With a courtyard area that looks directly out over the sea and onto the rocky coastline, the views and location of this five bedroom home in the East Neuk of Fife are certainly idyllic.


Aberforth has a vantage point over the charming fishing village of Pittenweem, with many rooms in the house offering picturesque views.

The building dates from the late 19th century and is set at the end of a row of cottages on a winding road that leads down to the lovely Pittenweem harbour. The property itself extends over three floors and has been renovated to a high standard.

The ground floor, where you enter the property, features two double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a third double bedroom which is currently being used as a study. This floor also features the large family bathroom with roll top bath and a separate shower. There is a utility room and two hall cupboards, and the back door leads out to the garden.

The timber staircase takes you to the first floor landing where the public rooms are located and where there are double windows that look out onto the front of the house. The wonderful, modern open-plan dining kitchen has beech flooring, feature fireplace and stunning views and the living room has a dual aspect with sea views and a door that opens out onto a small balcony.


On the top floor of the property are two spacious bedrooms with bow windows to the front and Velux windows giving elevated panoramic sea views toward The May Isle, Bass Rock and Berwick Law.  There is also a contemporary shower room.

The south facing courtyard garden is where you can enjoy your morning coffee taking in the sea air and views, and it also has a charming old pan-tiled outbuilding which could be an artist’s studio. The spacious side drive offers provides off street parking for several vehicles

Pittenweem, with its archetypal pan-tiled rooftops and crow-stepped gables, is also home to the now famous arts festivals and has excellent local amenities including shops, village store, cafes, galleries, school and Doctors' surgery. The historic university town of St Andrews is ten miles away.
