Property description

Charming individually designed detached period property (circa 1920), set within delightful walled garden grounds of approximately 0.5 acres, enviably located a short walk from the famous Old Course and West Sands. The property is only a few minutes walk from the historic town centre, St Andrews Cathedral and Castle.
This unique property was designed with all reception rooms and main bedrooms facing south over the large manicured lawn and garden. The impressive property retains its inherent charm and character from the wood panelled reception hall and drawing room with its dual aspect windows, original fire surrounds in most rooms to its fine woodwork and deep skirting throughout.
The accommodation is currently arranged as two separate dwellings divided by adjoining doors on each floor. The west wing accommodation comprises on the ground floor, grand reception hall, elegant drawing room with large deep bay window to side and large low window to garden, living dining kitchen with aga and French doors to garden, cloakroom/utility room with separate WC and, accessed from the main staircase, the first floor accommodation comprises, master bedroom with en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms, bathroom with separate WC. The east wing accommodation comprises entrance hall, sitting room, living dining room with aga and French doors to garden, fitted kitchen, further small kitchen and utility room and, accessed from the original servants staircase, the upper floor accommodation comprises, master bedroom with en suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and bathroom. In addition the property benefits from gas central heating.
The established garden grounds are bordered by a 6 ft high stone wall. Access to the property is through double wrought iron gates leading to a large off street parking area where there are two garages. To the front of the property there is a beautiful manicured lawn surrounded and interspersed with the most attractive shrubberies. To the east side of the property there are two adjoining timber sheds.
It is very rare to have this unrivalled opportunity to purchase and enjoy the character of a beautiful period home set in delightful garden grounds and, as such, should be viewed at the earliest opportunity.
The historic town of St Andrews is without doubt one of the most popular locations in Britain. St Andrews is home to the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and the famous Old Course, which was host to the 2015 Open Championship. Its amenities include Scotland's oldest university, founded in 1413, beautiful award winning beaches, historic buildings, including the ruins of the cathedral, castle and St Rule's Tower and a wide variety of specialist shops and restaurants.
Renowned worldwide as "the home of golf", the residents of the town are eligible for reduced green fees over the seven St Andrews Links courses. There are many other golf courses in the area, including The Dukes, Kingsbarns and the Fairmont St Andrews complex (formerly St Andrews Bay).
St Andrews provides good state schooling at Madras College and private schooling at St Leonards (for girls and boys up to the age of eighteen). There are co-educational public schools near Perth (Glenalmond and Strathallan) and The High School of Dundee is within easy reach.
St Andrews is well placed for commuting to most of the surrounding towns such as Dundee, Perth, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes and Cupar. The railway station at nearby Leuchars is on the main Aberdeen to London line and provides a fast link to both Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh airport with its shuttle service to London is approximately fifty miles away and further airport facilities and London flights are available from Dundee. EPC - F
