Built by architect Frank Sproson in 1957, this five-bedroom, three-bathroom detached bungalow is nestled on leafy Hepburn Gardens in exclusive St Andrews. The property boasts a unique layout comprising a three-bedroom main house and a two-bedroom annexe that would be perfect for elderly relatives or independent older children.
A much-loved family home over the years, the bungalow offers its new owners a blank canvas to create an ideal modern home to suit their own tastes and requirements. Externally, the property is accompanied by vast garden grounds, a detached double garage and a large driveway.
The main house is entered via double doors opening into an entrance vestibule, flowing through to a large reception hall with built-in storage. On your right, you step into a south-facing, semi-open-plan living area. Here the dining room and living room are visually separated by a partial wall with a fireplace and fitted shelving. The living room also boasts patio doors onto the rear garden and incorporates a study with a wealth of fitted bookshelves. Conveniently accessed from the dining room, the breakfasting kitchen is fitted with extensive wall and base cabinets, plus an integrated gas hob, an integrated double oven/grill, an integrated fridge and a freestanding dishwasher. An adjoining utility room (with external access) houses built-in storage and further appliances. Also located in the main house are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, a bathroom and a shower room. The bedrooms all incorporate storage, whilst the sunny master bedroom also features a garden entrance.
The annexe can be accessed via the utility room or its own front door, which opens into a vestibule flowing through to a hall. Straight ahead, you step into a well- proportioned living/dining room. Lit by a large southerly- facing window, allowing sunshine to stream in and framing garden views, this reception area promises fantastic flexibility for lounge and dining furniture, and affords access to a triple-aspect sunroom (with garden access). The kitchen is connected to the living/dining room and is equipped with contemporary, gloss-white cabinets paired with ample workspace, plus a full complement of integrated appliances: an electric oven and hob, an extractor fan, a fridge, a freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine. The annexe houses two double bedrooms with built-in storage and a fully-tiled bathroom comprising a bathtub with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, a washbasin, a toilet and a chrome towel radiator. The property benefits from gas central heating and predominantly double-glazed windows.
Outside, the detached bungalow is surrounded by mature, extensive garden grounds featuring lawns, patios, trees, leafy shrubbery and a charming summer house. The main garden areas are private and not overlooked, affording extensive long views to the south and west due to their elevated position. The property benefits from a gated access to the Lade Braes, a footpath and parkland alongside the Kinness Burn leading into St Andrews. External storage and a greenhouse can be found to the front of the property, along with a detached double garage and a generous multi-vehicle driveway.
