A Georgian villa in Cupar
Roseville is a prestigious C Listed Georgian stone built villa dating from around 1824, and located in the attractive town of Cupar.
The property is well positioned for many central hubs - you can reach St Andrews in 15 minutes (10 miles away), Dundee in 20 minutes (13 miles away), Perth in 30 minutes (23 miles away) and Edinburgh in 60 minutes (45 miles away), although when the new Forth Road Bridge opens in 2017 this will shorten the time it takes to commute to the capital. Cupar also has its own train station which connects to all major UK destinations as well as excellent bus links across Scotland.
Roseville is positioned within extensive, enclosed garden grounds, entered through a driveway secured by wrought iron gates, and which leads up to a wide private parking area with two garages.

The entrance vestibule leads into the hallway and has an eye-catching ceiling archway feature, small low cupboard and press with stained glass door. Glazed French doors lead from the hallway to the conservatory, which offers delightful open views over the enclosed garden.
The lounge has a unique and original curved wall along with ornate cornicing and a feature stone fireplace with open fire. Two sets of windows offer views to the front and side of the house. The dining room also has some fantastic features such as glazed French doors which lead into the conservatory, ornate cornicing and centre ceiling rose.
