General Description

Corner Croft, originally comprising three separate dwellings built in the 1800s, has undergone tasteful renovation over the years. Once home to the village sweet shop, it has been transformed into a charming and characterful three-bedroom residence. Nestled amidst beautiful south and west-facing gardens and enjoying a delightful village setting in Kilconquhar, it offers comfortable, light-filled, and spacious accommodation.

From its captivating, white-painted stone façade and pantile-covered roof, the welcoming hallway leads you into a light-filled and generous dual-aspect sitting room. With elegant French doors opening out to the south and west-facing garden and featuring original casement windows, it is a most inviting space for friends and family alike. The focal point is an expansive stone hearth with an open fireplace, and this serves as a pleasing backdrop to the soft colour palette and plush carpeting.  Returning to the hallway you pass a useful ground-floor WC before coming to the south-facing breakfasting kitchen with garden access. Though a cosmetic upgrade may enhance its appeal, it features ample wall and floor units, worktop space and integrated appliances including an eye-level oven, hob, and extractor hood. Adjacent is a versatile dining room enhanced by handsome polished mahogany flooring and a warm interior design. As with the other living and reception areas, it enjoys an abundance of natural light. This floor also hosts the light and airy carpeted principal double bedroom. With direct garden access through French doors, it features built-in wardrobes and vanity, and a private shower. Ascending the carpeted staircase with rope handrail, you arrive at two generously proportioned and bright double bedrooms overlooking the front and rear of the property respectively. These share a family bathroom with a bath, WC, and washbasin. Warm and comfortable throughout, the property benefits from oil heating with a gas supply to the house.

The large enclosed rear garden is a delight which offers a serene and picturesque retreat, perfect for relaxation and entertaining. 
Meticulously designed an expansive manicured lawn overlooks an alfresco dining area and is bordered by established hedging and exquisite topiary. 
A detached timber garage and shed offer options for storage and gated parking accommodates up to four vehicles. The space could allow for the construction of a summer house,  garden room or granny flat.
