THE ROCKS, is a luxurious, fully renovated Victorian beach house in the seaside village of Elie and Earlsferry. It is in a prime location, set back from picturesque Earlsferry High Street, with large private gardens leading directly to the blue-flag award winning Elie beach. The 3 storey house offers spacious accommodation for up to 10 guests – the ground floor incorporates all the main living areas and the 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms are on the second and third floors. THE LIGHTHOUSE is a separate self- contained guest annex that can sleep up to 2 additional guests.
Guests entering through the front door will be rewarded with a view, through THE ROCKS to the Firth of Forth and the Bass Rock beyond. There is private off street parking for guests. This is a real asset on this pretty but narrow one-way street.
The ground floor is a spacious, mainly open plan living area with separate lobby, cloakroom, study, utility area and garden room.
The lobby has been preserved as a seating area and standard “porch” clutter transferred to the large utility area to the side of the house. The utility area has a washing machine and tumble dryer, plus storage for golf clubs, bikes and outdoor gear and opens directly to both the street side and beach side of the house to allow direct external access.
There is a cloakroom/WC at the entrance. The entrance hall also accommodates a study area. There is free Wi-Fi at THE ROCKS.
Large double doors open from the hall to the main living area, which has a sociable open plan living room, dining area and kitchen. The living room has ample and comfortable seating with a large flat screen TV, a DVD player with a selection of DVDs for guest use, plus a BOSE iPod sound-dock.
There is a bar area splitting the TV and dining area. A selection of “honesty” spirits will be left, and guests are just asked to replace whatever they drink or make a donation to the silver pig! The dining area by the open fire features a recycled wooden dining table and wineglass drop chandelier and seats 10. There is also a leather chair for lounging fire-side.
The dining area opens on to the garden room which captures the sun throughout the day and offers guests a peaceful retreat with a sea view.
