Broadleys offers a lovely farmhouse and traditional steading surrounded by unspoilt countryside and enjoying superb views over the Firth of Forth in the distance. The centre of Kirkcaldy known as the “Lang Toun” is only 3 miles to the north-east and benefits from a comprehensive offering of services and amenities including several large supermarkets, shops, banks, health centres, restaurants, pubs and a hospital. Kirkcaldy Farmers Market is a regular event selling high quality Scottish produce whilst the town’s Links Market, Europe’s longest street fair, with over 200 fairground rides and attractions, happens each Easter on the town esplanade.
A wider offering of amenities is available in Dunfermline which is close by, with St Andrews, Perth, Dundee and Edinburgh all within comfortable driving distance. From Broadleys there is easy access to the lovely quaint villages of Fife’s East Neuk such as Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem and Elie whilst the glorious countryside and coastline in the area comprises a lovely mix of rolling hills, woods, farmland, rivers and beaches offering considerable scope for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, riding, cycling, sailing, shooting and fishing all readily available along with an abundance of wildlife.
Without question though, it is the game of golf for which Fife is best known with many highly rated courses in a comparatively small area including the Old Course at St. Andrews which plays regular host to the Open Championship along with the likes of Ladybank, Lundin Links and Crail. Accessibility is excellent with the centre of Edinburgh about 24 miles distant by road. There is a main line railway station in Kirkcaldy whilst Edinburgh airport is about 26 miles from the house. Primary and secondary schooling is available locally with independent schooling available at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and Dollar Academy, along with several highly rated schools in Perth and Edinburgh.
The farmhouse at Broadleys is largely constructed of stone under a series of pitched slate roofs and enjoys an outstanding view over open countryside with the Firth of Forth visible in the distance.
The house is approached from a parking area to the rear of the house which leads to a family kitchen with a study off. A further door leads off the kitchen to a living room with doors off to a south facing sunroom and a central hallway. Situated off the hallway is a further reception room and a set of stairs leads up to the bedroom accommodation on the first floor.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor, which are served by a bathroom with a storage room off.
The house is in need of total modernisation and upgrading but offers the purchaser the chance to create a lovely home in an unspoilt rural area.
Broadleys is approached from the public road by a private driveway, which leads up to a parking area to the rear of the farmhouse.
Situated to the rear of the farmhouse are a range of steading buildings largely constructed of stone under a series of pitched pan-tiled roofs and in need of repair. To the rear of the steading is an area of ground, with the potential to create a small paddock.
From Kirkcaldy leave the town in a southerly direction and then follow the fork onto the B9157. Just after leaving the town and after crossing under the railway track turn immediately left onto a minor public road and continue for about one mile. The turning into the private drive to Broadleys is on the right handside at a right angle turn in the road.
