Merchants House is a superb opportunity to purchase a newly formed property developed from the recently divided historical 17th century The White House. It is an elegant property with a whole host of charismatic features and previously a focus of the National Trust's designated improvement scheme.
It is positioned on the waterfront in Anstruther, in a quiet location on the Esplanade behind Dreel Halls, looking across the water to the harbour and bustling shops. Anstruther is the largest of the string of beautiful fishing villages along the coast of the East Neuk of Fife. It is well situated for easy access to larger centres including the university town of St Andrews, Cupar, Kirkcaldy, and is less than 50 miles from Edinburgh.
The newly formed house will be a traditional end-terraced property with architectural features common to the locale. Care will be taken to retain the many fine and interesting features of the property such as the three original Adam fireplace's. As the property is currently under development, if a purchaser were to make themselves known at an early enough stage, there would be an opportunity to have some input into the decoration and presentation of the property.
The accommodation will comprise: on ground floor the kitchen/family room, the dining hall, the utility and store cupboards, and on first floor; bedroom one, with en-suite shower room with Jack and Jill access from the landing and the sitting room, and on the second floor; bedrooms two and three and the family bathroom.
The house enjoys views to the south, over the sea to the East Lothian coastline from bedrooms one and three, and additional views towards the bustling heart of Anstruther and the harbour from the lounge and bedroom two.
Merchants house will have an area of garden to the south providing an ideal sheltered suntrap for al fresco dining etc. Additionally, to the front, it will have an area of ground across the road which is currently laid with grass and bushes but could be used as a private parking space. The house is situated almost immediately next to a public carpark and so free parking here is abundant.
Properties of this type in such a situation are rarely seen on the market and an early viewing is recommended.
