Woodmoor is situated in an outstanding cliff top position off West Road in the sought after village of Newport-on-Tay, with grounds leading down to the River Tay. It has good river views and is ideally positioned for accessing Dundee via the nearby Tay Road Bridge. The delightful village setting is perfect for the commuter having an array of local shops, cafés, a primary school and sports centre. The local sailing club is based at the nearby Woodhaven bay and the Royal Tay Yacht Club also provides further sailing opportunities at Broughty Ferry on the north side of the Tay. The resurgent city of Dundee offers a full range of shops and facilities and is already home to Scott’s RSS Discovery. The city is also shortly to be the location for the eagerly awaited V & A Museum which is now visible across the Tay from the property. St. Andrews, the ancient and historic university town renowned world-wide as the home of golf, is just a 11 mile drive to the south-west.
State schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided just across the Tay at the High School of Dundee or alternatively at St. Leonards in St. Andrews. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Dundee, Cupar and Ladybank with Edinburgh Airport about a forty five minute drive from Woodmoor. The regional airport at Dundee operates a range of short haul flights.
It is perhaps golf for which Fife is best known with numerous courses in a comparatively small area including the legendary Old Course in St. Andrews which regularly hosts the Open Championship. Scotscraig, Ladybank, Kingsbarns, Downfield and Carnoustie are all also nearby along with the many other very highly rated courses in and around St. Andrews itself.
Woodmoor is a substantial three bedroom property laid out over two floors of a listed building with many original features being retained.
A main door entrance leads into a bright and spacious reception hallway with a “lantern” roof light and a door off to a master bedroom designed in a “drum” style with built in cupboards and another “lantern” roof light. Also situated off the reception hallway is a small study and a dining room, which both have beautiful views across the water. A door leads from the dining room to a bright and spacious sitting room with a wood burning stove, large bay window (with exceptional Tay views) and a glazed door leading out to a balcony. Approached by glazed double doors off the sitting room is a recently installed kitchen, with two Velux windows and serving opening. A rear corridor leads off to a bedroom, family bathroom, store cupboards and a staircase leads down to the lower ground floor.
The lower ground floor offers a spacious bedroom (with an outstanding view out over the River Tay) as well as a games room (with stove), workshop, utility room and various stores. A doorway off the utility room leads out to a passageway with a cellar and a door connecting to a path down to the shore.
Externally, the property has a mix of garden, woodland and cliff face with steps leading down to the shore. Double gates lead off West Road to a private parking area off which is a derelict former cottage and laundry, which has potential for other uses.
A foot gate off West Road leads down to an area of enclosed garden with a path leading to the main entrance.
