Sorgenfri, Links Road, Leven, Fife

4 3 1 Detached House

Property Summary

This stunning stonebuilt detached Victorian villa enjoys a superb location in Links Road, arguably the most desirable street in Leven. It is within moments of the beach and Golf Course and close to almost all other amenities. There are lovely views from the rear over nearby buildings to the sea and from the front along Links Road which has a wide grassy central reservation planted with lovely mature trees. The house is presented in truly immaculate decorative order and benefits from gas fired central heating and sealed unit double glazing. Over the years the house has been sympathetically modernized to form a wonderful family home, yet all the charm and character has been carefully retained. It boasts a host of charming period features including ornate plaster cornice work, a lovely decorative frieze and ceiling rose in the lounge, fireplaces in several rooms, original stripped pine doors etc, and a lovely staircase with turned wood bannisters. The property is currently used to provide 4 bedrooms and 3 public rooms, but 2 of the public rooms would make ideal bedrooms if required.  There are gardens to front and rear and a long drive leads to the garage. This drive provides off street parking for four cars. (Sorgenfri is a Danish place name meaning ‘Free of Sorrow’)
