21 Boglily Road
21 Boglily Road is an outstanding property quietly positioned on the edge of a quiet residential area just a short distance from Beveridge Park on the south west side of Kirkcaldy. Known as the "Lang Toun" the popular Fife town is very well located for the commuter and benefits from a comprehensive offering of services and amenities including several large supermarkets, shops, banks, health centres, restaurants, pubs and hospital. Kirkcaldy Farmers Market is a regular event selling high quality Scottish produce. A wider offering of amenities is available in Glenrothes and Dunfermline which are both close by, with St Andrews, Perth, Dundee and Edinburgh all within comfortable driving distance. From Kirkcaldy 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, river 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. 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 is only 27 miles distant by road. There is a main line railway station in Kirkcaldy whilst Edinburgh Airport is about 24 miles from the house. Primary and secondary schooling is available locally with independent schooling available at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee, along with several highly rated schools in Perth and Edinburgh.
Built in 1924 of white painted rendered walls under a series of red tiled roofs, with various dormers, 21 Boglily Road has an attractive façade approached by a protruding porch. The house has been well maintained and has many fine high quality features including the fitted kitchen by Loxely with "cats paw oak" fitted floor and wall cupboards with granite work surfaces.

The entrance porch leads into a broad hallway corridor (with two storage cupboards and fitted bookshelves) with doors off to a sitting room with open fire, bedroom with en suite shower room, family room/dining room (with mains gas stove and under floor heating) and family kitchen. French doors lead out from the dining room and the sitting room to a lovey south facing terrace, which looks onto the beautifully maintained garden. The kitchen has a large central island with dining area and an excellent range of integral appliances (by Miele), which include a 5 ring mains gas hob, fan oven, steam oven, warming drawer, combination microwave oven, coffee machine, fridge and freezer. An archway off the kitchen leads to a utility room, which has a Corian worktop and space and venting for a tumble dryer and includes a large Liebherr fridge, Neff dishwasher and a side entrance.

Also on the first floor is a study/dressing room and a lovely bathroom with Villeroy and Boch suite and tiles.
The house is approached from Boglily Road by two entrances, which lead to a driveway to the north side of the house, situated off which is a former garage which has been converted into a useful annexe with an office and shower room at ground floor level. A side entrance hall leads up to a useful bedroom/playroom on the first floor. The studio building benefits from fully double glazed PVC windows and it has its own mains gas combi boiler providing hot water and heating. To the rear of the annexe, and approached from a terrace by a side door, is a useful tool store.
