20 Hillpark Terrace sits in a lovely elevated position on the edge of Wormit and enjoys particularly fine views out over Wormit Bay and the River Tay with the Perthshire and Angus Hills visible in the distance. Wormit has some good local services including a village shop, restaurant/bar and primary school. Nearby Newport-on-Tay has a similar offering of amenities. The resurgent city of Dundee has an excellent range of services.
The property is highly accessible, well positioned for access to Dundee, Cupar and St. Andrews, with Perth, Aberdeen and Edinburgh also within comfortable driving distance. Good local services are available in Gauldry, Wormit and Newport on Tay with all of Dundee’s facilities and amenities on hand across the River Tay. Cupar, Fife’s bustling market town, lies a nine mile drive to the south and offers an excellent range of shops and services as well as a thriving monthly farmers’ market whilst the ancient and historic town of St. Andrews, globally acclaimed as the Home of Golf lies about thirteen miles to the south-east.
North-East Fife provides access to an area of particularly outstanding and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and coastline. As a result there are a wide range of outdoor activities on hand with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is most well-known however with numerous top quality courses in a comparatively small area including the world renowned Old Course at St. Andrews which regularly hosts the Open Championship.
There are good state primary and secondary schools in the area with independent schooling on hand at a number of highly rated schools including St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Dundee whilst Edinburgh airport lies approximately one hour to the south. The regional airport at Dundee has a growing selection of short haul flights.
20 Hillpark Terrace was built in 1894 by Alexander Stewart and is a charming period semi-detached house largely constructed of stone under a series of pitched slate roofs. The property benefits from many fine original features including open fireplaces and the high quality pitched pine staircase. The house is approached by an open porch, which leads into a vestibule with WC off. A stairways hall lies at the heart of the house, which leads off to a sitting room with bay window, open fireplace and feature built in bookcase with secret compartment. A corridor leads off to a kitchen/breakfast room (with walk in pantry) and dining room (with open fireplace and built in cupboard). Situated off the kitchen/breakfast room is a useful utility room with a walk in store, pantry with cold shelf and a side entrance. Accessed from either side of the side entrance are a coal store and garden store.
A wooden staircase (with feature window) leads up to the bedroom accommodation on the first floor with store cupboard and bathroom accessed off a half landing. The bedroom accommodation comprises four spacious bedrooms with bedroom 1 benefitting from a broad bay window with a particularly fine view out over the River Tay.
Parking is available on Hillpark Terrace, where a path leads up a sloping garden to the entrance. A side path leads round to a further area of garden, where there is a washing green and two wooden garden sheds. There is also a further garden store in need of renovation.
