North Colzie Cottage Glassarts, Auchtermuchty KY14 7HT
Features & Description
Traditional, stone-built, detached cottage with roughly 5 acres of land & spectacular country views.
Covering 2,059 square feet and with approximately five acres of land, this traditional, stone-built, detached cottage offers an idyllic rural lifestyle, close to excellent amenities in the town of Auchtermuchty.
Believed to date from the late-17th century, this characterful, south facing property enjoys an elevated position on the picturesque slopes of the Ochil Hills, offering four good-size double bedrooms, multiple reception rooms and bathrooms, and a stunning landscaped garden. It also boasts spectacular countryside views across Pitmedden Forest, which it has local access to, and over the Howe of Fife towards Largo Law.
Reached by a private road, the door to North Colzie Cottage opens into a naturally-lit porch, before leading into a hall with slate flooring.
On the left is an open-plan, dual-aspect family room, kitchen, and dining area, which has a very generous footprint for large-scale entertaining. Here, calming décor is set above tongue and groove wood panelling, complemented by natural slate flooring. It accommodates comfortable lounge furniture, and offers a press cupboard and an oil-fired Esse range cooker.
The kitchen has space for a family dining table and features French doors to the garden for summer soirees.
Fitted base cabinets are topped by a wooden worktop, housing a Belfast sink and an integrated LPG gas hob, whilst exposed ceiling beams add to the kitchen's character. A neighbouring utility room provides a floor-to-ceiling cupboard, and space for a fridge/freezer and washer. Next door is a secluded home office, offering a light-filled working environment. On the opposite side of the hall is the living room, which is generously proportioned and brightly illuminated by dual-aspect windows. It features varnished wooden flooring, a neat picture rail to divide the traditional décor, and a focal-point fireplace, inset with a solid-fuel stove.
Located on this level are three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom, with under-window storage and a feature fireplace, has the largest dimensions, while the other two rooms are well-proportioned, with one providing under-stair storage.
A fourth double bedroom, with built-in wardrobes and eaves storage, is located on the first floor, proving ideal as a children's bedroom. Back on the ground floor, there is a modern three-piece shower room and a traditional bathroom, with an original cast-iron bathtub and taps (1925), and a shower-over-bath. Double-glazed windows throughout the main accommodation (except in the utility room and porch) and oil-fired central heating ensure year-round warmth, whilst two partially floored attics provide additional storage.
Outside, the secluded rear garden has a sweeping lawn, a wildlife pond, and established fruit trees.
In addition, the roughly five acres of land offer stunning open views, grazing areas, a polytunnel, a greenhouse, and a shed, as well as a basic field shelter. A communal front courtyard provides the cottage with parking for multiple vehicles. Furthermore, there is a storage/workshop for creative use.
Extras: all fitted floor coverings, fitted window blinds, light fittings, integrated kitchen appliances, and an Esse range cooker to be included in the sale. EPC Rating - F.
