Oh how we love a characterful Arts and Crafts house. This delightful house in Fife, Scotland is fine example as to why. Century House is a listed Arts & Crafts house, dating back from 1908.
The seven bedroom house is bursting with period charm, while secretly harbouring a cool modern persona inside – thanks to considerable renovations carried out by the present owners.

Arts and Crafts Century House in Fife
The house offers a wealth of traditional features. Such as an imposing tower overlooking the gardens and crow-stepped gables, reminiscent of Scots Renaissance architecture.
The kitchen/dining area
The kitchen really is the heart of this house. The traditional country AGA sits alongside contemporary high-gloss grey cabinets. The high ceilings and Velux windows provide plenty of natural light to make the space feel even more spacious.
The newly reworked open-plan living spaces opens onto an expansive, south facing decked terrace with outdoor kitchen.
With the trend or indoor/outdoor living this area is a winning attribute of this house during summer months.
The kitchen opens to a spacious, social living area – ideal for the hustle and bustle of family life.
Adjacent to the living space is a generous dining area. With the clever layout, you'd never need leave this one open-plan room.
The living room
The main living room offers the most traditional feel of a period house, thanks to it's rich colour palette – compared to the more contemporary grey.
A classic picture rail and open fireplace helps to add charm to the master bedroom. A soft shade of duck-egg blue provides the perfect soothing colour scheme for a tranquil sleep environment.
Now that's what you call a show-stopping bathroom. A free-standing bath takes centre stage in the circular turret section of the property.
Bifold doors help to create a space made for summer entertaining. While the outdoor living kitchen area has plenty of cooking facilities the main kitchen provides further space for party food prep.
