Seaways occupies a prime position within the Fife village of Dalgety Bay, its south-facing garden overlooking the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh and beyond. The coastal position provides private access onto the popular Fife Coastal Path and down towards the tidal beach, tucked under the historic ruins of St Bridget's Kirk.
Whilst conveniently located within close proximity to the bridges and their fantastic transport links, Seaways is an oasis of tranquillity due to its generous garden and coastal views. The property is well positioned for commuting to Edinburgh, Dunfermline, Perth and even to Glasgow: the junction to the M90 and the Queensferry Crossing is about 3 miles away. The town's railway station is on the mainline between Aberdeen and Edinburgh as well as the Fife Circle line, with journey times of about 20 minutes to Haymarket. Edinburgh International Airport is around 14.5 miles away and the central belt motorway network is within easy reach. There is a bus stop a short distance away with regular services into Edinburgh.
Dalgety Bay offers a wide range of services and amenities, including two primary schools, supermarkets, restaurants with home delivery options, pubs, coffee shops, horse riding and a sailing club within easy reach. Nearby Dunfermline provides a wider range of retail, business and leisure facilities. The private schools of Stewart's Melville College and Mary Erskine in Edinburgh and Dollar Academy operate their own bus services from Dalgety Bay.
The Fife Coastal Path, accessed from the garden of the property, is ideal for walkers, runners and cyclists, and passes by both the historic ruins of St Bridget's Kirk and the Donibristle Stables.
What may appear to be a subtle streetside appearance belies a fantastic contemporary and light filled property overlooking a generous garden and superb coastal views towards the iconic Forth bridges.
Paved parking at the front leads to the covered porch with charging point for electric vehicles, and the front door, flanked by full length panels of glass each side creating a light entrance hall inside. From the hall, the spacious modern kitchen is accessed with pantry cupboard, and office nook. A large island with seating integrates the induction hob and excellent storage. Other integrated appliances include a wine cooler, steam oven, microwave and coffee machine. A recent extension has created a bright sun lounge with dining area, with skylight and walls of windows overlooking patio and garden which can be accessed by two sets of patio doors. A double bedroom and bathroom are located to the rear of the kitchen adjacent to the stairs leading up to the first floor.
A rear hallway leads off from the main entrance, passing a cloakroom, utility room and further bedroom and rear door access outside. The large sitting room is a wonderfully light space with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the patio, garden and the Firth of Forth.
On the first floor, a family bathroom and bedroom are located at the top of the staircase, while the hall leads to an open family room with terraced balcony providing stunning views and a place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The hall continues on, providing access to a fourth bedroom and then on to the master suite at the end of the hall. The jojoba wood flooring provides a striking feature to the spacious room, with floor to ceiling windows looking south towards the water. An en suite shower room and walk in dressing room complete the suite.
Outside, a double garage with workshop can be accessed from the street and also from the paved patio that wraps around the south of the property leading to a BBQ area. A substantial summerhouse is located next to the garage and offers secondary accommodation in its chalet style wood cladded interior, with kitchen, shower room, studio and mezzanine level. Landscaped herbaceous borders and flowerbeds neatly surround the lawned areas. Steps surrounded by an oasis of mature trees and features such as three waterfall ponds, lead down the incline towards the private access gate to the Fife Coastal Path and the Firth of Forth.
