Description

Spectacular coastal home with exceptional modern living space.

Description

1 East Bay is a truly outstanding coastal home, originally built in 1995 and now offering exceptional, contemporary and highly flexible living space. The setting is superb with panoramic views down the Firth of Forth, outlooks to the north over the neighbouring bay, and to the rear where the Forth Rail Bridge acts as an iconic backdrop. The accommodation has been finished to a high specification throughout. The roof was fully re-tiled, garage constructed and all windows and doors replaced in 2013.

1 East Bay’s striking entrance hall has breathtaking views all the way through the house to the Firth of Forth beyond, a bespoke spiral staircase to the first floor, and a large skylight offering an abundance of natural light. The principal ground floor rooms are orientated to make the most of the views. The reception areas are open plan with the kitchen and all have sliding patio doors that lead out onto the terrace with composite decking which enjoys an incredible view. The kitchen / breakfast room, which was newly installed when the house was extended in 2015, is fitted with Neff appliances including an induction hob, microwave and two ovens. The surfaces are Silestone and there is a raised breakfast bar, plus plenty of space for a dining table. The adjacent sitting room is open plan with the dining room, and features a central rotating log burner and wonderful views. The dining area features a double height ceiling with skylights above. A utility room sits off the kitchen and leads to a back door out to the parking area.

The principal bedroom suite is spectacular with its coastal outlook and a sliding door leading out onto the composite deck. It has a concealed dressing room which leads through to the en suite bathroom with jacuzzi bath, separate shower and twin basins. There are two further double bedrooms on the ground floor. One of these has an en suite bathroom, and there is an additional shower room.

The contemporary spiral staircase curves up from the entrance hall to the living space on the first floor. The family / games room is spectacular, with two sets of double doors opening onto the covered balcony with views over the neighbouring bay. The room also has a log burning stove, double height vaulted ceiling with large windows and a pair of double doors that open onto Juliet balconies with views of the Forth Rail Bridge. It has its own shower room, and the adjacent room is currently used as a gym but could be a further double bedroom.

The fabulous outdoor space at 1 East Bay has been stylishly landscaped and is fully enclosed with secure fencing along the coastline. A composite decked area at the house overlooks the garden, and is a superb setting for the outdoor entertaining of guests. Flagstone paths connect it to two separate outdoor dining areas, both looking out to sea. To the north of the house is a further terraced garden overlooking the neighbouring bay, and a small harbour that sits behind the house. A steel fixed ladder from the terrace drops down to a private mooring on the small harbour with floating Versa Dock. For those who wish to retain it, there is an annual fee of £150 for the rent of a private mooring.

The house has an excellent range of outhouses, including a garden room with electric heating, tool shed, large cedar-clad workshop, store and an integrated double garage with fitted cabinetry. The garage has a pair of electric Hormann doors and an EV car charge point, all installed in 2022. The tarmac driveway passes through an electric gate (installed in 2023) and sweeps up to the front of the house where there is ample additional parking.
