East Pitcorthie Farm steading is located in an attractive and quiet location about 20 metres from the B917 and with slightly elevated eye-catching views out to sea to the south and east. The original farmhouse lies to the south of the steading and there is a cottage to the north east of the steading. These houses are excluded from the sale and will use a separate existing access road which cannot be used for the farm steading. The owners of the steading have to build a new road into the steading development from the north as the owners of the steading cannot guarantee control of the visibility splays from the existing access road. There are large outbuildings which lie to the west of the traditional steadings which are also for sale and which could be converted into stables. There are several acres of land available for paddocks to the west of the proposed access road and beside the agricultural sheds. The paddock to the west is 1.45 acres.

Existing planning consent - Fife Council ref 08/02770/efull - which comprises of four attached houses in an L shape. The buildings to the west and south of the quadrangle do not have planning consent to be developed. It is anticipated that the west leg is left for outbuildings storage for the archway conversion plot which lies to the east of it. The stone building along the south edge of the quadrangle is going to be demolished by the present owners and this will open up the views to the south for the three more northerly plots. It's anticipated that the four/five house plots could be developed by one contractor on behalf of four/five different house purchasers, or sold off separately as serviced plots with the owners servicing them. The selling agents are arranging for three quotations from nearby builders to give a turnkey solution for the four or five houses.

The sellers will be installing mains water, electricity and a soakaway for the septic tanks, if the plots are sold as serviced plots. The purchasers will have to install their own septic tanks.
Proposed alternative planning consent

A planning application is being prepared for four or five detached houses, with one being a conversion and four being new builds. It is proposed that the barn with the five acres on the west side be developed into a detached 1 ½ storey conversion house. This house would also have the traditional barn opposite and to the west as an outbuilding. It would also have most of the area in the centre of the existing quadrangle as garden area. The existing stone walls at the north and south of this barn would become external walls. The barn to the north of the arches building will become a detached conversion house. It will become a t-shaped 1½ storey building with an additional extension to the east. It is proposed that a detached new build house will be built on the footprint of the existing buildings to the south of the arches building and that one or two detached new build buildings be built along the north edge of the existing quadrangle.
