Stunning Georgian apartment in Charlestown
Waulkmill House is an impressive stone built Georgian property built circa 1790 which sits in approximately four acres of rolling grounds and lies to the west of Charlestown on the north bank of the Forth.
This stunning and extremely unique property has been converted into three separate apartments, each with its own individual entrance, in a splendid rural setting but within easy striking distance of both Dunfermline and Edinburgh.
This exquisite double upper flat has been modernised to a very high standard and is in walk-in condition combining fine period features with modern day living. Entered via an imposing stone staircase, the accommodation comprises a lower hallway with stairs leading to the main hallway providing access to all first-floor apartments.
The stunning neutral decorated south facing living room has a feature stone fireplace complete with a charming wood burning stove. In addition, there is also a separate south facing sitting room with two large windows, Georgian oakleaf coving and a feature wooden fireplace. This large room, with views to the River Forth, provides plenty of space for family and friends.
The fully fitted bright and spacious modern dining kitchen has a full range of white wall and base units with contrasting worktop. The flooring, stainless steel sink and electric induction hob perfectly complement the room and large window overlooks the beautiful "top” garden belonging to the property.
On the lower level, the property has three double bedrooms, all with good sized ceilings and feature windows, one of which is currently being used as a study room. Also on the lower level, as well as a large family bathroom with attractive white tiling and grey slate floor plus a traditional chrome bath shower mixer, there is as a separate WC.
The upper level consists of a further two double bedrooms, one of which provides access to a large convenient utility room which houses the central heating boiler and is plumbed for a washing machine and finally a convenient shower room. The property is almost entirely double glazed and benefits from gas central heating.
The garden ground is breath taking, well stocked and maintained. There is additional woodland which extends to the Lyne Burn in the east. The front lawn to the property is shared as is the private driveway with ample parking for several cars.
Waulkmill House is part of the thriving and desirable Limekilns and Charlestown villages community. The villages are of historic importance and both have conservation area status. There are four pub/restaurants, a café, grocery shop, post office, a church, bowling green, tennis courts, children’s play parks and two harbours. Amongst other events, there is an annual children’s gala, raft race, garden show and New Year’s Day dook as well as a plethora of local clubs and societies.
Both villages are well connected with regular buses to Dunfermline. With just five miles to Inverkeithing mainline station with direct trains to major UK cities and a twenty minute train to Haymarket Station in the heart of Edinburgh, this property offers great connections to surrounding areas. Excellent local schooling is available nearby in both the primary and senior levels and there are special transport arrangements to private schools in Edinburgh and in Dollar.
