With superb westerly views to the Lomond Hills, 6 The Row is a delightful property which stands in an attractive quiet setting in the popular conservation village of Letham on the northern edge of Fife’s fertile agricultural plain which is known as the Howe of Fife. Letham is on a bus route and has a primary school. The village has a lovely quaint feel with many delightful old buildings and lots of open space including a children’s play area. Additional local facilities and services are on hand in the nearby villages of Ladybank and Auchtermuchty with a wider offering in the bustling local county market town of Cupar where there is an excellent range of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs and a thriving monthly farmers’ market. Going further afield accessibility to the cities from Letham is excellent with Dundee, Perth and Edinburgh all within comfortable driving distance. The main motorway network is easily accessed via the M90 at Milnathort or Bridge of Earn with the centre of Edinburgh approximately forty five minutes by road. There are railway stations in Ladybank, Cupar, Markinch and Leuchars with Edinburgh’s busy international airport also well within striking distance. The ancient and historic town of St. Andrews with its renowned golf links and famous university is about fifteen miles to the east.
The glorious countryside which surrounds Letham is home to an array of wildlife and for the outdoor enthusiast offers easy access to a wide range of recreational pursuits including walking, cycling, riding and golf with many highly regarded courses within easy reach including Ladybank, Scotscraig, Lundin Links, Elie and the many fine courses in and around St. Andrews where the Old Course plays regular host to The Open – the next visit being July 2020. Shooting and fishing may be taken locally and there are some fine pheasant shoots nearby. In terms of days out there are several popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Falkland Palace, Kellie Castle and Hill of Tarvit at Cupar. There are lovely sandy beaches at St. Andrews, Elie and Tentsmuir with the pretty East Neuk fishing villages such as Anstruther, St. Monans and Pittenweem on hand for day trips. The wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills are also close at hand. Letham is home to the renowned Secret Garden outdoor children’s nursery and has a local primary school, with state secondary schooling available at Bell Baxter in Cupar. Independent schooling is available nearby at a number of highly rated schools including St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee.
Extensively refurbished and upgraded by the current owners, 6 The Row is a charming deceptively spacious former weaver’s cottage in a lovely quiet village setting. Externally the quaint façade is of an attractive dark stone exterior under red tile roof with a colourful collection of plants and creepers adding to the charm. The flexible accommodation is presented in very good order and comprises a superb extensive open plan sitting room / dining room within the former loom room to the rear of the house with gas fired stove, vaulted ceiling and very useful galleried study / office above (accessed via spiral staircase), as well as a sprung wooden floor with the room understood to have been used for dancing and entertaining in the past. Off the loom room is a good walk in storage cupboard and there is also a hatch through to the kitchen with its gas fired Redfyre range style cooker. The spacious conservatory was replaced in 2012 with sliding glazed doors linking it with the loom room and also split pane glazed doors through to the third bedroom. There are two well proportioned double bedrooms to the front of the house, enjoying the good views over the Howe of Fife to the landmark Lomond Hills. Also upgraded by the current owners is the beautiful family bathroom with slipper style bath and separate shower / wet area. The hall, vestibule, utility room and additional WC completes the ground floor whilst to the front of the house is a good attic room accessed via a ladder from the main hall which, subject to all relevant consents and permissions being obtained, it is believed may have considerable scope for conversion to create additional living space if required. In terms of outside space the truly delightful enclosed rear garden is a particular feature of the property with neat lawn and a lovely mix of plants, trees and shrubs as well as timber summer house and separate garden shed. There is a sheltered seating area adjacent to the conservatory whilst a shared pend offers access down the side of the house to the side door at the utility room.
