42 North Street has a prime setting in central St Andrews. It is towards the Cathedral end of North Street opposite The Younger Hall and adjacent to the University. St Salvator's Chapel and St Salvator's Quadrangle, where many University functions take place, are close by. The University of St Andrews is one of the oldest in Britain (founded in 1413) and attracts students from all over the world.
The property is also well placed for access to The Scores which is the cliff top street which leads to the West Sands Beach and for all the shops, pubs and restaurants in North Street, South Street and Market Street.
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 Duke's Course, Kingsbarns, Crail and Elie.
The Royal Burgh of St Andrews has several primary schools and 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.

Edinburgh Airport, with its range of domestic and international flights, is only 50 miles away.
