This bespoke development of nine quality homes will sit on a village green on the east side of the quiet hamlet of Foodieash in North-East Fife. Foodieash is situated a short distance to the north of the sought after town of Cupar, which offers an excellent range of local facilities and amenities with a good selection of shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants as well as a regular Farmers Market. 11 miles to the east lies the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews, renowned world-wide as the “Home of Golf”. 12 miles to the north lies the resurgent city of Dundee, which is already home to Scott’s ship RSS Discovery and the V & A Museum which is due to open in 2018. Dundee provides a comprehensive offering of city shops, services and amenities. Perth is about half an hour to the north-west and Edinburgh about a one hour drive to the south.
Surrounding Foodieash is some particularly fine countryside with a lovely mix of farmland, woodland, hill and river. The area is home to an array of wildlife and provides great scope for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling and riding all readily available. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including championship courses at Carnoustie and the Old Course at St. Andrews, both of which regularly host the British Open. Ladybank, The Duke’s Course, Kingsbarns, Elie, Lundin Links and Crail are also nearby whilst the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk such as Anstruther, Pittenweem and St Monans are within comfortable driving distance. In terms of days out there are good sandy beaches at St. Andrews, Elie, Kingsbarns and Tentsmuir, along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties, including Hill of Tarvit, Falkland Palace and Kellie Castle.
State schooling is available locally in Cupar with independent schooling being provided at the High School of Dundee and St. Leonards in St.Andrews, which both have dedicated bus services from Cupar. There are railway stations in Cupar, Leuchars and Ladybank with Edinburgh airport about one hour to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers an increasingly good selection of short-haul flights.
The Green will be accessed by a tarmac road leading off the minor public road through Foodieash. All the houses will be situated off the same side of the lane and look out over the central green.
The detached homes will be built by experienced local developers and sit in well proportioned plots offering a range of sizes from three bed detached house extending to about 103 sqm to larger four bedroom houses extending to about 209 sqm. Plots 1 and 2 (offering the larger house design) will be completed in the initial phase of the build.
