A charming extended stone-built cottage situated on a substantial plot. This property offers a rare opportunity to create your dream home in one of Fife's most sought-after locations, just a stone's throw from the historic town of St. Andrews. 

Nestled in the picturesque village of Strathkinness, just a stone's throw away from the historic town of St. Andrews sits Rose Cottage; a charming 2-bedroom extended stone-built cottage with 2 attic rooms. This property offers a rare opportunity to create your dream home in one of Fife's most sought-after locations. Situated on a substantial plot with a detached garage, and space for two cars in the driveway. Rose Cottage offers endless possibilities to design a bespoke living space in a highly desirable location. 

This traditional cottage boasts well-proportioned living accommodation, with a spacious lounge, kitchen, bathroom, two well-proportioned bedrooms, and a converted loft with two multi-purpose spaces, providing comfortable living spaces that can be customised to suit your lifestyle. A detached garage and good-sized shed provides secure storage for your vehicles, tools, and outdoor equipment, and driveway parking for two cars ensures convenient access for you and your guests.  

There are multiple options with this property due to the size and position of this wonderfully-appointed, generous corner plot. There is ample space to extend, with the potential to create a much larger home (subject to obtaining the relevant planning permissions). The substantial garden has been beautifully landscaped to the rear, creating a stunning outdoor space, and due to the size of the plot, you’d have plenty of space to keep a generous garden, even after extending the existing building.  There is also potential to build a garden studio or additional accommodation, subject to relevant permissions. 

This property presents an incredible and unique opportunity to bring your ideas to life and design a home that perfectly suits your needs and style, adding further value and versatility. Gas Central Heating, Double Glazing (all besides one window have been replaced within the last three years).
