Substantial Georgian mansion set in lovely grounds on the edge of Cupar 3 reception rooms, 6 bedrooms, study 3 bathrooms. Beautifully maintained gardens with summerhouse and surrounded by mature woodland Extensive basement with considerable potential Double garage and various outbuildings Secluded private setting with far reaching views towards Hill of Tarvit About 2.5 acres (1.01 ha) Ferrymuir House is a substantial Georgian mansion situated in lovely grounds and enjoying a delightfully secluded setting on the edge of Cupar off the Westfield Road, considered to be one of the town's most sought after residential areas. Just a short walk from the centre of the thriving county market town, Cupar offers an excellent comprehensive range of local facilities, including shops, restaurants, pubs and several supermarkets. Ferrymuir House is also very well placed for speedy access to the golfing Mecca of St. Andrews (9 miles), the ancient and historic university town renowned world wide as the 'home of golf'. Well regarded state schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Cupar, Leuchars, Ladybank and Markinch with Edinburgh airport about one hour to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers a good selection of short haul flights. Ferrymuir House comprises a substantial extended Georgian mansion in a lovely private wooded situation off Westfield Road on the edge of the sought after town of Cupar. The original part of the house dates from 1810 and is constructed of sandstone under a series of pitched slate roofs with lovely south facing façade and lovely aspect out over the gardens towards the Hill of Tarvit in the distance. More recent pavilions have been added either side of the original part of the house to provide a lovely sun lounge to the west and the kitchen with associated accommodation to the east. The house is approached from the parking area to the north by an impressive porch with Roman Doric columns either side. Internally the accommodation does require some modernisation and upgraded but is beautifully proportioned and is full of charm and character with many of the original features being retained such as the open fireplaces, working window shutters and dado rails in the principal reception rooms. The impressive hallway has archways, wood panelled walls to dado height and a wonderful wall hung stone staircase leading up to the first floor. In brief the accommodation comprises vestibule, hall, cloakroom, study, bathroom, sun lounge, drawing room, dining room, wc, kitchen (with Aga), various stores at ground floor level. The bedroom accommodation on the first floor is approached from a broad landing hall and comprises three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms (1 en suite to master bedroom), and a study/child's bedroom. In the attic are two bedrooms and a large walk in attic store. The house also has an extensive basement with a work shop, bathroom, boiler room, two games rooms, cellar and various stores (subject to all consents and permissions). The basement level could be upgraded to provide garden level accommodation to compliment the main part of the house. Ferrymuir House is situated in beautiful and well maintained gardens fringed by mature specimen trees (including Cooper Beech and Chestnut) and it enjoys an exceptional outlook over open countryside with the Hill of Tarvit clearly visible to the south. Situated in the garden are a small pond, garden house with a terrace, two greenhouses and various garden stores. The house is approached from Westfield Road by a tarmac drive which leads through woodland to a parking area to the rear of the house off which is a double garage and carport.
