It was designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Trevor Dannat, which on completion in 1968 featured in lengthy articles in both 'Country Life' and 'Homes and Gardens' magazines. Now offered as a holiday home, it affords the opportunity for larger parties and groups of friends to holiday in a lovely area in spacious, light, airy and most comfortable accommodation.

Just 8 miles from St Andrews, the house stands in 50 acres of mature, secluded parkland and gardens which are shared with Goodall Cottage, though with that amount of space there is more than enough room for all.

Inside, the house has a stunning open plan design, with one side being almost entirely of glass, giving quite amazing views over the gardens and away to the Firth of Forth in the distance. There is a large, state-of-the-art kitchen and a dining area alongside.

Two steps lead up to a most attractive sitting area with open fire, oak flooring, Oregon pine ceiling and French doors to a raised, west facing patio, which overlooks the gardens. With garden furniture and a BBQ, it is a perfect spot to relax of a warm summer evening and watch the sun go down. Parents of young children should be aware that there is a drop off one side of the patio to the grass.

There are four bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom and a further bathroom. Oil fired central heating and double glazing ensure the house's cosiness whatever the weather.

Map & Local

The surrounding area is quite perfect for both family holidays and for sporting activities.

Just about every small town/village in Fife has its own often excellent golf course and you are just half an hour from the legendary courses at St Andrews (8m). There are wonderful beaches, notably at St Andrews and Tentsmuir and delightful coastal paths to explore.

Inland, there is the lovely village of Falkland with Mary Queen of Scots' turreted castle, while other historic buildings in the area are Hill of Tarvit and Kellie Castle with its marvellous gardens.

A family day out could take in a visit to the Scottish Deer Centre near Falkland, or Craigtoun Park near St Andrews, where there are activities to keep everyone happy all day. For rainy days, visit Scotland's Secret Bunker at Anstruther. Elie has lots of interesting little shops and the area is richly blessed with good restaurants.
