The Easter Bedroom ensuite has a bath with an overhead shower and is nicknamed the “loo with the view”. Adjacent to the Blue Bedroom is a large shower room and next to the three twin bedrooms is a generous family bathroom with a bath and walk in shower. The large kitchen is perfect for entertaining and catering for a full house. There is a five ring gas hob, double wall mounted electric oven, two dishwashers, a large fitted fridge with an additional fridge freezer and chest freezer in the adjoining pantry. There is also a Nespresso coffee machine, large slow cooker, microwave, nutribullet, food blender and sandwich maker. The kitchen has a large quartz topped kitchen island with three stools and a unique pine dining table that was custom made for the house. It comfortably seats 12 and is adjacent to a wonderful log burning stove and large sash windows with splendid views of the Loch. There are also extra chairs and a table extension so more can be seated if required. The sitting room is a beautiful tranquil space with two large comfy sofas, a soft ottoman, antique furniture and a large log burning stove. There are two sash windows, one overlooking the garden and the other looks out to the Loch. Adjacent to the sitting room is a private study with a large Victorian desk. There’s free wifi throughout the house. At the back of the house is a large TV and play room with a 50' wall mounted screen, DVD player and Wii. There are also plenty of board games and a collection of toys. There is a bootroom at the back with ample space for all outdoor gear, coats, golf clubs, pushchairs, dog baskets and the like! There is also a separate laundry with a large washing machine, tumble drier, steam or regular iron and ironing board and plenty of hanging space. The large garden is a lovely space to enjoy and relax in. There’s a bbq and outside seating and even an Inground trampoline and rope swing for the kids. There’s a large garage that has been converted into an outside covered games room too with table tennis, table footy and an old piano in it too! So even if it’s wet, you can have fun outside. Options for catering, housekeeping, babysitting and dog sitting are available on request. More

We had a brilliant stay - a group of 14 up for a golfing trip. We took advantage of local fishing and loved the property, within a short walk for pubs. Would recommend the private chef option! Worth every penny.More

About the neighbourhood
Easter Balgedie is a small rural hamlet made up of just a few houses and a couple of farms. There are little lanes to stroll along and a farm track that leads up to the Lomond Hills at the back and another that takes you to Loch Leven at the front. Although in a rural, tranquil setting, Balgedie House is a perfect base from which to explore the heart of Scotland. There's the Fife villages & beaches & Edinburgh, Perth, St Andrews & Stirling are all close by. Golfers have many top courses to choose from, walkers & cyclists & outdoor sports are well catered for, & there are many arts, culture & historical activities too. Despite all the area has to offer, you may wish to simply enjoy the House, garden & its views & not go anywhere at all!
