Description

Pitmedden House is one of three modern houses built in a traditional style on the site of a former farm steading located in a superb elevated setting in the rolling hills of Fife. Locally, Auchtermuchty provides for day-to-day provisions and services, while Cupar and Kinross are both significant market towns. Pitmedden House also enjoys the advantage of excellent communications within central Scotland. The M90 is within 8 miles and provides swift access to Edinburgh and its airport.

The house is well placed for St Andrews, Dundee and Perth. Edinburgh is only 39 miles by road and Ladybank railway station is 7.5 miles away and offers regular commuter services as well as intercity services to the north and south. Cupar is an active town with a wide variety of shops, including supermarkets, a railway station and a good range of professional services. Schools in the area include St Leonards in St Andrews, Dollar, Dundee High School and Strathallan, Kilgraston and Glenalmond in Perthshire. Good state secondary schools are also available locally in St Andrews and Cupar, and a primary school in Auchtermuchty.

A short distance away the vibrant town of St Andrews (18 miles) is renowned worldwide as the ‘Home of Golf’. The Old Course is a regular host to the Open Championship and hosts the Dunhill annual pro-celebrity golf championship. There are seven golf courses run by the St Andrews Links Trust and the many other golf courses in the area include nearby Ladybank. St Andrews is also well known for its university, one of the oldest in Britain, founded in 1410.

Pitmedden House is a beautiful house constructed in 1993, using original stone. The property provides flexible and spacious accommodation over two floors with a tower room. There is an open plan kitchen and dining room area with a utility room and WC off. From the utility room, there are stairs leading down to an integral double garage. A large family room, which can also be used as a dining room has two sets of glazed doors leading out to two separate terraces. A side corridor with WC and stores providing plentiful storage, leads to the main hallway. There is a large drawing room which has a gallery above and doors leading out to a terrace which is also used as a seating area. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with excellent integrated storage and wardrobe space and an en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom. One of the bedrooms is currently being used as a study. There is also a family bathroom. Stairs lead up from the first floor to a 6th bedroom or family room. The views from these rooms provide a stunning outlook towards the Lomond Hills.

Pitmedden House is situated in extensive private grounds of approximately 10.1 acres. This includes just under 5 acres of grazing land and approximately 2.24 acres of woodland, with the remainder in lawn and garden. There is an established garden with different terraces surrounding the house. The house also benefits from having private access from the garden to Pitmedden Forest with miles of beautiful forest paths suitable for walking, cycling or horse riding. There are equestrian facilities which include power, water and automatic troughs in the paddocks. Situated off the paddocks is a stable building with power and water offering two substantial stables, feed store and tack room. The house also has a kennel building accessed from the kitchen terrace and there is a large shed which houses a ride-on lawnmower. The house is situated in a wonderfully elevated and rural location therefore the property attracts all kinds of wildlife including every day sightings of deer and red squirrels.
