Full description

Fairnie House is attractively situated in the highly sought after central St Andrews Conservation Area close to the Byre Theatre, in the heart of Fife's golfing Mecca, accessed off South Street and close to St Leonards School, just moments from the town's thriving cosmopolitan shopping district which includes Market Street, North Street and South Street. The ancient and historic university town offers residents a superb mix of amenities and
facilities and is renowned world-wide as the "Home of Golf". The resurgent city of Dundee is some thirteen miles to the north with Edinburgh just over
an hour to the south. Fife's pretty East Neuk is easily accessible from St. Andrews with its quaint picturesque fishing villages such as Anstruther,
Pittenweem and Elie, as well as its charming and varied coastline, with Fife's bustling county market town of Cupar no more than ten miles to the west. Surrounding St. Andrews is some particularly fine countryside and coastline, with a lovely mix of farmland, woodland and hill ground. The result is home to an array of wildlife and provides an excellent choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including the Old Course at St. Andrews and the championship course at Carnoustie, both of which regularly host the British Open, as well as the New Course, Castle Course, Duke's Course and Jubilee Course to name but a few. In terms of days out there are lovely sandy beaches at St. Andrews itself, Tentsmuir, Kingsbarns and Elie, along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. Good state schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar and Dundee with Edinburgh airport just over one hour from the property. The regional airport at Dundee offers a good range of short haul flights.
Believed to date from the late 1700's and category C listed, Fairnie House is a beautiful and substantial town property offering extensive immaculately presented accommodation over three levels. Of an attractive stone façade under slate roof the property retains many delightful period features with the spacious bright living space having been carefully maintained and upgraded by the current owners. The main reception rooms are at first floor level with the well proportioned drawing room benefiting from an open fire. The dining room, breakfasting kitchen and office complete the accommodation at this level, with the family bathroom lying to the rear of the house between ground and first floor levels. There are three good bedrooms at ground floor level (two of which benefit from en-suite facilities) together with shower room, hall and vestibule. On the attic floor there are two further attractive bedrooms (one en-suite) together with study / further bedroom. Deceptively spacious, the accommodation has great charm and character with attractive features such as the large bright windows, several with working shutters, open fire, cornicing, lovely old staircase and beautiful woodwork making Fairnie House a wonderful comfortable home in an excellent location. The property has historically been operated very successfully as a B&B. To the rear of the house is a most charming enclosed sheltered garden with an attractive mix of plants and shrubs along with lawn and pond. There is a summer house and storage sheds. To the rear of the garden is a gate leading out to the lane to the rear of the Byre Theatre providing direct access to South Street.
