Situated in highly desirable St Andrews, this modern 4/5 bedroom, two-bathroom (plus WC) detached house offers generous accommodation and well-presented interiors, including a generous, south-facing living room, a formal dining room, and a sunny conservatory. Furthermore, the property boasts two manicured gardens, a double driveway, and an attached garage, providing a convenient and contemporary family lifestyle.

Set behind a manicured front garden, the door to the home opens into a welcoming vestibule, leading to a hall housing a cloak-cupboard and a WC with under-stair storage. To the right, the south-facing living room is defined by generous proportions and light neutral décor fostering an airy ambience for relaxing and socialising. A large bay window floods the space in warm afternoon sunlight, whilst an ornate gas fireplace frames the room with a focal point for furniture. The dining room is next door, providing a congenial space for dinner parties or, alternatively, a fifth bedroom if required. Patio doors flow from here into a large conservatory that is perfect for unwinding in the sun. Conveniently, the breakfasting kitchen is adjacent to the dining room, featuring timber-style cabinets and light worktops which complement the splashback tiles. Spacious and airy, it affords plenty of room for a breakfast table for morning coffee. A gas hob, eye- level electric double oven, a larder fridge, and a dishwasher are integrated into the design. A carpeted staircase and timber balustrade, along with a stair-lift for accessibility (this can be removed if not required), lead to the first floor landing, which houses two storage cupboards. Four double bedrooms extend from here, all with snug carpeting and soft neutral décor for a lighter ambience. The master bedroom has the largest proportions with two built-in wardrobes for convenience and a contemporary en-suite shower room. Handily, the fourth bedroom also provides a built-in wardrobe. Finishing the home is a bright family bathroom with a modern three-piece suite, including an overhead shower. Double glazed windows and gas central heating ensure year round comfort and efficiency.

Externally, the rear garden comes fully-enclosed for pets and playing children, offering outstanding privacy and a lawn fringed by established leafy greens a tranquil setting for alfresco dining. A double monoblock driveway and an attached single garage provide off-street parking. The house is located conveniently close to Lawhead Primary School. The gate from the back garden leads directly to Strathkinness Low Road and a nearby bus stop. EPC Rating: D.
