Full description


Wester Balrymonth is a spacious former farmhouse, location in a peaceful rural location. It is a truly fantastic opportunity to purchase a large country property with extended gardens/ spacious paddock and far reaching country views to the south and to the west, all less than 1.5 miles from the university town of St Andrews.

St Andrews is renowned for its world famous golf courses, superb beaches, fine shopping and restaurants, and theatre. It is very well situated for easy access to other parts of Fife including the beautiful coastal villages of the East Neuk, and is within commuting distance of other centres such as Dundee, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, with the mainline railway station only 4 miles away at Leuchars.

This spacious property has versatile accommodation and offers a great deal of potential for development into the extensive attic, or a more straightforward redecoration project. It benefits from gas fired central heating backed up with sealed unit double glazing throughout. All public rooms have been positioned to the southwest side of the house with large picture windows in order to make best of the aspect and outstanding views.

The large lounge is to the front of the property and accessed down a few steps from the main hall. It is fitted with a fireplace housing an electric fire, with sliding doors opening to the garden and additional windows to the second wall offer views to the south and to the west. A second sitting room flows into the dining room through double sliding doors and from here a door opens to the kitchen. This also has sliding patio doors opening to the garden bringing in light and offering westerly views. From here a door opens to the utility which is fitted with sink and drainer, washing machine and tumble dryer and a door opening to the back garden.

Three of the double bedrooms are on ground floor level, two of which fitted with built in wardrobes. The shower room is fitted with a shower cubicle, w.c and sink. Off the entrance hall is another bathroom fitted with a bath, w.c, bidet and sink.

Stairs rise from the front hall to the fourth bedroom which has a built in cupboard and also provides access to the attic room. This is a surprising feature of the property measuring over 12m x 5m and offers immense potential for development into further accommodation if desired.

The property sits in approx. (0.9 of an acre) with an enclosed area of garden to the rear and a large open lawn to the side and front. These extensive gardens could be fenced to form a paddock.

There are two large areas of driveway providing parking for multiple and large vehicles and a large single garage with electric remote control doors next to the parking on the east side of the house. This has pedestrian access to the rear of the garage from the garden.
