St. Andrews apartment description

Old Admiralty House (The Garden Flat) provides deluxe self catering accommodation in a stunning location in St Andrews, the ‘home of golf’. Situated on a cliff top vista overlooking the sea with the Harbour to the East and the Old Castle to the West, the situation could not be more dramatic.

We have recently acquired the Garden Flat and it has undergone a major refurbishment. It now provides provide top quality accommodation in an ideal location.

The garden flat has three bedrooms, two of which are en-suite and in addition there is a bathroom with shower over. The bedrooms can be double or twin or a mix of both to suit the party that you are bringing. The large sea view kitchen is fully fitted and equipped including a dishwasher, washing machine and drier, microwave and ceramic hob. There is an adjacent dining room which again looks out to sea. The lounge with views to the garden is fitted with comfy furniture, television and hi-fi and the Master Bedroom has direct access to the South facing conservatory/sun room which can also be accessed from the garden.

Catering for up to six people, the garden flat is the downstairs half of one big house and will therefore cater for up to 12 people using both apartments. It is an ideal well-being holiday destination for those seeking to explore the East Neuk of Fife or laze on the award winning beaches. St Andrews is the Home of Golf and Old Admiralty House is a ten minute walk from the 1st tee of the Old Course, arguably the most famous and sought after golfing venue in the world.

Indeed there are over 100 golf courses within an hour’s drive of St Andrews making it the ideal centre for a golf vacation in Scotland. St Andrews besides being the ‘Mecca’ for golf is a haven for all types of holiday and is an ideal base for a self catering holiday with lots to do in the immediate area.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: My father was the Caterpiller Dealer in Calcutta India and so I was born in that far off country. The bulk of my career has been as a Dealer Principal within the Motor Trade in Scotland from which I retired in 2010. We purchased the Upper flat in 2007 and the Garden flat in 2010 which gave us the whole of the property. With my background in customer service we try hard to satisfy the requirements of our guests and pay particular attention to the detail that will make their stay something special to remember.

                      Why the Owner Chose St. Andrews:
                      My home town was Dundee and with an Aunt who lived in St Andrews I was introduced to the game of golf at an early age. I used to come over the water on a regular basis to play the great Links and have always regarded it as a unique venue with its own special character. When the opportunity arose then what better place to acquire a piece of history in this very historic town?!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Old Admiralty House is one of the relatively few privately owned properties that has uninterupted views of the sea. It is a short walk to both the golf courses and the centre of the town. However although close to the bustling centre with all the pubs, shops and restaurants it is a quiet haven being situated at the end of a cull-de-sac with no through traffic. You wake up to the sound of the sea and the call of the seabirds and couldn't be furthar away from all the pressure of modern life. It truly is a place you can recharge the batteries!
