The property is set in a large, peaceful plot with a delightful, beautifully maintained garden and large driveway. The extensive interior is particularly versatile and offers superb family accommodation with an abundance of living space and a self contained flat within the property.
The current owner, Anne Brotherston, who has lived there for the last 30 years said of the family home: “It will be a struggle to leave as this is where my late husband and I brought up our family - the house has been a home, a family hub, but the time is right to move on now.
“Sometimes I feel like I’m rattling around in it, so it’ll be nice to downsize a bit.”
The generously proportioned accommodation on the ground floor comprises - entrance vestibule; welcoming reception hall; elegant sitting room with a bay window to the front with archway through to a further living room with a wonderful aspect to the rear and Firth of Forth.
The dining room offers doors to a study and conservatory opening onto the rear garden.

The bright accommodation on the first floor comprises a spacious landing; double bedroom one with a bay window to the front; double bedroom two which forms part of the self contained flat with a kitchen and shower room; double bedroom three, double bedroom four, bedroom six/study and a family bathroom. There is a large partially floored attic.
