Characterful house with historic folly in spectacular harbourside position
Steeped in rich history dating back to the 16th century, Dreel Lodge now offers comfortable and spacious accommodation split over two floors with outstanding sea views. Situated on the edge of the estuary of Dreel Burn, the property has panoramic waterfront views towards the working harbour and the Firth of Forth. The property sits on the site of the original Dreel Castle and includes the remains of the folly.
Enclosed within Listed stone walls, the property opens up on to a private courtyard which provides ample parking space. Steps lead up to the front door and through to the entrance hall. To the left is the kitchen with dining area and access to a useful utility room. The kitchen provides superb views over the estuary to the sea wall and Firth of Forth beyond. Base units include integrated appliances including oven, hob, dishwasher and fridge. A cloakroom is adjacent and accessed from the hall.
Also accessed from the hall are the dual aspect family room providing views south to the water and west to the village of Anstruther, and a spacious sitting room with open fireplace and triple aspect views. Patio doors lead out to the garden, and stairs lead up to the first floor.
Three bedrooms are located on the first floor, one with an en suite bathroom, and a shower room serves the remaining bedrooms. All bedrooms offer fantastic built in storage and sea views.
Outside, a garden storeroom faces onto the private courtyard and sits under the ruins of a folly. A garden extends to the rear of the property and is enclosed within stone walls. A gravel path leads to the remains of the folly and a paved area in front with garden shed. There are mature trees and landscaped flower beds. A stone wall provides a boundary between the property and estuary below.
