ANYONE interested in owning an Edwardian Arts and Crafts-style home in Dunfermline - with a coach house and stunning gardens - has to cough up more than three quarters of a million.

The six-bedroom Southwell home is tucked away off Woodmill Road with landscaped gardens on the outside and a preserved rich history within.

It is now on the market for offers over £750,000 via Savills - Edinburgh Country Houses, and it will no doubt attract attention from admirers and potential new owners.

Entrance is via a glazed porch and the grand hallway offers an abundance of character, with original timber panelling and an elegant open staircase with timber balustrade and scalloped curved handrail. A stained glass window over it floods the entrance hall below.

The three principal reception rooms all sit off the entrance hall.

The sitting room overlooks the front of the house and has a Firefox log burner set into an arched recess with carved mantel and flanking columns. The dining room is also front facing, with windows on two aspects, and like the drawing room, has views over the roof tops of Dunfermline to the countryside beyond.

Character features include an arched buffet recess, a press and decorative cornicing. There is a gas fireplace and door leading to the adjacent butler's pantry, giving easy access to the kitchen.

The family room overlooks the south gardens and also has a gas fireplace with carved wooden mantel.

Southwood's kitchen has double doors that open up into the garden. It has fitted appliances including a gas Rangemaster with two ovens and a six burner gas hob, a Rangemaster fridge freezer, and a Whirlpool dishwasher.

A door conceals the back staircase, and a further door leads into the utility room. This has a pantry cupboard, store room and boiler room, as well as a door to the rear of the house. The ground floor has two WCs, one off the entrance hall and the other off the utility room.

The first floor has four double bedrooms set off the main landing, all with character features such as attractive fireplaces with fixed mirrors above and tiled surrounds.

Three of the bedrooms have stunning west-facing views over the roof tops and beyond, thanks to the house's elevated setting. The fourth bedroom faces south, also with lovely views.

The principal suite has an en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle. There are two large cupboards off the landing.

A mezzanine level split in the main staircase leads to the south facing guest bedroom. Beyond this is a study, which could be a further bedroom, with two generous cupboards, and the back stairs leading down to the kitchen.

Externally, the tarmac driveway passes through stone pillars with gates and continues alongside the beautiful garden, past the back door and around to the front of the house, where there is a generous gravelled parking area. There is also a useful parking area at the back door.

The grounds at Southwood extend to about 0.6 acres in all.

The coach house sits at the foot of the garden, off the end of the driveway. It has an attractive appearance, with a high pitched roof and two sliding wooden doors on a roller. Subject to the necessary consents, there could be potential for conversion into separate accommodation or a home office.
