    Carphin House, Fife


    Sitting above the hamlet of Luthrie, Carphin House dates back to the 1790’s and enjoys an elevated position surrounded by open countryside. The house has been lovingly renovated to provide a magnificent contemporary family home, whilst retaining much of the original charm and character including the impressive marble fireplaces and cornicing in the reception rooms.

    The house is constructed of largely white painted rendered stone over three levels and extends to about 675 sqm (7,266 sqft). The property is approached from the south by a pedimented porch with tripartite fanlight doorway with coat of arms above. The ground floor comprises a central hallway with doors off to the dining room and sitting room, which connects through to a drawing room with a deep bay window. The large family kitchen has an AGA plus twin gas oven and hob. There are a good range of fitted floor and wall units with granite worktops and is equipped to professional standards with ample space for day to day family dining. A sunroom leads out from the kitchen to the lovely grounds with a long rear corridor leading off to various stores, shower room and TV room/study. The principle bedroom accommodation on the first floor comprises five spacious bedrooms (4 en-suite) and a family bathroom. The second floor offers four further en-suite bedrooms.

    The Stables
    The Stables has been recently converted to a luxurious 5-bedroom house with views out across farmland.With 3 ensuite rooms and two reception rooms it provides spacious, flexible accommodation and has been finished to an incredibly high standard.The property sits in a tranquil private position overlooking the doocot and would serve well as a let property or could provide ancillary accommodation. The property lies within walking distance of the main house and sits opposite the stone garages which are ripe for development.

    Gardens & Grounds
    Carphin House is approached by an impressive gated entrance with railed quadrant wing walls which leads up a long tarmac drive to a gravelled parking area with balustrade looking out over an area of meadow and exceptional Fife countryside. The garden to the north-east is largely laid to lawn and interspersed by mature trees and shrubs and gravel pathways. It is partially bounded by a high stone wall creating a walled garden within which sits the former greenhouse which is served by electricity and is currently used as an alfresco dining space. A short stroll from the walled garden lies the one-bedroom log cabin which enjoys a private position within a wooded enclave. The cabin has all modern conveniences and is often used to accommodate additional guests.

    The driveway leads from the entrance gates round to the rear of the house to a further generous parking area, which leads off to a courtyard and off on towards the Stables and garage. An external stairway leads up to a studio currently used as a beauty salon to compliment the wedding venue.

    A track continues on from the parking area to the woodland cabin, Stables House and large garage. The garage is largely built of rendered walls under a pitched rosemary tiled roof and could be easily converted to offices or annexe accommodation if required (subject to consents). On the other side of the track is the newly converted Stable block which is constructed of stone under a pitched slate roof. The track then continues up to Carphin Farmhouse and onto a shared track which leads back through bluebell woods to the entrance gates of Carphin House and back to Luthrie.To the south of the house lies an area of woodland and access to a shared track to the south.

    Exclusive Use Holiday Let
    The property is currently let as a very successful exclusive use holiday let. The property lends itself well to providing guest accommodation with its generously sized receptions rooms, grand dining room and en-suite bedrooms. The inclusion of the Log Cabin and Stables cater for larger parties and the grounds offer a host of opportunities for outside dining or celebrations.
