Rosemount is peacefully located in the small village of Kilrenny just to the north-east of Anstruther and next to Cellardyke, in the scenic East Neuk of Fife. Anstruther is the largest of the chain of pretty villages dotted along this beautiful part of Scotland and there is an array of amenities to meet daily shopping and leisure needs including a Co-op, chemist, greengrocer, butcher, optometrist, and hairdresser. Additionally, there are bustling cafès, art galleries, boutiques, and gift shops to discover. For dining experiences from formal to casual, the multiple award-winning Anstruther Fish Bar sits alongside a variety of popular restaurants and bars such as The Waterfront, The Dreel Tavern, and The Bank. Primary school and high school education is catered for. Further retail, dining, and leisure options are available in the historic town of St Andrews, just under ten miles away. Renowned as the “home of golf” it is also home to the internationally recognised University of St Andrews. Kilrenny is within easy reach of neighbouring scenic fishing villages including Crail, St Monans, and Pittenweem. Dundee to the north is a forty-minute drive and Edinburgh is approx. 80 minutes by car or an hour by train from Leuchars. 

Located less than 15 minutes south-east of St Andrews, Anstruther set around a bustling harbour offers wonderful opportunities to explore this breathtaking part of the country. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and coastline there are a wide variety of outdoor attractions for all ages to enjoy. Experience adventure with Isle of May Boat Tours; try paddle boarding, archery, mountain biking and more at East Neuk Outdoors; visit the tidal pool at Cellardyke, or take in the Fife Coastal Path, perfect for cycling and walking.  Keen golf enthusiasts will be in their element with The Anstruther Golf Club. Established in 1890, it offers stunning views of the Isle of May and Anstruther Harbour. Other local clubs to discover include those at nearby Kingsbarns, Crail, and the world-famous Old Course at St Andrews. The village boasts its own tennis club with four all-weather courts. The Scottish Fisheries Museum along with Kellie Castle and Gardens, owned by The National Trust for Scotland, are well worth a visit. There are several attractive sandy beaches nearby including Billow Ness at Anstruther along with those at Elie and Earlsferry that are particularly popular in the height of summer. State schooling is provided locally at both primary and secondary school level. Private options are available at St Leonards in St Andrews and at The High School of Dundee. An efficient bus service connects Anstruther to towns throughout Fife, and there are railway stations at Leuchars, Ladybank, Kirkcaldy and Markinch. Edinburgh International Airport is approximately one hour and ten minutes away.

General Description


Characterised by an exceptionally generous layout, plentiful natural light and exquisite finishes, this five-bedroom detached property in a sought-after East Neuk village setting is the perfect family home. As you open the front door accessed from the driveway, you are welcomed into an inviting entrance vestibule leading to an expansive reception hall. Decorated in chic greys and whites complemented by handsome wooden flooring and ambient lighting, it sets a sophisticated tone for the rest of the property. From here you move seamlessly into a stunning dual-aspect dining kitchen. Wonderfully spacious this light-filled room features an L-shaped design that showcases wall and floor units in contrasting greys and natural tones, smooth grey worktops, and a focal range cooker with an extractor hood. So sizeable is the footprint that part of the room accommodates a cosy seating area. A seamless flow then leads you to a most impressive living room with an adjoining dining room, perfect for family life and entertaining. Both enjoy plentiful natural light and a striking interior design including solid oak flooring. The living room with sliding patio doors leading to the garden showcases a living flame fireplace nestled beneath a timber mantle. Returning to the hallway, you move from the impressive living and reception areas to two comfortable and bright double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes. Each shares access to a modern shower room equipped with a WC and washbasin built into vanity. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a versatile study/home office/double bedroom and a practical utility room. Ascending the carpeted staircase from the hallway you reach the spacious landing that offers captivating countryside views and leads to three further double bedrooms. The light and airy dual-aspect principal double enjoys countryside and sea views over to the Bass Rock, built-in wardrobes, and a well-appointed en-suite shower room complete with solid oak flooring, a WC, towel radiator, and washbasin. Two remaining carpeted double bedrooms provide tranquil retreats; one overlooking the open countryside to the sea, and the other enjoying a delightful countryside aspect. They share access to a luxuriously appointed monochrome bathroom comprising a bath, shower enclosure, WC, and washbasin built into vanity.
