Meadowside is a fantastic spacious family house offering generous living space on the edge of the popular village of Balmullo, close to St. Andrews. The village benefits from a primary school, shop, pub, post office and bowling club. A short distance to the east lies the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews, renowned worldwide as the “Home of Golf” and with its excellent range of specialist shops and facilities. To the south-west Fife’s main county market town of Cupar has a very good offering of local services and a regular farmers’ market. To the north the thriving city of Dundee is home to the V & A museum and Scott’s ship RRS Discovery.
Surrounding Balmullo is some particularly fine Scottish countryside with a lovely mix of farmland, woodland, hill and river. The result is home to an array of wildlife and provides an excellent choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling and riding all readily available along with fishing and shooting. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including the Championship Course at Carnoustie and the Old Course at St. Andrews, both of which regularly host the British Open which returns to St. Andrews in 2021 for its 150th anniversary. The wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills and the pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk are within comfortable driving distance. In terms of days out there are good sandy beaches at St. Andrews, Tentsmuir, Kingsbarns and Elie along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties such as Hill of Tarvit, Kellie Castle and Falkland Palace. State schooling is available locally with independent schooling available at Dundee High School and also St. Leonards in St. Andrews. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar and Dundee with Edinburgh airport just over an hour to the south.
