Marine Villa occupies a prominent position on the beach in Lower Largo. The garden boundary wall adjoins the beach and the house enjoys panoramic views across the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh and the East Lothian Coastline. Lower Largo is situated on Largo Bay and is an ancient fishing village abutting the neighbouring village of Lundin Links. The village is divided into two parts, namely Upper Largo
and Lower Largo and is well known for its wide variety of charming cottages, houses, pretty harbour and beach. Alexander Selkirk, a Largo native and Scottish sailor, who spent a number of years as a castaway on an uninhabited island, is said to have inspired Daniel Defoe’s fictional
character, Robinson Crusoe. A life size statue of Selkirk stands outside his birth place at 99-105 Main Street.The village has a general store and the recently refurbished Crusoe Hotel with further services in Lundin Links including Butcher, Bakery and General Store as well as an 18 Hole Links Course and Ladies 9 Hole Course. The latter is the oldest Ladies Golf Course in the world and the former has been used as an Open Qualifying Course when the Open Championship is held at St Andrews. Lundin Links, Upper and Lower Largo comprise the starting point of the well known East Neuk of Fife with its many pretty coastal villages, golf courses, scenic walks, including the Fife Coastal Path, and historic and cultural attractions. The area has been popular with holiday makers and second home owners for many years and yet remains within an hours drive of central Edinburgh and the remainder of central Scotland easily accessible via the motorway network. The principal Fife towns of Glenrothes and Kirkcaldy are within easy reach as is Scotland’s fourth city, Dundee, to the north. St Andrews with its many cultural and golfing attractions is within 20 to 25 minutes’ drive. The acclaimed new Dumbarnie Golf Course is a short distance to the east. There are rail links at Kirkcaldy as well as an airfield for light aircraft at Glenrothes.
Believed to date from circa 1850, and split in the 1970s, Marine Villa is a handsome stone house under a slate roof, with porch and terrace to the front, and extension to the side. The Lower Flat offers comfortable and deceptively spacious very well-presented family accommodation over one level with a fabulous open plan main sitting room / dining room / kitchen with glazed doors out to the terrace. The generous main bedroom is to the front with 2 further bedrooms, family bathroom, utility room, hall and vestibule completing the accommodation. The property benefits from mains gas central heating and is beautifully presented throughout. Viewing is highly recommended. Rarely, the Upper Flat at Marine Villa is also being offered for sale, separately but simultaneously, presenting scope to revert Marine Villa to a single house subject to planning etc.
The magnificent terrace to the front of Marine Villa enjoys the most outstanding coastal vistas and goes with the Lower Flat, along with an area of garden ground to the side and driveway parking to the rear.
There is access across the front garden to beach via the private front gate.
There is a garden store and a summer house.
