About this property

  • Elie House Orangery consists of three sandstone built homes adjacent to Elie House on the site of a former chapel. The homes, which were completed in 2012, were built to the highest standard of specification, mixing classical style architecture with the best of understated contemporary design and technology. Large windows set between natural stone pillars allow a huge amount of natural light to stream into the house. 2 The Orangery has two dedicated parking spaces and additional visitors parking, a private garden to both front and rear and access to beautiful parkland which is home to an abundance of wildlife. The property offers private, countryside living, only 0.7 miles from the beach and The Ship Inn of Elie.

    A paved path leads up to the front door of 2 The Orangery where glazed double doors lead into the tiled vestibule. The central hallway has beautiful engineered and lacquered oak flooring, a feature throughout much of the ground floor and landing, and the kitchen opens up to the left. The bespoke kitchen has a range of Kitchens International Callerton painted base and wall units with integrated appliances and black granite work tops. Siemens appliances include a built in microwave, oven, fridge/ freezer, dishwasher and five burner gas hob with an extractor fan set in a mantel above.

The bedroom on the ground floor has a door to the guest shower room which can also be accessed from the hallway.

    An oak staircase with glass panels rises up to the galleried landing, where there is a large family / study area with built in oak book shelving.
