Characterised by grand Victorian proportions and characterful original features, this substantial detached villa promises a charming family home including six bedrooms, two bathrooms, a new bespoke kitchen and three reception areas, with excellent versatility and potential for improved use of the rear wing.
Located close to the heart of Cupar, Eden Manse boasts a convenient, highly sought-after address, and is accompanied by an immaculate south-facing garden, a detached garage, and a private driveway, all hugged by leafy trees for a feeling of seclusion.
Welcoming you into the home is a spacious porch featuring authentic geometric floor tiling and leading into a plushly-carpeted reception hall with elegant decorative plasterwork, a WC cloakroom, and built-in storage. Leading off the hall are three exceptionally bright reception areas: a living room and formal dining room, both dual-aspect and bay-fronted, and a family room extended by a south-facing box window. All three reception areas are presented in tasteful neutral tones with beautifully intricate cornicing and attractive fireplaces, two of which are working, and another fitted with a living flame fire. Accessed from a rear hall (with a garden entrance) is a bright kitchen featuring a sociable seated dining area. The high-end kitchen is sympathetically styled with classic lemon-yellow cabinetry and natural quartzite worktops, fitted around the homely feature of a range cooker with a modern integrated hood and exquisitely-patterned splashback tiling. The space is further equipped with a double Belfast sink, an integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Also accessed from the rear hall are a walk-in pantry and a large utility room with an integrated washing machine and adjoining coal store. Stairs from the main hall, with a feature stained-glass detailed window, lead up to a galleried landing with built-in storage. From the landing, you can access four of the six bedrooms on offer, all good-sized doubles (three with a dual-aspect outlook) offering built-in storage including one room with a walk-in dressing room.
Two of the rooms boast delightful period fireplaces. The landing also affords access to a home study, a shower room, a four-piece bathroom, and a handy WC. The remaining two bedrooms, a single and a double with a period fireplace, are reached via stairs from the rear ground-floor hall and a landing with an open store. The property benefits from gas central heating and partial double glazing. Externally, the villa is complemented by a generous lawned rear garden, enjoying all day sun, and two integral stores offer external storage. A detached single garage and a gravelled driveway provide plentiful private parking. EPC Rating: D.
Extras: All fitted floor coverings, blinds, light fittings, and integrated kitchen appliances are included in the sale (also the upright piano). Curtains, and freestanding bookcases in two of the reception areas, may be available by separate negotiation.
