Occupying a prime location on a sought-after, leafy street in the St Andrews conservation area, this Georgian terraced townhouse boasts classically- proportioned interiors arranged over three levels, including four double bedrooms, two bathrooms, and generous reception space. Although updated for modern living, the period property retains a number of charming original features and is accompanied by delightful, private and shared walled gardens. Currently utilised as a very successful student let, the substantial property would also represent a comfortable town residence or an ideal golfing base/holiday home.
The front door opens into a vestibule, leading into a reception hall with a WC and a traditional staircase winding up to the two upper floors. To the left of the hall, a front-facing living room enjoys a sunny, west-facing aspect and an open view towards the leafy front garden. Promising a comfortable lounge setting, the reception room is characterised by solid wood flooring and some of the original features found throughout, including a lofty ceiling with smooth cornicing detail, a tall sash-and-case window, and a traditional press. Further along the hall, a kitchen is fitted with a good range of classic, neutral cabinetry, an integrated raised oven and microwave, a ceramic hob, and a concealed extractor fan, along with a freestanding fridge/freezer and a dishwasher, whilst a washing machine and a dryer are housed in an adjoining utility room. With space for a dining table and chairs, the kitchen creates an ideal setting for casual meals and entertaining and opens onto the rear garden, extending the sociable area outdoors. On the first floor are two of home's four double bedrooms. Echoing the timber flooring and neutral décor of the living accommodation, the well-proportioned sleeping areas provide ample space for bedroom and home office furnishings, with the master bedroom accompanied by a spacious en-suite shower room. Located on the second floor, the two remaining bedrooms (one with built-in storage) are spacious and airy and are served by a three-piece bathroom with a shower-over-bath and vanity storage. Gas central heating is found throughout with single and double glazing. Externally, a private walled rear garden and shared front garden are chipped for ease of maintenance. The rear garden is a sheltered east-facing space directly accessed from the dining kitchen, whilst, directly across the street, the front garden enjoys a west-facing aspect and mature trees and planting. Parking is available in the vicinity with a residents' permit.
