Lower Craigmore is a substantial main door ground floor flat situated in a quiet residential area close to the centre of Cupar. Just a short walk from the centre of the thriving county market town, which offers an excellent range of local facilities, Lower Craigmore is also very well placed for speedy access into the golfing Mecca of St. Andrews, the ancient and historic university town renowned world wide as the “Home of Golf”. The resurgent city of Dundee, already home to Scott’s RSS Discovery and shortly to be the location of the new V & A Museum, provides a comprehensive offering of city shops, services and amenities with Perth about a half hour drive to the north-west and Edinburgh about an hours drive to the south. Home to an array of wildlife the beautiful rolling countryside around Cupar comprises a lovely mix of farmland, coastline, hill and river the result being a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast. There is considerable scope for walking, cycling, riding, sailing and of course golf with many highly regarded courses in the area including the championship course at Carnoustie and The Old Course at St. Andrews both of which regularly host the British Open, as well as Ladybank, Scotscraig, Elie and Crail to name but a few. In terms of days out the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk are within comfortable driving distance. There are good sandy beaches at Elie, Tentsmuir and St. Andrews along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. Well regarded state schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Cupar, Leuchars, Ladybank and Markinch with Edinburgh airport about one hour to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers a good selection of short haul flights.
Lower Craigmore forms the ground floor of a substantial sandstone Victorian villa and offers extensive accommodation on one level extending to about 219 sqm (2,357 sqft). The property is full of charm and character with high ceiling and many original features including decorative cornicing. The house has a handsome south facing façade with a central pedimented entrance, which leads into a vestibule with a mosaic floor with store and WC off. A spacious central hallway lies at the heart of the house, which leads off to a drawing room with an open fireplace and bay window looking out over the garden and over roof tops to the Hill of Tarvit in the distance. Also situated off the hallway are four spacious bedrooms as well as a dining/family room, which has a north facing window looking out over the neighbouring courtyard, and the family bathroom. Doors lead off the dining/family room to a kitchen and back hall with doors off to a side entrance and a substantial utility room with a log store and WC off.
Lower Craigmore is approached from Millgate by a private side drive, which leads through gates to a generous concrete parking area leading up to a double garage. Gravel paths lead round to the front of the house, where a series of lawned terraces, fringed by mature trees and shrubs, lead down to a high wooden fence at the bottom of the garden.
From South Bridge in the centre of Cupar turn into Millgate and continue for about 200m. The entrance to Lower Craigmore is on the left shortly before the Fire Station.
