An idyllic country retreat
Surrounded by beautiful countryside and in an elevated position with views over the Firth of Forth, Greenkip is a four bedroom home in a stunning location.
This south-facing detached family house has a garage, driveway and extensive private gardens. Deceptively spacious, it has been significantly upgraded by the current owners and offers flexible living in comfortable surrounds. Because the home is in such an idyllic location, every room offers fantastic views.
The welcoming reception hall with cloakroom leads to an elegant sitting room with bay window and wood-burning stove within a rustic fireplace and mantelpiece. The formal dining room/family room, also has a south-facing aspect and stunning views, while the spacious kitchen/breakfast room accesses a back door leading to the garden. Also on this ground floor is a WC and a cloakroom.
On the first floor you will find four well-proportioned bedrooms, three of which face south and one which features large built-in wardrobes. There is a family bathroom and a separate shower room on this floor.
A staircase leads up to the large attic room with Velux windows and a balcony, where you can enjoy fantastic views south to the Firth of Forth. The home has a detached garage with store, and a further separate workshop or studio space, which offers plenty of adaptability. Surrounding by gardens with mature trees and lawn, and with a driveway leading up to it, this home really is a must-view.
