Ferryfield Cottage is a charming sandstone house situated in a very private position in a quiet residential area close to the centre of Cupar. Just a short walk from the centre of the thriving county market town, which offers an excellent range of local facilities, Ferryfield Cottage is also very well placed for speedy access into the golfing Mecca of St. Andrews, the ancient and historic university town renowned world wide as the “Home of Golf”. The resurgent city of Dundee, already home to Scott’s RSS Discovery and shortly to be the location of the new V & A Museum, provides a comprehensive offering of city shops, services and amenities with Perth about a half hour drive to the north-west and Edinburgh about an hours drive to the south. Home to an array of wildlife the beautiful rolling countryside around Cupar comprises a lovely mix of farmland, coastline, hill and river the result being a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast. There is considerable scope for walking, cycling, riding, sailing and of course golf with many highly regarded courses in the area including the championship course at Carnoustie and The Old Course at St. Andrews both of which regularly host the British Open, as well as Ladybank, Scotscraig, Elie and Crail to name but a few. In terms of days out the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk are within comfortable driving distance. There are good sandy beaches at Elie, Tentsmuir and St. Andrews along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. Well regarded state schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Cupar, Leuchars, Ladybank and Markinch with Edinburgh airport about one hour to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers a good selection of short haul flights.
Ferryfield Cottage is constructed of blond sandstone under a series of pitched slate roofs and offers accommodation over two levels extending to about 154 sqm with a lovely south facing façade, with rose bushes either side, looking out over the garden with the Hill of Tarvit visible in the distance. The property has been upgraded by the current owners and is in excellent decorative order throughout and benefits from modern double glazed windows. A unique feature of the house is the stripped wooden flooring in much of the ground floor which was sourced from a gym hall and hence some of the pitch markings are evident.
A spacious stairways hall lies at the heart of the house with doors leading off to a lounge and kitchen/dining room. The lounge offers a comfortable family room with a stove set into a recessed fireplace finished in stone. The kitchen/dining room benefits from recessed ceiling lights and off the dining area is a large cream coloured stove set into a recessed fireplace. The kitchen area has a good range of floor units with feature hanging pendant lights. Also on the ground floor is a bedroom with a good range of fitted cupboards on one wall. A family bathroom and utility room to the rear complete the ground floor.
The accommodation on the first floor offers a master bedroom with a recently installed en suite shower room and a second bedroom. Both bedrooms enjoy outstanding views out over the surrounding roof tops to the lovely countryside surrounding Cupar.
Ferryfield Cottage is approached from Lorraine Drive by a gated entrance which leads to a generous monoblock parking area leading up to a large wooden garage with a log store to the side.
