Semi-Detached House for Sale in St Andrews

4 Bedrooms | Offers Over £395,000

8 Nelson Street, St Andrews KY16 8AJ

Enjoying a prime position in St Andrews, just a short walk from the city centre and the renowned university, this spacious 4 bedroom semi-detached house boasts a contemporary kitchen and a large garden, in addition to extensive parking options, including a garage.

With its outstanding location, the property is currently utilised as a very successful student let. The current landlord holds an HMO licence for five people, which would need to be reapplied for by the new owners within thirty days of purchase if they wish to continue using the home as a buy-to-let property. To enable purchasers a turn-key investment and to commence immediate letting, the sale will include all fitted carpets and window coverings, kitchen appliances, furnishings, and all additional contents. Details of current rent will be made available to seriously interested parties. The current HMO license permits five occupants although the sellers have generally limited tenancy to four. Plans are also available for an attic conversion to provide a fifth bedroom. These plans will be made available to the purchaser. Although the plans have not been submitted for local authority consents, they have been prepared professionally to comply with Building Standards.

Tucked behind a walled front garden, the home's main door opens to a welcoming vestibule and hallway, defined by crisp white décor and pale timber-toned flooring. To the left is the south-facing living room, which is a generously proportioned reception area, accommodating comfortable lounge furniture and space for a dining table, as well as a glass-shelved recess for display wares. It has an airy ambience, enhanced by a large picture window flooding the room in warm afternoon sun. In the kitchen, a modern style is assured by striking cherry red splashback panels, cream cabinets, and contrasting black granite-style worktops. It is an attractive design incorporating an integrated electric hob and oven, and a freestanding fridge-freezer and a washing machine. Next door is an accessible ground-floor double bedroom, which provides flexible dimensions for alternative use as additional living space. Completing this level is a convenient WC located off the hall. Upstairs, a landing (with storage) leads to three further bedrooms all continuing the neutral décor, but with plush carpeting for added comfort. There are two spacious doubles, one to the front with a shelved recess and one to the rear with built-in storage, and a versatile single that could be utilised as a home office. Completing the property is a bright three-piece shower room with a handy store cupboard. Double glazed windows and gas central heating ensure year round comfort and efficiency.

Outside, there is a large rear garden with a lawn and loose stone bays perfect for summer barbecues. A gated driveway and a detached garage offer secure parking for multiple cars. EPC Rating - D.
