Property Details

A fantastic development opportunity in the quiet heart of the popular village of Kingskettle. The property provides a fully designed development opportunity. The building known as the Linen Hall dates from the mid 1700s as indicated from historical records and as evidenced from a lintel stone dated 1747 over an original doorway. The building’s most recent uses were as a two room cottage at the eastern end and a community hall at the western end. Historically the building was used by the women of the village in the 1700s for creating items made from linen that would itself have been woven by the villagers of Kingskettle on their cottage handlooms. Sometime around 1800 one end of the building was adapted as a cottage with a new stone frontage, new stone window surrounds and front door. Plans have been drawn up with active Planning Consent (15/03510/FULL) for conversion of the building to form a four bedroom house on two floors. Certified structural design drawings are also available prepared by Dryburgh Associates, Consulting &Structural Engineers.




Location
The attractive village of Kingskettle lies close to the A914 on the east end of the area known as the Howe of Fife - that includes the historic settlement of Falkland to the South close to the Lomond Hills, the town of Auchtermuchty on the North and the old county town of Cupar to the North East. Kingskettle has an excellent primary school, village shop, village inn, church and village hall with Bell Baxter Secondary school in Cupar. Excellent shopping is easily reached nearby in Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy, Cupar and St Andrews. The village is well serviced on major bus routes between Dundee, St Andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow, and the nearby village of Ladybank (2 miles) has excellent commuting links with its railway station on the Edinburgh to Dundee/ Aberdeen main line and branch to Perth and Inverness.


Further Potential
Further Details

The walls and stonework are generally in excellent condition. The internal linings of the building have been largely removed to facilitate the detailed work of the architects and Structural Design engineers. The site has prepared connection to sewer and drainage, mains water to the property, adjacent gas and previous electric connection. Although the approved plans are for conversion to a four bedroom property, it would be entirely possible to make a single storey one/ two bedroom cottage conversion using the existing building footprint without the proposed side extension.
