The property is highly accessible, well positioned for access to Dundee, Cupar and St. Andrews, with Perth, Aberdeen and Edinburgh also within comfortable driving distance. 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 market town, lies a nine mile 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 thirteen miles to the south-east.
North-East Fife provides access to an area of particularly outstanding and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and coastline. As a result there are a wide range of outdoor activities on hand with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is most well-known however with numerous top quality courses in a comparatively small area including the world renowned Old Course at St. Andrews which regularly hosts the Open Championship. Other notable courses include Ladybank, Scotscraig, Kingsbarns and Crail. Shooting and fishing may be taken locally with the lovely quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk such as Elie, Anstruther and St. Monans well within striking distance.
There are good state primary and secondary schools in the area with independent schooling on hand at a number of highly rated schools including St. Leonards in 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. The growing regional airport at Dundee offers an ever increasing number of short-haul flights.
Craggan was built in 1956 of rendered walls under a steep pitched slate roof and sits in a commanding position with outstanding views and offers the potential to create an outstanding family home. The property benefits from double glazed windows throughout and the reception rooms have been designed to make the most of the exceptional views out over the River Tay and distant Perthshire and Angus hills. Many of the original features of the house have been retained including the parquet flooring which runs through most of the accommodation.
The house is approached at garden level by an entrance porch which leads up a broad stairway to a bright and spacious entrance hall with a cloakroom off. The lounge has a broad picture window looking out over Wormit Bay as well as an open fireplace, which has a log lift to the side allowing logs or coal to be drawn up from the coal store at garden level below. A glazed sliding door leads off the lounge to a terrace and a further sliding door leads off to a dining room with a glazed door leading off to a conservatory. A further door leads off the dining room to a kitchen/breakfast room, which has excellent storage cupboards and a pantry.
A side hall has doors leading off to a back hall and a large utility room with an excellent range of storage cupboards and twin Belfast sinks. A corridor (with a safe and storage cupboards) leads off the entrance hall to a bathroom (with separate shower), WC and four spacious bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have generous built in cupboards and bedroom 3 has a wash basin.
Accessed from the corridor by a Ramsay ladder is a floored loft with good head height, which may have potential for other uses (subject to obtaining necessary consents).
At garden level (and approached by a corridor off the entrance porch) is a garage corridor, which has doors off to two spacious store rooms, a log/coal store and single car garage.
Craggan sits at the end of the cul-de-sac of Viewmount Road and is approached by a gated entrance leading through the grounds to a parking area in front of the integral garage. The extensive grounds of about 0.7 acres are largely laid to grass and are interspersed by mature trees and shrubs.
