The Townhouse house is a supremely comfortable and modernised home 3 minutes from the Old Course, beaches, castle and the ancient medieval heart of St Andrews.

It makes a fabulous hub for exploring, sporting activities or simply relaxing.

At one end of its location lies the ruins of one of Europe’s largest medieval structures - at the other is the world famous Old Course. In between, is one of the world’s oldest universities, the 3rd oldest English-speaking University in the world.

The space
112 North Street is listed by the Scottish Government for its architectural merit and significance. Despite its antiquity, it has been fully and extensively modernised and has evolved into a supremely comfortable and contemporary home. One of its added joys - is location. It is 3 minutes’ stroll from the Old Course and the beaches.
And, although quietly situated, it is just a few minutes’ stroll from all of St Andrew's vibrant restaurants and shops and medieval heart.
The house has recently undergone a further substantial renovation and reconfiguration. Detailed planning permission and building control approvals were gained for substantial works after detailed conversations with planners and building inspectors in the local authority.
This allowed us to remove the awkwardly sited 1970's staircase and thus allow for the creating of two new strikingly modern bathroom facilities - one each on the first and second floor - and a new first floor sitting room. Both bathrooms have brand new walk-in showers of the highest quality coupled to Hansgrohe fittings and Duravit ceramics etc.
The central heating system was also completely replaced. It now centres upon a new Bosch Worcester System boiler coupled to an unvented cylinder. In addition to copious hot water availability, each bathroom hot water supply has an independent access to this system - thus pressure high shower is maintained regardless of the number of simultaneous users. New carpets from Crucial Trading are installed throughout; matched to new paint schemes from Farrow and Ball.
The house is on 3 levels and features original pictures and objects' d'art throughout. All its facilities - from its German Alno kitchen to Poltrona Frau furniture are of the highest quality.
It has its own private garden and barbeque space completely privatised by a bespoke cedar fence. This can also be reached via a private passageway as well as directly from the house.
The garden has been professionally landscaped by award winning Assist Architects and is well stocked with many plants and herbs – quite a few from the remarkable St Andrews Botanic Gardens. Its position means it captures the sun all day and often (this is Scotland after all) becomes a cosy sun trap.
Within, the house is a large, spacious and airy family home. Its lounge extends the full length of the house and adjoins the sunny and open kitchen extension at the rear.
This room has an elegant and contemporary dining table and chairs, coupled with a deeply sprung Poltrona Frau Cassiopeia sofa and chaise longue. A large Sony LED intelligent TV (wired for casting from iPad and iPhone) compliments the room.
It is also connected to cable TV with sports packages from Sky. In addition, it features an award-winning connected sound system from Ruark and an Amazon Echo if you want to request your musical choices from Alexa. The house too is fully connected; its broadband is the optimal fibre optic service is extremely fast and reliable.
The large first-floor double bedroom overlooks the town centre and the many leafy gardens to the rear of the old houses in North Street. It, like all the rooms in the house benefit, from brand-new double-glazed windows. Indeed, all the sash windows were built by an award-winning local joiner, approved by the highly vigilant Conservation planner serving the town. They elegantly replicated the faithful 200-year-old units that had sadly reached the end of their useful life. All the remaining windows were built in Denmark - (perhaps an unintended architectural nod to the abundant Scandinavian ((Viking)) influences on the auld Toon, e.g. derivative of the meaning of The Scores.
This floor also houses a contemporary fully tiled bathroom and sophisticated lightning with shower fed by the powerful Bosch Worcester boiler. Its floor is underheated and is combined with a towel radiator from Bisque.
This floor also houses a new sitting area with a sofa and sofa overlooking the medieval University college buildings and its striking more contemporary library.
Laundry facilities with separate Miele washer and dryer are found on this floor.
On the top floor, accessed via a spacious new staircase, is an additional large double bedroom with two huge double-glazed Velux windows creating a location that is quiet and restful but bright and sunny too. It also has a connected sound system and radio from Ruark and a streaming TV box from Sky with independent controls. Can accept Bluetooth feeds from any wi-fi enabled device, thus allowing the users own streamed music or film to be played with quality and depth.
On this floor too, facing the 16th century tower of St Salvators, is a newly extended bedroom with new double bed and handmade Harris tweed individually cushioned headboard. This room, despite its modest size, benefits from built wardrobe and storage facilities.
It is equipped with a Sony LCD TV with a Sky Q player with online access to enjoy films or listen to broadcasts. Again, it is complemented by two exceptionally large velux windows with comprehensive duo blackout blinds.
Both rooms are adjacent to the new bathroom, similar in design and quality to that downstairs and again equipped with a sophisticated underfloor heating system with Warm-up.
Considerable attention has been given to comprehensively improving the lighting system in all areas of the house, with very high-quality units and controls from Legrand and Baco throughout.

Guest access
Guests have full access to all parts of the house and garden. The house has two very secure entrance doors with a fully enclosed garden which can also be securely locked.

Other things to note
We are a dog-friendly property and welcome them. We are keen dog owners ourselves too. But, especially after the work and effort put into the upgrading of the property, we need to stress that we will not continue to accept any damage or deterioration from any source, particularly pets.
Notwithstanding, please get in touch with us beforehand if you want to bring along your pet. We charge an additional fee of £20 per stay so let us know in advance and we will make the slight adjustment to the booking.
Other types of pet would be considered but this needs to be discussed at the time of booking and prior to arrival.

Saint Andrews, Scotland, United Kingdom

The house is in the heart of one of the best preserved and architecturally intact small medieval cities - anywhere. Golf is clearly one of its most powerful attractions. so too are the numerous galleries and museums and stylish private art salesrooms.

The number of beaches - their scale and pristine beauty - are unmatched. Close by are many unspoiled and utterly charming small fishing villages - Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans, Elie etc

Good, varied restaurants and cafes abound. Similarly, great cosy pubs and plentiful - all are within ambling distance...

Iain's background is in criminal justice; Linda's in social work. We have lived and worked in New Zealand, Serbia, Nigeria and Macedonia - with extensive periods in Scotland and England. However, we are both winding down our existing work roles and replacing this with designing and building new structures and gardens - more travel and exploring.
