Situation 

Tullis House is attractively situated in a prime residential area close to the heart of Fife’s golfing mecca of St. Andrews, not far from the town’s West Port and just minutes from the thriving shopping district which includes South Street, Market Street, Bell Street and North Street. The ancient and historic university town offers residents a superb mix of amenities and facilities and is renowned worldwide as the “Home of Golf”. The city of Dundee is some thirteen miles to the north with Edinburgh just over an hour to the south. Fife’s pretty East Neuk is easily accessible from St. Andrews with its quaint picturesque fishing villages such as Anstruther, Pittenweem and Elie, as well as its charming and varied coast line. Fife’s bustling county market town of Cupar is about fifteen minutes drive to the west. Surrounding St. Andrews is some particularly fine countryside and coastline with a lovely mix of farmland, woodland, river and hill ground. The result is home to an array of wildlife and provides an excellent choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including the Old Course at St. Andrews and the Championship Course at Carnoustie, both of which regularly host the British Open. The 150th anniversary British Open returns to St Andrews in the summer of 2022. In terms of days out there are a number of good sandy beaches in the area including those at St. Andrews itself as well as Tentsmuir, Kingsbarns, Crail and Elie. There are several popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. State schooling is available locally with the new Madras school building due to open in late 2021. Independent schooling is provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Dundee with Edinburgh airport just over one hour from the property.
