The sought-after connected villages of Elie and Earlsferry in the East Neuk are popular holiday destinations and offer stunning unspoilt sandy beaches, excellent golf courses and a variety of water sports.  Situated on the iconic Elie High Street, close to the beach, The Coach House is ideally positioned for access to all amenities including the golf courses, tennis club and all the shops, cafés and restaurants of the village. The East Neuk of Fife is famed for its picturesque fishing villages, popular long distance coastal path and some beautiful beaches, with Elie and Earlsferry boasting some of the finest.  Sailing, wind surfing and other water sports are available at Elie Harbour and there are two golf courses.  The villages also have golf practice facilities, tennis courts and a bowling green, with Elie Sports Club offering group and individual coaching in golf and tennis during school holidays. The area is well served by some highly rated pubs and cafés, including the renowned Ship Inn in Elie and the historic 19th Hole Tavern and Restaurant in Earlsferry. The nearby Kinneuchar Inn also has an excellent reputation whilst the monthly Bowhouse market is a very popular event.  St Andrews, the world renowned ‘Home of Golf' and host to the recent 150th anniversary of The Open, and also the setting for one of Britain's oldest universities, is about 13 miles to the north, whilst approximately 14 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.  The beautiful Fife countryside around Elie comprises 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 offers 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 renowned courses at Elie itself, Dumbarnie, Crail, Kingsbarns, St Andrews Bay, Leven, Lundin Links and the numerous fine courses in and around St Andrews. In terms of days out there are several popular National Trust for Scotland properties close by, notably Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace.  There are railway stations at Cupar, Ladybank, Markinch and Kirkcaldy, with Dundee and Edinburgh airports within easy reach.


Thought to date from circa 1830 and category B listed, The Coach House is a superb 3 bed property which has recently been comprehensively upgraded, remodelled and improved by the current owner - with spectacular results. With a lovely painted harled exterior under a slate roof, the immaculately presented contemporary accommodation is deceptively spacious and utterly delightful, with beautiful interiors by Grace & Tiggy. At the heart of the house is the fantastic open plan ground floor kitchen / dining room / sitting room, very well appointed and bright, and with double doors leading out to the garden at the eastern end of the house. Also at ground floor level is a lovely well-proportioned double bedroom and immaculate Jack and Jill shower room, along with the main hall and utility room. There are two charming double bedrooms at first floor level, with the exquisite family bathroom and upper hall completing the delightful accommodation.      


To the back and side of the house is a charming, sheltered enclosed walled garden with lovely terrace and an attractive mix of plants and shrubs.


There is also ample private driveway parking.
