Millbank House is a beautiful period house which stands in an attractive setting on Millbank in a sought after residential area in Cupar, just a short walk from the centre of the thriving county market town which offers an excellent comprehensive range of local facilities and amenities. Millbank House is also very well placed for speedy access to the golfing mecca of St. Andrews (9 miles), the ancient and historic university town renowned world wide as the “Home of Golf”. The thriving city of Dundee (13 miles), 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 facilities with Perth about a half hour drive to the north-west and Edinburgh about an hour’s 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 - with the next scheduled visit being Carnoustie in July 2018 and St Andrews in 2021 for the 150th anniversary tournament. 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, Kingsbarns and St. Andrews along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area 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.
Recently upgraded and extended, Millbank House is an exceptional family home constructed of attractive sandstone under a slate roof. The house has an impressive façade with an arched entrance with bay windows either side surmounted by stone carved pediments overlooked by the dormer windows on first floor.
