Property description

Spacious and luxurious cottage located just minutes away from the Old Course, with a view of the St. Andrews Harbor on one side and St. Andrews castle on the other.

This property is brand new, built in a contemporary and comfortable style, with three spacious bedrooms, a beautiful kitchen and living room with a view of the harbor, 2 car garage and a backyard with private entrance and boat docking into the exclusive St. Rules Boatyard.

Not only does the ideal location make it one of the best available rental properties in the area, it is spacious, comfortable and private- amenities you will not be able to find with most rentals in St. Andrews.

Whether you're on a family vacation looking to take in the sites where castles once stood or on a golfing trip with a group of friends, this property is conveniently located walking distance from everything a guest would desire. For golfing fanatics, the golf courses that call Scotland home are just a short distance away and don't forget to brew yourself a cup of coffee before you take the short walk with your golf clubs to the first hole and legendary clubhouse of the Old Course.

Year Purchased: 2011

About: Originally the owner built the cottage for his son, who was studying at St. Andrews University. From the beginning the prime location made it very desirable with current St. Andrews students, who would rent the property year round just to reserve a spot in the luxury cottage. Upon staying in a bed and breakfast, similar to one that most golfers reside in during their stay, he realized that his cottage was superior. It provided more comfort and space, was in a better location and the view was unlike any other. he decided to make this luxurious property available in the summer time to those who would appreciate it the most. The owner currently resides in Switzerland with his family and comes to Scotland often to check on this property along with others he has acquired.

Why St. Andrews:
It's rare in St. Andrews to find a property available for rent that is this close to the bustling downtown scene of restaurants, bars, cigar lounges, cafes and tourist shopping. Additionally, the size of the property along with the comfort and view that come with it makes it one of the most sought after rental properties in the area. With its own private dock, visitors can sail in and tie up right beneath a private backyard, walk up to the full kitchen to prepare a meal before, enjoying the sites of castle ruins or throw their golf bag over their shoulder and walk to the home of golf for an unforgettable 18 holes. No matter what the weather is like or what you are looking to do in the area, this property provides renters with a luxurious experience unlike any that others in the area can provide.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is brand new, providing a spacious feel as you enter through the doors into an open and comfortable living room on the second floor. Not only does the size of this property make it unique but the contemporary style with wood floors and finishing are unique. The full kitchen, fridge and dining area allow you to prepare your own meals or order in/pick up from one of the many restaurants that are just minutes away. After a day full of site seeing, golfing or whiskey tours, take your cigar or glass of scotch out onto the balcony and enjoy the sunset in a private backyard, a luxury you will certainly not find in any other properties in town.
