RAISE THE ROOF: Rose Cottage is for sale at offers over £300,000.

Thatched roofs invariably top the kind of chocolate-box property that elicits an ‘ahh!’ response – and Rose Cottage in the Fife village of Collessie is no exception.

Pretty as they come, this B-listed property has an abundance of space inside, comprising open-plan living/dining room (with wood-burner), fitted breakfasting kitchen, two double bedrooms and large bathroom.

Outside, while there are indeed roses on display in the neat front garden, at the rear is an unexpectedly expansive garden with lawns and a paved patio, in addition to the cottage’s side driveway and detached double garage.

The original small-glazed window panes incorporate professionally installed secondary glazing and another historic feature is a sundial positioned on the edge of the roof, which is believed to date back to 1700.

Rose Cottage is for sale with Rollos in Auchtermuchty at offers over £300,000.
