The location is part of the charm of this lovely home, set in a delightful semi-secluded location whilst being a stroll from the local amenities in the town itself. The location is an historic one which has a history traceable back to the mid 18th Century and here in the present day there are good local amenities including shops and schools close by. Leven town centre is a mere 3.5 miles away, where a wider variety of shops and amenities can be found, as well as Leven beach and Golf Courses. The property is well-placed for transportation routes with very quick and easy access to the motorway system allowing major towns in Fife, Dundee, Edinburgh, Perth and beyond to be reached within a comfortable drive. There is a local extensive bus service across Fife and onwards. Edinburgh Airport is easily accessible by motorway in less than an hour. The commuter will also benefit from rail stations in nearby Markinch and Kirkcaldy. There are theatres, cinemas and retail parks a short drive away in Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes, as well as excellent sports facilities in Leven and Glenrothes. A wide variety of local water sports are available in nearby East Neuk coastal towns, and the historic village of Falkland, once home to Mary Queen of Scots, is just a fifteen-minute drive away.
