Peacefully situated in the picturesque Fife countryside, the property offers residents a tranquil and enviable setting.

The ancient university town of St Andrews globally renowned as ‘The Home of Golf’ is a mere twenty-minute drive to the east. For an even greater choice of cultural and visitor attractions, vibrant Dundee, home to the V&A and the revitalized waterfront with the famous RRS Discovery is close by. Perth is within comfortable driving distance, as is Edinburgh, approximately an hour to the south.

The area boasts various visitor attractions including National Trust for Scotland properties such as Hill of Tarvit House, Kellie Castle, and Falkland Palace. Alongside local schooling in Cupar, there are private options available at St Leonards in St Andrews and at The High School of Dundee. The property is conveniently situated near the local bus route, and there are train stations in Leuchars, Springfield, Cupar, Ladybank, and Markinch, with Edinburgh International Airport forty-five minutes away by car. Domestic flights are available from Dundee.
