Characterful terraced cottage in the heart of the historic village of Falkland
Young's House is a classically charming B Listed end of terrace house. Originally known as Bayne's House, the property dates from about 1776. It is set back from the pavement on West Port with a small front garden. It was substantially renovated in 2009 with holiday letting in mind and further works were undertaken in 2012 when it became the current owner's full time residence.
The welcoming front entrance opens into the spacious sitting room which has an open fire place. The under stair cupboard has been converted to a small cloakroom with WC. The kitchen is fully fitted to include superb storage and a range of appliances. On the first floor there are two good sized bedrooms. The principal bedroom has ample space to create an en suite. The second floor has a splendid bathroom which is flooded with natural light. In addition to the double size bath there is a separate shower and wash basin pedestal with twin sinks. There is a linen cupboard which also houses the large hot water tank and boiler.
Outside there is a terrace to the rear of the house and from here steps rise up to the walled garden which has some mature trees and is lawned. There is a shed at the top of the garden where a gate opens to the path shared with Pitcairn House providing easy access from the garden to the street.
