Milton Villa is a detached 19th-century villa located in the picturesque fishing village of Pittenweem.
Enjoying an impressive approach, set behind a south-facing garden with a sweeping driveway, Milton Villa is a detached 19th-century villa located in the picturesque fishing village of Pittenweem, in its conservation area.
The C-Listed Georgian villa offers over 4000 square feet of bright, generously-proportioned accommodation, including five bedrooms, two kitchens, a vast open-plan living area, and a detached single garage. The substantial property, partially converted to a church in 1935, promises an exciting opportunity to develop and create a unique family home or potential hospitality business in one of the East Neuk's most desirable seaside locations.
The home is entered via the original arched church door into a practical vestibule. From here you step into the main reception area, south-facing and occupying over 900 square feet of versatile, open-plan living and dining space.
The convivial dual-aspect room retains its classic cornice and features an intimate corner sitting area and two useful store cupboards. The living area leads into a large breakfasting room, via an internal hall with a handy WC and further incorporated storage.
The breakfasting room affords access to numerous storage cupboards and, conveniently, the kitchen. The kitchen benefits from a good selection of fitted cabinets, ample workspace, an integrated oven and hob, a walk-in pantry, and external rear access. On the first floor, a bright and spacious landing (with built-in storage) leads to five double bedrooms and a multiple-purpose storeroom. Two of the bedrooms are south-facing and three of the rooms are supplemented by incorporated storage. All bedrooms retain their elegant cornicing, whilst feature fireplaces can also be found in two rooms, including a dual- aspect room currently set up as a sitting area with a gas fire.
The first-floor accommodation is completed by the second kitchen and a large bathroom with a WC-suite and a shower-over-bath.
Benefiting from dual-aspect windows and pastoral views, the kitchen is fitted around a dining area and equipped with cabinet storage, workspace, an integrated dishwasher, electric oven, and hob. The property benefits from gas central heating.
Externally, the villa is complemented by a south- facing lawned garden to the front and sides, sheltered by leafy mature trees, and a further rear garden. The long driveway, flanked by gate piers and a gatehouse (in need of restoration) and detached single garage (in need of restoration) provide parking for multiple vehicles.
Nestled in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife, the charming fishing village of Pittenweem is steeped in local history and has a working harbour that dates back to 1600. The village itself is home to everyday amenities including grocery shops, galleries and craft shops, a bakery, post office, doctors surgery, hairdressers, cafes, a restaurant, 2 pubs and a fish and chip shop. Pittenweem is an extremely popular tourist destination, and it's easy to see why; the village's location, hugged by rugged coastline and open countryside, gives ready access to scenic walking (including the Fife Coastal Path), running and cycling routes. In addition, the village hosts the Annual Pittenweem Arts Festival exhibiting the works of local and visiting artists, many of whom are inspired by Pittenweem's glorious coastal scenery and historic architecture. The pretty historic harbour villages of Crail and St Monans are nearby, whilst the beautiful Elie beach (with extensive watersport amenities), as well as Elie tennis and golf clubs, are just a short drive away.Read more
