Quietly positioned in the hamlet of Woodside, in the beautiful Fife countryside to the north of Largo Law, Eden enjoys a delightful yet highly accessible semi-rural setting. Local services are available in Leven and Lower Largo with a wider offering on hand a short distance to the north in Fife's bustling former county market town of Cupar. A short distance to the north-east lies St. Andrews, the ancient and historic university town renowned world-wide as the Home of Golf with its excellent mix of shops, services, facilities and amenities. The city of Dundee is within commuting distance and Edinburgh is no more than a one hour drive to the south. The area around Woodside comprises a mix of farmland, coastline, hill and river, the result being a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, riding, cycling, sailing and of course golf all readily available. There are many highly regarded courses in the area including Ladybank, Elie, Leven, Dumbarnie, Crail and Lundin Links, as well as the many fine courses in and around St. Andrews where The Old Course is regular host to the British Open – next due to visit the town for its 150th anniversary in 2022. The wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills offer considerable scope whilst in terms of days out there are lovely sandy beaches at St. Andrews, Elie and Tentsmuir. The pretty fishing villages of Fife's East Neuk are just a short drive and include Anstruther, Crail and Pittenweem. There are a number of popular National Trust properties in the area including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. State schooling is available locally with well-regarded independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Cupar, Leuchars, Ladybank, Markinch and Kirkcaldy with Edinburgh airport about a forty five minute drive to the south.


General Description

Eden is an exceptional property with a wonderful southerly aspect and fine panoramic views. With its striking façade and outstanding green credentials, the spectacular contemporary accommodation is essentially centred around the magnificent galleried central atrium with cathedral ceiling and substantial wood-burner, and extends to approximately 430 square meters. The ground floor accommodation benefits from under floor heating and comprises exceptional open-plan sitting room/dining room/hall to the front of the house with kitchen/family/garden room to the rear, with the garden room also doubling as a cinema room and with bi-folding doors on three sides. The wonderful principal bedroom is also found at ground floor level and benefits from a stunning en-suite wet room and walk-in dressing room. The home office, utility room, cloakroom and vestibule complete the accommodation at this level. Upstairs via the bespoke glass staircase, the superb galleried landing area opens to gym/library area with a balcony off to the front of the house which has sensational views over the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh and beyond. All four bedrooms at first floor level also benefit from their own balconies with the two bedrooms to the front of the house also enjoying en-suite facilities. The family bathroom to the rear is spectacular having been being carefully designed to make the most of the distant views to the Grampian Mountains to the north. Bold, magnificent and quite unique, Eden enjoys many notable features such as underfloor heating to the ground floor and upstairs bathrooms, state of the art wiring and networking, mood lighting both inside and out, high-quality sanitary ware and a superb German kitchen.
