Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built by the present owners in 1998, Colzie House is an impressive, farmhouse-style, family home that has been carefully designed to provide light and spacious rooms that are flexible in their use, with many of the rooms being positioned to take full advantage of the views over the extensive gardens and Loch Leven to the front and the Lomond Hills to the rear.

On the ground floor, a cosy vestibule leads to a spacious hallway from which all ground floor rooms can be accessed. In addition to the large lounge which has an open fireplace set in a feature stone surround, there is a dining room (or bedroom 5, if required), a family room, and a wonderful sun room, which has views from all aspects with a door leading directly to the patio and garden beyond. The garden can also be accessed from the fully fitted kitchen, which has a good range of wall and floor units, fitted appliances and there is ample space for a breakfasting table and chairs. There is a sizeable utility room, which has one door leading to the integral garage and another to the rear of the house. Also on the ground floor is a shower room.

A feature staircase with gallery landing leads to 4 bedrooms (2 of which have en suite facilities and all have fitted wardrobes) and a family bathroom. There are ample storage spaces throughout as well as a Ramsay ladder to a partially floored attic with light.

Outside
Colzie House sits in a wonderful, elevated position with breath-taking views over undulating countryside, encompassing Loch Leven and the Lomond Hills. The property is approached by a private driveway with stone gate pillars, which leads to a large, gravel drive with ample parking and a double garage with electric doors. The attic of the garage is partially floored and is provided with electric light.

The garden is a particular feature of Colzie House as it extends to about 1.5 acres. At the front, the garden slopes gently downwards and is laid to lawn, divided on two levels by a ha-ha (sunken wall), and flanked by mature trees and hedging, which provide privacy and shelter. Shrub borders and flower beds provide some colour and interest all year round. To the east, there is a patio area, which is perfect for entertaining or simply enjoying the views in the warmer weather. There is a further patio area to the rear of the house.

At the rear of the garden are 2 traditional stone sheds, 1 of which is accessed from the farm track. There is further access to the rear of the property, which would be ideal for boat/caravan storage.

Colzie House is situated beneath the Lomond Hills in the pretty, rural hamlet of Easter Balgedie. Kinnesswood nestles along the foot of Bishop Hill, has a vibrant community and caters for some every day amenities with a convenience store, garage, mobile post office and library, and just a mile along the road is Loch Leven's Larder, a popular farm shop and restaurant. The Portmoak Festival is a significant week in the local diary, bringing together the far reaching communities of Portmoak parish and beyond. Kinross offers a good range of shopping, Sainsbury's supermarket, professional, and recreational services including a health centre and leisure campus. For a wider range of facilities, Perth, Stirling and Edinburgh are within easy reach.

Colzie House is well-placed for all modes of transportation. The nearby M90 provides fast access to Perth and Edinburgh. Glasgow can be accessed via the Kincardine Bridge and Stirling is to the northwest. There are train stations at Markinch and Kirkcaldy for example, and Park & Ride facilities at Kinross and Ferry Toll offer a prioritised commuter service to Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport (30 miles) has flights to many UK, European and international destinations.

In terms of schooling, Colzie House is in the catchment area for Portmoak Primary School, Kinnesswood. For secondary schooling, there is the well-respected high school in Kinross. The property is also well placed for some of Perthshire's independent schools along with several in Edinburgh. Buses to Dollar Academy stop in Easter Balgedie.

Colzie House is ideally situated to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside. There is no shortage of local hill walks, bridle paths and cycle tracks. There are local golf courses at Kinnesswood, Kinross, Muckhart and Milnathort and the famous Old Course at St Andrews and courses at Gleneagles are 27.5 and 22 miles away respectively. Trout fishing is available in several nearby lochs and reservoirs including the national nature reserve at Loch Leven, which includes the RSPB Visitor Centre at Vane Farm. The Scottish Gliding Centre in Scotlandwell and Fife Airstrip in Glenrothes provide opportunities for recreational flight.
