About this property

  • Edenside House sits just outside St Andrews and can be traced back to the 1790s when it was originally a farmhouse for farmworkers with the adjoining byre used to store shellfish from the estuary. The byre, which was restored and converted into a six bedroom annexe to the side of the main house in the late 1980s, accommodates six double sized rooms all with en suite shower rooms and external entrances.

    The main house entrance opens into a spacious and bright sitting room, with a large dining room off to the right and utility room in the far left corner. The large kitchen which has been newly upgraded is fitted with a range of base and wall units, a Rangemaster six ring hob and double oven and integrated dishwasher. The room off the kitchen is currently used as a family room. On the first floor there are a further four bedrooms all with en suite shower rooms. There are two deep cupboards that provide superb storage. Outside there is a large garden which borders the Eden Estuary, as well as a large parking area at the front of the property.
