Nearby Silverburn Park and Dumbarnie Links Nature Reserve are the perfect way to explore the great outdoors.
Lundin Links serves as the gateway to the idyllic Fife Coastal Path showcasing picturesque former fishing villages, some of the most beautiful in Scotland along with tranquil beaches, historic harbours, and dramatic ruined castles. Charming villages such as Anstruther, Crail, Elie, and Pittenweem boast an array of restaurants, bars, watersports, and cultural attractions including the renowned Pittenweem Arts Festival. Globally renowned for its golf courses, the region boasts over 44, with championship courses at St Andrews and Kingsbarns. Notably, the acclaimed Dumbarnie Golf Course lies a short distance to the east. State schooling is available locally and private options include those at St Leonards in St Andrews and at The High School of Dundee. An efficient bus service connects Lundin Links to towns throughout Fife, and there are railway stations at Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank, and Dundee. Edinburgh is within an hour’s drive and the larger Fife towns of St Andrews, Glenrothes, Dundee, and Kirkcaldy are all within easy reach. Rail links are at Kirkcaldy, Markinch and Thornton with the new connection at Leven and a light aircraft airfield at Glenrothes set to arrive in 2024. Edinburgh International Airport is under an hour away by car.
Nestled in beautiful gardens and set back from the road by a sweeping private drive hidden behind manicured hedges, The Old Manse enjoys a spectacular setting in Lundin Links. Originally constructed in 1850, it has been thoughtfully renovated and extended over the years to create an outstanding modern family home that honours its character and history. The flexible accommodation is set across two floors spanning 2266 sq. ft to provide generous living space.
A charming entrance vestibule with original geometric floor tiles welcomes you into the Georgian property and opens into the carpeted hallway. To your left lies the first of the three exceptional living and reception areas, the expansive drawing room. Bathed in natural light, this south-facing room enjoys a delightful aspect over the front of the home. With a focal log-burning stove set into a mahogany mantle, plush carpeting, and tasteful décor, it exudes a warm and inviting ambience. A generous footprint and architectural archway allow for a natural division into two distinct living areas should you wish. Moving from the drawing room, a glazed door leads you into the spectacular garden room and adjoining kitchen. Designed as a welcoming space for both relaxing with family and entertaining friends, the room enjoys plentiful natural light courtesy of skylights and elegant French doors that open out into the garden. The chic interior boasts handsome wooden flooring, ambient lighting, walls in a soft colour palette, and a log-burning stove nestled beneath an oak mantle. Cleverly designed there is a seamless flow into the contemporary kitchen. Finished in classic neutrals, it features handcrafted bespoke wall and floor cabinetry, worktops, and high-spec integrated appliances that include a ceiling extractor hood, a five-ring gas hob, and an eye-level oven. A natural division between this room and the garden room is achieved with large porcelain floor tiles. Connecting the indoors with the outdoors, French doors lead you to the alfresco area and garden where you can experience captivating views of the surrounding countryside and Largo Law. Returning to the hallway and there is a convenient WC and versatile double bedroom. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a generous carpeted south-facing study with an original ornate mantlepiece and marble insert. Carpeted stairs featuring an original mahogany banister and ornate metalwork take you to the light and airy landing on the first floor. South-facing the dual-aspect principal double bedroom with wonderful views of the Firth of Forth is a most luxurious retreat featuring bespoke built-in wardrobes, carpeting and a restful colour scheme. An impressive en-suite bathroom overlooking the rear garden enhances the feeling of indulgence. Featuring a jacuzzi bath, washbasin built into vanity, wall-hung hidden cistern WC, and a separate shower enclosure, it has been designed with tranquillity and relaxation in mind. Two other double bedrooms on this floor are both beautifully presented, with the one to the rear boasting fabulous views over the garden and beyond. Each features built-in storage and shared access to the family bathroom complete with a sunken corner bath, hidden cistern WC, washbasin built into vanity, and shower enclosure.
To the front, manicured hedges and two established trees border a sweeping gated driveway creating a truly outstanding first impression.
The enclosed north-facing garden to the rear offers a picturesque retreat providing not only a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside and Largo Law, but a wonderful blend of features to cater for all needs.
Thoughtfully designed decorative paving, pretty borders, raised sleeper planters, and seating areas create a peaceful haven for relaxation, dining, and entertaining. At its heart, a carefully positioned summer house provides the perfect place to unwind and enjoy morning coffee.
Keen gardeners will also love the presence of a greenhouse and garden store, whilst the integrated double tandem car garage/workshop offers a variety of uses.
