The Cobbles is an exceptional contemporary family house, forming part the exclusive Russell Main Steading (converted around 2014) and is surrounded by tranquil Fife countryside. The house is very well placed for the commuter, just outside Cupar Muir and a short distance to the south-west of the sought after county market town of Cupar, which provides an excellent range of local shops, services and amenities together with primary and secondary schooling. St. Andrews, the ancient and historic university town renowned world wide as “The Home of Golf” is a twenty minute drive to the east, with the full range of city amenities and facilities readily accessible in the resurgent City of Dundee, currently home to Scott’s RSS Discovery and the new V & A museum. Perth is also within comfortable driving distance with Edinburgh less than one hour to the south.
The Cobbles provides access to an area of particularly outstanding and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and a lovely coastline all close by. The area is home to an array of wildlife and presents a fine choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is most well known however with numerous top courses in a comparatively small area including the world renowned Old Course at St. Andrews which plays regular host to the Open Championship, with the next scheduled visit being the summer of 2021.
Ladybank, Lundin Links, Elie, Scotscraig, Kingsbarns, Crail and the Duke’s Course are all nearby along with the many highly rated courses in and around St. Andrews itself. The lovely quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk such as Anstruther, St. Monans, Pittenweem and Crail, several good beaches such as Elie and St. Andrews and the vast open spaces of the Lomond hills are also all within easy reach. In terms of visitor attractions, the area is well served by a number of National Trust for Scotland properties including Falkland Palace, Kellie Castle and Hill of Tarvit House. There are several state primary and secondary schools in the area with independent schooling on hand at St. Leonards in St. Andrews, the High School of Dundee and several well regarded schools in the Perth area. There are railway stations in Springfield, Cupar, Ladybank, Markinch and Leuchars with Edinburgh airport about forty five minutes away by road. Dundee airport operates a range of short haul flights.
