Stunningly Spacious, Six-Bedroom, Semi-Detached Home. This Rarely Available South Facing Family Home Sits on an Enviable Elevated Site and Boasts Incredible Panoramic Views Over the Firth of Forth. Viewing Highly Advised!
HISTORY. The house was built by Harcus, a local builder, circa 1851 for Prof Wm Dick, the founder of the Dick Vet College in Edinburgh and a very prominent citizen of Burntisland. He lived here with his sister Mary and on his death, the house passed to her. Current owners have a copy of the original title deeds for interested parties.
With outstanding views over the Town to the Firth of Forth, this South facing family home sits on an enviable elevated site. The accommodation is spread over four floors adding to the charm and appeal and is offered in a freshly decorated condition. The most obvious feature is the panoramic views both back and front. At the front views are over to Edinburgh and beyond with the ability to see the many cruise ships sailing up and down the river, the 'piece de resistance' is Edinburgh Castle fireworks displays. To the rear of the house, the view is of the Binn Hill. There are no houses on the opposite side of the road and its large gardens mean there are no neighbours to the immediate rear. Internally it retains many features of the Victorian period including elaborate cornicing and deep skirting boards.
It is one of the hidden gems in the town sitting in a little known street with wonderful views.
The house is a great family home with 4 bedrooms in the main house and two more in basement number 25. The rooms are large and airy and the large unobstructed windows mean it is always flooded with light. The large formal dining room next to the kitchen means it is great for hosting parties and dinners. The basement has separate access and can be a self-contained flat although it is part of the main house too. Perhaps an ideal Airbnb opportunity for someone?
The house is 5 minutes walk from the thriving High Street which is well resourced with butchers, a fish shop, a Co-op, a green-grocers and many other useful suppliers. A 10-minute walk takes you to the train station into Edinburgh in 40 minutes
