Tenure: Freehold

A delightful, south-facing farmhouse with outbuildings, four paddocks and extensive views over the Firth of Forth in a stunning rural location. The property extends to approximately 6.17 acres (2.5 hectares) or Thereby.



Situation
Bonnyton Farm is situated to the south of Cupar with good access to the A915 and A916 public roads. The property occupies a prime south-facing position to the north east of Leven with stunning views over Largo Bay.

The four paddocks surrounding the property are well sized for equestrian use while the whole property is surrounded by arable farmland.

The property is well positioned for easy access to the north and south with the main A92 located less than 10 miles to the west. Airports can be found at both Dundee and Edinburgh providing regular flights to London and other international destinations. The main rail network can be accessed at nearby Cupar with services both north and south.

Directions
From the north, enter the town of Cupar and head south on the A914 before turning left onto the A916 signposted for Leven. Continue on the A916 for approximately 4.7 miles and turn left at the signpost for New Gilston and Lundin Links. Continue on this road for 0.4 miles and turn left at the sign for New Gilston and Peat Inn. After approximately 1 mile, turn right at the crossroads and take the first farm track on the left at the Branxton sign. Bonnyton is located approximately ½ a mile along this road. From the south, leave Leven on the A916 and follow the directions above, turning right at the signpost for New Gilston and Lundin Links.

Description
Lying between approximately 140 metres and 160 meters above sea level the land at Bonnyton has a generally southerly aspect. There are currently four small paddocks, three of which are stock fenced and which would be ideal for grazing horses and/or livestock. The land is predominantly Class 3:2 as detailed by the James Hutton Institute. The main soil type is a silty clay loam which is capable of producing a range of crops and would allow the main enclosures to be ploughed and cropped if required. The property extends to approximately 6.17 acres (2.5 hectares) or thereby in total with approximately 3.5 acres of grass.

Bonnyton farmhouse, steading, buildings and paddocks:

• Farmhouse – Traditional farmhouse of sandstone construction with modern extension. Accommodation includes 5 bedrooms, 2 public
rooms, kitchen, utility, bathroom and shower room.
Situated in a well-tended garden laid principally to lawn with exceptional southerly views over Largo Bay. Bonnyton Farmhouse benefits from a 4kW photovoltaic system generating an annual return in the region of £1,200.

• Traditional steading – Sandstone steading with pitched tile roofs and partially ruined in places. May be suitable for residential development subject to the appropriate consents being sought. Includes livestock accommodation and adjoins a more modern building of steel portal construction currently used for storing hay and straw. Various additional storage outbuildings are included.

• Atcost style shed – Concrete portal construction with concrete floor and brick grain walls currently used as a workshop and general store.

• Paddocks – Three defined paddocks with an additional area currently used as a stack yard. With approximately 3.5 acres of well established grass this would provide an excellent ring-fenced area for keeping horses or livestock on a small scale.
