Delightful cottage in spectacular position overlooking Elie Beach with private terrace and garage

About this property

  • 8 The Toft is a charming, traditional mid-terraced cottage in one of the most enviable coastal addresses in Scotland. The property sits overlooking Elie beach, with spectacular, panoramic views across Elie bay, towards the harbour including Elie Granary, and beyond across the Firth of Forth.

    A rarely available, private terrace sits across the road from the cottage, directly overlooking the beach. Adjacent to the terrace is a single garage / store. This was once a fishermen's hut for the hanging of nets, and may offer the potential for conversion to a beachfront summerhouse, subject to the necessary consents.

    The front door to the house opens into the open plan kitchen / dining / sitting room. This stunning room has three beach-facing windows providing outstanding views across the bay. The kitchen area is fitted with units and a range of kitchen appliances. Plenty of character comes from features such as solid wood flooring, a shelved alcove and a log burner. There is a generous cupboard under the stairs, and an adjacent shower room with skylight overhead. The two double bedrooms on the first floor have breathtaking views over Elie Beach and across the Firth of Forth. Both are fitted with wash hand basins, and one has a fitted wardrobe.

    A hatch and Ramsay ladder provide access to the attic room above. This has exposed ceiling beams and a Velux window with beach views.
