The Butler’s House is a handsome red sandstone house dating back to 1749. The property was restored in the 1970’s in conjunction with The National Trust for Scotland. The house and large garden offer development potential subject to the normal planning permissions.

Positioned on the corner of Blinkbonny Road it is a recognisable landmark within Arncroach and enjoys lovely views over the country toward the Firth of Forth.

Arncroach is a charming hamlet close to Kellie Castle, Gillingshill nature reserve and around 2 miles from the popular East Neuk villages of Anstruther, St Monans, and Pittenweem (famous for its picturesque harbour and Arts Festival held annually in August). Historic St Andrews, the home of golf and famous university town, has further excellent amenities and is around 10 miles away.

The accommodation on the ground floor consists of a reception hall, dining kitchen, spacious bedroom with en suite shower room. The first floor drawing room enjoys panoramic elevated views. The two further bedrooms benefit from fitted storage. The family bathroom has a four piece white suite.

The property benefits from an attic and electric heating. The house is a blank canvas ready for new d├ęcor and some general modernisation, enabling purchasers to put their own stamp on it. There is off-street parking adjacent to the house.

The garden is almost a third of an acre and may be of interest as a potential plot, although it should be noted that planning permission has not been investigated or obtained. Bounded by a traditional stone wall wrought iron gates allow access for off street parking. A timber summerhouse is in situ. The garden is mostly laid to grass with a herbaceous flower bed and some specimen trees. The garden is across the lane from the house.
