With stunning coastal views and located on a prestigious historic street, 22 Nethergate South enjoys an enviable position in the sought-after conservation village of Crail. The vibrant high street of this former Royal Burgh offers an array of shops to meet daily needs including a Co-op, chemist, greengrocer, butcher, and hairdresser. Additionally, there is a beautiful historic parish church and popular cafès, art galleries, and pottery studios. The Category A Listed Golf Hotel complete with a restaurant and bar adds to the local amenities and the character of the village. Kingsbarns Distillery on the outskirts provides a lovely place to relax with a terrace and café. Primary school education is catered for and there is a high school in Anstruther. Further options for retail, dining, and leisure are available in the historic town of St Andrews, just under ten miles away. Renowned as the “home of golf” it is also home to the internationally recognised University of St Andrews. Crail is within easy reach of neighbouring scenic fishing villages including Anstruther, St Monans, and Pittenweem. Dundee to the north is a forty-minute drive and Edinburgh is approx. 90 minutes by car or an hour by train from Leuchars.

Crail stands as the most easterly village along the East Neuk of Fife and holds the distinction of being one of the earliest Royal Burghs of Scotland. Nestled along the picturesque Fife Coastal Path and famous for its harbour, it offers wonderful opportunities to explore this breathtaking part of the country. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and coastline there are a wide variety of outdoor attractions for all ages to enjoy. Experience adventure at East Neuk Outdoors where you can try paddle boarding, archery, mountain biking and more, or explore Lomond Hills Regional Park with 25 square miles of moorland, farmland, and lochs perfect for cycling, riding, and walking. Keen golf enthusiasts will be in their element with The Crail Golfing Society. The 7th oldest club in the world, it is home to two courses, the Balcomie Links and Craighead Links, both of which offer stunning views of the Forth and Tay Estuaries. Other local clubs to discover include those at nearby Kingsbarns and the world-famous Old Course at St Andrews. Kellie Castle and Gardens, owned by The National Trust for Scotland, is also well worth a visit and is a fine example of Victorian style and medieval stonework. There are several attractive sandy beaches nearby including those at Elie and Earlsferry that are particularly popular in the height of summer. State schooling is provided locally at the primary level with high school provision in Anstruther. Private options are available at St Leonards in St Andrews and at The High School of Dundee. An efficient bus service connects Crail to towns throughout Fife, and there are railway stations at Leuchars, Ladybank, Kirkcaldy and Markinch. Edinburgh International Airport is approximately one hour and twenty minutes away.

General Description
Proudly positioned on one of Crail’s most historic and coveted residential streets, 22 Nethergate South offers a rare opportunity to acquire a magnificent five-bedroom category B-listed Victorian townhouse arranged over three levels. Once the home of George Downie who built the neighbouring grand properties in this locale, this handsome residence lies behind a manicured hedge, with a pathway flanked by a neat lawn leading to the front door. Opening into a charming entrance vestibule and hallway decorated in soft neutrals, you are led to a magnificent living room where a sash and case bay window frames captivating views across the garden to the sea. Immaculately finished a tasteful interior design provides the backdrop to high ceilings, exquisite cornicing, wooden flooring, and a log-burning stove set into an original marble mantlepiece. The effect is one of sophisticated grandeur, yet the overall ambience is warm and inviting. A light and airy south-facing double bedroom complete with wooden flooring, an idyllic window seat and an original feature fireplace awaits on this floor along with an impressive bathroom featuring a roll-top bath, rainfall shower, a WC and washbasin. Across the hallway, the light-filled dining kitchen enjoys the same spectacular picture postcard coastal aspect and chic décor of the living room. A natural divide is created with two entrances and a thoughtful corner kitchen layout opens up the dining area. White metro tiles, a Belfast sink, and stone worktops provide a stunning contrast to the hand-painted bespoke base units and striking stainless steel oven and five-ring gas hob. With a built-in pantry and log-burning stove, it is a beautifully finished room that effortlessly achieves functionality with a refined modern style. From here, you descend to the basement level of the property. A true hidden gem this is the location of a light and airy farmhouse kitchen leading out through an original stable door to the spectacular garden. Butcher block worktops, a Belfast sink and a high-spec cooker are set against black flagstone flooring, whilst a cosy seating area is a perfect spot for informal dining. There is a convenient WC adjacent and a utility for additional storage. Returning to the ground floor a skylit staircase with an original carved mahogany banister takes you to a spacious carpeted first floor landing and four double bedrooms. The luxurious bay windowed principal double bedroom boasts a magazine-worthy interior design of plush carpeting, a calm colour palette, intricate cornicing, and a log-burning stove nestled under a white mantle. Its appeal as a serene retreat is amplified by its mesmerising garden and sea outlook. Each of the three additional double bedrooms are wonderfully presented and share access to a shower room finished in a classic style complete with a cast iron towel radiator, washbasin, and WC. This floor benefits from a versatile south-facing home office/study.

To the front the south-facing garden peacefully situated behind mature hedges provides a stunning entrance to the property.

The rear garden nestled between two manicured hedges for enhanced privacy is truly breathtaking. Two tranquil alfresco dining areas sit at either end of a lush lawn all offering captivating views of the sea. Whether for family celebrations, summer drinks, or evenings spent entertaining friends this garden is enchanting.

Featuring a private pend, offering convenient access to the garden without traversing through the house.

There is ample on-street parking.
