Location

4 and 4B Links Crescent are situated in the row of substantial Victorian villas to the south side of the main road into St Andrews which runs parallel to The Links and the famous Old Course. The entrance to the Royal & Ancient Golf Club offices is diagonally opposite and Golf Place, the street which leads to the 18th Green of the Old Course, the Royal and Ancient Clubhouse and the West Sands Beach, is just beside.

The property is just 400 ft from the 18th fairway of the Old Course and is ideally placed for access to the other golf courses operated by The St Andrews Links Trust, as well as the West Sands beach, the university and all the shops, pubs and restaurants in North Street, South Street and Market Street. The University of St. Andrews is one of the oldest in Britain (founded in 1413) and attracts students from all over the world.

St Andrews is renowned worldwide as the home of golf. There are now seven golf courses at St Andrews including the Old Course, regular host to the Open Championship which will next be staged there in 2022. There are many other golf courses in the area including two courses at St Andrews Bay, The Dukes Course, Kingsbarns, Crail and Elie.

The Royal Burgh of St Andrews has several primary schools and good state secondary schooling at Madras College and private co-educational schooling at St Leonards. Dundee High School is within easy reach. The town has a good range of shops, hotels, restaurants and supermarkets, a cinema and the Byre Theatre.

Beyond St Andrews is the East Neuk of Fife with its spectacular coastline which boasts fishing villages built around picturesque harbours and sandy unspoilt beaches. Leuchars railway station (4 miles) is on the main Aberdeen to London line and connects to Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport, with its range of domestic and international flights, is only 50 miles away.

Description

Kildonan was a substantial semi-detached Victorian sandstone villa built in 1898 for Provost Murray of St. Andrews, an acquaintance of Old Tom Morris . Kildonan was subdivided in the late 1940s into three flats - Nos 4, 6 & 8. No. 4, which comprised the whole ground-floor, became known as Kildonan House.

Kildonan House was subdivided into two flats (4 and 4A) in the early 1970s with No. 4 being retained by the current owners. No.4 was then subdivided into separate flats � 4 and 4B - in 1989. It could easily be reconverted into a substantial single dwelling (subject to the necessary local authority consents).

4B has its own private, established south-facing garden. The lawn (or drying green) is shared by both flats and by Flat 4A. 4 & 4B Links Crescent are available to purchase together or separately.

4B Links Crescent

Flat 4B has the benefit of being private, secluded and south-facing with its own large garden.

The accommodation extends to 850 sq ft / 79m2 and is enhanced by the feature of a sun room with a window opening into the kitchen and a vestibule outside. The sun room has a flagstone floor, exposed stone inner wall with fireplace and glazed roof.

Off the sun room is an inner hall with a deep storage cupboard off and the kitchen. The kitchen is well fitted with black floor and white cupboards, a breakfast bar, gas hob, double wall ovens, dishwasher, washing machine and sink. Behind the sun room glazed double doors lead to a sitting room with an electric fire on a raised hearth. The bedroom has a bay window and a recessed cupboard with shelves below. Both rooms have traditional ornate cornices. There is shower/wet room with shower compartment with electric shower, wash basin and WC. A small study area is situated between the sitting room and the bedroom.

Outside is a semi-paved terrace, a rock garden with water feature. The private ownership forms a U shape around the lawn or drying green which is shared with 4 and 4A. There is a garden shed in the corner.

4 Links Crescent

4 is a more modest flat extending to 529 sq ft / 49m2. It has an entrance corridor and hall with mirror-fronted wardrobes/storage. The sitting room has a bay window and wooden floor. There is a bedroom and a shower room.

The kitchen is well fitted with floor and wall cupboards, a cooker with gas hob, a dishwasher and washing machine.

The flat has use of the lawn or drying green which is shared with 4A and 4B and enjoys its own garden beds on both sides of the entrance pathway. It is currently let with vacant possession being available in June.
