CLOSING DATE - 10.08.21 - 12 NOON - Fully modernised house in a breathtaking setting on Earlsferry Beach.
Thanks to its superb beachfront setting, The Old Bake House offers one of coastal Scotland's most spectacular and desirable outlooks, with picturesque and undisturbed views over Elie and Earlsferry beaches, and across the Firth of Forth towards East Lothian. The original Bake House which once supplied the local bakeries was built on this site in about the 1850s, and was re-built as a dwelling house in the late 1940s. The house has recently been fully re-designed, extended and renovated, led by architects Robin Hopkins and Gillespie & Scott, and was completed in 2020.
The property was fully rewired and re-plumbed throughout and sits under a pantile roof with new dormer window, and an extended and resurfaced balcony. The clever design has transformed the property, to offer contemporary and flexible accommodation, while ensuring that the views can be admired from almost every room in the house. The addition of the second floor dormer window and a first floor balcony provides a stunning elevated perspective of one of Scotland's most iconic beaches.
The ground floor accommodation is approached through a porch which has doors leading into both the spacious entrance hall which the current owners use as a dining area, and the sunroom. The sunroom has patio doors onto the south facing deck, and double glass doors into the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with range of units with integrated appliances including a Rangemaster double oven cooker with five burner gas hob, Bosch fridge freezer and Bosch dishwasher. A corridor off the back of the kitchen has a door into the garden, and leads to the utility room, where there is a pantry store and boiler / hot water tank cupboard. The ground floor sitting room could also be used as a bedroom. It has a door out into the rear garden, feature fireplace (non-functioning), characterful timber ceiling beams, and superb south facing views towards the beach. There is also a ground floor WC.
The spectacular first floor bedroom room has glazed doors leading onto the balcony overlooking the beach. This room would make for a superb sitting room if preferred, with the balcony offering a spacious entertaining area with modern glass balustrades to maximise the views. It has an en suite bathroom with separate shower adjacent. There is a large principal bedroom on this level with north and south facing windows, fitted wardrobes, and an en suite shower room.
A contemporary spiral staircase leads up to the second floor suite. The large bedroom on this level has a recently installed dormer window which provides breathtaking views from the highest level of the house. The bedroom on this level also has an en suite shower room, and fitted wardrobes.
Both front and rear gardens are fully walled. The re-landscaped front garden overlooks the beach and provides off street parking via a driveway which passes through the stone wall. The beautiful walled garden to the rear of the house is a private and peaceful space. It is largely laid to lawn with a mix of trees, plants and shrubs. The grounds of The Old Bake House continue beyond the front garden, down to the high water line of the beach.
