Bracklinn is an exceptional modern house situated in
a lovely private position off Westfield Road in a highly sought after area of Cupar. Just a short walk from the centre of the thriving county market town, which offers an excellent range of local facilities, Bracklinn 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.
The original part of the Bracklinn dates from around
1973 and was significantly upgraded and extended
around 2011 to create a comfortable and spacious
family house finished to a very high standard. The
extension benefits from a lovely tiled floor with under floor heating and the reception room has a mood lighting system, Sonos music system and full length windows with glazed sliding doors leading out to a the garden terrace.
Internally the accommodation is beautifully
proportioned and well laid out for entertaining and
modern family living. The main entrance leads into
a spacious split-level hallway, which leads off to
the family kitchen which has a range of fitted floor
and wall units with granite work tops and integral
Hotpoint oven, combination microwave oven, steam
oven and coffee machine. Other integral appliances
include a dishwasher and hob on the central island/

main reception room as well as a sun room, which
both have sliding doors leading out to the terrace.
Further doors lead off the kitchen to a study as well
as a back hall with doors off to a utility room, WC and integral double garage with Belfast sink and electric opening door.
The raised area of the central hallway has a spiral
staircase leading up to the master bedroom and a
