Southfield house is a wonderful Victorian farmhouse near Cupar in Fife. The property dates from about 1870 and constructed of stone beneath a slate roof. It retains many period features such as red cedar wood panelling, original floor tiles and period fireplaces.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors, and comprises hall, dining room, drawing room, kitchen, utility room, pantry, cloakroom, study, and four bedrooms including a master bedroom suite with a dressing room and a shower room.

The drawing room has a large south-facing bay window which makes the best of the views and fills the room with light. The dining room is also south facing and is ideal for formal entertaining, and a brand new kitchen has been installed.

Outside is a mature garden which has a sweeping lawn, an orchard with mature fruit trees, fruit cages and some light woodland. The paddocks are immediately behind the house and are currently let to a local farmer for grazing, but there is ample room for stabling should the buyer wish. The paddocks amount to around 4.5 acres total and the property as a whole has about 6.63 acres.

Southfield house sits on the edge of the Royal Burgh of Auchtermuchty in rural Fife. The town of Auchtermuchty provides daily amenities and the county town of Cupar nine miles distant provides a further range of services and facilities and St Andrews is just 19 miles away. The area is well known for its fabulous walking, riding and shooting and has some of the best golf courses in the world.

The guide price is £650,000, for further information please telephone Strutt and Parker on 0131 226 2500 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
