4 bedroom detached house for saleSeaside Place, Aberdour, Burntisland, Fife
Dating back to the mid-19th century, St Helen's is a substantial, detached family home, which has been extended and upgraded by the present owner to create a home well suited to modern family living, whilst still retaining many charming, period features. It sits in an elevated position with pretty views over the Firth of Forth from the front, first floor bedrooms.
An inviting vestibule gives access to the reception hallway off which is the sitting room, which features an open fire, ornate cornicing and a large bay window overlooking the front. A door from the sitting room gives access to the formal dining room. To the rear of the hall is the superb, open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room extension, which was completed in 2010 and cleverly blends the traditional with the contemporary, which is sure to appeal to those with either taste. There are a variety of floor and wall units, fitted appliances (oven, hob, microwave, warming drawer, fridge and freezer) as well as a large central island unit. The bi-fold doors allow easy access to the garden in the warmer weather and a modern, log-style, gas fire creates a cosy feel in the colder weather. Also on the ground floor is luxurious shower room and a large fully fitted utility room.
A light and graceful staircase with wrought iron balustrade gives access to the first floor, where there are four well-proportioned bedrooms, a notable family bathroom with free-standing bath, fitted furniture and separate shower cubicle and a separate WC.
There is a small garden to the front, which is planted with a variety of shrubs. The walled, rear garden is a wonderful feature of the property. Accessed direct from the house, as well as a timber side gate, it has a large area of lawn flanked by herbaceous borders, raised flower beds and a rockery. The abundance of larger shrubs and trees provide shelter and privacy and a colourful outlook from the house. A block-paved pathway leads up to a pretty summerhouse and seating area. There are several other patio areas including under the pergola, and a pretty courtyard area outside the dining room.
St Helen's is situated in the picturesque, coastal village of Aberdour, which lies on the north shore of the Firth of Forth looking south to the island of Inchcolm with Edinburgh in the distance. The village caters for everyday amenities with supermarket, local stores, post office, pharmacy, gift shops, cafes, traditional pubs, restaurants and hotel. The village has a bustling community with many events throughout the year including the annual summer festival of music, events and culture.
Aberdour has a primary school with secondary schooling in Inverkeithing. For private education, St Leonards in St Andrews is 38 miles away, and there is a range of private schools in Edinburgh.
The property benefits from excellent transportation links with trains south to Edinburgh and north to Dundee. The A92 and M90 are the main arterial roads throughout the county. There is a Park & Ride at Ferrytoll, which operates bus services into Edinburgh and north throughout Scotland. Edinburgh airport (15.5 miles) serves many UK, European and international destinations.
The property is well-placed to enjoy the Fife countryside. The beaches, Silver and Black Sands, are linked by the Fife Coastal Path which runs from the Forth Estuary, through the pretty fishing villages of the East Neuk up to the Tay Estuary. The area is a golfer's paradise with many links courses in the area. For country sports enthusiasts, Cluny Clays activity centre is 12.5 miles with clay pigeon shooting and fly casting, amongst other leisure activities.
