42/44 Marketgate South is a charming property in a delightful central location within the highly sought-after East Neuk conservation village of Crail which provides an excellent range of shops, services and amenities. From Crail there is easy access to the other villages of the East Neuk including Anstruther, Cellardyke and Elie as well as up to St. Andrews which is only about a twenty minute drive to the north. Ancient, historic and cosmopolitan, the town offers an excellent range of facilities along with a highly regarded university. St. Andrews is also known world-wide as the home of golf. About eighteen miles to the north-west lies Cupar, Fife's bustling county market town, also providing a good range of services. In terms of city amenities Dundee is within a forty-five minute drive to the north with Edinburgh about an hour and twenty minutes to the south.
Surrounding Crail is an area of glorious Fife countryside comprising a wonderful mix of fertile farmland, woodland, hill, stunning coastline and river. The result is home to an array of wildlife and, for the outdoor enthusiast, provides an area offering access to a wide range of recreational pursuits including riding, cycling, walking, sailing and golf with many highly rated courses within easy reach including the courses at Crail itself, Kingsbarns, St. Andrews Bay, Elie, Leven and the numerous fine courses in and around St. Andrews where the Old Course regularly hosts the British Open with the next visit in the summer of 2015. Challenging shooting and fishing may be taken locally and there are some fine pheasant shoots nearby. The Fife Hunt is the most northerly pack of fox hounds in the UK and there are many opportunities for riding with pony clubs for the younger enthusiast. There is racing and polo at Scone outside Perth, which is also the venue for the annual Scottish Game Fair. Crail is well placed for accessing the various pretty fishing villages of Fife's quaint East Neuk including Pittenweem, St. Monans and Anstruther which are just a short drive to the south-west whilst in terms of days out the wide open spaces of the Lomond Hills are not far away along with a number of popular National Trust for Scotland properties including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. Fife's beautiful and varied coastline includes several good sandy beaches such as Tentsmuir, Elie and St. Andrews with the popular Fife coastal path also running through the village.
State schooling is available locally with private schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews. There are railway stations at Cupar, Ladybank, Markinch and Kirkcaldy with Edinburgh airport less than an hour and twenty minutes to the south. The regional airport at Dundee offers a selection of short haul flights.
Category B listed and of a delightful stone exterior under a traditional red pantile roof with wonderful crow stepped gables, 42/44 Marketgate South is a stunning and deceptively spacious property. Until quite recently comprising the popular Jerdan Gallery, works have recently been completely to convert the former gallery into additional living space. The result is huge success with the ground floor now comprising the wonderful new open plan kitchen / dining room / family room together with outstanding garden room to the rear, complete with cosy stove and lovely garden views. The bathroom completes the ground floor. At first floor level lies the delightful sitting room along with bedroom 4, utility room and shower room, as well as landing area with access to the rear garden. A further staircase then leads on to the second floor landing where there are three bedrooms and further shower room. With a wholly unique and charming feel throughout the lovely woodwork is a particular feature of the house whilst there are distant sea views to the rear from the upper floors.
Greenhouse, two timber sheds
The garden at 42/44 Marketgate South is an absolute gem.

At the foot of the garden is the productive kitchen garden with a range of beds.
