Property Description

Key features


Full description

Tenure: Freehold



This IMPRESSIVE, TOTALLY UNIQUE, DETACHED COTTAGE lies less than three quarters of a mile from Dalgety Bay train halt, yet appears to be set in the country. The plot that stretches to an acre is one reason. The delightful external facade with slate overhang ceiling is another. The substantial garden grounds, cultivated, landscaped, wild and open, all within the one area is another.
Beautifully restored and sympathetically extended, subjects blend the best of both worlds. The traditional dignity, history and character of an older cottage, with modern, luxury embellishments that make every room within this home special.

Subjects appreciate a character front entrance that includes front door to greeting hall. Access from here to extensive dining room left open plan to luxury, modern kitchen. Further access is given from hall to imposing lounge and beautifully presented shower room.
Access from lounge to inner hall. Completed in an " L" shape, it extends to first of all 22 feet, then 26 feet. There are double glazed window formations and French doors. Doors to 3 double bedrooms and family bathroom that is finished to "glossy magazine" standard. Master bedroom, as you may expect, is served by bespoke en-suite. At the end of hall is carpeted stairway to upper hall. The only apartment not on ground floor level is second bedroom. Eighteen feet in length, it is once again served by en-suite facility. This time it is en-suite bathroom, as opposed to the luxury shower room serving master.
Subjects are double glazed, benefit from oil heating and have a specification to include, quality integrated kitchen appliances, blinds, carpets and floor coverings. The flooring is superb with recessed down lighting setting off a number of the rooms.
The garden grounds include hard standing area at front with double garage. Side gardens and extensive rear area that takes you back to the country.
This is both a unique home and rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional cottage that is truly town and country.

Five miles South East of Dunfermline and fourteen miles from Edinburgh, Dalgety Bay is a desirable and now a well established coastal town. Beautifully appointed on the North shore of the Firth of Forth the town has historical links dating back over 800 years.
An excellent environment for commuters, family home buyers and those seeking property in a desirable address, Dalgety Bay is popular with young children, teenagers and adults alike. This is largely due to the prized residential setting with open country walks and coastal path (to Aberdour and beyond) and the wide range of facilities and amenities. Shopping facilities include supermarket, restaurants and bars.

A guest bedroom with en-suite facility? A master bedroom and the only apartment on first floor? A teenagers space with facilities?

The creation of this bathroom within the bedroom creates a new dimension to the home. It offers potential for granny/teenagers wing. Or simply a wonderful, well proportioned area that will delight.

This double garage is built integral to the building. Up and over door at front.

Front garden includes carriage driveway in front of double garage and home.
There are garden areas to both sides.

It is however the rear garden that will most impress. It seems to transport you to rural life. To a substantial, partly forested area that ensures you buy privacy with this home.

It is as surprising as it is impressive. As "behind the stone wall" lies an area that is both appealing and yet offering further potential.
It seems almost impossible to "tuck away" such a large area. Chesters Cottage manages it.

Large lawn area is punctuated by cultivated areas and mature trees. It appears tamed in places. Wild and with potential in others.
