Features & Description
With wonderful sea views and an elevated location in picturesque Anstruther, this outstanding, three-bedroom coastal home is formed over two floors of a handsome stone-built house, formerly known as Balmuir and a former police station.
A successful holiday rental property, the stylish renovation enjoys a south- facing private terrace and boasts contemporary interiors completed to a high specification, and impressive attention to detail throughout.
Inside, a bright entrance porch leads directly into the dual-aspect living space. Enjoying understated décor and timber-effect flooring, this reception room is further enhanced by tasteful presentation, displaying a subtle nod to the home's coastal location. The striking centre piece is a modern fireplace, framed by glossy black marble and a rustic oak surround. Next door, the master bedroom continues the charming nautical palette and sleek flooring of the living space, offering ample room for freestanding furnishings. Completing the accommodation on this floor is a deluxe shower room set against a backdrop of marble-effect, aqua-panelling and stylish floor tiles. Framed by a glass balustrade, a staircase winds down to the lower ground floor and a hallway, leading to the remaining accommodation. Openly accessed, a kitchen provides space for a large dining table and chairs, and extends onto the south-facing garden. The cooking zone is well-appointed with light, wood-styled cabinetry and a sweep of downlit, granite- inspired worktops, neatly accommodating an integrated raised double oven, a ceramic hob, and an overhead extractor hood, as well as a freestanding fridge/ freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer. Also leading off the hall, the two remaining double bedrooms enjoy the impeccable presentation prominent throughout, with one also providing built-in storage. Gas central heating and double glazing are found throughout.
Externally, a private terrace is laid with low-maintenance AstroTurf, bordered by timber bench seating and framed by colourful planting. This delightful, south- facing space provides a tranquil outdoor area for relaxation and dining. On-street parking in the area is conveniently unrestricted.
