20 The Glebe enjoys a peaceful position overlooking the village green in the centre of Strathkinness, a village with a vibrant community situated a short distance from St Andrews. The primary school is highly regarded and there are a number of other local facilities including a village hall and a pub as well as a regular bus service to Dundee and St Andrews.
Locally there are many excellent recreational activities available including water and beach sports and nearby St Andrews is renowned worldwide as the ‘Home of Golf’. The Old Course is a regular host to the Open Championship and there are now six further golf courses run by the St Andrews Links Trust, in addition to the many other golf courses in the area including the Duke’s Course, two courses at Fairmount, St Andrews Bay and Kingsbarns.
The town is also well known for its university which was Scotland’s first university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world, founded in 1413. For over six centuries it has established a reputation as one of Europe’s leading and most distinctive centres for teaching and research. The town provides good state schooling at Madras College and private schooling at St Leonards, and The High School of Dundee is also within easy reach.
Access by rail, road and air is good. Leuchars railway station (4 miles) is on the main Aberdeen to London line and provides a fast link to Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport, with its increasingly wide range of domestic and international flights, is only 46 miles away and Dundee Airport (13 miles) has regular services to London Stansted.
The Glebe is a modern development built by Headon Developments in a prime position in the centre of the village. The development has been well planned with finishing details such as the traditional stone wall to the front of the house ensuring that it complements the character of this rural village.
The house has been excellently laid out for modern family living with a comfortable sitting room overlooking the village green and a large open plan living / dining room and kitchen opening out onto the garden to the rear. There is also a versatile family room, currently used as a playroom, which would also work as a TV room, study or fifth bedroom. Off the hall there is a cloakroom with WC and two good store cupboards.
The kitchen has extensive fitted units in a contemporary style with a number of integrated appliances. There is ample space for a seating area as well as dining table. The room opens seamlessly into the garden through bi-fold doors. The raised patio is a wonderful suntrap overlooking the lawned garden. The utility room also has a door into the garden by some raised flower/vegetable beds.
There are four bedrooms in all on the first floor. All have good storage space with fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has a shower room en suite as does the guest bedroom. There is a family bathroom with WC, bath and wash basin.
The house sits back from the quiet residential road. The main entrance is approached via a path cutting through the lawned front garden. A side access leads to the back of the house through a secure gate. The double garage is accessed from the public road through electric gates leading into a secure monoblocked courtyard shared with three of the neighbouring houses. This is a very large area which provides extra car parking to supplement that at the front of the house. The garage has an electronic door and quick access to the house and garden through a side door.
Mains electricity, water, gas and drainage. Electric underfloor heating in en suite shower rooms, bathroom and kitchen.
