Cadzow is a wonderful detached property in a lovely generous garden in a quiet residential area of Newport on Tay. With good river views and ideally positioned for accessing Dundee via the nearby Tay road bridge, the delightful village setting is perfect for the commuter having an array of local shops, a café, two primary schools and a sport centre. The local sailing club is based on the nearby Woodhaven Bay and the Royal Tay Yacht Club also provides further sailing opportunities at Broughty Ferry on the north side of the Tay. The resurgent city of Dundee offers a full range of shops and facilities and is already home to Scot's RSS Discovery. The city is also shortly to be the location for the eagerly awaited V & A museum which will be visible across the Tay from Newport on Tay. St. Andrews, the ancient and historic university town renowned world-wide as the home of golf, is just a twenty minute drive to the south-west with the busy County town of Cupar a similar distance to the south-west. Edinburgh is less than an hour to the south.
Newport on Tay provides easy access to some particularly outstanding and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and a lovely coastline all close by. The area is home to an array of wildlife and provides a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with cycling, walking, sailing and riding all readily available. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is best known however with numerous courses in a comparatively small area including the legendary Old Course in St. Andrews which regularly hosts the Open Championship, the next scheduled visit being the summer of 2015. Scotscraig, Ladybank, Kingsbarns, Downfield and Carnoustie are all also nearby along with the many other very highly rated courses in and around St. Andrews itself.
Shooting and fishing may be enjoyed locally and in terms of days out there are lovely sandy beaches at Tentsmuir, St. Andrews and Elie. There are a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Falkland Palace, Hill of Tarvit at Cupar and Kellie Castle outside Anstruther. The pretty fishing villages of Fife's quaint East Neuk are well within striking distance.
State schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided just across the Tay at the High School of Dundee or alternatively at St. Leonards in St. Andrews. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Dundee, Cupar and Ladybank with Edinburgh Airport about a forty five minute drive from Cadzow. The regional airport at Dundee operates a range of short haul flights.
Thought to date from the late 1800's and built by a well-known local architect for himself, Cadzow is a wonderful detached property of a notable and interesting design. Having been in the current owner's family for a lengthy period, and indeed believed only to have had a handful of owners since it was built, the house is of a charming dark stone construction under a slate roof with numerous interesting features such as crow-stepped gables and a turret to the rear. With views over the Tay to the front of the house, the accommodation is well presented with the layout over two floors comprising sitting room, breakfasting kitchen, conservatory, bedroom, hall and further ancillary accommodation at ground floor level together with drawing room, two bedrooms, bathroom and landing area at first floor level. Now in need of a degree of upgrading and modernisation Cadzow offers purchasers an excellent opportunity in a wonderful location.
The generous garden at Cadzow is an absolute delight with an attractive mix of plants, trees and shrubs as well as extensive lawned area to the front of the house. There is offroad parking adjacent to the garage.
