Oxcars is an outstanding contemporary house in a lovely elevated setting with the most wonderful southerly views out over the Firth of Forth. The nearby town of Burntisland offers a good range of local amenities and facilities with a wider offering on hand a few miles to the east in Kirkcaldy and a few miles to the west in Dunfermline. The sought after village of Aberdour is only two miles distant. Edinburgh is about 21 miles drive to the south. Attractively positioned on the northern banks of the Forth the area offers ready access to the beautiful rolling countryside of Fife with a lovely mix of farmland, coastline, hill and river, the result being a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, riding, sailing and of course golf all readily available. The area is also home to an array of wildlife with the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills offering considerable scope for recreational pursuits.
There are many highly regarded golf courses in the county including Ladybank, Lundin Links, Leven and Elie along with the many fine courses in and around St. Andrews with the renowned Old Course regularly hosting the British Open. In terms of days out there are lovely sandy beaches at Leven, Elie, St. Andrews and Tentsmuir whilst the pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk which include Anstruther, Pittenweem and Crail are less than thirty minutes to the east. There are a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Falkland Palace, Hill of Tarvit and Kellie Castle. State schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at a number of highly rated Edinburgh schools as well as Dollar, St. Leonards in St. Andrews and several schools in the Perth area. There are railway stations in Burntisland itself, Aberdour, Kinghorn and Inverkeithing with Edinburgh Airport about a twenty minute drive from the property.
Completed about ten years ago as part of the sought after Kilmundy Steading development, Oxcars is a superb family house offering spacious accommodation over three levels finished to a very high quality with many delightful contemporary features. Perched high above the Forth on the south side of the Kilmundy Steading, the views are quite breath-taking across to the Firth of Forth and Edinburgh in the distance.
Internally the house is finished to an exceptionally high standard offering spacious and well proportioned accommodation over three levels extending to about 280 sqm and is ideal for entertaining and modern family living. The property has under floor heating throughout and most of the rooms have Brazilian Dark Walnut hardwood flooring and the kitchen has lime stone tiles. The house connects well with the outside space with glazed double doors leading out from the spacious kitchen/dining room to a lovely south facing terrace. The handmade kitchen units were fitted by a local craftsman and offer a central island. Situated off the kitchen are a dining area and sitting area with a wall mounted television and doors lead off to a utility room and cloakroom with a Swedish sauna. The German oak staircase (by Kengott) leads up to the first and second floors and the stairwell and broad landings are flooded by light from three large velux windows.
The first floor accommodation is approached by a broad galleried landing with a spacious study area and doors lead off to a master bedroom with a cathedral ceiling and glazed doors leading out to a balcony contained by glass balustrades. The master bedroom is served by an en suite shower room and benefits from a separate dressing room. Also on the first floor is a further bedroom, WC and impressive reception room with a stove and glazed doors leading out to a large deck with outstanding views.
The second floor offers three bedrooms (one en suite and with dressing room) as well as a family bathroom and a study area off the galleried landing.
The house is approached by a shared gravel driveway which leads into a lovely private garden contained by stone walls and wooden fencing with a generous parking area, terraced lawn and garage built beneath the first floor deck.
