The Shambles is a charming detached period property (circa 1920) enviably located in one of the most sought after conservation areas of St Andrews and from the house there is a delightful walk along the Lade Braes to the historic town centre and its renowned amenities.
This unique property was designed with the reception rooms facing south over the beautiful private manicured lawn and garden. The property has many delightful features from the substantial storm door, semi circular sitting room window with window seat below, the elegant dining room with its dual aspect windows, patio doors to garden and built-in alcove, to the recently installed modern kitchen with its breakfast bar, under base and wall unit lighting, a Quooker boiling water tap and quality Marmoleum flooring.
The comfortable family accommodation, arranged over two floors, currently comprises on the ground floor: entrance vestibule, entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, breakfasting kitchen, two bedrooms, large study with staircase to upper floor, and recently installed modern family bathroom with WC and wash hand basin set in vanity unit with feature shelf and Karndean flooring; and on the first floor: two spacious double bedrooms, nursery/study and shower room. In addition the property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing. The sale includes the fixed fitted floor coverings and integrated kitchen appliances.
The property is set in delightful garden grounds. Double wrought iron gates lead to a driveway, suitable for off street parking, and single garage with remote controlled entry door. There is planning permission in place for the erection of a car port. To the south of the property there is a private garden mainly laid to lawn surrounded and interspersed with mature trees, a small patio and feature octagonal potting shed. The garden is enclosed by high evergreen hedging.
It is very rare to have the opportunity to purchase a unique period home set in its own delightful garden grounds and, as such, should be viewed at the earliest opportunity.
The historic town of St Andrews is without doubt one of the most popular locations in Britain. St Andrews is home to the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and the famous Old Course. 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 (formerly St Andrews Bay).
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.
St Andrews is well placed for commuting to most of the surrounding towns such as Dundee, Perth, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes and Cupar. The railway station at nearby Leuchars is on the main Aberdeen to London line and provides a fast link to both Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh airport with its shuttle service to London is approximately fifty miles away and further airport facilities and London flights are available from Dundee. EPC - D
