Flats on Scotland’s most expensive street being snapped up
Former nursing home being converted into six luxury flats
Six £1 million apartments are being created on Scotland’s most expensive street.
The Scores in St Andrews, which leads to the first tee of the Old Course, boasts an average house price of £2.2m.
But it seems the eye-watering price tags are not putting off potential buyers as two of the new properties have already been snapped up.
The luxury two and three-bedroom apartments have become available thanks to the transformation of a former nursing home by two award-winning companies.
Eastacre Investments from St Andrews and Dundee-based Andrew Black Design are renovating the imposing Craigmount home.
It was originally built as two townhouses in 1898 and ceased trading three years ago.
Andrew Black predicted the flats would become some of the most sought-after accommodation in Scotland.
Everything about these properties, and the views which the buyers will enjoy, are simply unrivalled... IAIN LANDSBURGH
“This is a great opportunity to show off our skills on another high-end residential project,” he said.
“It’s also great to be collaborating with another local business which is so committed to the town and to the preservation of ancient buildings.”
Iain Landsburgh, a partner with Eastacre, added: “We are creating a fantastic luxury development on what is arguably the best and most enviable street in Scotland.
“Everything about these properties, and the views which the buyers will enjoy, are simply unrivalled and we very much look forward to revealing the transformation when the scaffolding comes down later this month.”
The project began in January and is expected to be complete by January next year.
Situated on a cliff top and lined with Victorian detached and terrace houses, The Scores is said to have unbeatable views of St Andrews Bay and the North Sea.
The narrow road eventually culminates at the first tee of the worldfamous golf course.”
In December, researchers from the Bank of Scotland said The Scores had knocked addresses in Edinburgh off the top spot to become the most expensive street in Scotland.
Balmoral Court in Auchterarder was the only other location in the top 20 outside Scotland’s main cities.
The houses on The Scores at St Andrews enjoy “unbeatable” sea views.
