Situation

Set back and tucked away down a quiet lane off Marketgate South, beautiful Charlotte Cottage is a delightful most charming B listed East Neuk property in a wonderfully peaceful and private secluded location within the sought after conservation village of Crail. The village provides a very good range of shops, services and amenities and from Crail there is easy access to the other villages of the East Neuk, including Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans, Cellardyke and Elie. The ancient historic cosmopolitan town of St Andrews is about a 20 minute drive to the north and offers an excellent range of facilities along with the highly regarded university. St Andrews is known worldwide as the “Home of Golf” with the 150th British Open having visited in July 2022. About 18 miles to the north-west is Cupar, Fife’s bustling county market town which also provides a good range of services. Dundee is within a 45 minute drive to the north with Edinburgh about an hour and 20 minutes to the south. Surrounding Crail is an area of outstanding Fife countryside comprising a lovely mix of fertile farmland, woodland, hill, stunning coastline and river. The result is home to an array of wildlife and for the outdoor enthusiast provides an area offering access to a wide range of recreational pursuits including riding, cycling, walking, sailing and golf. There are many highly rated golf courses within easy reach including the world-renowned courses at Crail itself, Kingsbarns, Dumbarnie, St Andrews Bay, Elie, Leven, Lundin Links and the numerous fine courses in and around St Andrews. The popular Fife coastal path runs through the village. Crail is well placed for accessing the various other pretty fishing villages of Fife’s quaint East Neuk whilst in terms of days out the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills are not far away along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties, notably Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. Fife’s beautiful and varied coastline includes several good sandy beaches such as those at Tentsmuir, Kingsbarns, Elie and St Andrews. State schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at St Leonards in St Andrews. There are railway stations at Cupar, Leuchars, Ladybank, Markinch and Kirkcaldy with Edinburgh airport less than an hour and 20 minutes to the south.

General Description

Constructed circa 1736, Category B listed and full of character, Charlotte Cottage is an exquisite stone house which offers charming, bright accommodation over two levels. With a wonderful exterior stone staircase, traditional pan tiled roof and lovely crow stepped gables, the front door is at first floor level, opening into a central hall off which there are two delightful well-proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom. The stairs then lead down to the deceptively spacious ground floor living space which is centred around the beautiful main sitting room with cosy stove and split pane glazed door through to the adjacent sunroom. This excellent bright space has a door out to the terrace and looks out right down the beautiful garden. Completing the accommodation on this level is the well-appointed kitchen, hall and wc.

Garden Studio

There is a wonderful modern garden studio at the bottom of the garden which offers considerable potential for additional living space, home working, guest accommodation and such like.

Garden

The beautiful, enclosed garden at Charlotte Cottage is an absolute delight, incorporating a wonderful mix of plants, trees and shrubs along with a lawn that runs down to the studio at the bottom of the garden. There is a lovely paved terrace immediately to the rear of the house, with further seating areas further down the garden and a timber garden shed.

Parking

There is ample parking in Marketgate South.
