Henderson Roche is delighted to be marketing Meadowend Cottage. Meadowend is an 18th Century cottage nestling alongside a quiet country lane a third of a mile North East of the charming Fife village of Saline. Facing South West into its own 0.8 acres of wooded gardens, Meadowend is delightfully secluded without being isolated. The property benefits from genuine rural tranquillity whilst still being within easy walking distance of the village and its amenities.
The main 3 bedroomed cottage, with a little vision and modernisation, could become a spectacular home.
There is a large, partially open plan kitchen/living space, benefitting from enchanting garden views. Rising up from the main living space is a wrought iron and wood spiral staircase allowing access to the upper level and a light, bright and spacious room with commanding views of the garden below. This large room benefits from South West facing patio doors leading out to a balcony overlooking the garden and fields beyond. There is also a WC and storage cupboard on this floor and carpeted stairs leading back down to the ground floor hallway. On the ground floor and to the rear of the property, there are 3 double bedrooms – one with dual aspect windows and a large en suite bathroom.
The ground floor rear hall has a glazed door to the garden at the side of the house and another door into the utility room which has space for washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge freezer. There is a family bathroom off the utility with an electric shower over the bath and windows to the front and side of the house.
Attached to the original cottage and accessed through the same main front door, is a self contained flat, comprising open plan kitchen/ living space, bathroom with a power shower over the bath, 1 bedroom and 1 attic room. Again, a little modernisation could realise its possible potential as either a Granny/ Nanny/ Teenager Flat, or Airbnb rental space.
There are two good sized patios immediately outside the front and side doors, connected by a path which curves around the front of the house and giving access to a magical garden with an abundance of shrubs and native trees. The lawns slope down to a burn running along the boundary in front of the property then carry on up to a large, flat, wooded plateau with its own access gate and which would provide an ideal location for a free-standing structure such as a Summer house or Yurt.
To the right of the main pathway into the property is a double garage with up and over doors with adequate parking for two cars to the front and side.
The property has oil central heating and double glazing.
The picturesque village of Saline in Fife enjoys an elevated position on the Western slopes of the Cleish Hills. This rural setting provides some lovely walking routes with the nearby Saline Hill a popular landmark. There is a village shop and Primary School. The local catchment Secondary School is Queen Anne High School in nearby Dunfermline. Alternatively, Dollar Academy is only 8 miles away. A wide selection of supermarkets and shops can be found in Dunfermline. Saline Golf Club is home to a beautiful South facing 9-hole course with spectacular views over the Forth Bridges, Stirling and the Ochils.
A 6 mile drive to Dunfermline and the M90 allows easy access to both Edinburgh and Perth with their wealth of entertainment, gastronomic and cultural offerings.
Saline is within easy reach of both the Ochil Hills which lie to the North West and Fife’s famed Coastal Path and unspoilt beaches to the South and East.
