Terraced House for Sale in Anstruther
2 Bedrooms | Offers Over £315,000
Fisher Cottage 39 George Street, Cellardyke, Anstruther KY10 3AS
Cellardyke, situated to the east of Anstruther, is one of the most historic and picturesque areas in Fife/the East Neuk, with typical pantiled roofs and crow stepped gabled buildings.
The harbour was once home to the thriving fishing industry and the name evolves from silver dykes' referring to fish scales glinting. Local amenities include the handsome Town Hall, two pubs/restaurants, home bakery and a corner shop. The coastal walk is on the doorstep running east to Crail and west to Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans and Elie.
Commanding spectacular sea views of the Fife coast in the picturesque and historic fishing village of Cellardyke, this enchanting, two-bedroom fisherman's terraced cottage exudes period charm and offers cosy yet spacious living across three floors.
Situated on the shore of the Firth with views towards the Isle of May, the property includes a master bedroom with a balcony and an en-suite, a sunny, south-facing modern conservatory, and a beautiful garden with three separate patio areas and private access to the beach. With the University town of St Andrews only 9 miles away, this house would serve perfectly as a base for commuters, a coastal family home, or a seaside holiday retreat.
Entering the property from the street at first-floor level, one is immediately drawn down the main staircase into a sunny, open plan living/kitchen area. Tastefully painted in white, with sympathetically exposed ceiling beams, an inglenook fireplace (which now houses a modern log burner), a floor-to-ceiling, south-facing window, and French doors leading to the adjoining conservatory, this space manages to feel simultaneously bright and cosy. The décor of the conservatory, with its warm carpets, exposed stonework, and whitewashed walls, offers a delightful space for dining and relaxing while taking in the stunning views of the sea through modern, double- glazed windows. Located at the rear of the ground floor, the kitchen is fitted with modern cream cabinets and accommodates an integrated oven with induction hob, an eye-level microwave oven, and a washing machine.
The sleeping accommodation of the cottage is provided on the first and second floors. Situated at the top of cottage, the delightful master bedroom boasts not only a three-piece en-suite with shower, sink basin, and WC, but also (accessed through south-facing French doors) a roof balcony that enjoys breath-taking views of the coast. On the first floor, meanwhile, sits a generous double bedroom with a recessed storage area and a south-facing window overlooking the sea. Adjacent to this room, and completing the internal accommodation on offer, is the family bathroom, which comes with a 3-piece suite consisting of a bath with overhead shower, a sink basin, and a WC, as well as a useful built-in cupboard.
Externally, while the traditional stonework on display at the front of the property exerts considerable kerb appeal, to the rear, the south-facing courtyard garden has been thoughtfully zoned to create three unique spaces for entertaining and relaxing: the first, accessed via the French doors of the conservatory, consists of a paved patio area that is perfect for reading and sun-lounging; a second, paved with bricks, is currently used for al fresco dining; finally, at the end of the garden and immediately overlooking the sea, is a delightful decked patio area: just the spot to enjoy coffee or cocktails after a leisurely walk along the beach, access to which is provided by a private side-gate.
