Nestled at the foot of the Lomond Hills, the Fife village of Falkland is steeped in history and promises an idyllic location and lifestyle for families, professionals and retirees.
The conservation village is perhaps best known as the site of Falkland Palace and Gardens a Stuart monarchy palace that is now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland. Brimming with charm and character, the village supports an array of local businesses, including a convenience store and post office, a bank, a hairdresser and a selection of cafes, restaurants and hotels catering to locals and visitors alike. More extensive retail amenities can be found just ten minutes' drive away in Glenrothes.
At the centre of this close-knit community is Falkland Community Hall, which provides a venue for classes, events and socialising. For outdoor sports and activities, on the outskirts of the village is a football club, a bowling club and tennis courts, plus a nine-hole golf course. Schooling is available locally at Falkland Primary School, followed by secondary education at Bell Baxter High School in Cupar.
The village is served by frequent public bus links to Perth, St Andrews and Glenrothes, as well as convenient rail links to Edinburgh, Perth, Inverness, Dundee and Arbroath from the nearest station at Ladybank (5 miles away). Falkland is also just a 10-minute drive from the M90 for travel and commuting across the central belt.
Set in the heart of the charming village of Falkland, this link-detached house dates back to circa 1850 and offers an idyllic four-bedroom family home in an enviable location. The property has been sympathetically modernised throughout and boasts a substantial, south- facing private garden and a detached double garage to the rear.
Welcoming you inside is a neat entrance vestibule, which flows into the reception hall. The well- proportioned living room to the left features refinished floorboards and a rustic stone fireplace, equipped with a wood-burning stove. With flexible space for various configurations, the living room flows via glazed double doors into the light-filled garden room to the rear, which offers another versatile reception room for dining and entertaining.
The breakfasting kitchen adjacent enjoys the same south-facing aspect and is fitted with contemporary timber-effect cabinets and stone-look worktops, plus an integrated gas hob, extractor hood, single oven and microwave. The breakfasting kitchen continues into the hall, which accommodates a double bedroom with a contemporary multi-fuel stove, as well as a three-piece shower room and excellent built-in storage, including an under- stair cupboard.
Upstairs, there are two further double bedrooms, a good-sized single bedroom and a four-piece bathroom. Lined with traditional panelling, this Victorian-inspired space features a classic roll-top bath with claw feet, a separate shower compartment and a matching pedestal washbasin and toilet.
Double/secondary-glazed windows and gas central heating guarantee year-round comfort and efficiency.
Externally the property boasts a substantial, south-facing rear garden. Terraced and landscaped for minimal maintenance, and populated with a selection of mature shrubs and established trees, the garden provides a wonderful spot for relaxing and entertaining outdoors. At the very end of the garden is a detached double garage (with lighting and power), which is accessible from East Loan and is supplemented with additional off-road parking. An external store to the side of the house also provides handy storage.
