Privately nestled in over an acre of magnificent garden grounds, Kemback Cottage is a sympathetically extended and deceptively large five-bedroom, detached family home filled with lovely period features, where large windows and glazed doors fill the space with light and enjoy a tranquil and leafy outlook.

The property and its breath-taking surroundings offer quintessential country living, yet a short three-mile journey takes you to the heart of the bustling and historic town of Cupar, and an eight- mile journey takes you to St Andrews.

Privately screened from the lane by a stone wall and mature hedges, a large drive gives access to the cottage and its vast garden grounds flowing to banks of the Ceres Burn. A vestibule (with fitted storage) welcomes you in and gives access to a generous hallway. Enjoying a sunny southeast and southwest aspect overlooking the gardens from double windows and a large glazed patio door, is a generous living room with warmly toned wood flooring and an attractive feature fireplace, fitted with a woodburning stove. Also enjoying a sunny double-aspect, woodburning stove, and wooden flooring, is a formal dining room with access to a glazed porch (used as a sunny sitting area with garden access) and the neighbouring dining kitchen. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of quality units, framed by a Corian worktop, and comes with an integrated ceramic hob, extractor hood and double oven. There is enough space for a large table and chairs, plus a dresser, making it ideal for family meals. A generous utility room is accessed from the kitchen and comes with excellent fitted storage, space for whitegoods, plus a large larder cupboard and a second storeroom with garden access. It also leads to a sunny southwest-facing conservatory/ green house, ideal for growing herbs and vegetables, with an already established mature grapevine.

The ground floor houses four of the five bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys a large footprint with triple-aspect windows and outstanding fitted storage space. The second bedroom is also a generous double with fitted wardrobes, whilst the third bedroom is a small double. A home office (or bedroom four) comes with a recess with fitted shelving creating a small library space. A family bathroom with underfloor heating, fitted with a three-piece-suite and a modern shower room, fitted with a walk-in double shower, service the bedrooms. A handy guest WC can also be found on the ground floor. Leading up the stairs (lit by a Velux window), is an enormous room currently utilised as a games and bedroom. This spacious attic room comes with ample fitted storage and double aspect windows (including skylights) creating an airy ambiance.

Externally, the pièce de résistance of this magnificent home is its breath-taking gardens. Thoughtfully landscaped into zones, the generous plot consists of a paved patio (ideal for alfresco dining), a large lawn, mature trees, shrubs, and flowerbeds, a wild garden, a pond, a herb garden, and a wide range of flowers and colourful planting all around the property. The property also reserves rights to fish to the centre-line of the Ceres Burn (with some restrictions on the fish species which may be caught). Ample parking and outdoor storage space are provided by a generous garage, a workshop and vast pebbled drive for multiple vehicles. Solar panels, oil central heating, wood burning stoves and double glazing ensure a warm yet cost-effective living environment all year round. EPC Rating – E.

Extras: all fitted floor coverings, light fittings (excluding the dining room) and integrated kitchen appliances included in the sale. A ride-on lawnmower and table tennis table are available by separate negotiation.
