Detached House for Sale in Dairsie
5 Bedrooms | Offers in the region of £340,000
Kilcreggan Main Street, Dairsie KY15 4SS
Nestled in the idyllic village of Dairsie and within easy commuting distance of St Andrews, Edinburgh and Dundee, this five-bedroom detached house represents a rare opportunity to create a unique family home for generations to come. Extending some 235 sq. metres, the property is presented to a move-in standard (with new carpets and décor throughout) and boasts a wealth of flexible and manageable accommodation over two levels and two wings.
This practical layout affords tremendous scope for multi-generational living with the potential to create both a self-contained annexe and a secluded master suite. With timber-framed double-glazed windows and electric storage heaters, the house is extremely economical to run, particularly due to an on-grid solar PV system, which generates an income in excess of £1000 per annum and is linked to a low-cost electricity tariff. This represents a fantastic opportunity to upgrade to a sustainable, future-proof heating system and to create a truly eco-friendly home.
Set back from Main Street behind established trees, the house instantly endears with its natural stone and ivy-clad faade. A side gate and path leads up to the front entrance, which opens into a practical vestibule and an inviting hall. The east wing accommodates a south-facing double bedroom, a dual- aspect sitting room, a two-piece WC and a utility room with an external door to the rear. This space would allow conversion into a self-contained annexe for extended family, guests or working from home.
The ground floor of the west wing comprises a versatile study, a dual-aspect family room and a contemporary dining kitchen with patio doors onto the garden perfect for dining al fresco in the warmer months! The kitchen has been recently remodelled with cream Shaker-style cabinetry and stone-effect worktops, plus an integrated ceramic hob and electric oven/grill. The first-floor level can also be divided into two distinct zones. The east wing offers a luxurious master suite comprising a large sitting room with dual-aspect windows and a rustic log stove, a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a shower room. The west wing boasts three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a three-piece bathroom and a practical airing cupboard.
The house is enveloped by enchanting gardens, which are predominantly laid to lawn and feature a wonderful selection of mature shrubs and trees. The plot also accommodates a garden shed and off-street parking for three vehicles by way of a detached garage and a gated driveway. EPC E
