Full description

GENERAL
Auchenblae sits in a lovely quiet position in the hamlet of Kirkton of Balmerino with the most outstanding views over the River Tay with the Perthshire and Angus hills in the distance. The property is highly accessible, well positioned for access to Dundee, Cupar and St. Andrews, with Perth, Aberdeen and Edinburgh also within comfortable driving distance. Good local services are available in Gauldry, Wormit and Newport on Tay with all of Dundee's facilities and amenities on hand across the River Tay. Cupar, Fife's bustling market town, lies ten minutes' drive to the south and offers an excellent range of shops and services as well as a thriving monthly farmers' market whilst the ancient and historic town of St. Andrews, globally acclaimed as the Home of Golf lies about thirteen miles to the south-east.

North-east Fife provides access to an area of particularly outstanding and varied countryside with hill, wood, river, farmland and coastline. As a result there is a wide range of outdoor activities on hand with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is most well-known however with numerous top quality courses in a comparatively small area including the world renowned Old Course at St. Andrews which regularly hosts the Open Championship. Other notable courses include Ladybank, Scotscraig, Kingsbarns and Crail. Shooting and fishing may be taken locally with the lovely quaint fishing villages of the East Neuk such as Elie, Anstruther and St. Monans well within striking distance.
There are good state primary and secondary schools in the area with independent schooling on hand at a number of highly rated schools including St. Leonards at St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Dundee whilst Edinburgh airport lies approximately one hour to the south. The growing regional airport at Dundee offers an ever increasing number of short-haul flights.

DESCRIPTION
Auchenblae is a rare gem of a property, seldom available and finished to a very high standard. Originally constructed in 2007 and comprehensively refurbished and improved by the current owner in the last eighteen months, the house is of a delightful stone exterior under a slate roof with glazed veranda to the side. The deceptively spacious accommodation is both immaculate and delightful, with a superb kitchen/dining room at the heart of the house benefitting from a double-height ceiling with three Velux windows.

A lovely double bedroom, family shower room and hall with excellent storage completes the ground floor. Upstairs there are two good double bedrooms, one of which benefits from en-suite facilities. Auchenblae is beautifully finished with great attention to detail and offers charming, comfortable accommodation well suited either as a permanent home or as a holiday house. The furniture and contents may be available by way of separate negotiation.
