Contemporary eco-home set in Dunfermline Conservation Area with exceptional views to Forth bridges and Pentland Hills
Turaideach is a contemporary family home which belies its town centre setting. Built by the current owners and completed in 2015, its eco status and low-carbon footprint are exceptional. It is a warm and draught free property which is inexpensive to heat and ideal for family life. The underfloor heating throughout provides a warm and comfortable feel and allows more flexibility for furniture as there are no radiators to contend with. Furthermore, the heat-recovery system recovers heat that would normally be lost and provides ventilation for a fresher and more hypoallergenic home.
The accommodation has excellent flow and is laid out to be open and airy, yet it is also superbly versatile as the rooms can be closed off to create a cosier atmosphere when required. The kitchen is essentially open plan with a comfortable sitting room divided from the main kitchen by a feature stone wall. The large central island makes the kitchen a wonderful entertaining room in addition to the drawing and dining rooms which interlink with double doors and onto the terrace though concertina doors where the large decked terrace is perfect for al fresco dining. There are French doors from the kitchen to the garden as well as a back door which provides an informal entrance via the utility room.
On the first floor the master bedroom is spacious and well planned with both en suite bathroom and a fitted dressing room. There are three further bedroom on this floor two of which have en suite shower rooms and the third has a fitted wardrobe. There is also a family bathroom. The second floor has a fifth bedroom which is currently used as a gym and there is an additional shower room at this level. On the opposite side of the landing lies the family room which has a seating area in the turret with the most spectacular views over the town to the Forth bridges towards Edinburgh and the Pentland Hills. An office occupies the peace of the attic room beyond.
