About the property

A very imposing Victorian house which has been adapted to modern living in a sympathetic way. Only a few hundred metres from Elie's local shops, deli, pub and Michelin star restaurant.

About Robert B Hare

We bought The Elms because of its symmetry and original features. We thought it was such a shame that the previous owners were hiding the character of the building so we set about doing something about it! My family just love the house and even though we have now bought another house in the village we just cannot allow ourselves to sell it. Most days as we travel to and from Edinburgh we always look over at the house and pass some comment or other about it! We have put our own wee stamp on the frontage as Jo made the stain glass window! So, we hope you enjoy it as we did.
