Fife is a county offering great amenity. St Andrews, the home of golf, offers numerous golf courses, including the world-renowned Old Course. As a coastal county there is a superb collection of beaches and coastal walks including the Fife Coastal Path running from Newburgh, onto St Andrews, through Elie and ending at the Kincardine Bridge. There are delightful fishing villages, numerous historical houses open to the public and a distillery at Kingsbarns. DESCRIPTION Harlswynd Farm is a delightful rural property, extending to about 41.5 acres (16.7 hectares) in total and centred on three terraced dwellings with traditional stables, kennels and further outbuildings. Enjoying a south facing aspect, the dwellings and buildings lie at the core of the subjects, surrounded by the land giving superb amenity with a ploughable grassland field to the north and further potential grazing with stream within the mini-glen to the south. The three terraced dwellings are of principally traditional stone and rendered construction with slate roofs and provide extensive accommodation with good sized rooms over two floors. Subject to obtaining the necessary consents the houses offer the potential to be re-modelled to create a principal house of scale or a principal house with annexe. The houses have been partially refurbished in recent years, including the replacement of some windows, roof repairs and installation of wood burning stoves. The accommodation of the 3 dwellings comprises:- Harlswynd 1 Ground Floor: Porch, Kitchen, Sitting Room and Dining RoomFirst Floor: 3 Bedrooms and Bathroom Harlswynd 2 Ground Floor: Kitchen and Sitting RoomFirst Floor: 2 Bedrooms and Bathroom Harlswynd 3 Ground Floor: Sitting Room, Kitchen and WCFirst Floor: 3 Bedrooms, Bathroom and Box Room Outbuildings Harlswynd Farm benefits from a good range of outbuildings.

A range of kennels lie immediately to the north of the houses and are a single-storey range of buildings of a combination of brick and stone construction (painted) lying under a combination of slate and corrugated metal roofing.

The farmland is principally classified as Grade 3.2 by the James Hutton Institute, with the grassland grazing field (about 27.82 acres) lying on the north side of the yard benefitting from a south-facing elevation. There are two fenced paddocks lying immediately to the north of the kennels. Lying to the front of the terraced houses is an extensive area of rough grazing with a stream running through, but following a programme of improvement this area could provide a useful further grassland field, or alternatively could be developed to provide a more natural and wildlife-friendly parcel of ground providing great amenity to the subjects with tree and hedging additions.
