Other things to note
The garden is to the rear of the property and faces south over the Firth of Forth, with views to the village harbour, North Berwick and the Bass Rock. It is shielded from easterly, northerly and to some degree westerly winds. The whitewashed walls of the house and outhouses to the east boundary reflect the sun and help create a beautiful sun-trap, which has been enjoyed all year round. Pittenweem has some of the lowest rainfall in the United Kingdom.
The garden is well equipped with furniture. There is a long garden bench against the rear wall of the house, a table and chairs (warmer seasons only) and a cushioned swing/hammock seat (warmer seasons again, cushions stored in outhouse).
The large lawn area is bounded by alpine and rose beds and also provides facilities for clothes drying. There are two outhouses containing garden furniture and some children's push-along toys (used at tenant's risk). There is also a covered passage area leading to the side doors to the parking area - this is useful for storing bikes etc and for unloading/loading the car.Get the full listing »
