This charming south east facing first floor three bedroom apartment forms part of a handsome traditional property (circa 1897), enviably located within walking distance of shops, restaurants and St Andrews Cathedral and Castle.
The property is a ten-minute walk to the famous Old Course and is also within easy walking distance of all university departments.
The apartment retains many original features such as the deep skirting to the decorative plaster and cornice work. The bright accommodation comprises entrance hall, living dining kitchen open plan to utility area, three double bedrooms and bathroom. Most of the furniture and furnishings are included within the sale.
The shared garden is a delightful bonus as it allows the owners to enjoy the morning and afternoon sun. There is also a shared brick built outbuilding.
The property has been utilised as a very successful student let, however, this attractive apartment would also make a comfortable town residence or an ideal golfing base/holiday home.
The current landlord holds an HMO licence, which would require to be reapplied for by the new owners within thirty days of purchase if they wish to continue using the property as a buy-to-let property. As Fife Council has put a moratorium on the number of HMO licences and the university is increasing their student numbers this is a particularly attractive investment.
