Full description

Greenkip Dalachy is an exceptional, deceptively spacious country property offering beautiful family accommodation in a lovely elevated setting surrounded by some superb countryside and with outstanding views over the Forth to Edinburgh and beyond, just a short distance to the east of the sought after town of Aberdour in Fife. The nearby towns of Aberdour and Burntisland offer a good range of local amenities and facilities with a wider offering on hand a few miles to the east in Kirkcaldy and a few miles to the west in Dunfermline. Edinburgh is about a twenty minute drive to the south. Attractively positioned on the northern banks of the Forth the area offers ready access to the beautiful rolling countryside of Fife with a lovely mix of farmland, coastline, hill and river, the result being a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, riding, sailing and of course golf all readily available. The area is also home to an array of wildlife with the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills offering considerable scope for recreational pursuits. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the county including Aberdour itself, Ladybank, Lundin Links, Leven and Elie along with the many fine courses in and around St. Andrews with the renowned Old Course regularly hosting the British Open. In terms of days out there are award winning beaches in Aberdour as well as lovely sandy beaches at Elie, Kingsbarns, St. Andrews and Tentsmuir whilst the pretty fishing villages of fife's quaint East Neuk which include Anstruther, Pittenweem and Crail are less than thirty minutes to the east. There are a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Falkland Palace, Hill of Tarvit and Kellie Castle. State schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at a number of highly rated Edinburgh schools as well as Dollar, St. Leonards in St. Andrews and several schools in the Perth area. There are railway stations in Aberdour, Burntisland, Kinghorn and Inverkeithing with Edinburgh airport about a twenty minute drive from the property.
Understood to have been constructed in the 1950s, Greenkip Dalachy is an outstanding country property which has been significantly improved and extended by the current owner, offering scope to "live the dream" in a truly idyllic setting which is ideal for commuters. With an attractive harled exterior under a slate roof the extensive accommodation is laid out over three floors and has a lovely feel throughout. At ground floor level is the lovely main sitting room with stove and bay window ideal for enjoying the superb southerly outlook, with the well proportioned formal dining room adjacent. There are lovely easterly views from the breakfasting kitchen with the hall, cloakroom and further ancillary accommodation completing the ground floor. Beautiful woodwork and finishings are a feature of Greenkip Dalachy with a charming staircase leading to the first floor where there is a spacious hallway together with four good bedrooms, the family bathroom and a separate shower room. A further staircase then leads on to the superb open plan attic family room at the top of the house with balcony and the most magnificent views.
Greenkip Dalachy stands in a lovely extensive garden with areas of lawn along with a wonderful mix of plants, bulbs, trees and shrubs as well as paved seating areas and plentiful parking.
