Take a chance on upgraded cottage

Chance Inn is a tiny hamlet near Ceres in Fife that’s as charming as it is charmingly named.

Surrounded by countryside and within easy reach of Cupar and St Andrews, it consists of a couple of streets of pretty, traditional cottages.

They rarely come up for sale but one is now on the market. Sanaig Cottage is a terraced stone cottage with whitewashed walls and a tiled roof.

Its current owners have overhauled its interior, eschewing the traditional layout of small rooms in favour of a modern, open-plan arrangement.

The lounge and kitchen have been knocked together to create a large living-cooking-dining area. A wood burning stove provides a nice focal point and makes it an easy home to keep warm. There’s also underfloor heating in the kitchen and bathrooms.

Another feature is the wide timber and metal spiral staircase that leads from the lounge to an attic-level master bedroom, complete with en suite shower room, dressing room and views to the rear of the house across fields and woods.

On the ground floor there’s a family bathroom, bedroom and another room that can be used as either a study or third bedroom.

Outside, there’s timber decking and steps down to a lawn. The house backs onto fields and enjoys fine countryside views.

Sanaig Cottage, Chance Inn, Fife is on sale with Thorntons for o/o £210,000.
