About this property

  • Westhall is a beautiful, traditional family house situated in an elevated position overlooking Lundin Links Golf Course, and across the Firth of Forth towards East Lothian and Edinburgh. The house is thought to date back to the 1890s, and still retains an abundance of characterful features throughout. The extensive accommodation is set across two floors and offers the opportunity for modernisation. There is a self-contained ground floor apartment, extensive loft space, and an excellent range of outhouses to the rear.

    The principal ground floor rooms sit off the entrance hall. The south-facing dining room in particular is a stunning room with a large bay window offering coastal views. Other features include ornate cornicing, original timber flooring and a fireplace with marble surround and decorative mantlepiece. The family room and a ground floor bedroom also sit south facing off the hall, and there is a cloakroom with stained glass window which opens into a bathroom with shower. Steps from the end of the entrance hall lead down into the kitchen. A utility room, and the south-facing sun room sit beyond, the latter with beautiful views and double doors opening into the garden.

    A staircase leads up from the entrance hall, and off a halfway landing there is a shower room and a separate WC. All the rooms on the first floor are set off the central landing. The drawing room mirrors the dining room below with its large bay window with fitted window seats, along with ornate cornicing, fireplace, and views over the golf course and the Firth of Forth beyond. The principal bedroom has a corner window looking east along the coastline, an en suite bathroom, and a dressing room which can also be accessed from the landing. There are three further bedrooms. The loft floor above is accessed by a ladder from the landing. There are five separate loft rooms, under-eaves storage and access up to the rooftop.

    There is a self-contained ground floor flat which can be accessed by its own external door to the rear of the house, or internally off the entrance hall. It has a kitchenette, sitting room, bedroom and shower room.

    Westhall sits in about 0.45 acres of gardens which are walled on three aspects, with a mature beech hedge to the south. The house is approached by a gated monobloc drive to the rear leading off Links Road. The double garage is also accessed from Links Road. Outhouses include a greenhouse, garden store, gardener's WC, potting shed and stores. A pedestrian gate from Links Road leads to a paved path which passes alongside the rear and side gardens and up to the house's main door. The south-facing front garden is terraced on three levels with a gate leading on to the Fife Coastal Path. The nearby golf course and beach are within close proximity from this path. Overlooking the garden is a brick laid patio and gravelled seating area with patio doors leading into the house.
