Rowan Lodge is an outstanding and substantial well presented detached family house standing on a superb triple plot in a wonderful elevated position. Commanding spectacular views over the surrounding countryside to Loch Leven, and with lovely very generous garden, the property stands on the edge of the popular conservation village of Kinnesswood which offers a good range of local services. A wider range of amenities is available in Glenrothes and Kinross, where a new secondary school has recently been constructed. Rowan Lodge is almost equidistant from Edinburgh, St. Andrews and Perth, all of which can be reached in a comfortable forty minute drive with Glasgow just over an hour away to the west.
Impressively set beneath Bishop Hill which forms part of the Fifes landmark Lomond Hills, the property offers ready access to some glorious countryside which is home to an array of wildlife and, for the outdoor enthusiast, offers easy access to a wide range of recreational pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and golf, with many highly rated courses within easy reach. Challenging fishing and shooting can be taken locally whilst in terms of days out there are a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Falkland Palace. The pretty fishing villages of Fifes quaint East Neuk are within a half hour drive to the east.
Good state schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at Dollar Academy and Kilgraston. There are mainline railway stations in Burntisland, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes and Ladybank with Edinburgh airport approximately a forty minute drive to the south.
Rowan Lodge is a substantial detached property offering spacious accommodation of a high quality over two floors, standing in a fabulous elevated position above the village of Kinnesswood. Located at the head of a cul-de-sac the quiet setting is perhaps the ideal location for family living. In terms of the house itself the accommodation is upside down with the reception rooms laid out on the first floor so as to make the most of the fine southerly aspects. In particular both the sitting room, with open fire, and dining room enjoy superb vistas towards Loch Leven with floor to ceiling picture windows offering direct access to the balcony. The breakfasting kitchen, master bedroom (with en-suite facilities and walk-in wardrobe), further double bedroom, charming contemporary bathroom and utility room complete the first floor accommodation. The ground floor accommodation comprises two well proportioned double bedrooms, single bedroom and further bathroom as well as internal direct access through to the double garage.
