Ideal for the commuter, Raylite is a charming cottage offering wonderful generous living space in a popular highly accessible village. Star benefits from a primary school with other local services nearby in Markinch and Kennoway. The town of Glenrothes offers an excellent wide range of facilities including supermarkets, shops and general amenities. A short distance to the east lies the ancient and historic cosmopolitan university town of St. Andrews, renowned world wide as the “Home of Golf” and has an excellent range of specialist shops and facilities. To the north-east Fife’s main county market town of Cupar has a very good offering of local services and a regular Farmers’ Market, whilst approximately half an hour’s drive to the north, the resurgent city of Dundee is already home to Scott’s ship RSS Discovery and will shortly be the location for the new V & A Museum.
Surrounding Star is some particularly fine Scottish countryside with a lovely mix of farmland, woodland, hill and river. The result is home to an array of wildlife and provides an excellent choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling and riding all readily available along with fishing and shooting. There are many highly regarded golf 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. The wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk are within comfortable driving distance. In terms of days out there are good sandy beaches at St. Andrews, Tentsmuir and Elie along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties including Hill of Tarvit, Kellie Castle and Falkland Palace. State schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at the High School of Dundee and St. Leonards in St. Andrews. There are railway stations in Markinch, Kirkcaldy, Ladybank, Leuchars, Cupar and Dundee with Edinburgh airport only a thirty mile trip to the south. The regional airport at Dundee also offers a good selection of short haul flights.
Raylite is a charming cottage situated in the sought-after village of Star. The original part of the property dates from the late 19th century and was extended around the 1960s and is largely built of rendered walls under a series of tiled roofs. The house offers accommodation on one level extending to about 117 sqm (1,259 sqft) and is in good decorative order throughout.
The property is approached from the parking area to the north by a hallway which leads off to the bedroom accommodation as well as a spacious sitting room, kitchen and family bathroom. The sitting room has a lovely aspect out over the garden and benefits from a log burning stove and a doorway opening into the sun room/dining room, which has glazed double doors leading out to a lovely garden terrace. The kitchen has a good range of fitted floor and wall cupboards and the bathroom has tiled floor and walls with a mains pressure shower situated above the bath. The bedroom accommodation is situated off a side hall and offers three spacious bedrooms.
Raylite has a lovely south facing garden with areas of lawn contained by hedging and high wooden fencing. Situated off a monobloc side drive is a garage and useful garden shed and the garden also benefits from a greenhouse. The house is surrounded by an area of meadow, which has potential as a pony paddock or potentially development for other uses (subject to required planning consnts).
In the event of the purchaser obtaining planning permission for development of any part of the property a clawback provision will be inserted in missives of sale allowing the vendor to recoup 33% of the uplift in value over a 15 year period.
