Priory Farmhouse is a beautiful country property comprising a wonderful substantial extended farmhouse with delightful garden and grazing / amenity ground in a secluded and enchanting edge of village setting at Gauldry, a short distance over the Tay Bridge to the south-west of Dundee. Local services and amenities are available in Gauldry itself as well as Newport-on-Tay and Balmullo which between them offer a good range of shops and the like. In terms of city facilities, there is rapid access to Dundee from Gauldry, whilst just a short drive to the south east is the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews, “Home of Golf”, and which offers an excellent selection of services and is a major tourist destination. Fife’s popular county town of Cupar is also nearby.
Surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, Priory Farmhouse 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 wild-life including red squirrels, deer, badgers and many birds. But it is probably golf for which Fife is most well known with many top courses in the area, including the renowned Old Course at St. Andrews, Ladybank, Scotscraig, Carnoustie, Kingsbarns and The Duke’s Course. In terms of days out and visitor attractions the county is well served by a number of National Trust for Scotland properties including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace, with the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk also within a short drive. The beautiful glens of Angus are a short drive to the north of Dundee and include Glen Isla, Glen Clova and Glen Doll.
There are several good state primary and secondary schools in the area with independent schooling available at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. The area around Gauldry is well connected in terms of accessibility, with Dundee just a short drive to the north via the Tay Bridge. The centre of Edinburgh can be reached in just over an hour whilst Edinburgh’s busy International airport lies around an hour to the south by road. There are mainline railway stations in Cupar, Leuchars, Dundee, Ladybank and Markinch.
Priory Farmhouse is an outstanding country property comprising a superb extended former farmhouse, quietly positioned on the edge of Gauldry with a charming garden and excellent grazing / amenity ground.
