The Miller’s House is a most attractive country property standing in a lovely rural setting a short distance to the west of St. Andrews in Fife. Enjoying views over the surrounding fields and countryside, the property is very well placed for accessing St. Andrews, Cupar, Dundee and the East Neuk. In terms of local amenities St. Andrews is just a 5 minute drive from the house and is renowned worldwide as the “Home of Golf”, offering a fine cosmopolitan mix of shops, restaurants, pubs and the like. The flourishing city of Dundee is approximately 30 minutes to the north, with the new V & A museum and Scott’s ship RSS Discovery. Edinburgh is just over an hour by road to the south.
The glorious rolling countryside and coastline around Dewars Mill and St Andrews is home to an array of wildlife and for the outdoor enthusiast offers ready access to a wide range of recreational pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and golf. There are many highly regarded golf courses within easy reach including the plethora of top courses in and around St. Andrews, such as the Old Course which regularly hosts The Open – due to return in 2021 for its 150th anniversary - Kingsbarns, the Castle Course, the Duke’s Course, Crail and Scotscraig to name but a few. Challenging fishing and shooting may be taken locally with the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and several lovely beaches including St. Andrews, Tentsmuir, Kings Barns, Crail and Elie all within reach. In terms of day trips there are a number of National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Falkland Palace, Hill of Tarvit and Kellie Castle, while the pretty villages of Fife’s East Neuk are only a short drive to the south.
Good state schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews along with the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Markinch with Edinburgh airport about 1 hour to the south. The busy regional airport at Dundee also offers a good range of short haul flights.
