Woodside Cottage is a charming house set in a lovely semi-rural situation on the edge of the hamlet of Charlottetown in the heart of the Howe of Fife. Local services and facilities are available close by in Ladybank and Freuchie, whilst the bustling market town of Cupar, just a short drive to the east, provides an excellent range of amenities with a good mix of shops, restaurants, supermarkets and the like. Slightly further afield, Glenrothes, about 6 miles to the south, provides for all city facilities, whilst to the east, the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews also offers an excellent selection of amenities and is also a major tourist destination.
Lying in the heart of Fife as it does, Charlottetown offers ready access to some particularly fine countryside, with large mixed woods literally on the doorstep, and a lovely mix of rolling hills, wood, river and coastline all within easy reach. Outdoor enthusiasts are particularly well catered for with riding, walking, cycling, sailing and fishing all readily accessible, but it is perhaps golf which Fife is most famous with many top quality courses in the region including the world renowned Old Course at St. Andrews. In terms of visitor attractions and days out, the area is well served by a number of National Trust for Scotland properties including Hill of Tarvit Mansion, Kellie Castle and Falkland Palace, with the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk also a short drive away. Cupar is home to a thriving monthly Farmers’ Market. There are a number of good state primary and secondary schools in the area, with independent schooling on hand at St. Leonards in St. Andrews, The High School of Dundee and Kilgraston at Bridge of Earn.
The area benefits from excellent accessibility with the cities of Glenrothes, Dundee, Perth and Edinburgh, with its international airport, all within a forty minute drive south of Charlottetown. There are mainline railway stations in nearby Ladybank (with regular trains to Edinburgh in under an hour), Cupar and Markinch and a local bus route passes regularly by the cottage.
Woodside Cottage is a charming semi-detached house largely constructed of rendered walls under pitched slate roofs and offers well proportioned and well maintained accommodation over two levels extending to about 132 sqm. The house can be approached from a porch to the west side of the house or from a parking area to the east, which lead into the kitchen. The house is fully double glazed and has been well maintained and upgraded by the current owner. The ground floor comprises a porch, reception room, family kitchen, dining room, third bedroom and WC. The first floor offers two bedrooms and a wet room.
To the east side of the house is a parking area and to the rear is a generous well stocked garden, largely laid to lawn with a terrace leading up to the back door. On the west side of the house a footgate leads through a low stone wall to a small area of garden.
From Glenrothes take the A92 in a northerly direction signposted for Dundee and the Tay Road Bridge. After passing Freuchie turn left onto the B937 and continue to the junction with Charlottetown. Woodside Cottage is situated on the right hand side at the five roads junction (opposite the war memorial).
