A beautiful property with great river views

A spacious house with commanding river views has been brought to the property market.

Presented by Galbraith, West Downiemount sits in a lovely position in the village of Tayport and enjoys views over the River Tay to Broughty Ferry and the Angus hills in the distance.

West Downiemount comprises a spacious Victorian family home largely constructed of white painted rendered stone under a slate roof with ornate cupula and weather vane.

The house has been refurbished by the vendors to a high standard and offers spacious and well-proportioned accommodation over two levels extending to about 231 sqm (2,510 sqft) and benefits from a cupula on the attic floor providing a spectacular vantage point looking out over the River Tay and beyond.

The house is full of charm and character and has many fine original features including high ceiling on the grounds floor with decorative cornicing and ceiling roses in the main reception rooms.

The main reception hall has bamboo flooring and the dining room and sitting room have oak flooring.

The kitchen/breakfast room has Karndean flooring, Rangemaster cooker and large walk in pantry.

The first floor has five bedrooms served by a lovely family bathroom.

There is a parking area at the top of the garden, which leads through an area of lawn down steps to a lovely terrace leading to a courtyard entrance at the south of the house.

The house can also be approached by a path from main road leading into Tayport, which leads up to a side entrance and to a deck looking out over the River Tay.

Situated off the garden path is a garden store of brick construction under a pitched slated roof and situated off the terrace is a further store and log store.

Tayport has some good local services including a village shop, restaurant/bar and primary school. Nearby Newport-on-Tay has a wider offering of amenities whilst the resurgent city of Dundee has an excellent range of services and is also home to the new V&A Museum.

The property is highly accessible, well positioned for access to Dundee, Cupar and St Andrews, with Perth, Aberdeen and Edinburgh also within comfortable driving distance.

Cupar, Fife’s bustling market town, lies an 11 mile drive to the south and offers an excellent range of shops and services as well as a thriving monthly farmers’ market whilst the ancient and historic town of St Andrews, globally acclaimed as the Home of Golf lies about 11 miles to the south-east.

There are good state primary and secondary schools in the area with independent schooling on hand at St Leonards in St Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Dundee whilst Edinburgh airport lies approximately one hour to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers selection of short haul flights.

The agents will consider offers over £360,000.
