Filled with period charm and offering spacious and flexible accommodation over two floors, this main-door double upper flat forms part of a handsome, C-listed Georgian building in exclusive St Andrews, within the town's historic conservation area. The flat offers five bedrooms, a reception room, a dining kitchen, and two bathrooms (plus a WC), as well as a private garden.
Accessed via a gate from North Street and approached via a short flight of steps, the flat's private front door opens into a porch (with a WC), leading up to a hall on the first floor. At the end of the hall to the left, you step into a living room, where a spacious footprint offers flexibility for various furniture configurations. A fireplace, an Edinburgh press, twin recessed sash and case windows, and elegant cornicing add period charm to the room. In the neighbouring kitchen, space is provided for a seated dining area and classically styled solid wood cabinets are accompanied by plentiful workspace and splashback tiling. Freestanding appliances comprising a fridge/freezer, a cooker, and a washing machine are included in the sale.
Two of the property's five bedrooms are situated on this floor, both exceptionally airy doubles with ample room for furniture. One of these bedrooms also offers potential to be used as a second reception area, such as a formal dining room, a sitting room, or a family room, and features a fireplace, an Edinburgh press, and cornicing.
On the second floor, a landing (with storage) leads to the three remaining bedrooms (two large doubles and a single) and a bathroom. The double bedrooms are both accompanied by excellent built-in storage and the principal has the additional benefit of an en-suite shower room, whilst the single offers potential to be used as a home office. The bathroom comprises a bath with an overhead shower, and a WC-suite. The home is kept warm by a gas central heating system.
Externally, the flat boasts its own private rear garden, accessed via a shared courtyard and featuring a large lawn, gravelled areas, and patios for outdoor seating and barbecues. Residents of North Street can apply for a permit to park on the street, subject to a fee.
