    Property Description

    Offering an opportunity to live in a former gamekeepers cottage and run separate self-catering holiday accommodation in a beautiful countryside setting, this portfolio includes a four-bedroom main house, two charming one-bedroom log cabin apartments, and a stone-built bothy, within a traditional courtyard - located just a mile from the village of Ladybank.

    This truly unique opportunity offers a four-bedroom main house, two charming one-bedroom log cabin apartments and a one-bedroom bothy, with the opportunity to live and run holiday accommodation on the same site. Alternatively the outbuildings could be transformed to suit a variety of different uses, businesses and lifestyles. The main house is used as residential accommodation by the current owners, with the log cabin apartments and bothy being established holiday accommodation for over eighteen years. (further information can be found at www. redlandslodge.com).

    The properties are set on a generous plot surrounded by picturesque Fife countryside and just a short stroll from scenic woodland, whilst also being just a mile from Ladybank and approximately six miles from Cupar. The grounds include mature gardens with a music/ garden studio, two stables, greenhouse and large private courtyard with ample parking.

    A welcoming hallway with solid wood front door and solid oak flooring invites you into this country home. The hall has under-stair storage.

    The living room is a charming and characterful space, with exposed beams, solid wood flooring, chic navy-blue décor, and a warming multi-fuel stove. The room is illuminated by dual-aspect windows, the larger of which is enviably south-facing, whilst plenty of floorspace allows for various configurations of lounge furniture.

    The spacious conservatory/breakfast room - with solid oak flooring throughout - enjoys an open-plan layout leading to the kitchen and offers a particularly versatile footprint for a variety of furniture to suit a new owner. Currently set up as a sociable dining/family room, it has been previously used as a breakfast room for paying guests and also for yoga and art classes. The conservatory is filled with natural light with French doors opening onto the tree-filled garden with mature pond.

    The kitchen is well-equipped with a wide range of stylish, timeless cabinetry, including a large central island with a wealth of storage and a large solid wood worktop. Integrated appliances comprise a double oven, an induction hob, a larder fridge, and a dishwasher. The kitchen has exposed rafters with velux windows and feature floor to ceiling window with views to the surrounding countryside. A laundry/bootroom supplements the kitchen and houses additional cabinetry, workspace, eye-catching floor tiling, a handy clothes pulley, and space for appliances, as well as external access.

    The bedrooms are all on the first floor, approached via a staircase and landing with built-in storage. The dual-aspect principal bedroom is particularly spacious and supplemented by a large built-in wardrobe, whilst two of the remaining bedrooms are illuminated by skylight windows. The fourth bedroom is currently being utilised as a home office with stunning views over the surrounding countryside, highlighting the home’s versatility and ideal for those requiring a quiet space to work or study from home.

    The home has two well-appointed washrooms – a shower room on the ground-floor and a family bathroom on the first floor. The shower room comprises a large shower enclosure with a rainfall showerhead, a WC-suite set into a vanity unit, and shelved storage. The family bathroom is stylishly tiled and comes complete with a freestanding bathtub, a corner shower enclosure with a rainfall showerhead, a vanity unit with an inset basin, a WC, and a chrome towel radiator. The home is kept warm by an LPG-fired central heating system (with a Worcester combi boiler) and benefits from double-glazed windows throughout.

    The log cabins apartments are set up as self catering accommodation. Made from solid logs each spacious apartment has it’s own private entrance, open plan kitchen, living and dining area with adjoining double bedroom and en-suite shower room. An additional bedroom with en-suite facilities can also be utilised. Each apartment has it’s own private outdoor hot tub and patio area.

    The lodges form part of an established holiday letting business appealing to the short break holiday market also ideally situated for business travellers. Currently advertised on Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia and a bespoke, comprehensive website with integrated booking system. Redlands Country Lodge can also be found on Instagram and Facebook.

    The lodges are also heated via the LPG heating, with individual Hive thermostats, and have double-glazed windows.

    The charming, stone-built bothy is also currently utilised as holiday accommodation. It includes a bright and spacious open-plan kitchen (with modern cabinetry, fixtures and fittings), living and dining room with French doors opening onto a private garden area, as well as a double bedroom, and a bathroom comprising a bath with an overhead shower and a glazed screen, and a WC-suite. The Bothy also offers alternative use as separate accommodation for live-in relatives or older children looking for more independence. The Bothy’s heating system is also fed by LPG and the windows are double glazed.

    Externally, the house is surrounded by mature and generous gardens, with a large, predominantly lawned area outside the conservatory with established leafy trees and shrubbery and a garden room/music studio. The main courtyard area and driveway is laid with low- maintenance gravel offering parking for multiple vehicles.
