An imposing country home set in 20 acres for families and friends hosting a special celebration, with walks and country pursuits on the doorstep.

Enjoying a wonderfully secluded location surrounded by its own gardens and grounds, this stunning property offers walks from the doorstep across beautiful farmland and gentle hills. Discover the medieval market town of Cupar (6.5 miles); browse the independent stores, see the 17th-century Mercat Cross and enjoy a riverbank walk through Haugh Park. The world-famous home of golf, St Andrews (17 miles) offers plenty to see and do. Explore the atmospheric ruins of St Andrews Cathedral, stroll along the headland to the 13th-century St Andrews Castle and see the infamous bottle dungeon, or practise your swing on one of the town's ten golf courses. Spend the day in Edinburgh (45 miles) taking in the sights of Scotland's capital city.

Hidden away in a quiet valley, your fabulous country retreat is approached via a long driveway offering glimpses of the property on its hillside location through the trees. Park on the gravelled area in front of the house and take a moment to appreciate the tranquillity of your surroundings. Step through the blue front door, into the grand entrance hallway with the wide staircase stretching away to the upper floors. Head along the hallway to your spacious sitting room where the feature fireplace, fine art and warm decor create a welcoming ambience that invites you to curl up on one of the cushion-strewn sofas and chat late into the night. Step through into the charming drawing room with open fire, comfortable sofas and piano, a lovely room for a family boardgame or pre-dinner drinks. Your light and airy kitchen is a complete delight to work in, with ample storage room for your provisions and bags of preparation space. Equipped with two electric ovens, a gas cooker, an AGA, microwave, three fridge/freezers and an additional freezer, catering for your party on a large scale is a dream. Two dishwashers are provided for your convenience and the handy utility room houses a washer/dryer. Enjoy leisurely breakfasts at the large kitchen table while making plans for your day. For family suppers and celebratory meals, your formal dining room has a gleaming wood table for guests to gather around and a wonderful atmosphere created by the fireplace, antique furniture and fine artwork adorning the walls. Dine late into the night enjoying convivial conversation with family and friends. For relaxed evenings, curl up in the library with a novel from the shelf or choose your favourite film to watch in the TV/cinema room with a bucket of popcorn to share. The ground floor shower room is perfect for freshening up after an energetic game in the garden. Ascend the wide staircase to the first floor where the tartan carpet creates a warm environment throughout the spacious landing and hallway leading to five bedrooms and the family bathroom. Crisp white linens, cosy duvets and luxurious soft furnishings create a real haven in all the bedrooms, the majority of which are en-suite. Off the hallway, your king-size bedroom overlooks the garden and enjoys a wonderfully spacious en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle and WC. Also, with an en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle and WC, the double bedroom is a restful space with views across the grounds. There is a further cosy double bedroom on this floor too. The bright twin bedroom has en-suite access to a shared bathroom with separate shower cubicle and WC. There is also a family bedroom and a spacious family bathroom with separate shower cubicle and WC. Take the stairs to the second floor where you will find a further four inviting bedrooms.

A further double bedroom boasts a large en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle and WC and there is another cosy double room completing the accommodation.

Outside, you have 20 acres of gardens and grounds to explore and play in. Walk through the beautiful farmland and say hello to the grazing livestock in their fields. Spread out your blanket for some sunbathing in the walled garden or play games on the lawn. If you're feeling indulgent, why not arrange for a hot tub to be installed for your stay?
