About this property


    Centrally located on Bank Street, Overton's front door opens into a vestibule and then a tiled inner hall with convenient racking for golf clubs. Stairs lead up to the first floor landing, with a mezzanine level providing storage cupboards and access to steps outside leading down into the garden.

    On the first floor, with south facing views over the Elie roof tops towards the harbour and across the Firth of Forth, is a spacious and bright sitting room with a bay window making the most of the sea views. Next to this is a double bedroom which could be a further reception room if required, and a bathroom which has been recently upgraded. To the rear of the property is the open-plan kitchen / dining room. The kitchen has excellent storage with two cupboards, base and wall units and a range of integrated appliances. The kitchen opens up into the dining room which has a fireplace and views over the garden to the north.

    On the second floor, there are four light and spacious bedrooms and a shower room which has also been recently upgraded by the current owners. Each bedroom has fantastic views either south to the coast or north to the golf course and hills beyond, framed by large dormer windows. There are fitted wardrobes in two of the bedrooms.

    Outside, Overton has a generous garden which can be accessed from steps down from the house, and also via Baker's Close, a shared gated pend from the street, so that bikes, golf clubs and surf boards can be easily stowed away in the outbuildings. A further substantial store room provides ample storage for garden equipment. The garden stretches north with landscaped borders around the edge as well as a few mature trees. A paved garden path winds down the length of the garden to the end where a sectioned off area provides further privacy. The garden is well positioned so that it gets the best of the sunshine throughout the day.
