Glebe House is a beautiful country property comprising a wonderful substantial ten year old Simon Wilson built executive house with a delightful garden and exceptional southerly views in a secluded and enchanting setting at Portmoak, a short distance to the east of Kinross. Local services and amenities are available in Scotlandwell, Kinnesswood, Milnathort and Kinross which between them offer a good range of shops and the like. In terms of city facilities there is rapid access to Edinburgh and Perth via the M90 motorway and accessibility to Edinburgh and Edinburgh airport will shortly be significantly enhanced with the opening of the new Queensferry Crossing in late summer 2017. Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes and Dundee are all within comfortable driving distance whilst the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews, "Home of Golf", is about a forty-five minute drive to the east.
Beautifully positioned to the east of Loch Leven and to the south of Bishop Hill, Glebe House offers great scope for walking, riding and cycling as well as a range of other country pursuits with the immediate surrounding area also providing a rich home for all manner of wildlife including red squirrels, deer, badgers and many birds. But it is probably golf for which this part of Scotland is most well-known with many top courses in the area including the renowned Old Course at St. Andrews, Ladybank, Kingsbarns, Kinross, Aberdour and Gleneagles also not far away. In terms of days out and visitor attractions the area is well served by a number of National Trust for Scotland properties including Falkland Palace, Culross village, Kellie Castle and Hill of Tarvit with the wide-open spaces of Bishop Hill and the Lomond Hills also offering great scope. The quaint vishing villages of Fife's East Neuk are within a short drive while the beautiful glens of Perthshire and Angus are less than an hour to the north.
There are several good state primary and secondary schools in the area with Glebe House being in the catchment for Kinross High School. Independent schooling is available at Dollar Academy, St. Leonards in St. Andrews, Dundee High School, and a number of Perth and Edinburgh schools. The area around Portmoak is well connected in terms of accessibility with the new Queensferry Crossing set to improve communications with the central belt dramatically.
