Detached House for Sale in St Andrews
2 Bedrooms | Offers Over £450,000
New York Cottage, 19 Bridge Street, St Andrews KY16 9EX
Quietly located in St Andrews, just a short walk from the city centre, this traditional two-bedroom stone-built cottage has historical relevance, dating to the early 1800s.
From 1832-1883, the cottage was the home of Thomas Rodger who was a renowned pioneer of photography in St Andrews. A plaque has been mounted accordingly by the St Andrews Preservation Trust to the mark the importance of the property. Today, the spacious home has been upgraded for modern living, retaining a wealth of character and soft-hued interiors to suit a contemporary lifestyle.
Set behind a gated walled garden, the home's front door opens into an inviting hall. To the right is the generous, dual-aspect living room, which is flooded with natural light for a cheerful atmosphere. A charming open fireplace, flanked by original built-in shelving, frames the room for arranging furniture, providing a lovely snug and cosy ambience in the winter months. Opposite, the generously proportioned dining room also enjoys a dual-aspect, plus a sociable open-plan with the kitchen. It provides a lovely setting for convivial dinner parties and family meals. The kitchen itself, meanwhile, is fitted with a range of timber-effect cabinets and ample worktops, complementing the room's elegant styling. It neatly houses a freestanding cooker and an integrated fridge-freezer, whilst a neighbouring utility room provides a deep cupboard and a discreet area for laundry. The ground-floor accommodation is completed by a bright three-piece shower room with under-stair storage.
Upstairs, a galleried landing neatly conceals a large store before leading to two spacious double bedrooms. Both rooms enjoy an airy dual-aspect, carpets for comfort, and access to substantial eaves storage. Gas central heating and double glazing ensure year-round comfort.
Externally, the sunny garden features a large patio and a beautiful expanse of lawn framed by colourful shrubbery perfect for alfresco dining, coupled with an inspiring view over the St Andrews skyline.
