Located in the heart of St. Andrews just a few short blocks from the first tee at The Old Course, this flat offers comfort and convenience for exploring the town as well as easy access to the University. Shops, restaurants and markets are just a stroll away from the front door. Historical sites including the cathedral ruins, castle and museums are all within walking distance.

The 65 square meter dwelling has two bedrooms, one bath and a full kitchen and can accommodate 4 adults. The living room features a beautiful bay window, fireplace and comfortable seating for conversation and cuddling up on the couch with a great book.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Andrews, Saint Andrews, Fife, UK:
We fell in love St. Andrews while our daughter was attending University there. The property needed renovation. Roberta saw its potential and brought it back to its original grandeur.
