Detached House | 5 Bedrooms

This elegant detached period property, set within its own delightful landscaped garden grounds, is situated in a highly desirable area to the west end of St Andrews. A short distance from the house is the Lade Braes, a beautiful walk, which leads to the historic town centre and its renowned amenities. The property is also within easy walking distance of Lawhead Primary School.

Built in 1926 the charming property retains many original features including cornicing, open fireplace, and bay windows. This unique property was designed with the main reception rooms and main bedrooms facing south over the large manicured lawn and garden. The addition of the conservatory linking the luxury breakfasting kitchen and sitting room adds an ideal space for entertaining as well as a superb room to appreciate the mature garden.

The property has been beautifully refurbished to a high standard and the layout flows neatly from the central hallway with a good balance of family rooms and space for entertaining. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises: entrance vestibule, entrance hall, sitting room with feature bay window, family room/study, conservatory, breakfasting kitchen, utility room, guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom and cloakroom, and on the upper floor: master bedroom with feature bay window, three further bedrooms and shower room.

40 Buchanan Gardens is accessed from the street by a gravel driveway which encircles a central island flower bed. The front garden has a variety of mature trees and shrubs and is enclosed by wooden fencing edged by a border. The main entrance to the house is found to the side of the property and a path continues past the entrance door to the rear garden. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn surrounded by the most attractive shrubberies and mature trees. The gardens are a superb feature of the property with well planned and colourful planting for year round interest.

It is very rare to have the opportunity to purchase and enjoy the character of this beautiful period home set in delightful garden grounds and, as such, should be viewed at the earliest opportunity.

Its amenities include Scotland's oldest university, founded in 1413, beautiful award winning beaches, historic buildings, including the ruins of the cathedral, castle and St Rule's Tower and a wide variety of specialist shops and restaurants.

Renowned worldwide as "the home of golf", the residents of the town are eligible for reduced green fees over the seven St Andrews Links courses. There are many other golf courses in the area, including The Dukes, Kingsbarns and the Fairmont St Andrews complex.

St Andrews provides good state schooling at Madras College and private schooling at St Leonards (for girls and boys up to the age of eighteen). There are co-educational public schools near Perth (Glenalmond and Strathallan) and The High School of Dundee is within easy reach.
