Situated within the conservation area on the west side of Falkland, within the Lomond Hills Regional Park, Young's House occupies a desirable central position within the historic village. The village square is located just down the street, and this, as well as a glimpse of Young's House, features in the TV series Outlander as Inverness.
The village offers a range of services, including cafés and restaurants, supermarkets, professional services, a busy community hall, and a diverse range of events held at the Centre for Stewardship. Surrounded by open countryside, outdoor pursuits are well catered for with walks in the Lomond Hills National Parks, Falkland Cricket Club, community tennis courts and the Falkland Golf Club. There are further attractions within the village including Falkland Palace and Gardens and the striking Falkland Parish Church.
There are excellent road and rail links making the house exceptionally well placed for commuting to Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth and the larger Fife towns. There is a local primary school and nursery in the village, as well as Falkland House School.
St Andrews lies 20 miles to the east. It is well known for its university and also world renowned as the home of golf. The city of Dundee is home to the Scottish base of the V&A Museum which opened in September 2018 to much acclaim.
Young's House is a classically charming B Listed end of terrace house. Originally known as Bayne's House, the property dates from about 1776. It is set back from the pavement on West Port with a small front garden. It was substantially renovated in 2009 with holiday letting in mind and further works were undertaken in 2012 when it became the current owner's full time residence.
The welcoming front entrance opens into the spacious sitting room which has an open fire place. The under stair cupboard has been converted to a small cloakroom with WC. The kitchen is fully fitted to include superb storage and a range of appliances. On the first floor there are two good sized bedrooms. The principal bedroom has ample space to create an en suite. The second floor has a splendid bathroom which is flooded with natural light. In addition to the double size bath there is a separate shower and wash basin pedestal with twin sinks. There is a linen cupboard which also houses the large hot water tank and boiler.
Outside there is a terrace to the rear of the house and from here steps rise up to the walled garden which has some mature trees and is lawned. There is a shed at the top of the garden where a gate opens to the path shared with Pitcairn House providing easy access from the garden to the street.
