The house is largely the creation of William Bruce who made it his home around the late 1600s
when he was architect to King Charles II and working on Holyrood Palace. Later additions were
made by William Burn, a prominent Scottish architect involved in other notable designs in Fife.
This early baroque house is Category A listed and sits within an archetypal designed landscape.
The Anstruther family has been a part
of the East Neuk community since the
12th century and the connection with
Balcaskie started towards the end of the
17th century. Today, it is home to Toby
Anstruther, his wife Kate and their family,
and the estate is a member of the East
Neuk Estates group.
