The Net House

The Net House

This derelict Category B-Listed traditional Net House has been completely transformed into a mini-house, for guest accommodation. The Net House is located in the heart of the historic fishing village of Crail, situated in the beautiful East Neuk of Fife.

The building, tucked behind the High Street, dates from the 1800’s. The building was formerly used for storing and repairing fishing nets; the Net House is now completely habitable.

The owners brief was to create independent private guest accommodation, all within the tight space of the existing Net House.

One of the biggest challenges, was to bring the building up to current energy requirements, whilst maintaining enough internal space for the required accommodation. Guests can enjoy their own kitchen, dining area and lounge with log burner at the vaulted first floor level.

An oak and frameless glass stair case leads down to a cosy double bedroom with ensuite shower room. It was important to keep the buildings a uthenticity, but in a modern and fresh way. The palette of materials are simple, oak, glass and plain walls, with clean lines.
