Ashcraig sits in a lovely quiet secluded country setting in the hamlet of Bottomcraig a short distance to the south-east of the sought after village of Balmerino in north east Fife. Surrounded by some exquisite countryside the property is well positioned for access to Dundee, Cupar and St Andrews, with Perth, Aberdeen and Edinburgh also within comfortable driving distance via the main M90 motorway network. Good local services are available in Gauldry, Wormit and Newport-on-Tay with
all of Dundee’s facilities and amenities on hand across the River Tay.
Cupar, Fife’s bustling county market town, lies 10 minutes drive to the south and offers an excellent range of shops and services, as well as a thriving monthly farmers market, whilst the ancient and historic town of St Andrews, globally acclaimed as the “Home of Golf”, lies about 12 miles to the south east. North East Fife provides access to an area
of particularly outstanding and varied countryside, with a lovely mix of hill, wood, river, farmland and coastline. As a result there is great scope for a wide variety of outdoor activities such as walking, cycling,
sailing and riding all being readily available. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is most famous however, with numerous top quality courses in a comparatively small area including the world renowned Old Course at St Andrews, which plays regular host to the Open Championship. Scotscraig, Ladybank, Downfield and Carnoustie are also all nearby. Shooting and fishing may be taken locally, with the lovely quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk, such as Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans and Elie within comfortable driving distance. The Fife Coastal Path leads through Balmerino. There are several good state primary and secondary schools in the area, with independent schooling on hand at a number of highly rated schools, including St Leonard’s at St Andrews and The High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Dundee, whilst Edinburgh airport lies approximately one hour to the south by road. The regional airport at Dundee offers a number of short haul flights.
Ashcraig is an excellent family house in an idyllic country setting. The house is understood to have been constructed about 16 years ago and offers superb well-presented comfortable accommodation over one level. Centred around the lovely spacious sitting room / dining room, with woodburner and glazed doors to the adjacent raised deck, the well appointed breakfasting kitchen also offers access to the rear deck. The attractive main bedroom benefits from en-suite facilities with three further bedrooms, family bathroom and hall completing the accommodation. Subject to all relevant consent and permissions being obtained it is believed that there may be scope for the creation of additional accommodation by way of loft conversion. Ashcraig stands in a delightful sizeable garden with plentiful driveway parking and an attractive mix of plants, trees and shrubs as well as lawn, stream and
sheltered raised deck which is ideal for outdoor entertaining.
