19 Main Street, Strathkinness KY16 9RY
This handsome historic home, circa 1830, sits on a corner plot and can be accessed from both Main Street and Sunnyside. The spacious adaptable accommodation has period features including exposed stone walls. The house benefits from a garage and further outbuildings, a drive and gardens.
Steeped in history, this superb property has been a public house, a joiner's house and workshop and a bakery in the past. It was known as the Strathkinness Arms in the early days and Laings Inn from the 1930s. After the 2nd World War the house became a bakery for a short time before being let to the RAF until the current owner bought the property in 1965.
The reception hall leads to a grand dining reception room, where fireplaces at either end of the room add to the grandeur. The room is dual aspect and flooded with natural light making the most of the exposed stone walls. The fourth bedroom or family sitting room features parquet flooring and a door leading out directly to the back garden. The wc cloaks has a deep storage cupboard. The inner hall has acted as a breakfast room and would also make a good home office space. The large dining kitchen features the exposed brickwork of an original old bakery oven and a useful walk in pantry. A spacious utility room leads in turn to the garage.
The first floor has three further double bedrooms, two of which benefit from fitted wardrobes. All bedrooms have exposed beams, the third bedroom enjoys a nice side-view window. The family bathroom has a large cast iron bath, wash hand basin and wc. The upper hall has fitted bookshelves and would make an ideal second study.
The mature garden has an attractive herringbone brick seating area, grass, mature shrubs and a storage shed. The workshop which can be accessed from the house measures a generous 6.4m by 3.3m. The garage and drive, accessed from Sunnyside, complete the property. EPC Rating: E.
