There is a primary school at Falkland as well as a post office and a number of shops, hotels and pubs. Impressively positioned in the lea of the Lomond Hills, the village is very well placed for access to Cupar, Dundee and St. Andrews as well as Fife’s charming East Neuk.

The house has a traditional period appearance with an external staircase leading up from West Port to the main entrance on the first floor. To the south side the current owners have recently added an attractive conservatory which enjoys a lovely aspect up towards East Lomond. Internally the accommodation is an excellent decorative order which has been totally refurbished by the current owners and includes a lovely modern kitchen with dining area. The family room has a cathedral ceiling and opens into the conservatory as well as into the sitting room. NB The sitting room has its own return door to the landing and at one time (prior to an internal wall being removed) served as fourth bedroom; by rebuilding a partition wall it would be relatively easy to recreate a fourth bedroom to the property. The conservatory benefits from air conditioning (powered by an energy efficient air source heat pump), which opens out to a lovely garden terrace. The first floor shower room is accessed from the landing. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor with exposed ceiling beams, which are served by a family shower room. In addition on the ground floor are a spacious utility room as well as a staircase hall with fitted bookshelves and a built in cupboard as well as a rear entrance providing alternative ground floor access.ACCOMMODATION Ground Floor: Porch. 3 bedrooms, shower room, utility roomFirst Floor: Family room, sitting room, dining kitchen, conservatory, shower roomGARDEN A path leads from West Port to steps leading up to an easily maintained private garden with established shrubs.
