Rarely available detached cottage with uninterrupted views over The Dukes Golf Course, St Andrews and beyond.
Robin Hill was converted around 1987 into this attractive detached, capacious cottage in this highly sought, quiet development located just on the outskirts of St Andrews.
The accommodation comprises entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, three double bedrooms, en-suite shower room and family bathroom.
Robin Hill is a spacious detached cottage requiring some modernisation and upgrading but the accommodation, layout and location make this a highly desirable property. The sitting room is an excellent size with French doors looking out over the attractive garden and beyond. The original kitchen is fitted with a variety of base and wall units with the usual appliances included and opens into the dining room which has ample room for a formal dining suite and gives access into the hall and sitting room.
The master bedroom is located to the rear of the cottage overlooking the private paved courtyard and is fitted with a full wall of wardrobes and en-suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes and a separate family bathroom with three piece suite. An added bonus to Robin Hill is the floor and lined attic space which has dual aspect Velux windows and would easily be converted into further accommodation subject to the necessary permissions.
The main area of garden is located off the sitting room and is laid mainly to lawn with a variety of well stocked borders and bed and is a beautiful place to enjoy the views. To one side of the cottage is a further area of lawn and drying green that leads to the private patio courtyard which could be used for parking although there is parking available at the main door into the cottage or the single garage.
