Full description

This spacious detached property is positioned in the popular rural village of New Gilston which is an attractive village surrounded by rolling Fife countryside and enjoying a very convenient location only three miles inland from the shops and beaches of Lower Largo and Lundin Links and is less than nine miles from both St Andrews and Cupar. New Gilston falls into the school catchment area of Largoward Primary School and Madras College Secondary School in St Andrews.

The property is well presented and benefits from gas central heating from a modern combi boiler which is fired from LPG gas, backed up with sealed unit double glazing throughout. The spacious rooms offer flexible accommodation on two levels and have many fine features. The large lounge is positioned to the rear of the property with double patio doors opening to the beautiful garden. A second family room is positioned to the front and is a cosy room with wooden floor and open fireplace, most often used at present as a winter snug. The large country style dining kitchen is well fitted with French oak units and equipped with an integrated double oven and hob, dishwasher and fridge and a large island counter providing working space and further storage. The other end of the room has space for a large dining suite and light is allowed into the hall by way of internal windows.

To the rear of the property with a back door to the garden is the spacious utility room which is fitted with wall and floor units, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier and a stainless steel sink and drainer. Also at ground floor level are bedroom four which is currently used as a study, and a bathroom well fitted with bath with over-bath electric shower and screen, a w.c and sink with vanity units.

On the upper floor are the three further double bedrooms all of which are fitted with storage space in the form of cupboards or shelving and hanging space, and the recently upgraded modern shower room. This is equipped with a large corner shower cubicle lined with wet walls, a w.c, bidet and stylish counter top basin with walnut counter and vanity units with lights below. On the landing at first floor level a door gives access to a large storage space in the eaves of the roof.

The delightful gardens are a particular feature of the property. They amount to approximately a third of an acre and have been designed with great thought and care. This beautiful environment enjoys many interesting features and bright and vibrant colours. In the centre of the garden is a sunken rose garden surrounded by well stocked beds and provides a sheltered seating area suitable for barbeques and al fresco dining. A large and beautifully planted rockery decorates one corner and to the bottom of the garden is a fenced off area with raised vegetable patches and fruiting trees. At the very bottom of the garden there is a gate which gives access to a strip of woodland which makes for a delightful country walk.

There is a large potting shed attached to the rear of the garage with a large window overlooking the garden. The large garage is accessed by a pedestrian door from the rear and with vehicular access from the front, and provides more than enough space for a large vehicle as well as storage or a workshop. An area of parking is found on the other side of the house.
