A 17th Century Fife building that has been turned into a unique home has been put up for sale.
The B-listed property in Inverkeithing has been described as a “little castle”.
Known as The Doocot, the one-bedroom building on Merchants Way is small but full of charm and character.
It is on the market for £145,000.
A doocot, or dovecot, was historically a structure for housing pigeons, containing compartments for the birds to roost and lay eggs.
According to the sales brochure, the home’s current owner said: “I’ve loved living in The Doocot for the past seven years.
“It’s a really special building.
“It has a great blend of old and new; outside it looks like a little castle while inside it feels like a modern home.”
The house is set over three levels, featuring a mezzanine landing on the top floor, where the home’s only double bed sits in the curve of the turret.
The mezzanine looks over the first-floor lounge, which has 12 top-light windows to retain the ‘doocot’ appearance.
There is also space for a table and chair set in this room.
On the ground floor is a fitted kitchen and a modern bathroom.
The property has double glazing and electric heating throughout.
A small lawn area surrounds the building and off-street parking is available.
The Inverkeithing house – which was last for sale in 2016 for offers over £119,000 – is being marketed for sale by Maloco Mowat Parker.
