Chapel Green House is peacefully situated between the Golf Course and the rocky shoreline of Kincraig Point where the ruins of the ancient chapel give the house its name. From the house there are superb walks along the shore and cliffs, with their diversity of coastal flora and bird life. Seals and eider duck may often be seen enjoying the bay in front of the house.

The property is within walking distance of the Royal Burgh of Elie, still remarkably unspoilt and offering good local shopping and other facilities. The house looks out over Elie beach and across the bay to Elie Harbour on the far side. The views also extend over the Firth of Forth to the Bass Rock and Berwick Law beyond.

The long, deep stretch of golden sand that is Blue Flag Elie Beach is one of the finest and safest beaches in Scotland. The harbour serves as a centre for a sailing club and various water sport activities. The Ship Inn overlooking the harbour and the Nineteenth Hole in Earlsferry are popular pubs with excellent menus. There are several good restaurants within easy reach of Elie.

The Golf House Club Elie, with its acclaimed 18-hole course is another attraction of the village. Alongside is Elie Sports Club and Pavilion along with a short nine hole course, driving range, putting green and five tennis courts with short tennis courts for younger children. St Andrews, 'the home of golf', is only 13 miles away. There are many other golf courses in the area including Kingsbarns, Crail and Lundin Links.

The property is away from the hubbub of the beach and village centre being the very last house on Chapel Green Road. There is a village green beyond and a path leads around the end of the peninsula to the far holes of Elie Golf Course and to a further beach and the famous chain walk.


Lot 1: Chapel Green House - Offers over £1,200,000

Chapel Green House is a traditional property which dates back to the 1820s but has also many fine features of the 1920s and 1930s. A magnificent double bay window was added in the late 1980s, giving an almost 180 degree view from inside the house.

The accommodation is arranged so that all the public rooms and the majority of bedrooms have uninterrupted views out to sea. The first floor drawing room and sitting room are particularly notable. There are two further reception rooms and a sun room downstairs.

A cast iron gate leads off Chapel Green Road to a yard and the front door. The entrance hall has a fireplace and connects to the inner hall. Off the inner hall are a double bedroom and a separate shower room.

The sun room extends out from the house and has windows on three sides. The dining room has an Adam style mantelpiece and links to the living room which has a fireplace with Dutch tiles and wooden mantel and a door in the bay window leading into the garden. There is a study adjacent with access to a boiler room with a hot water tank and two Worcester boilers.

The kitchen has fitted pine units, a stainless steel sink, gas hob, Bosch microwave, oven and a Hotpoint fridge freezer and dishwasher. There is a utility room with a washer / dryer and freezer and range of wall units and a double sink. By the back door is a store and WC.

First Floor

The elegant wrought iron staircase splits half way up and to the left is a sitting room which boasts a fine bay window and a handsome open fireplace with attractive Dutch tiles. There are two built in wall cupboards and recesses to the back of the room and a kitchen adjacent. The bedroom with en suite bathroom off this landing means that this area can be used as an integral flat.

The right stairs lead to a drawing room with a large bay window and two south facing corner windows overlooking Chapel Green. The views from this room are spectacular. There is an impressive gas fire with fine French marble mantelpiece. Also off this landing are two bedrooms (one used as a study) and a bathroom.

The attic runs the full length of the house and is accessed by a Ramsay ladder.


The main garden faces the sea and has exposure to the sun for most of the day. The garden is walled, is mainly laid to lawn and is bordered by established flower beds. In front of the sun room is a beautiful feature flower bed well stocked with different varieties of roses and a path from each corner leading to an inner circular path.

Lot 2: Site with Planning Permission - Offers over £650,000

Between Chapel Green House and the neighbouring property is a vacant feu. This is currently the site of a garage with garden store and greenhouse.

A planning consent has been granted by Fife Council to demolish the garage, garden store and green house. A separate consent has been granted to erect a five bedroom 2½ storey house. The proposed house has been carefully designed to fit into the streetscape. Further details can be found on the Fife Planning Portal under ref: 17/00278/FULL

Along the sea front is a terraced area known as the Admiral's Walk. This has a studio with water and power as well as some basic storage units, sink and worktops. This would be ideal as an artist or writer's hut.


Mains gas, water, electricity and drainage, Red Star burglar alarm.
