When the sky is blue and the rapeseed is in all its vibrant, yellow glory, there are few sights to match the view from the upper floor of this spacious family home.
But the stunning, open prospect across fields is not the only thing that Jonathan and Helen Baker will miss when they leave their modern villa in the historic village of Kincardine.
“The thing about this house is the amazing amount of space if offers,” says Jonathan.
From the garage conversion which has created an extra room, to the generous-sized conservatory, to the four double-sized bedrooms, there is certainly no shortage of space for a growing family.
At the moment, the family use the room created by the conversion as an extra sitting room for Helen’s mum, who lives with them, but it would equally make a play room, study or even a fifth bedroom, says Jonathan.
“I really like the flexibility this house offers,” he explained. “Downstairs there are double doors linking the front room and the dining room and also the conservatory and these can be opened up which creates an open plan feel.”
The large conservatory has been commandeered by their three young children as a toy room, but it offers a pleasant area to relax or as an extra social space for parties to spill out into, and French doors open out onto the decking.
“It’s a great house for socialising,” said Jonathan. “Because it is so spacious, it never feels that people are cramped together.”
The modern fitted kitchen leads to a large utility room with ample space for appliances such as an American fridge freezer and a range of white goods.
Upstairs, the space theme continues. There is one room – above the garage conversion – which runs the full length of the house, with two velux windows at the front that open on to that spectacular view and the sight of buzzards gliding past.
“The family in the house before us built it as their son’s room, so he had a bedroom and sitting room combined,” explained Jonathan.
The master bedroom is also spacious and boasts an en-suite bathrom, while the other bedrooms are also good-sized double rooms, with plenty of storage being another bonus.
Outside, the garden offers plenty of scope for playing and relaxing, with an area of decking, a patio, a vegetable plot, garden shed ... and still some grass for the children to play on.
