Todhall House has an outstanding setting in beautiful gardens in the rolling hills of northeast Fife. The views from the property over the surrounding countryside are absolutely superb. The sea can be seen in the distance.
The house is set in front of a working farm and cottages on a hill between Cupar and St Andrews. St Andrews is 8 miles away and is renowned worldwide as "the home of golf". There are now seven golf courses at St Andrews including the Old Course, host to the Open Championship in 2022. There are many other golf courses in the area including The Duke's Course, Kingsbarns, Dumbarnie and Ladybank.
St Andrews is also well known for its university which was Scotland's first university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world, founded in 1413. The town provides state schooling at Madras College. There is private schooling at St Leonards in St Andrews and at The High School of Dundee. Glenalmond and Strathallan boarding schools are both near Perth.
Cupar is a market town with Bell Baxter High School, a supermarket, range of shops and professional services. Leuchars and Cupar railway stations are on the main Aberdeen to London line and provide a fast link to Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport, with its wide range of destinations, is 45 miles.
Todhall House is a delightful, stone built house with an impressive frontage. The central porch is flanked by curving walls on either side. The house is believed to date from the 1700s and was extended in the 1850s when the double-bay frontage was added. The two south facing, bow ended rooms are particularly attractive and are complemented by family rooms behind.
The house was formerly a farmhouse but has been separate from the farm for many years. The house has been fully refurbished in the past 12 years with a new kitchen and bathrooms, all the shutters being restored and has been fully redecorated.
