Dairyman’s Cottage lies in a semi-rural situation on the edge of Elmwood College Farm, which lies just over 1 mile from the western fringe of the nearby county town of Cupar.
Cupar has an excellent range of shops and professional services as well as a railway station on the main East Coast line, making Edinburgh and Dundee easily commutable on a daily basis. The house is also very well placed for speedy access to the golfing Mecca of St. Andrews (11 miles), the ancient and historic university town renowned world wide as the home of golf. The resurgent city of Dundee (15 miles), 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 hour’s 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. 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 in the area 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.
Dairyman’s Cottage sits in a generous garden and is constructed of cream painted rendered walls under a series of pitched rosemary tiled roofs. The house offers well proportioned accommodation on one level extending to about 78 sqm (840 sqm) and it has a central hallway with doors leading off to a spacious sitting room (with a picture window with a lovely view out over Elmwood Golf Course), as well as the three bedrooms, kitchen and shower room.
