PROPERTY: Stunning former byre near East Neuk has exposed stone walls and countryside views
The Byre at Wester Durie Steading is a beautiful building in a style typical of Fife’s agricultural heritage.
The four bedroom house was converted from a former stable in 2003 and is located in the countryside. There is a small cluster of similar properties nearby.
The hotel is on a dirt road off the back road between Leven and Kennoway, a short drive from the beautiful East Neuk coast and close to Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy, Edinburgh, Dundee and Perth.
Exposed stone walls and a pan roof give it an unmistakable appearance. Wrought iron gates open to a monoblock driveway and free-standing garage. From here a stone path leads up a few steps to the house.
The show stopper is the semi-open living and dining area, which is divided by a gigantic exposed stone fireplace with a wood stove.
Off the living room is a charming conservatory with great views over the Fife countryside. The modern kitchen has a spacious utility room to one side and the master bedroom is at the other end of the main floor of the house and has its own bathroom.
On the upper level there are two more spacious bedrooms, one with its own large dressing room, and a study large enough to be used as a fourth bedroom. There is a total of almost 220 square meters of living space.
The large garage contains a workshop area and offers plenty of storage space. There is oil central heating, double glazing and solar panels that produce hot water.
The garden has a large section of lawn, nicely manicured edges, parking and laundry drying areas, and a wood shop.
If you feel like living in the Byre, you’d better put on your ice skates. Sellers have been inundated with inquiries since the home went on sale last week and a closing date was set for this Thursday.
The Byre, Wester Durie Steading, Fife is on sale with Galbraith for deals over £ 340,000.
