Easter Glasslie House
Easter Glasslie House is a superb modern property which stands in a wonderful quiet elevated country setting, on the southern side of Fife's landmark Lomond Hills. Benefiting from breath-taking panoramic southerly views the property also includes a substantial flexible outbuilding as well as good equestrian facilities with extensive grazing and stabling. An excellent range of services, facilities and amenities are available within a short drive of the house in Leslie and Glenrothes, whilst over the hill to the north is the popular and historic village of Falkland. Edinburgh and Dundee are in comfortable range for commuters with St Andrews, the Home of Golf, a short drive to the east. Located within the outstanding Lomond Hills Regional Park, Easter Glasslie offers easy access to the beautiful rolling countryside of Fife with a lovely mix of farmland, coastline, hill and river readily accessible. Home to an array of wildlife the area also provides a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, riding, sailing and of course golf all readily available. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including the renowned Old Course at St. Andrews (host to the British Open every five years), as well as Lundin Links, Crail, Ladybank, Elie and Leven to name but a few. In terms of days out there are good sandy beaches at St. Andrews, Kingsbarns, Tentsmuir and Elie whilst the pretty fishing villages of Fife's quaint East Neuk such as Pittenweem Crail and Anstruther are less than thirty minutes to the south-east. There are several popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. State school is available locally with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews, Dollar Academy, Strathallan, Kilgraston and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Cupar, Ladybank, Markinch and Kirkcaldy with Edinburgh airport about a forty-five minute drive to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers a good selection of short-haul flights.
Significantly improved by the current owners, Easter Glasslie House is a striking contemporary house offering outstanding family accommodation of a high quality and specification, with many delightful bespoke features. Externally the house is of a part rendered, part timber clad, part stone finish with full height glazing at the western end and a sedum roof. With a stunning southerly aspect the accommodation is light and bright, carefully arranged over two levels, with the fabulous double height sitting room at the western end of the house a particular feature. The beautiful kitchen and sanitary ware are by Vidaco, with the house also benefiting from Lutron lighting and Sonos sound systems along with under floor heating throughout, mood lighting and high quality flooring which includes areas of karndean, wood and tiling. In terms of living space, the deceptively spacious accommodation offers great flexibility with a magnificent wall of bi-folding doors from the kitchen to the terrace and a cosy stove in the sitting room. Above the sitting room is a useful galleried study / office area. There is scope for up to five bedrooms, subject to individual requirements, with two of the bedrooms currently used as a cinema room / family room and a dedicated dressing room. The main bedroom benefits from a stunning en-suite bathroom with the ground floor guest bedroom also enjoying en-suite facilities. There is a family shower room, and further ground floor wet room in addition, along with utility room and rear vestibule area.
A short distance to the west of the house is an excellent and most substantial steel frame outbuilding / workshop (14m x 10m) with office area and lean-to, offering excellent very flexible space potentially suitable for a variety of different uses, subject to all relevant permissions and consents being obtained.
Easter Glasslie House stands in a sizeable enclosed garden, essentially laid to lawn with tarred drive and parking for several vehicles.
