GENERAL
Church House is a substantial and most impressive country property standing in a wonderful position with a delightful garden and lovely views over the surrounding fields and countryside, just a short distance to the west of the popular town of Cupar in Fife. Good local services and amenities are available in Cupar, which offers an excellent range of shops, restaurants, supermarkets and the like. In terms of city facilities there is straight-forward access to Dundee and Perth, whilst a short drive to the east lies the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews which also offers a wide range of services and is also a major tourist destination.
The hamlet of Bow of Fife is surrounded by some truly glorious Fife countryside which is home to an array of wildlife and in terms of recreational pursuits offers great scope for walking, cycling, riding and golf with many highly rated courses within easy reach including Ladybank, Leven, Lundin Links, Scotscraig and Kingsbarns as well as the many fine courses in and around St. Andrews where The Old Course regularly hosts the British Open – the next scheduled visit is in 2021 for the 150th anniversary of the event. Challenging shooting and fishing may be taken locally with some fine pheasant shooting nearby. The Fife Hunt is the most northerly pack of fox hounds in the UK and there are many opportunities for riding with pony clubs for the younger enthusiast. There is racing and polo at Scone outside Perth which is also the venue for the annual Scottish Game Fair. The pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk such as Anstruther, Elie, Pittenweem and Crail are just a short drive to the south whilst in terms of days out the open spaces of the Lomond Hills are close at hand along with a number of National Trust for Scotland properties including Hill of Tarvit outside Cupar, Kellie Castle and Falkland Palace. Fife’s beautiful and varied coastline includes several good sandy beaches such as Tentsmuir, Kingsbarns, St. Andrews and Elie.
State schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews, the High School of Dundee and several well regarded schools in the Perth area. There are railway stations in Ladybank, Cupar, Leuchars, Markinch and Perth with Edinburgh airport approximately forty-five minutes to the south. The busy regional airport at Dundee offers a good selection of short haul flights.
DESCRIPTION
Church House is a most impressive country property, beautifully and sympathetically converted to provide outstanding, flexible accommodation well suited to modern day family living. The building dates from 1843, with later additions, and was the church serving the local community until the 1980’s, at which point the transformation into a superb family home began. The house is Category ‘C’ Listed and sits in approximately 0.5 acres of garden ground with the imaginative conversion creating a unique and delightful property with many superb features which could have significant potential for business use such as holiday letting, B & B or similar (subject to consents). With a natural split between the front and rear sections of the house, the formal drawing room/dining room to the front is quite superb, retaining many notable ecclesiastical features and with the superb stone carving of particular note. Adjacent are three excellent double bedrooms (1 en-suite with a further shared bathroom). To the rear of the ground floor is the lovely kitchen/breakfast room and beautiful family room/study with wood-burning stove and separate open fire – folding doors offer scope to use the family room / study either as one large room or alternatively as two separate rooms. Completing the ground floor is the fifth bedroom with en suite facilities, the family shower room, halls, storage and further ancillary accommodation. The first floor accommodation is accessed by either the main tower staircase or a feature spiral staircase from the main hall area. The spacious upstairs sitting room offers excellent flexible living space whilst the adjacent master bedroom benefits from a dressing room with walk in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. Overlooking the main ground floor drawing room is a wonderful galleried reading area and there is also a further separate shower room at this level. Above the family room / study, and accessed via a ladder, are two useful attic rooms whilst there are three unique rooms in the tower with the top floor (former belfry) enjoying wonderful panoramic views over the surrounding fields and countryside.
