This charming newly constructed house is situated off The Pleasance in a lovely setting close to the centre of the sought-after conservation village of Falkland in the Howe of Fife. Just a short walk from the ancient Falkland Palace, the popular tourist attraction managed by the National Trust for Scotland. The house is well served by local shops and services within the village itself. There is a primary school just a short distance from the house and Falkland also has a post office and a number of shops, hotels and pubs. Impressively positioned in the lee of the Lomond Hills, the village is very well placed for access to Cupar, Dundee and St. Andrews as well as Fife’s charming East Neuk. And it allows rapid access to Edinburgh and Perth via the main M90 motorway that runs through west Fife.
Falkland offers ready access to the beautiful rolling countryside of Fife with a lovely mix of farmland, coastline, hill and river, the result being a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking cycling, riding, sailing and of course golf all readily available. The area is also home to an array of wildlife with the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills offering considerable scope. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including the renowned Old Course at St. Andrews which regularly hosts the British Open as well as Lundin Links, Crail, Ladybank, Elie and Leven. In terms of days out there are good sandy beaches at Elie, St. Andrews and Tentsmuir whilst the pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint east neuk which include Anstruther, Pittenweem and Crail are less than thirty minutes to the south-east. There are a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and of course Falkland Palace itself.
State schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews, Dollar Academy and the High School of Dundee to name but a few of the options. There are railway stations in Cupar, Markinch, Ladybank and Kirkcaldy with Edinburgh Airport less than a forty five minute drive to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers a good selection of short haul flights.
The house is in the process of being constructed by Lomond Group and once finished it will comprise a bespoke detached house situated in a lovely edge of village situation. The house is largely constructed of rendered walls under a pitched red tiled roof and once finished will offer beautifully proportioned accommodation over two levels extending to about 213 sqm (2,292 sqft).

The bedroom accommodation on the first floor will be situated off a spacious landing/study area and it will comprise a master bedroom with a dressing room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The house is approached by a shared driveway and is set in a spacious garden and will benefit from a spacious driveway and a single garage.
