Tamley House is a well presented and substantial detached modern home, which enjoys a lovely setting on the edge of the quiet hamlet of Foodieash in North-East Fife. The house was built about ten years ago and is one of an exclusive development of three properties situated on the north side of the hamlet with outstanding views out over the surrounding countryside. The house is situated a short distance to the north of the sought after town of Cupar, which offers an excellent range of local facilities and amenities with a good selection of shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants. 11 miles to the east lies the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews, renowned world-wide as the "Home of Golf". 12 miles to the north lies the resurgent city of Dundee, which is already home to Scott's ship RSS Discovery and will shortly be the location for the V & A Museum. Dundee provides a comprehensive offering of city shops, services and amenities. Perth is about half an hour to the north-west and Edinburgh about a one hour drive to the south. Surrounding Tamley House is some particularly fine countryside with a lovely mix of farmland, woodland, hill and river. The area is home to an array of wildlife and provides great scope for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling and riding all readily available. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including championship courses at Carnoustie and the Old Course at St. Andrews, both of which regularly host the British Open. Ladybank, The Duke's Course, Kingsbarns, Elie, Lundin Links and Crail are also nearby whilst the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the pretty fishing villages of Fife's quaint East Neuk such as Anstruther, Pittenweem and St Monans are within comfortable driving distance. In terms of days out there are good sandy beaches at St. Andrews, Elie, Kingsbarns and Tentsmuir, along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties, including Hill of Tarvit, Falkland Palace and Kellie Castle. State schooling is available locally in Cupar with independent schooling being provided at the High School of Dundee and St. Leonards in St.Andrews. There are railway stations in Cupar, Leuchars and Ladybank with Edinburgh airport about one hour to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers an increasingly good selection of short-haul flights.
