    Property Description

    A traditional five-bedroom Georgian farmhouse set amongst the open countryside by the village of Kingsbarns, offering a truly picturesque country and coastal lifestyle, in addition to an abundance of living space, generous private parking, and incredible wraparound gardens.

    West Newhall Farmhouse is a B-listed Georgian property (circa 1800), which offers all the benefits of traditional architecture – the expansive rooms, high ceilings, and period flourishes – coupled with stylish modern interiors that are finished to exceptionally high standards. The five-bedroom home further boasts multiple reception rooms, including a statement breakfasting kitchen, two contemporary bathrooms, ample private parking, and magical gardens that will please the entire family. Exclusive and rarely available, the residence offers a highly sought-after rural lifestyle, surrounded by open countryside with spectacular views as far as the eye can see. Part of a small farm community, it offers a real sense of seclusion, yet it is less than a five minutes’ drive from Kingsbarns village, where a selection of amenities and a stunning beach await. It is also just 15 minutes by car from the historic town of St Andrews, home to more extensive shopping facilities, more beaches, and world-famous golfing facilities.

    With a beautiful Georgian façade, the home instantly captivates. The front door, ornamented by a half-circle transom window, opens to a striking reception hall, which catches the eye with its neutral palette, checkered floor, and traditional staircase. Two built-in cupboards provide on-hand storage too.

    West Newhall Farmhouse has a number of reception rooms to choose from. The living room, with its expansive dimensions, is the ideal space for unwinding and socialising. It features triple-aspect windows for a light-filled ambience and a stunning open fireplace with a lavish surround displaying impressive craftsmanship. Light neutral décor and a plush carpet enhance the space further, in addition to ornate fitted bookshelves which bring added decoration.

    In addition, there is a charming family room, which features a press cupboard and two shelved recesses for ornamentation. Decorated in dark olive tones and with white detailing, it is a delightful room for spending time with the family. A dual-aspect conservatory provides another space for relaxation, one that is perfect for soaking up the garden ambience whatever the weather.

    The open-plan breakfasting kitchen/dining room is a focal point of the home, enjoying a tremendous footprint and triple-aspect windows. It is designed around a central island with a breakfast bar and it features an eye-catching combination of modern white cabinets and chunky wooden worktops. It is a stylish and enduring design, which is further enhanced by sandy-hued splashback tiles and plenty of floorspace for a table and chairs. It also comes with an excellent range of appliances (integrated double oven, microwave, ceramic hob, and dishwasher, and freestanding fridge/freezer, and washing machine).

    Finished to high standards with attractive décor, the five double bedrooms all offer a tranquil space for a peaceful night’s sleep – one enhanced by traditional (working) window shutters. Each room has generous dimensions for a wide choice of bedside furnishings and all the rooms (except bedroom three) have excellent built-in wardrobe storage. Similarly, most the rooms have dual-aspect windows as well, heightening an airy ambience. Plus, the fourth bedroom has the advantage of a fitted washbasin. Bedrooms one to four are on the first floor, off a brightly lit landing that allows extra light into the home, whilst the fifth bedroom is easily accessed on the ground floor.

    A contemporary three-piece shower room serves the ground floor, providing a double walk-in rainfall shower. On the first floor, there is a premium three-piece bathroom, fitted with a P-shaped bathtub and overhead rainfall shower – all enveloped in a pleasing mix of white décor and sandy-toned tiling. The property has oil fired central heating and sash and case windows, which have a mix of double and secondary glazing.

    West Newhall Farmhouse is enveloped by enclosed gardens that offer an extensive amount of outdoor space. The front garden is tiered, with a magnificent lawn leading up to a low-maintenance area that is perfect for alfresco dining in the sun. The rear garden also has easy- to-maintain areas for summer entertaining and it is backed by a manicured lawn. Both spaces offer a true haven for families, incorporating established planting and mature trees. Facing to the east and west, respectively, they also catch the sun throughout the entire day. There is also a large driveway providing private parking for multiple vehicles, in addition to a detached double garage which has workshop space as well.
