Holly Cottage is a delightful country cottage in the popular hamlet of Blebo Craigs. It is positioned at the end of a single lane road with utter privacy and seclusion, without isolation. It stands in extensive gardens and enjoys exceptional views to the west over Cupar, to the Lomonds, and even further beyond. A public footpath passes nearby to lead to Kemback. In addition to the main house Holly Cottage benefits from a detached annexe providing further accommodation as a holiday cottage or for other family members.
Blebo Craigs is a well-positioned hamlet situated between St Andrews and Cupar offering the lifestyle and tranquillity of country living with all the conveniences of both towns, only 5 miles away each. Blebo Craigs is within commuting distance of other larger centres such as Dundee, Edinburgh and Aberdeen thanks to the mainline railway station at Cupar.
Holly Cottage is a rare find as although it looks traditional in style, it in fact was completely re-built in the year 2000 after a fire devastated the original building. It has been recreated to complement the surrounding properties but benefits from modern construction. It is heated by way of oil fired central heating from a tank, backed up with sealed unit double glazing throughout.
The accommodation has been carefully considered in order to make best of the stunning aspects to the west, with all the public rooms positioned to this side of the house and with large windows to enjoy the view. The spacious lounge has a whole wall of windows, and two doors which give direct access to the garden. It also benefits from an open fireplace, built in to a feature stone wall. In the lounge is a hidden door which opens to the morning room which is more obviously accessed from the utility. The dining room also enjoys a feature stone wall and French doors opening to the garden and the cathedral ceiling adds grandeur to the room. The kitchen is fitted with an abundance of wall and floor units with integrated double oven and two hobs, (one Calor gas and one electric,) integrated dishwasher and freestanding fridge/ freezer. Off the kitchen is the utility which is fitted with washing machine and tumble dryer and with a sink and drainer. A door leads from here to the garden.
Also at ground floor level off the hall is a cloakroom with w.c and sink, with a cupboard housing the hot water tank. From the dining room a door opens to a separate hall where three of the bedrooms and the bathroom are found. The bathroom is fitted with large corner bath with shower from a mixer tap, a w.c and sink and a separate shower cubicle with power shower. The master bedroom enjoys French doors opening to the garden and a dressing room, with fitted wardrobes, which leads to the en-suite fitted with shower cubicle, w.c, bidet and sink. The two further bedrooms are both fitted with wardrobes, cupboards and drawers and bedroom two enjoys the lovely views. Upstairs are two further rooms which could be used as further sleeping accommodation or, as the most recent owners have done, as games rooms.
Detached from the house is the annexe which was built in 2008 with beautiful stonework to the exterior. At ground floor level of the annexe are the two bedrooms and bathrooms, and stairs rise to the first floor where there is an open plan living space fitted with a kitchen and suitable for living room and dining area. This has been thoughtfully designed to enjoy the same beautiful views as the main house with velux windows and Juliette balcony. The kitchen is well fitted with modern units, integrated oven and hob, and fridge.
The property stands in extensive and well-developed, mature gardens. There is a large driveway providing parking for several vehicles and a single garage. The majority of the gardens are laid out to lawn but well decorated with mature trees and a rockery sits next to the house. An area of the garden remains as woodland, and a patio lies next to the house to provide a seating area with a view.
