SEASIDE properties don’t come much better than Bosun’s Cottage in the picturesque harbour village of St Monans in the East Neuk of Fife.
But while this waterfront house has the traditional red pantiled roof and all the charm of a quaint cottage once lived in by a pipe-smoking, weather-beaten, real-life bosun, it was actually built in 2002.
Among its attractions are underfloor heating, beautifully presented accommodation over three floors, panoramic sea views, walled patio garden, integral garage and parking area.
Configured to make the most of the setting, the layout includes an open-plan kitchen/dining room on the ground floor, first floor sitting room with views towards the harbour, en-suite master bedroom, bathroom and bedroom two, with two further bedrooms (one en-suite) on the top floor.
Details from Pagan Osborne in Anstruther, which invites offers over £395,000.
