Fancy staying in a converted town chambers next time you are in Fife?

A major refurbishment project has just been completed to turn Cupar Burgh Chambers into a two-bedroom holiday let accommodation.

The £500,000 of work was carried out by Hardies Property and Construction Consultants.

Part of the Cupar CARS (Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme), the project comprised major fabric repairs to the building, including replacement stone, slate roofs, lead covered bell tower and paint removal from the façade.

Gary Ovenstone, partner at Hardies, said: “This ten-month project involved the conversion from previous use of council offices and chamber room to a two-bedroom holiday let with en-suite bathrooms and a kitchen/living area.

“The project brings the formerly disused Grade B building back into the public domain and removes it from the Buildings at Risk register.”

The refurbishment project was part-funded by Historic Environment Scotland and Heritage Lottery Fund through Fife Historic Buildings Trust (FHBT). The main contractor was John Smart & Son with Hardies acting as quantity surveyor.
