Sleeps ten - A wonderful 4 storey historic townhouse in the heart of St Andrews which has been tastefully renovated and refurbished over recent months. The end result is a fabulous property full of original features and traditional details but fully equipped for modern living.
The house lies towards the eastern end of South Street close to the historic cathedral and surrounded by many properties still occupied by the University. At this point South Street is a wide tree-lined boulevard with generous pavements and an almost continental feel. All that the town centre has to offer by way of shops, bars and restaurants is only a few steps away but despite that the house is located in a more tranquil part of the town centre.
There is a generous living room and separate dining room on the first floor with both rooms overlooking South Street and also on this floor is the beautifully refitted kitchen. The rooms on the first floor make wonderful use of the original exposed stone walls.
On the second and third floors the sleeping accommodation is extremely flexible with 4 double bedrooms that can either be super king size or twin bedded and two further single bedrooms, one bedroom has an en-suite shower room and there are two further shower rooms.
On the ground floor there is a generous entrance hall with a golf club storage area and through the utility area there is access to an outside courtyard area with seating.
This is a very special house for your special trip to St Andrews.
There is nowhere quite like St Andrews. It has world renowned golf courses, miles and miles of sandy beaches, fabulous coastal walks, world-class restaurants and the history of being an esteemed University town. There is something for everybody here.
There are about 30 golf courses within 15 miles. The restaurants in the town are numerous and of excellent quality. Similarly excellent quality is to be found amongst the local shops, with a range of independent boutiques and artisan traders selling unique labels and fresh local produce from St Andrews and the surrounding area. There are music and art festivals held locally during the year.
St Andrews holds a special place in Scotland's history. It takes its name from the Apostle whose relics, legend tells us, were brought to this place in antiquity by St Rule. Scotland later adopted St Andrew as her patron saint and took his saltire cross for her flag. Before the Reformation, the town was the centre of religious life in medieval Scotland, with the bishops wielding great influence over both church and state. St Andrews is also famous as a place of learning. The university, founded in 1410-11, is the third oldest in Britain.
For many visitors, though, it's a game that draws them here, for St Andrews is the home of golf, the sport having been played here for some 600 years. The Old Course is arguably the most famous golf course in the world, and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club is still the ruling body for the rules of golf. Fittingly, the Old Course hosted the Open during the millennium year and did so again in 2005, 2010 and 2015. The next staging of the Open in St Andrews is set for 2021, which will be the 150th playing of this historic tournament. Be sure to book your accommodation early.
There are 8 fabulous golf courses within the town and many Championship Links courses in neighbouring villages.
St Andrews is a town designed for exploring. The medieval layout of the town centre remains intact, with the main shopping areas concentrated in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets. Take time to explore – on foot – and take pleasure at the surprises and delights you will find.
There are some ancient historic buildings to explore (the Castle and Cathedral are must-sees), museums (including the British Golf Museum), as well as the stunning beaches with all they have to offer and the pier - spectacular for a walk at sunset.
