Property description

Spacious 3 bedroom apartment in the heart of Elie

Description

Baker’s House, 43B High Street, is a superb second floor apartment set in an impressive late-Victorian building which is thought to date back to around 1890. The accommodation is extremely well presented and improvements and upgrades have been made both internally and externally in recent years. Externally, this includes the repointing of the building frontage, the repainting of the sides and rear and significant roof improvements. The sash and case windows were also fully serviced and re-corded by a specialist joiner in May 2020. Internally, improvements include the restoration of the hardwood staircases, and the repainting of the apartment in 2020.

The apartment is approached by a shared entrance where carpeted stairs overlooked by a stained glass window lead up to the first floor. Here the main door to the apartment leads into an entrance hall with hardwood stairs leading up to the second floor above. All of the accommodation sits off the landing, which has a new Axminster wool carpet that was fitted in 2020 and which also features in other rooms. The kitchen has a range of fitted units and integrated appliances, a seating area, and views to the west over the rooftops towards Elie Parish Church. The sitting room has outstanding views to the south towards the Firth of Forth. The deep window sill provides a great breakfast or home working area with a view. The room also has a wood burning stove set into a fireplace.

There are three double bedrooms, two of which share the outstanding south facing views. The shower room and was refitted in 2019 and improved in 2021, with a WC and a Velux window overhead. There is also a separate bathroom.

ATTIC: POTENTIAL FOR ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODATION
