You couldn’t get closer to the sea in Fife without actually being in it!
Sporting an outside terrace right on the sea wall and the living room offering un-obstructed views through a wall of glass, Sharps Close 2 is one the most prized properties on the Cellardyke shoreline. With the master bedroom behind a pair of double doors, if he/she so wishes, the guest is able to lie in bed and take in the floor-to-ceiling view right across the Forth to East Lothian.

“This property is professionally deep cleaned after every stay, and we’re taking extra care to disinfect high touch areas between stays and provide a selection of recommended cleaning products for guests’ use.”

Sharps Close takes its name from the small alleyway that leads down to the cottage, which used to house workers for the nearby Sharpe and Murray oilskin works. The owners have renovated this 19th century cottage to an extremely high standard, as it is their intention to retire here themselves.
Entrance from the close leads into a hallway and on to an open-plan modern kitchen/diner, with all amenities, including TV, smart speakers etc.. As the owner fancies himself as a bit-of-a-chef, the kitchen is laid out for those who enjoy cooking but is equally suited for munching on a takeaway or rustling up a quick bite. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom with two windows to the close and a family bathroom, with shower over. A recent extension now houses a further twin bedroom on this floor, accessed through an archway from the kitchen. There is also a utility room in this area.
A modern oak staircase leads to a large bright sitting-room with beautiful unobstructed views to the Forth Estuary and North Sea, including the Isle of May and Bass Rock. Recent works have removed the complete gable-end and replaced it with a wall of glass, extending the sitting-room further out towards the sea, thus creating an additional seating area to take in the view. The window opens to a fabulously private terraced area surrounded by a glass balustrade, where you can sit and enjoy the views onto the beach.
With the waves crashing to the beach just a few feet below, this is an ideal place to relax and enjoy the view of seals, seabirds (including numerous Curlew) and occasional dolphins, in all weathers. A host of brightly coloured boats usually adorn the nearby vista also. (Additional photos of the recently completed works will be available shortly.)
Double doors lead to the master suite which, when left open give stunning sea views right from the bed. A stylish en-suite shower room completes this cosy yet airy and bright house. Original oil and watercolour seascapes adorn most of the walls to add the holiday atmosphere. The house is fully double glazed, extremely well insulated and heated with simple to use gas central heating.
Outside, just a few yards away, the house has its own safe rocky and pebbled beach, ideal for kids to play while being watched from the window. In summer, a dip in the sea is enjoyably refreshing although not for the faint hearted! Lobsters, Cod and many other fish are regularly caught off the 'Rock' outside the window. The beach is also dog-friendly, and is cordoned off at both ends when the tide is in.
If East Neuk is one of life's forgotten corners of the UK, then the lovely fishing villages of Anstruther and Cellardyke are the jewels in its crown. Packed with cosy pubs and a variety of cafes and restaurants, including one Michelin-starred restaurant, and not forgetting its world-famous fish and chip shops. The narrow streets also offer boutiques and galleries for those just wishing to enjoy a few days in a relaxing way. There is a supermarket plus two convenience stores, a great butcher on the harbour plus a country-renowned artisan baker.
Boat trips run from Anstruther harbour to the Isle of May, St Andrews is just 9 miles away and all along the coast are pretty harbour towns and some beautiful beaches. East Neuk is also blessed with fabulous golf courses to suit all levels and wallets.
