Outstanding contemporary home set in beautiful parkland close to Elie
Elie House Orangery consists of three sandstone built homes adjacent to Elie House on the site of a former chapel. The homes, which were completed in 2012, were built to the highest standard of specification, mixing classical style architecture with the best of understated contemporary design and technology. Large windows set between natural stone pillars allow a huge amount of natural light to stream into the house. 2 The Orangery has two dedicated parking spaces and additional visitors parking, a private garden to both front and rear and access to beautiful parkland which is home to an abundance of wildlife. The property offers private, countryside living, only 0.7 miles from the beach and The Ship Inn of Elie.
A paved path leads up to the front door of 2 The Orangery where glazed double doors lead into the tiled vestibule. The central hallway has beautiful engineered and lacquered oak flooring, a feature throughout much of the ground floor and landing, and the kitchen opens up to the left. The bespoke kitchen has a range of Kitchens International Callerton painted base and wall units with integrated appliances and black granite work tops. Siemens appliances include a built in microwave, oven, fridge/ freezer, dishwasher and five burner gas hob with an extractor fan set in a mantel above. The dining area is open plan to the kitchen and sitting room, and has windows looking over the rear garden and parkland beyond. French doors from the rear garden open into the sitting room and a corridor loops back round to the central hall. The sitting room has a stainless steel gas stove with tiled surround and LED lighting, and a feature wall with space for a flat screen television. Off the sitting room are two storage cupboards, one of which houses the electronics for the house. It should be noted that the property benefits from Cat5 wiring and one could easily install audio throughout the house from this central location. The bedroom on the ground floor has a door to the guest shower room which can also be accessed from the hallway.
An oak staircase with glass panels rises up to the galleried landing, where there is a large family / study area with built in oak book shelving. A wall could be erected here to create a fifth bedroom, if desired, and accordingly the radiator and electrics have been designed to facilitate a simple conversion. The master bedroom has a wonderful outlook through two sets of full height windows to the west. There is a feature wall with inset lighting and a dressing area with built in wardrobes behind. The en suite bathroom has been tiled with natural stone effect porcelain tiles and fitted with quality Laufen sanitaryware and Hansgrohe shower fittings. The family bathroom and downstairs shower room have also been fitted to the same high standard. There are two further double bedrooms on this level and a boiler cupboard. The bedrooms throughout the house have been fitted with black out blinds. An access hatch with fitted ladder gives access to a full length boarded storage space in the attic.
The Orangery has an area of lawn to the front of the house where the morning sun can be enjoyed. To the rear is a paved patio with lawn beyond which captures the evening sun and provides an excellent area for barbequing and outdoor eating and entertaining. The Orangery is accessed by a tree lined drive from the village and enjoys almost 10 acres of shared gardens, extensive lawns and planted borders and parkland with majestic mature trees.
