About this property

  • Garden Cottage sits in a peaceful setting, just a short distance from the shops and harbour front, and surrounded by beautifully kept gardens, with lovely views of the sea. The house was built in 2004. It was designed in a traditional style by Jack Fisher Partnership architects in St Andrews, and is of timber frame construction with a characterful stone façade. It has been finished to a high standard with features including oak flooring, Pilkington K Glass glazing, and quality appliances including an AGA.

    The principal living accommodation is on the ground floor. The kitchen overlooks the front garden and has a range of fitted painted cabinets with a wooden worktop, a double Belfast sink, four oven AGA, an integrated fridge and plenty of space for a table and chairs.

The first floor has three further bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom with both a bath and a separate shower.
