Wester Haining is in St Andrews, the ancient and historic university town and world renowned ‘Home of Golf’ which offers residents a superb mix of services and facilities.  Superbly located within a quiet and long-established residential area of St Andrews, it is a few minutes’ drive from local amenities and the shops, restaurants, sandy beaches and golf courses that the centre of St Andrews boasts.


The city of Dundee is some thirteen miles to the north with Edinburgh easily accessible to the south.  The East Neuk is nearby with its quaint picturesque fishing villages, whilst the bustling former county market town of Cupar is a short drive to the west.  Surrounding St Andrews is some particularly fine countryside and coastline with a lovely mix of farmland, woodland, rivers, and hill ground, which provides an excellent choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, sailing, and riding all readily available. 


There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including the Old Course at St Andrews and the Championship Course at Carnoustie, both of which regularly host the British Open – the 150th anniversary event returned to St Andrews in July 2022.  St Andrews Links Trust have seven courses in the town, other nearby courses include Dumbarnie, Kingsbarns, the Dukes, Crail, Lundin Links and Ladybank.  In terms of days out Tentsmuir, Kingsbarns and Elie are a short drive away and offer good sandy beaches, in addition to those found at St Andrews.  National Trust for Scotland properties in the area include Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace.  State schooling is available locally, with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St Andrews and the High School of Dundee.  Rail transport links can be found at Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Dundee.  Dundee and Edinburgh airports are also well within reach.


A fabulous high-specification family home, Wester Haining offers hugely spacious, pristinely presented light and bright accommodation.  An entrance vestibule opens onto the fabulous central entrance hallway, with bifurcated stair, off which the accommodation leads.  To the left, the beautifully finished, well-appointed Charles Yorke breakfasting/kitchen with useful utility room off, giving garden and garage access as well as stairs up to a cinema room/bedroom 5.  The adjacent dining room leads onto the family room, with bay window and log burning stove.  A generous formal living room, with log burning stove and doors to the garden, leads through to the wonderful sunroom from which the garden can also be accessed.  An office and WC complete this level.


On the first floor there are four well-sized bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and one with an ensuite bathroom and sauna.  There is also a fabulous Charles Yorke family bathroom and cupboard storage.



To the front is generous driveway parking and a double garage.  The garden is thoughfully laid out and well maintained; with lawns, neat shrubbed raised beds and borders along with paved areas, circular fire pit area and summer house for making the most of the outdoors in all weather.
