Description
Nestling on a hillside in the Fife countryside, this early 20th-century family home is a gem. The house was remodelled in 1906 by the Scottish architect Sir Robert Lorimer around Mr F B Sharp’s collection of French and Chippendale-style furniture, porcelain and paintings. A treat for collectors and antique lovers. Don’t miss the kitchen premises for a fascinating insight into ‘life below stairs’.

Lorimer also designed the gardens, with formal lawns, yew hedging, flowering borders and a sunken rose garden. The walled garden to the north contains sumptuous mixed borders and from here you can follow the paths to the hilltop viewpoint and the wider estate.

Acquisition details
Bequeathed in 1949 by Miss E C Sharp with 503ha of gardens, forest and farmland. Present holding 198ha
