The Old Manse is an outstanding most substantial property quietly positioned in a sought after residential area of Kirkcaldy and enjoying superb views over the Firth of Forth. Known as the “Lang Toun” the popular Fife town is very well located for the commuter and benefits from a comprehensive offering of services and amenities including several large supermarkets, shops, banks, health centres, restaurants, pubs and hospital. Kirkcaldy Farmers Market is a regular event selling high quality Scottish produce. A wider offering of amenities is available in Glenrothes and Dunfermline which are both close by, with St Andrews, Perth, Dundee and Edinburgh all within comfortable driving distance. From Kirkcaldy there is easy access to the lovely quaint villages of Fife’s East Neuk such as Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem and Elie whilst the glorious countryside and coastline in the area comprises a lovely mix of rolling hills, woods, farmland, river and beaches offering considerable scope for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, riding, cycling, sailing, shooting and fishing all readily available along with an abundance of wildlife. Without question though it is the game of golf for which Fife is best known with many highly rated courses in a comparatively small area including the Old Course at St. Andrews which plays regular host to the Open Championship along with the likes of Ladybank, Lundin Links and Crail. Accessibility is excellent with the centre of Edinburgh less than one hour distant by road. There is a main line railway station in Kirkcaldy whilst Edinburgh airport is about 26 miles from the house. Primary and secondary schooling is available locally with independent schooling available at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee, along with several highly rated schools in Perth and Edinburgh.
