The junction to the M90 is about a mile away with the opening of the Queensferry Crossing (the new bridge over the River Forth) scheduled for April 2017.
The village railway station is on the Edinburgh and Fife Circle line, with journey times of about 17 minutes to Edinburgh Haymarket, 25 minutes to Edinburgh Waverley and 10 minutes to South Gyle. Main line connections are available at nearby Inverkeithing, and there are Park and Ride facilities at Inverkeithing and Ferrytoll with excellent bus connections to Edinburgh Airport and throughout Scotland. Edinburgh International Airport is within 11 miles and the central belt motorway network is within easy reach.
North Queensferry is a peaceful village offering a range of amenities which include a primary school, convenience store, several hotels, restaurants including The Wee Restaurant which has a Michelin star, and public houses. Nearby Dunfermline and Inverkeithing provide secondary schooling and a wide range of retail, business and leisure facilities. There is a school bus service from North Queensferry for Mary Erskine and Stewart's Melville schools, which is used by several local residents.
The Fife Coastal Path nearby is ideal for walkers and runners. The North Queensferry Boat Club is a haven for sailing and boating and golfers are also well catered for with a number of golf courses in the surrounding area, the nearest being at Aberdour and Pitreavie with St Andrews only 1 hour by car.
Shoreland is a contemporary family home which was constructed in 1976. The house occupies a fantastic waterside site overlooking West Sands Bay and the Forth Rail and Road Bridges. The scenery is constantly changing with the weather and tides and the bay is a haven for wildlife. For those with an interest in sailing, boats can be moored in the bay.
Shoreland is entered at street level from an external stair leading down to the front door. The entrance hall opens out into the sitting room which has panoramic windows overlooking the bay and bridges. A corridor from the entrance hall leads through to the master bedroom suite. This also has excellent views over the bay and has its own dressing room with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom located off. The master bedroom has its own balcony which is a lovely part of the house to enjoy a morning cup of coffee in the sunshine.
Between the entrance hall and the master bedroom is a kitchenette with a sink and adjacent to this is a separate cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin.
The lower ground floor has an excellent open plan kitchen / dining room which leads out to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of pine base and wall mounted units and has an integrated breakfast bar. There is an integrated ceramic sink with mixer tap and appliances which include a Lamona gas hob with extractor fan over, Neff oven / grill and a Whirlpool fridge. The dining area has full height windows with views over the bay and a Morso wood burning stove. There are two bedrooms on this level and one could potentially be split to provide additional bedroom space. The bedrooms here are serviced by a recently fitted shower room. The utility room has two deep cupboards (one of which houses the Baxi boiler), a range of base units with integrated sink and a door leading out to the side garden.
The annexe was built in 1981 and has recently been used for holiday lettings. It has its own access at garden level from the external staircase. The accommodation is open plan with kitchen, sitting and bedroom areas. It has a range of fitted base and wall mounted units with an integrated sink and appliances which include a Diplomat electric oven, washing machine and fridge. Adjacent to the bedroom area is a shower room.
