South Kinaldy House, a large stone steading dating to 1803, was originally designed as stables and carriage house for Kinaldy Farm. The secluded steading is B listed and was converted to a home around 1980 and then completely and creatively remodelled and renovated in 2008 and 2009 with subsequent major updates in 2011 and 2014.
South Kinaldy House is steeped in character and has high quality finishes throughout which seamlessly blends traditional with contemporary. The ecological and sensitive historical renovations include period ironmongery, period organic lime plaster works, bespoke lime washes, beeswax finishes, natural sheep wool thermal and acoustic insulation and warm Fife burr elm throughout.
South Kinaldy House sits in an attractive, rural location surrounded by farm and woodland but is close to the historic town of St Andrews.
St Andrews is located on the east coast of Fife. It has a wide variety of shops, hotels, restaurants, and recreational and cultural facilities. To the south, the East Neuk of Fife stretches along a spectacular coastline which boasts fishing villages built around picturesque harbours and sandy unspoilt beaches. To the north, the Tay Road Bridge provides easy access to Dundee, Angus and Aberdeen.
Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve with its long stretches of beach and forest trails are ideal for walking, cycling or horse riding. The area also has a great variety of water sports clubs for all levels
of expertise including surfing, sailing, rowing and canoeing.
St Andrews is renowned worldwide as the Home of Golf. The Old Course is a regular host to the Open Championship. There are now six further golf courses run by the St Andrews Links Trust, in addition to the many other golf courses in the area including the Dukes Course, two courses at Fairmount, St Andrews Bay and Kingsbarns.
The town is also well known for its university which was Scotlands first university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world, founded in 1413. For over six centuries it has established a reputation as one of Europes leading and most distinctive centres for teaching and research. The town provides good state schooling at Madras College and private schooling at St Leonards, and The High School of Dundee is also within easy reach.
Access by rail, road and air is good. Leuchars railway station is on the main Aberdeen to London line and provides a fast link to Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport, with its increasingly wide range of domestic and international flights, is only 44 miles away and Dundee Airport has regular services to London Stansted. There is a dual carriageway and motorway connection to Edinburgh from Kirkcaldy or an alternative route is via Cupar on the A91 to join the M90 at Junction 8.
