15 Beechgrove Rise
15 Beechgrove Rise stands in an attractive extensive garden, quietly positioned backing on to mature woodland, in the highly regarded and sought after Richmond Homes Beechgrove Rise development in Cupar in Fife. Just a short walk from the centre of the thriving county market town, which offers an excellent range of local facilities, 15 Beechgrove Rise 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 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, 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.
