Sat on the edge of the country park in Markinch from which it takes its name, Balbirnie South Lodge is a handsome building.
The B listed gate lodge was designed by David Bryce, the Edinburgh architect whose buildings include Fettes College, the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh, and the Bank of Scotland buildings.
Balbirnie Lodge sits on the outskirts of Markinch. It’s been extended sympathetically from its original design and now has four bedrooms, two of which are en suite.
The large lounge has an open fire and French doors to the landscaped back garden. A spiral staircase in this room goes up to one of the two attic bedrooms.
There is an open plan family/dining room with another open fire that also has a spiral staircase – this one made of stone – leading to the second attic bedroom, which has its own dressing room.
The kitchen has a Belfast sink and door to the garden.
To the front is a monobloc drive with plenty of off street parking and a double garage with attic storage and connecting doors to the garden and the lounge.
Large and landscaped, the gardens are a particularly pleasing part of the overall package. There’s also a summer house with decking that is being included in the sale.
Windows are double glazed and there is gas central heating.
Balbirnie South Lodge is being sold by Slater Hogg & Howison for offers over£350,000.
