Bywater Cottage sits in a picturesque setting overlooking the spectacular wildlife haven of Kilconquhar Loch. The charming, partially terraced house has well-presented accommodation split over two floors with the ground floor offering fantastic, flexible and open-plan living space. The south facing views from the house over the loch fronted garden and beyond are breathtaking.

The front of the house is steeped in traditional character with the original stone façade and pantile roof. The front door leads into the entrance hall. Here there is a generous under stair cloak cupboard. There is also a bathroom with feature exposed stone wall, and a bath with overhead shower.

Beyond the entrance hall are the main living areas. The kitchen / family room is fitted with a range of units with a breakfast bar incorporated. Integrated appliances include a Hoover fridge freezer, Hotpoint washing machine, Lamona oven and gas hob. The cosy and atmospheric seating area has a natural stone fireplace surround with wooden mantel. There is an open chimney and gas point connection, making flexible use for choice of log burning stove or gas fire. Glass double doors open up from the kitchen / family room into the south facing dining room. This has previously been used as a ground floor bedroom and could be a home office if required. The spectacular loch facing sitting room is approached by a couple of steps leading down from the kitchen / family room. It is filled with an abundance of natural light with a south facing aspect, and has two sets of sliding patio doors leading out into the garden beyond.

A staircase from the entrance hall leads up to the first floor. The principal bedroom sits at the end of the corridor and has wonderful views of the loch through glazed double doors that open onto a Juliet balcony. This special room has an en suite bathroom and a fitted wardrobe. The second bedroom also has views of the loch through a dormer window, an en suite WC, and eaves storage cupboards. The third bedroom has fitted wardrobes and under eaves storage.

The south facing garden at Bywater Cottage is a stunning and tranquil haven from which the vast array of wildlife that inhabit and visit the beautiful Kilconquhar Loch can be admired. The enclosed garden is principally lawned with well-stocked borders flanked by beech hedges, and interspersed trees including an attractive mature silver birch. The garden runs all the way from the south facing patio down to the loch front where there is a paved terrace with a stone slipway into the loch which has been used in the past for mooring a small boat. To the side of the house is a shed split into two store rooms, ideal for storing bicycles and outside furniture. There is a children's playhouse halfway down the garden. A lane passes the west gable of the house giving access directly from the front of the house to the garden. There is an area to the front of the house which may be suitable for private parking.
