A CHARMING family home bursting with character can be found minutes from the seafront, in Fairy Road, Seaview.
Five-bedroom Kippen has an abundance of versatile space, which can be used to suit the requirements of many different buyers.
The detached house was originally extended to create a self-contained two-bedroom annexe with its own front door for an elderly relative. It was later used by the family as a holiday let.
The annexe has now been integrated into the main house, although the option remains to reinstate it for either of the previous uses.
A wonderful family kitchen remains the heart of the home. Gorgeous wooden flooring complements the modern kitchen units and worktops, while two double-glazed windows overlook the large south-facing garden.
Within the main part of the home, buyers will appreciate the neutral decor and original picture rails.
Downstairs, an entrance hallway leads to a charming lounge, enhanced by a beautiful bay window, which can also be found in the above bedroom.
There is a downstairs toilet and a small storage cupboard.
Through the dining room is a fantastic, double-glazed conservatory.
Outside, care has clearly been given to the garden — an oasis of plants, complemented by a beautiful patio area and plenty of lawn. There is also a shed with power and lighting.
At the end of the garden stands a fine oak tree, planted from a single acorn.
Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms as well as one single, which could easily be used as a study. Two bedrooms have built-in cupboards. There are two bathrooms, both with a shower over the bath.
If the purchaser prefers, the hallway could be closed off, to re-establish the use of the annexe as a self-contained unit.
The downstairs reception room, in the former annexe, is also a versatile space offering a number of uses.
The windows at the front of the house are secondary glazed.
There are also two loft spaces in the property, with pull-down ladder access to both. There is scope to turn this area into a further room, offering fantastic views to the sea.
The current owners have shared many a happy memory at Kippen but feel it’s now time to downsize.
