Cottage for Sale in Ceres
2 Bedrooms, Offers Over £260,000
Bishop Cottage High Street, Ceres KY15 5NF
Features & Description
Rare opportunity to purchase a picturesque two bedroomed, detached, stone built cottage in a conservation area in the desirable village of Ceres.
The cottage is situated above the pack horse Bishop's Bridge on the Fife Pilgrim Way. It is so called because it was regularly crossed by Archbishop Sharp on his journeys between St. Andrews from Edinburgh. There is an abundance of local parking over the bridge, and on the High Street itself. The cottage overlooks the Ceres Burn and is adjacent to the Fife Folk museum and coffee shop. Slightly farther away are several good shops, a 17th century pub, another hotel, and the famous Griselda Hill (Wemyss) pottery. The oldest Highland Games in Scotland is held on the village green nearby.
Ceres is seven miles from St. Andrews, and three miles from the market town of Cupar, which lies on the main Edinburgh/ Dundee/Aberdeen railway line.
The accommodation comprises: entrance hallway, lounge with gas living-flame fire, a large dining/kitchen with integrated appliances including electric oven, gas hob, fridge, dish-washer and washer-drier, all of which are included in the sale. There is a wall mounted recently renewed (2018) gas central heating boiler.
From the hallway the stair rises to a mezzanine floor, which is spacious and bright, and would be ideal as an office/study space. The stair then continues to the upper floor where there are two double bedrooms, both with windows to the front and rear of the cottage, and a spacious bathroom with a shower over the bath. There is a hatch providing access to the roof space. The property was completely renovated, to a very high standard, in 1999.
Externally, to the front, there is a plantar border, and a stone chipped driveway. There is a platform for bins, behind which is a timber shed, suitable for bicycles.
From the mezzanine floor a door leads to a porch giving access to a small, very private, tiered garden, with two flagstoned patio areas, providing views to the south and west. There is access to the garden from the street by a stairway at the side of the house.
