Burntisland is a substantial Edwardian property retaining original features throughout. The house is of red brick elevations with rendering to the first floor under a slate tiled roof.
The entrance porch leads to the front door which opens into the spectacular hallway, with original black and white tiling, off which the principal reception rooms are located. Immediately to the left is the sitting room with bay window to the front and cast iron fireplace with wooden mantel and built-in shelving either side. The superb double aspect drawing room has a magnificent marble fireplace and doors leading out to the garden. There is a good sized study with built-in shelving. The dining room is a super room with wooden floorboards and views to the garden. A door from the hall opens to the conservatory which has doors to the garden; access to the cellar is also from the hall.
The double aspect kitchen/breakfast room has a lovely outlook to the garden. It is fitted with a range of wooden cupboards with wood work surfaces over, a double sink, and ample space for a large range cooker and further white goods. A door from the kitchen leads to the utility room, which has further store cupboards with work surfaces over and a sink. Steps lead down to a rear lobby with a door to the garden and access to a good sized boot room and cloakroom. Further steps descend to the annexe with living area, kitchenette, shower and WC. Doors from here lead to the rear garden and the front driveway.
The elegant original staircase rises to the spacious first floor landing, which is wonderfully light due to a large window with stained glass pattern. The master bedroom is a bright double room with wooden floorboards and large bay window; it benefits from an en-suite shower room and a generous walk-in dressing room. There is an airing cupboard to one corner. Bedroom 2 is an excellent sized room with lovely views to the rear garden, with further built-in store cupboard and benefitting from an en-suite shower room. Bedroom 3 is double aspect with two built-in store cupboards. Bedroom 4 is a further double room with views to the side and rear. Bedroom 5 is a single bedroom again with built-in store cupboard. The accommodation is completed by the family bathroom.
The gravelled driveway to the house provides masses of off-street parking. Double wooden gates lead to the rear where a further area of gravel and a large paved terraced provide an excellent space for outdoor entertaining and al-fresco dining. Adjacent to the terrace is a timber-framed building, open to one side, and currently used as a games area. To one side is a good sized work shed/store.
The top of the garden is dominated by a mature sweet chestnut tree and has a further gravelled area. This leads to a space that is largely laid to lawn bordered on either side by mature trees, shrubs and plants. The garden is divided by a pretty red brick wall with a gate to either side giving access to the orchard, quintessentially English and filled with an enormous variety of apple trees; the orchard is surrounded on all sides by mature trees giving superb levels of privacy.
