Occupying a generous plot and enjoying a lovely open outlook, this traditional detached bungalow is situated in Anstruther and offers wonderfully light and airy accommodation accompanied by delightful period features, a large garden, and a private, multi-car driveway. The two/three bedroom home provides exciting scope for modernisation and upgrades, giving the new owner a fantastic opportunity to create a modern, yet characterful home in a wonderful location.
Storm doors open into an entrance vestibule, flowing through to a hall with built-in storage, a WC, and access to a porch with storage and an external entrance. The entrance areas both enjoy delightful original floor tiles, a feature that continues into the kitchen and bathroom. To the right of the hall lies a living room, where a large bay window and a soaring high ceiling (ornamented by cornicing) create a light and airy atmosphere and a spacious footprint offers ample room for endless furniture configurations. A dining room along the hall benefits from a quiet garden-facing, sunny aspect, and a striking fireplace creates an ideal focal point. The room can easily accommodate a large dining table and chairs and additional furniture, and presents an ideal space for entertaining and relaxing as a family. Either reception room could be utilised as a third bedroom, if desired. A kitchen can be found conveniently next door to the dining room and is fitted with classically-styled wall and base cabinets, a spacious worktop, and neutral splashback tiling, and integrated appliances comprise and oven, a hob, an extractor fan, a fridge, a freezer, and a washing machine. The kitchen also offers space for a small breakfasting table and chairs.
The home's two bedrooms are situated at either side of the hall, with one enjoying the front open outlook and the other benefiting from a sunny aspect overlooking the garden.
The bedrooms both offer plenty of space for furniture and incorporate charming fireplaces. A large floored attic offers potential for future development, if desired, subject to planning permission. Finally, a traditionally-styled bathroom completes the accommodation and comprises a bathtub, a basin, and a WC. The home is kept warm by a gas central heating system and benefits from double-glazed windows.
Externally, the bungalow boasts a large, well-maintained rear garden, enjoying wonderful southwest sunshine and featuring a spacious, manicured lawn interspersed with beautiful trees and colourful plant beds, and bordered by leafy shrubbery and hedges. Excellent off-street parking for multiple vehicles is provided by a private front driveway.
Extras: All fitted floor and window coverings, light fittings, and integrated appliances will be included in the sale. Some furniture may be available by separate negotiation.
