Other popular retail destinations are Waterstones, Boots, and H&M. The property itself is conveniently situated within walking distance of Morrisons and M&S Food along with a local health centre. Thriving and cosmopolitan bars, restaurants, and cafès sit side-by-side offering fine dining through to casual lunches and drinks. Education at all levels is well-catered for. Positioned on the stunning east coast of Fife, St Andrews is the perfect location from which to explore the characterful fishing villages that make up this scenic part of Scotland including Anstruther, St Monans, Crail, and Pittenweem. Dundee to the north is a thirty-minute drive and Edinburgh to the south is approx. 90 minutes by car or just over an hour by train from Leuchars. 

The ancient and historic town of St Andrews occupies a wonderful position on the east coast of Fife. Surrounded by picturesque countryside, woodlands, and beautiful coastline it offers much for the outdoor enthusiast with pleasant walk and cycle routes minutes away as well as opportunities for sailing, riding and days spent on the beach. There are world-renowned golf courses to enjoy including The Old Course at St Andrews and the Championship Course at Carnoustie. Residents can also discover nearby courses such as those at Kingsbarns, Crail, and Lundin Links. In addition to the breathtaking beach at St Andrews West Sands extending to almost two miles, there are several more to explore nearby such as those at Elie, Tentsmuir, and Kingsbarns, all of which are just a short drive. St Andrews Botanic Gardens, Museum, and Cathedral are just a few of the local attractions to explore and there are several National Trust properties in the area including Kellie Castle and Hill of Tarvit. State schooling is available locally and private options include those at St Leonards in St Andrews and at The High School of Dundee.

General Description


Distinguished by its generous proportions, an abundance of natural light, and a thoughtfully designed contemporary interior, this impressive four-double-bedroom semi-detached home with gardens is situated in one of St Andrew’s most prestigious neighbourhoods. Approached via a private driveway flanked by a neat lawn with pretty borders, the front door opens to a welcoming entrance vestibule adorned with terracotta floor tiles and a bright, carpeted hallway. This then leads to an east-facing sitting room. Boasting plentiful natural light and a fresh colour palette it is an inviting living and reception space that seamlessly flows into an adjacent living room through elegant French doors and extends to the modern sun room and garden. Spanning the entire length of the property these three interconnected rooms can either be enjoyed independently or when opened up, make an exceptional place to entertain and socialise. Across the hallway lies the stunning Schüller kitchen. Carrying on the understated yet sophisticated ambience of the property, it features handleless white wall and floor units complemented by sleek grey worktops and high-spec SIEMENS appliances including an eye-level microwave oven / grill, oven, built in dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. A desirable kitchen island houses a gas hob and offers comfortable informal dining for two. The ground floor utility and WC ensure that the kitchen remains uncluttered, resulting in the perfect combination of modern-day style and functionality. Adjoining the kitchen is a chic skylit dining room with bi-fold doors opening out to the rear garden and alfresco area. This boasts the same handsome wooden flooring and ambient lighting as the kitchen. Returning to the hallway, carpeted stairs take you to the four spacious and versatile double bedrooms. The south-facing principal enjoys a wonderful aspect over the rear garden and together with a tasteful interior features a design-led en-suite shower room featuring a curved bath with a wall-mounted shower, WC, chrome towel radiator, and washbasin built into vanity set against large porcelain wall tiles. The three remaining bedrooms are well-presented with one currently utilised as a generous home office, adding flexibility to the layout. These share access to a modern family bathroom complete with a countertop washbasin on a wall-hung vanity, chrome towel radiator, and WC.


A charming garden with pretty borders is nestled behind a low stone wall and leads to the front door. The driveway runs alongside leading to a spacious detached garage. 

The peaceful, enclosed south and west-facing mature rear garden with its expansive lawn, borders, established trees, and patio offers a variety of tranquil areas for relaxation, dining, and socialising. A convenient and sizeable garden shed offers storage for garden tools and furniture.
