Minutes from Pittenweem Harbour, the Old Church House enjoys a wonderful  position in this idyllic East Neuk village. Along with the harbour, the property is only a short walk from an array of amenities including a bakery, chemist, doctor’s surgery, post office, hairdressers, and grocery stores. In addition, there are bustling cafès, pubs, and restaurants to discover including the Clock Tower Café, the Dory Bistro and Gallery, and the West End Bar. Art galleries, boutiques, and gift shops sit side by side giving you the chance to peruse prints, ceramics, paintings and more. Nearby Anstruther has an expansive Co-op Food along with an award-winning fish and chip shop. Primary school education is catered for and there is a high school in Anstruther. Further options for retail, dining, and leisure are available in the historic town of St Andrews, just under eleven miles away. Renowned as the “home of golf” it is also home to the internationally recognised University of St Andrews. Pittenweem is within easy reach of neighbouring scenic fishing villages including Anstruther, St Monans, and Crail. Dundee to the north is a forty-minute drive and Edinburgh is approx. 80 minutes by car or an hour by train from Leuchars. 

Centred around a working harbour embraced by several historic houses restored by The National Trust of Scotland, Pittenweem is a small and pretty fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife. Home to the renowned Pittenweem Arts Festival held every August that attracts visitors from across the UK and showcases local and visiting artists, there is much to do in the village and beyond. The Fife Coastal Path offers wonderful opportunities to explore this breathtaking part of the country either on foot or by bike with nearby villages including Anstruther and St Monans. The beautiful coastline means there are a wide variety of outdoor attractions for all ages to enjoy such as paddle boarding, wild swimming, and sailing or taking a dip in the tidal pool. Keen golf enthusiasts will be in their element with The Crail Golfing Society only a fifteen-minute drive. The 7th oldest club in the world, it is home to two courses, the Balcomie Links and Craighead Links, both of which offer stunning views of the Forth and Tay Estuaries. Other local clubs to discover include those at Lundin Links and Kingsbarns and of course the world-famous Old Course at St Andrews. Interesting buildings to visit in the village include Kellie Lodge, a late 16th century townhouse that was once the residence of the earls of Kellie, the parish church, and the ruins of the 12th century Augustinian priory. St Fillan’s Cave is now a shrine to the saint and can be found beneath the priory. Balcaskie House and Kellie Castle are also well worth a visit. There are several attractive sandy beaches nearby including those at Elie and Earlsferry that are particularly popular in the height of summer. State schooling is provided locally at the primary level with high school provision in Anstruther. Private options are available at St Leonards in St Andrews and at The High School of Dundee. An efficient bus service connects Pittenweem to towns throughout Fife, and there are railway stations at Leuchars, Ladybank, Kirkcaldy and Markinch. Edinburgh International Airport is approximately one hour and twenty minutes away.

General Description


This stunning church conversion showcases a masterful blend of historical charm and contemporary design. The transformation has been tastefully executed, preserving the architectural grandeur while introducing modern interiors that exude elegance and sophistication. Accessed by a ramped pathway the majestic façade with its natural stone and original arched windows blends perfectly with the coastal surroundings. Entering through the church doors you pass a stylish guest WC and platform lift access before double doors open into a truly spectacular and unique open dining/living/kitchen. Boasting an east and west-facing orientation this architecturally designed space features mezzanine levels at either end connected by a glazed walkway complete with clear panels. With arched windows, handsome wooden flooring, and a soaring ceiling providing a dramatic backdrop the interior décor is sleek and minimalist. Despite the sizeable footprint, ambient lighting, bespoke window seats and a wall-hung log-burning stove ensure the room remains warm and inviting. The contemporary kitchen with an arched grid window blends perfectly with grey wall and floor units, stone worktops and a full suite of high-spec integrated appliances including an induction hob, eye-level grill and oven. A feature kitchen island is ideal for informal dining. From the ground floor, a sweeping curved staircase with an acrylic finish and open risers takes you to the mezzanine level. Here you find two versatile living spaces, one currently utilised as a wonderfully bright and comfortable sitting room and the other a studio/gallery. Each carries on the décor of the ground floor and is centred around two magnificent original windows that bathe it and the whole level in an abundance of light. Returning to the ground floor, stairs take you to the lower-ground-level hallway decorated with wood panelling and flooring to evoke a coastal feeling. Three south-east-facing double bedrooms open to a breathtaking landscaped terrace with showstopping views of the Forth. Decorated in a relaxed soothing colour palette the principal boasts a magazine-worthy en-suite shower room finished in a chic monochrome colour scheme. Metro tiles provide a stunning backdrop to a hidden cistern WC and washbasin built into a marble-topped vanity. A second double bedroom showcases an additional jaw-dropping en-suite shower room meticulously designed to offer a spa-like experience. A generous utility and a well-appointed family bathroom finish off the layout. The latter features a chrome towel radiator, bath, WC, and washbasin against a backdrop of large porcelain tiles in a natural hue.


A beautifully finished terrace with sandstone paving and handcrafted ironwork evokes a Mediterranean charm, offering breathtaking views across the Forth. This expansive space allows for various seating areas and elegant alfresco dining. Steps lead down to a landscaped garden with established borders, flowering plants, and trees, creating an idyllic retreat that is both peaceful and private—a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
