South Kinaldy House is an handsome B listed stone built property (circa 1803), originally a carriage house and stables, set within its own private grounds extending to 0.73 acres, located a few miles south of historic St Andrews, ideally located for those wishing to enjoy the many amenities of this ever popular town whilst living in a tranquil semi rural environment. The original property has been ecologically and sensitively renovated including south facing feature cart arch windows overlooking the private walled garden. The current owners have further completely and sympathetically renovated the property in 2009, with further renovations in 2013 and 2019, with the design and layout making it ideal for comfortable family living and entertaining. The beautiful property was originally run by the present owners as a luxury bed and breakfast, the only 5 star in St Andrews. This steading conversion is steeped in character throughout, blending contemporary boutique features with warm traditional wood and stone. The property has many stunning features from the arched double front doors opening to an inviting vestibule with double glass doors giving access to a light-filled reception and sitting area beyond. From here there is direct access through substantial double doors to the patio and private walled garden. Full height double glazed arch windows overlook the garden, flooding the ground floor with natural light, and two further arch windows, one opening directly to the garden, light the sizeable sitting room beyond. The sitting room has a local stone slab with timber mantle housing the wood burning fireplace. A beautifully landscaped walled garden lies beyond the six arches, inviting nature into the home.
To the left of the reception hall is a grand dining room for formal occasions or family meals, with a double size arch window overlooking meadow woodland. Space for informal dining/breakfasting is in the family kitchen, where Shaker-style cabinets and spalted Fife elm merge with bespoke stainless-steel units and tops, providing an impressive ergonomic cooking and eating space. The central island unit provides generous storage and is fitted with a five-burner gas hob and sizeable extractor hood above. The kitchen also benefits from a large walk-in larder pantry. There is a spacious utility/laundry room with a door to the east garden and door to south west facing garden and a staircase giving access to the master suite. Also on the ground floor is a guest bedroom with a boutique en-suite wet room and a further WC.
A beautiful ancient yew and elm staircase leads to the first floor, where there are four spacious comfortable bedrooms, all with bespoke boutique bath, shower or wet rooms featuring Hans Grohe rain showers, multi shower heads and jets, designer sinks and underfloor heating. The master bedroom suite can be accessed either from bedroom three, or from a private second staircase leading from the utility room. The master suite comprises a large bedroom with east and west facing windows, a generous light-filled wet room with multi-jetted rain shower, a large Maax chromalite jetted tub, two walk-in wardrobes and beyond the master bathroom is a separate study or office which could be a nursery bedroom.
The quiet walled garden has mature trees and perennial planting provides several distinct areas each with its own characteristics. The private garden was knowledgeably planted over the years to take advantage of its south west facing position and to provide low maintenance space for relaxing and entertaining. Organic by design, the gardens were also created to attract birds, bees, butterflies and other Scottish wildlife. The walled section comprises mature trees, conifers, hedges and shrubs bounding a large green lawn. Shrubs and trees are positioned to provide maximum privacy and shelter as well as creating a lovely backdrop and habitat for birds and birdwatching. EPC – D.
