Location

Charlottetown is a small hamlet situated in the heart of Fife with excellent road and rail links making the house exceptionally well placed for commuting to Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth and the larger Fife towns. The house also sits beside extensive forests and farmland, providing plenty of walking and nature-watching opportunities.

St Andrews lies 16 miles to the east. It is well known for its university and also world renowned as the home of golf, being the seat of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and the Old Course, arguably the most famous golf course in the world. The city of Dundee is home to the Scottish base of the V&A Museum which opened in September 2018, also has two highly regarded universities: The University of Dundee and Abertay University.

Description

Woodside House is a detached, category C listed house which retains many original features including working shutters, plaster cornice work, wooden spindles on the stair banister and sash and case windows. The house lies in a pretty garden with a useful paddock which in all extends to about 1.16 acres.

The front of the house faces west overlooking open farmland and woodland. The front door opens into a vestibule which leads to the reception hall where steps sweep up to the first floor. On one side of the hall is the dining room. This is an elegant room with lovely natural light from the large window and an open fireplace beneath an Art Deco mantelpiece. On the opposite side of the hall the sitting room has two large windows over looking the garden. A wood burning stove has been inset in the fireplace beneath the fine timber mantelpiece.

The kitchen is a classic country kitchen with a central space for a kitchen table. A window with window seat has an outlook to the garden. The four oven Aga provides hot water as well as cooking. The fitted cupboards were built by The Newcastle Furniture Company which specialises in high quality painted timber units. The worktops are of contrasting granite and maple. The style of kitchen suits the house well and provides ample storage supplemented by the pantry which is located off the back hall. There is a traditional Belfast sink. Integrated appliances include dishwasher and fridge freezer and there is a microwave shelf created in the space for the old bread oven.

The back hall has a garden entrance to the house. Beside this is a cloakroom with WC and storage and adjacent to this is a large utility room with the boiler and space for a chest freezer and washing machine. This is a very practical room which also houses the oil fired boiler. It has a flagstone floor and twin traditional Belfast porcelain sinks.

The first floor has a lovely open galleried landing which allows light to pour into the hall below. Each of the four main bedrooms is a good size with plenty of space for a double bed. One is currently used as a study. A fifth room has a link door to the master bedroom and could be used as a hobby room, dressing room or a nursery bedroom. The master bedroom also has a walk in wardrobe. There are two good linen and store cupboards and two bathrooms both with WC and washbasin. The smaller bathroom has an electric shower over the bath and the principal family bathroom has a long bath and a separate shower enclosure with electric shower.

The garden is a particularly colourful and peaceful space that is a haven for wildlife. It has mature trees, an orchard, herbaceous borders and kitchen garden contained within grounds bounded by a stone wall. There is easy access to the paddock for horse or stock trailers.

The former stables and coach house currently provide garaging and workshop accommodation. These buildings would convert well to a home office or self-contained cottage, especially as there is plenty of space to build alternative outbuildings. (See planning note below).
