Full description

Lydiard House is an excellent B Listed house, set in its generous garden and grounds, which extend to approximately 6.33 acres. The house dates from the early 19th century and has elegant, well-proportioned accommodation arranged over ground and first floors. It is an ideal family house and while the accommodation only has three bedrooms in its current format, a fourth could easily be created by erecting a partition wall between the master bedroom and the dressing room. There would also be scope to extend to property into the rear garden, subject to the necessary planning consent.

On the ground floor, the two principal reception rooms, the drawing room and the dining room, are south facing and approached off the reception hall. They are both large rooms, ideal for entertaining. The drawing room has an open fire, with decorative tiles surrounding, and the dining room has a wood burning stove. Situated off the back hall is a study, WC and an excellent dining kitchen.
This has a range of wall and floor units which incorporate a Smeg electric hob and a 1 ½ bowl sink. Built-in appliances include an oven with grill, a fridge, freezer and a dish washer. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room with a range of cupboards and a washer/dryer.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, accessed off the landing. These include a large master bedroom suite with an en suite bathroom and dressing room, which has an extensive range of built-in wardrobes. The two further bedrooms include a double and a single and are served by a shower room.

Lydiard House occupies an excellent accessible location between Windygates and Glenrothes, just off the A911, and close to the village of Milton of Balgonie. The village has a primary school and a pub (The Fife Arms Hotel) and nearby Glenrothes and Kirkcaldy both have a good range of local shops and services including a theatre, museum and art gallery, leisure centre, ice rink, public parks and an 18-hole golf course. The local secondary school is Auchmuty and private schools are available in Edinburgh. The property is ideally placed to enjoy the Fife countryside. The Fife Coastal path runs close to Kirkcaldy, heading south to North Queensferry and north to the pretty fishing villages of the East Neuk of Fife. The area is a mecca for golfers with various links courses along the coast. Four country enthusiasts, Cluny Clays Activity Centre is nearby, offering clay pigeon shooting and fly casting, amongst other activities.
The property is well-placed for access to Edinburgh and Perth. There is a Park & Ride at Ferrytoll, just north of the Queensferry Crossing, with buses to Edinburgh, throughout Fife, Tayside and further afield and there is also a mainline train station at Kirkcaldy with services north and south. Edinburgh Airport serves UK, European and international destinations.

Lydiard House set in exceptional gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 6.33 acres. It is approached by a private, tree lined drive which leads to a parking and turning area to the front of the house and the double garage. The garage block is extensive and has a store and a stable towards the back of the building. The formal garden at Lydiard House is at the rear of the house and has a large Laburnum Tree, an herbaceous border, numerous shrubs, an arbour overlooking the field at the back, a former pigsty and a door which connects through into the front garden.

The equestrian facilities at Lydiard House are excellent. The garden at the front of the house has been converted into an arena and is surrounded by a tall hedge. The garden to the north east of the house is also arranged as an arena and has a stable block adjacent with two loose boxes, a tack room, feed store and a loft over. On the other side of a track (a core path which runs through the centre of the property) is a further stable block. This has a double loose box, a further loose box currently used a storage, a hay loft, a hen run and a shelter. There are two holding paddocks adjacent to the stables and a large field to the north, which contains a field shelter. A fenced walk has been created around the perimeter of the holding paddocks and garden to the south of the house.
