This beautifully presented ground floor flat comes to the market in excellent decorative order and is very well positioned in an absolutely prime location in the heart of St Andrews. It is only a moments' walk from all local amenities, shops, restaurants, bars, university, etc and of the historic cathedral, castle, harbour and the East Sands Beach.
The historic building dates back to the end of the 18th century and has had many notable owners, the most noteworthy being the philosopher and historian, Adam Ferguson, who pioneered modern sociology and was a leader of the Scottish Enlightenment. To mark his residence an application has been made for the erection of a St Andrews Preservation Trust plaque.
The flat benefits from gas fired central heating backed up with partial secondary glazing. The building's main front door opens into a well kept communal hall which gives access to the stairs to the upper floors and to the ground floor's main front door. This opens into the bright hall where doors open to all accommodation.
The lounge/dining kitchen is a spacious room, well fitted with modern units, integrated oven, hob and fridge, and spacious enough for dining and lounge furniture. A door opens to the utility room which is to the rear of the property and houses the washing machine and tumble drier, freezer and the boiler. Also accessed from the kitchen is the cellar, comprising two rooms and may offer scope for development into further useable space if desired, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The two bedrooms are to the front of the property with large south facing windows, built-in cupboards providing plenty of storage and the larger bedroom has beautiful ornate cornicing to the ceilings. The shower room is fitted with corner shower cubicle, w.c. and wash hand basin and has a tiled floor. The property has been very well maintained and cared for over the years and comes to the market in excellent order. An early viewing is recommended.
