A rare opportunity to purchase a superb detached family home enjoying a stunning coastal location with far reaching sea views, benefitting from a unique basement space with conversion potential (STC) and an interesting history in the Defense of the Forth. Offered for sale for the first time since 1974, this much loved family home boasts incredible southerly views over the Firth of Forth, just moments’ walk from sandy beaches and a swift rail link to the Capital, providing a superb quality of life. Whilst the house would now benefit from a degree of modernisation, it offers bright and well-proportioned accommodation with uninterrupted views along the Forth from the world-famous bridges to the Isle of May and Bass Rock. There is excellent conversion and extension potential within the home subject to the usual planning and consents, with a particular feature of the home being the extensive and unique basement space. Once used as a cartridge store for the Kinghorn Gun Battery which played a vital role in the defense of the Forth during the World Wars, the space has been used for storage by the present owners. There are a number of possibilities for converting the space to further accommodation and it could be an ideal home gym space, home cinema space or games room, or indeed for equipment storage space for those looking to take full advantage of the coastal location. The house above comprises two storey accommodation ideal for family life. The ground floor has a large reception room with patio doors to the south-facing garden offering ample space for both relaxing and entertaining. There is a well-fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and ample space for a table and chairs. A separate formal dining room offers flexible space and could make a generous home office or fifth double bedroom if desired. There is a ground floor shower room and a small study/boxroom with window and shelving. Upstairs a wide galleried landing has ample built-in storage and a hatch to the loft space. There are four good sized double bedrooms, all with built-in storage and a family bathroom with three piece suite and over bath shower. Benefits include gas central heating and full double glazing. A single garage is attached to the side of the property with a carport offering covered access. There is a remote control up and over door, pedestrian door to the garden and window to the rear. There is plumbing power and light and utility space is available with the washing machine and tumble dryer included in the sale. A mature and well-stocked south facing garden is to the rear of the house and fully benefits from the stunning coastal views. It is terraced in three areas with lawn and patio spaces ideal for relaxing or al-fresco dining. To the front, the house is set well back from the street by an attractive garden area with paved driveways either side offering ample off street parking. Council Tax Band - F
