Situated by the waterfront in highly sought-after North Queensferry, Taigh Na Rubha is an exceptional and exclusive new-build family home that offers substantial accommodation, spanning over 3,994 square feet. Perfect for luxury lifestyles, the southerly-facing property boasts four reception rooms, four bedrooms, and four bathrooms, as well as a large balcony, wraparound gardens, and generous private parking, including a double garage with a studio flat set above. In addition, the home also features spectacular views of the iconic Forth Bridge as it spans the Firth of Forth. Inside, a naturally-lit vestibule leads through to a reception hall, which has two built-in cupboards and access to a WC. The impeccable quality of the home is immediately apparent, with neutral decor paired with a hardwood floor (found predominantly throughout this level). From the hall, there is a choice of three spacious reception areas: on the left is a southwest-facing living room, featuring modern decor and an imposing focal- point fireplace; to the right, there is a sitting room and a formal dining room, which has a stunning backdrop of the Forth Bridge. The two latter reception spaces connect to a multi-aspect sunroom that enjoys a cosy log-burning stove, access to the garden, and amazing panoramic views over the Firth of Forth. Meanwhile, the dual-aspect kitchen/dining room has ample floorspace for a table and chairs; plus, it extends to outside. It is appointed in wood and stone-inspired tones, and provides generous cabinet storage and workspace. The attractive look is finished with an integrated induction hob and twin ovens, supplemented by an integrated dishwasher, and space for an American- style fridge/freezer. A well-appointed utility room, with an integrated tumble dryer and washing machine, is next door. Four large double bedrooms are on the first floor, just off a bright galleried landing with storage. All four bedrooms feature soft carpets and built-in storage/wardrobes. The principal bedroom further boasts French doors to a Juliet balcony and a four-piece en-suite bathroom, fitted with a double-ended bathtub and a separate shower enclosure. Adding to the home's luxury credentials, the remaining bedrooms all feature en- suite shower rooms as well, for greater convenience. Extending off the landing and bedroom two, there is a large balcony that has a sunny, southerly-facing aspect and one of the best and most photogenic views of the Forth Bridge. The property has double- glazed windows, and is warmed by oil and underfloor central heating. Adding to the serenity and magic of the home, beautiful gardens wraparound Taigh Na Rubha, with manicured lawns and a timber deck looking out across the waterfront. There is also a stone bay for open fires, which easily has one of the finest views in the area, and there is informal access to a pier. Extensive parking is provided via a sweeping driveway and a detached double garage, which has a studio flat above with two rooms and a three-piece shower room perfect for creative use and as a guest suite. Extras: all fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, and integrated kitchen appliances to be included in the sale. EPC - C. North Queensferry The historic village of North Queensferry is located between the iconic Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge, on the north side of the Firth of Forth, and is an ideal location for families looking for a quiet retreat away from the busyness of the city. The village was listed by The Sunday Times as one of the Best Places to Live in Scotland in 2016, and it's easy to see why, with its picturesque pier and Port Laing beach, as well as the Fife Coastal Path offering the perfect backdrop for relaxed strolls, jogging and cycling. The village is served by a shop and is home to a traditional hotel, a community centre, and various eateries, including the award-winning Wee restaurant. More extensive amenities are available in Inverkeithing which is just a 5-minute drive away.
