Station House is a deceptively large and simply enchanting five-bedroom, four-reception room period property, enveloped by green fields and woodland, offering an outstanding lifestyle and quintessential country home in Fife.
Dating from 1907 being the original Station Master’s House, the double-storey property has been sympathetically extended and stylishly upgraded; enveloped by mature garden grounds yielding idyllic rural views and accommodating a double integral garage. The house is nestled within an area of outstanding natural beauty just north of Lindores Loch and the greater area is renowned for its outdoor pursuits (especially horse riding and fishing), boutique village shops and a thriving community.
From the front, the southeast-facing house instantly endears with its white rendered walls, period-style cottage windows and sweeping roof profile, all set behind a stone wall. The front door swings open to reveal a spacious L-shaped hallway. Here, cosy carpets and country-inspired interiors create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
The layout of the reception rooms has been designed to create series of interconnected living spaces in an L-shaped formation perfect for socialising and modern family living! The first of the four reception rooms is situated to the front of the property a large living room arranged around a cosy multi-fuel stove set in an impressive stone surround. The living room flows seamlessly into a double-aspect dining room, which can comfortably seat up to ten people. Accessed from the dining room is a delightful southwest-facing conservatory, bathing in all-day sun and boasting delightful garden views, with direct access to the outdoors.
Also reached via the dining room (and the hallway) is an inviting clotted cream-coloured country kitchen. Fitted with an outstanding range of quality units, framed by granite worksurfaces, the kitchen is a cook’s delight! It comes complete with a large range cooker with a concealed extractor hood, a Belfast sink and integrated dishwasher. It has been designed to incorporate a large fridge/freezer and boasts re-engineered oak flooring with underfloor heating. A back door from the kitchen gives direct access to the garden. The fourth reception room is currently utilised as a home office and is large enough to be used as a playroom or TV room. Station House offers its new owners five generous double bedrooms, three on the ground floor and two on the first floor. The ground floor also houses the delightful four-piece, contemporary family bathroom with underfloor heating, and a separate, modern shower room. The property benefits from LPG gas central heating powered by a combi-boiler. This, together with double glazing throughout, ensures a warm yet cost-effective living environment all year round.
Externally, the house sits in expansive, mature gardens, which are laid to lawn and planted with a range of shrubs, trees and flowers. A large dining terrace is reached from the conservatory. The property also comes with a summerhouse, greenhouse and shed. Extra land to the east and north of the plot may be available to purchase by separate negotiation with a neighbour.
A double garage (with direct access into the house) has been plumbed for utilities with hot and cold water and provides excellent secure parking. EPC Rating – E.
