Enjoying a wonderfully secluded leafy setting on the Keil Burn, the magnificent Old Mill is attractively situated in the highly sought-after village of Lundin Links, close to the renowned Lundin Golf Club. Lundin Links is an attractive seaside village situated on Fife’s celebrated East Neuk coastline and adjoins Lower Largo to the east. As the westernmost of a string of charming historic East Neuk villages and towns, Lundin Links is, therefore, the most accessible to the towns of Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes, as well as Edinburgh and the remainder of the central belt. The remaining villages of the East Neuk and St Andrews are a short drive to the east.

Lundin Links has a selection of local shops, a highly regarded Tom Morris / James Braid links golf course, 9-hole ladies golf course, bowling club, tennis club and the Old Manor Hotel is also a popular dining venue. The Lundin Ladies Golf Club (nine holes) is the oldest woman’s Golf Course in the world. Neighbouring Upper Largo has an active Cricket Club and the harbours of the East Neuk and beaches at Elie ad Largo Bay are popular daytrip and tourist destinations. Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes are within 15 minutes’ drive and both are significant regional centres with a wide range of employers, services and leisure facilities.

The A90 from Kirkcaldy leads to the M90 and thereby the Queensferry Crossing and Edinburgh. There are nearby rail links at Markinch and Kirkcaldy and Edinburgh Airport can be reached in about 45 minutes. The adjoining Lower Largo is an ancient fishing village best known as being the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk who provided the inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe. This village retains a number of important historical buildings and also has an attractive sandy beach. The Crusoe Hotel is a popular newly refurbished restaurant / pub.

General Description

The Old Millhouse is an outstanding most substantial and flexible C listed family home, beautifully presented, very spacious and significantly upgraded by the current owner. It comprises a lovely traditional stone-built property under a red pantile roof and was created from a former flour mill and outbuildings thought to date from the 18th/early 19th century. Full of character and charm, the accommodation is both generous and spacious, with the superb large main sitting room very much at the heart of the house and complete with lovely open fire and traditional beams. The impressive garden room is off the sitting room, double height and with lots of glass allowing natural light to flood in. Glazed doors lead out to a garden terrace, with a door to the rear providing internal access through to a useful garden store. Across the fabulous galleried main hall, at the western end of the house, is the well-proportioned formal dining room, ideal for entertaining. Completing the ground floor is the generous and utterly charming dining kitchen, with external doors to the front and rear, cosy Aga, breakfast bar and utility room and wc off. There are four excellent bedrooms at first floor level along with two bathrooms and the magnificent central gallery over the main entrance hall. There is a further bedroom with ensuite bathroom, dressing room and sauna at attic level. Depending on individual requirements it is believed that there could potentially be scope to form a self-contained flat within the house, subject to all relevant building and planning consents – offering possibilities for multi-generational living or Airbnb letting and such like.


Early viewing is advised.



The Old Millhouse stands in a delightful, quite extensive leafy garden, bounded by the Keil Burn to the north and east. The house is approached via a private track off Mill Wynd, with gravel parking at the house offering ample space for several vehicles. With a wonderful mix of mature plants, trees and shrubs there are also areas of lawn and several charming, sheltered seating areas / terraces.     


There is a double garage with useful loft storage above.
