Location

Freuchie is a village well placed to the south of the Howe of Fife, a stretch of open countryside with a rich agricultural heritage. There are excellent road and rail links making the house exceptionally well placed for commuting to Edinburgh, Dundee, Perth and the larger Fife towns. There is a local primary school and nursery in the village, which feeds into Bell Baxter High School, and a very active cricket club.
St Andrews lies 17 miles to the east. It is well known for its university and also world renowned as the home of golf, being the seat of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and the Old Course, arguably the most famous golf course in the world. The city of Dundee is home to the Scottish base of the V&A Museum which opened in September 2018 to much acclaim. The city also has two highly regarded universities: The University of Dundee and Abertay University.

Description

FREUCHIE MILL HOUSE (LOT 1)
Freuchie Mill House is fine property located on the outskirts of the village of Freuchie overlooking farmland to the north and to woodland and pasture to the south. The driveway leads to a turning circle and parking area to the side of the house where the principal entrance to the house opens into the reception hall. The reception rooms are versatile rooms. The larger room with bay window as a dining room but would be well suited as a formal sitting room. The sitting room is a very comfortable room with an open fire. It has double doors which open into the study area, which would also work well as a dining room. The study leads into the conservatory which sits above the terrace and has a wonderful outlook over the garden. The kitchen is a typical country kitchen with space for a central table. Adjacent to the kitchen is a conveniently located utility room with a shower room and a back door to a side terrace. There is also a good store and boiler room.

On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has built in wardrobes and a large bay window. Each bedroom has a washbasin with the exception of one which has an en suite shower room.

The garden is a delight. It is sheltered with beautiful mature trees, a mill lade running along the southern edge, bounded by colourful herbaceous borders. The heritage of the site is embraced by the mill stone which is set to the east of the garden.

DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY (Lot 2)
In the paddock to the south there is a large garage/workshop building which has planning consent to be converted to a dwelling. While minor works have been undertaken to implement the planning permission, the property has three phase electricity and continues to be used as a garage and store. There is a first floor currently accessed by ladder. Full details are available on https://planning.fife.gov.uk/online [Ref: 10/00210/FULL] and further information is available on request.

PADDOCK (Lot 3)
The paddock is a large section of amenity land comprised of a variety of rough grazing, orchard, wildlife pond and woodland. A separate access off the A72 could be reinstated where there is already a dropped curb.
