SITUATION
Eden House is an exceptional Victorian house with separate lodge which stands in a prominent
position looking over Haugh Park in Cupar and just a short walk from the centre of the thriving
county market town, which offers an excellent range of local facilities. Eden 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 city of Dundee (13
miles), home to Scott’s RSS Discovery and the V & A museum, provides a comprehensive
offering of city shops, services and amenities with Perth about a forty minute drive to the
north-west and Edinburgh about an hour’s drive to the south. Well regarded state schooling is
available in Cupar with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews
and the High School of Dundee (which has a dedicated bus service passing through Cupar).
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.

DESCRIPTION
Eden House is a substantial Victorian home constructed of cut stone under a series of slate
roofs and it has a handsome south-west facing façade with two bay windows looking out over
to Haugh Park. In more recent years the property was used as a small hotel but it has since
been sympathetically converted back to a private house and upgraded by the current owner
with much of the original character of the house being retained. Of particular note are the
decorative cornicing, ceiling roses and high ceilings in the ground floor reception rooms. The
current owner has also replaced most of the windows with PVC double glazed units to improve
the energy efficiency and maintenance of the property.

Internally the accommodation is flexible and ideal entertaining and modern family living offering
accommodation over three levels extending to about 329 sqm. The ground floor offers a drawing
room and a lovely open plan kitchen/family room (incorporating an Aga and Belfast sink) with
a utility room off (with clothes pulley). Also on the ground floor are a cloakroom and a library
leading through to a spacious gym/home office. The principal bedroom accommodation on
the first floor is approached by an impressive staircase leading to a broad central landing and
comprises 4 bedrooms (one with an en suite bathroom with roll top bath and a separate shower
and one with an en suite WC) as well as a large family bathroom with roll top bath and separate
shower. The second floor accommodation can be approached by a staircase off the first floor
landing (or an external staircase) and comprises 2 further bedrooms, a bathroom and a living
room.
