About this property

  • Ploughman's Cottage is believed to date from 1890 when it was known as East and West Ploughman's Cottages. Today the old stone cottages have been joined together and extended to form a delightfully comfortable house with an unforgettable view.

    A paved path leads to the front door where a small lobby opens into a charming kitchen. The kitchen has been fitted with Clive Christian solid oak units beneath a granite worktop and has integrated appliances including an electric Neff hob, oven and microwave. A central island backs onto a former chimney breast which now forms a neat division between the kitchen and the dining area. The dining area is connected to the garden room making it a lovely bright room which also showcases the beautiful view. A solid oak dresser, also by Clive Christian, is an attractive backdrop to the dining area. Beside the dining room is the sitting room which is a cosy room with a wood burning stove set into a feature stone fireplace. A door from the sitting room also leads into the garden room which is positioned at the front of the house and is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the fabulous view which extends to the hills of north Fife. French windows from the garden room lead onto a wrought iron balcony which has steps down to the garden.

    The master bedroom is at the eastern end of the house and has an en suite bathroom and dressing room. Two further double bedrooms and a shower room are located at the western end of the house where there is also a linen cupboard and a laundry/utility cupboard.

    Below the garden room and accessed from the garden are two further rooms which are currently used for storage and as an office respectively. They are both decorated and served with light, power.

    Ploughman's Cottage is approached by a private driveway which leads to a tarmac parking beside the house and the garage. Behind the house an impressive bank of rhododendrons sits in front of the wooded hillside, which is filled with bluebells in the spring. To the front of the house is a terraced garden which is imaginatively planted and broken up by pathways. There are several lovely places to sit out and enjoy the view in good weather. Beyond the landscaped garden is an enclosed paddock which would be ideal for keeping hobby livestock.

    Tool shed
    Double garage served with light, power and water.
