An outstanding country house built in 1998, set in stunning landscaped gardens.
Pirwindy Keep is a superb country house designed in the style of a traditional fortified keep, and constructed to a very high standard in 1998. The abundance of character such as the stone façade, combined with the characteristics of a modern construction type, create what is a truly remarkable and unique family home. The house was built with natural stone to the exterior with a concrete block membrane and inner timber frame. The accommodation is well-proportioned and presented to a high standard throughout. The principal rooms offer great flexibility, and the upper levels in particular have spectacular views over the gardens, neighbouring Fife farmland and the rolling hills beyond.
The entrance hall has stone flooring, and both a cloakroom and WC situated off. Stone steps lead up to the spacious kitchen / dining room. A four oven cream AGA is set within an inset to the exposed stone wall, and provides great character, typical to that of a traditional Scottish country home. There are two Belfast sinks set into counters, and plumbing installed for a dishwasher. A door leads out onto the west and south facing terrace. A separate door leads to the staircase to the upper floors. The sitting room and family room are separated by bi-folding doors and provide a large open entertaining space if required. The sitting room has a fireplace and windows facing south and east. The larger family room is also a home cinema, being fitted with an Optoma projector and screen. It has doors out to the side of the house, and a staircase up to the first floor bedrooms. A corridor leads down to the ground floor bedroom and a bathroom. The bathroom was recently upgraded and has a Victory Jacuzzi bath, and separate shower cubicle. A utility room sits off the corridor and is plumbed for appliances, and has a separate cupboard housing the hot water cylinder and oil fired boiler.
Two staircases, one from the corridor off the kitchen and the other from the family room, lead up to the first floor. The drawing room is situated in the keep and is a remarkable living space. With windows on all four aspects, the views are outstanding. Set into the exposed stone wall is a large open fireplace, with decorative timber panelling above. A connecting hall with three Velux windows could be used as a study area, and this leads to the bedroom corridor. Off here are four double bedrooms, and a bathroom fitted with a freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle. Stairs from the corridor lead down to the family room. The principal bedroom suite on the top floor of the keep has panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. The suite includes two separate dressing rooms, a freestanding bath, and an en suite WC. There is also a dedicated sitting area from where the glorious views can be enjoyed.

Pirwindy Keep is a country house of outstanding quality. The house is set in a picturesque haven of gardens and grounds with the Keils Burn running through them. Its close proximity to the East Neuk coastline and St Andrews is also hugely appealing.Harry MaitlandProperty agent
