A three-story St Andrews townhouse is only a chip and putt from the world’s most famous golf course finds Jack McKeown A swing from the Old Course
St Andrews has long been one of Scotland’s biggest property hot spots. One of its most sought after locations is North Street. It is home to the town’s cinema as well as a range of restaurants, pubs and charming shops, it’s close to St Andrews’ three beaches.
Number 114 is a cheerful three-storey townhouse with its own small garden.
The ground floor has an entrance hall leading into the living room, which in turn takes you through to the dining room.
Deeper into the ground floor is the kitchen, which has a sun room off that opens onto a pretty courtyard garden that offers a sheltered, sunny spot to enjoy breakfast or an evening meal. There’s also a downstairs loo. On the first floor are two bedrooms, one a double and the other currently laid out as a twin room. The double additionally has an en suite shower room.
Up another flight of stairs and you reach the master bedroom. From here there are great views over the rooftops of the historic town.
Also on the top floor is a family bathroom and a utility room – which could lend itself to conversion, subject to planning permission.
The property could be of interest to golfers, students, investors and townspeople of St Andrews.
It’s also in a prime location to capitalise on the major golf tournaments – no less a figure than American star John Daly has used the house as his base during the Open.
