Taeping Cottage, 26 Shore Street, Cellardyke, Anstruther KY10 3BD
Taeping Cottage is a charming traditional fisherman's cottage close to Cellardyke harbour. The property benefits from a large terraced garden with spectacular rooftop sea views from the uppermost level.
A blue plaque on the front of the house identifies it as the birthplace of Captain Alexander Rodger, master and owner of China tea clippers including Lahloo, Carnie and Taeping, the last giving its name not only to this house but also a street in the area.
The entrance vestibule leads on the right hand side to the living room with fireplace and a deep recess which could be a useful home office area. To the left there is a double bedroom. The spacious dining kitchen features quarry style floor tiles which contrast nicely with the white units. The gas hob, electric oven and washing machine are all to be included in the sale price. The first floor has two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The bedrooms have attractive bow windows. From one you get a glimpse of the sea and from the other, you can get views of the harbour. The property benefits from gas central heating.
A lower courtyard leads up some stone steps to a terraced garden. This productive space has flowers, grass, a greenhouse, shed and spectacular sea views from the uppermost terrace. Cellardyke, situated to the East of Anstruther, is one of the most historic and picturesque areas in the East Neuk of Fife with typical pan tiled roofs and crow stepped gabled buildings. The harbour was once home to the thriving fishing industry and the name evolved 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.
