned in an excellent location just on the outskirts of Crail and yet within easy access of local amenities including shops, hotels, restaurants, pubs, primary school, beaches, harbour and golf courses. Crail is the most easterly, and arguably the most attractive, of the string of picturesque fishing villages on the North East Fife coastline.

It is only about 9 miles from St Andrews with its first class facilities including the world famous golf courses, university, shops, restaurants and theatre.

Dundee is just over 20 miles away and Edinburgh 55. There are airports at both Edinburgh and Dundee and a main line railway station at Leuchars 16 miles away.
Number 2 has been successfully extended and is deceptively spacious, offering far more accommodation than would appear from the front. It is full of charm and character and although would benefit from some modernisation, offers potential to form a beautiful and spacious family home. It benefits from gas fired central heating with sealed unit double glazing throughout.

The front door opens into a vestibule which in turn opens into a large hall with doors opening to all downstairs rooms and the stairway leading to the first floor. Glazed double doors lead to the lounge, which is to the rear of the property with large windows overlooking the garden and so benefitting from natural sunlight through its south facing windows. It has fine features including a living flame gas fire and beautiful cornice work. The dining room is positioned to the front of the property and has a large bay window overlooking the front garden and a second window to the west. There is a built in shelved display alcove with lighting above. Also at ground floor level are two of the bedrooms. One has a lovely bay window to the front and shelved cupboards, and the second bedroom is to the rear of the property with windows overlooking the garden. The family bathroom is fitted with bath with over bath mains shower, w.c., sink and it is fully tiled with a vinyl floor, towel rail and radiator.

The breakfasting kitchen is a spacious room with more than enough room for a dining table and is well fitted with wall and floor units, an integrated double oven, shelved press cupboard and large pantry. The window enjoys views over the garden. A door opens from here into the extended part of the house where a corridor leads to the utility room, shower room and side door. The utility is fitted with a sink and drainer, further storage and the washing machine and tumble drier. The spacious shower room is equipped with a shower cubicle, w.c., sink and heated towel rail.

At the upper level are two bedrooms. Bedroom three is positioned to the rear of the property with a large dormer window providing beautiful views over nearby rooftops to the sea beyond, taking in the Firth of Forth, Isle of May and East Lothian. It is fitted with a large cupboard and has access to the eaves space. Bedroom four is a spacious room with a Velux window to the east. It also has access to the eaves. At this level there is a large room currently used for storage, but subject to the necessary permissions could be converted to another bathroom.

The property stands in good sized gardens. To the front the large double gates open to the driveway which provides parking for multiple cars and the low wall separates it from the main road. It is beautifully laid out with lawn bordered with flowerbeds. A path also leads around the side of the house. The south facing rear garden is completely enclosed by fences and a gate opens to give access. The area to the side has some flower beds and to the rear it is a low maintenance garden with an area of patio and some stone chips with an ornamental wall dividing from further flower beds. The garden shed and greenhouse will be included.

This is a delightful property with charming character and much scope for development subject to the necessary permissions and early viewing is recommended.
