Full description


18 Queens Terrace is an impressive period property, dating back to 1902. It is located in the heart of the historical university town of St Andrews, only moments walk from the town centre with all its amenities, including shopping centre, fine dining and theatre. The world famous championship golf courses and beautiful beaches are only a short walk away. Despite its convenience, it is in a quiet location towards the end of a cul de sac, with almost no passing traffic.

St Andrews itself is also very well situated. There is easy access to other parts of Fife including the beautiful coastal villages of the East Neuk, and is within commuting distance of other centres such as Dundee, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, with the mainline railway station only 4 miles away at Leuchars.

With spacious rooms over four storeys, the property offers flexible accommodation that could be utilised in a number of ways. It has in the past been run as a successful Bed & Breakfast business and with three of the five bedrooms benefiting from en-suite facilities, would still be perfectly suitable for use in this way once again. It however, would also be ideal as a magnificent family home.

The property has many fine features characteristic of its era, including lovely high ceilings, ornate cornice work, elaborate glazing, fireplaces, wall mural in the stairway, and bay windows to the South corners of the building. It benefits from gas fired central heating backed up with secondary double glazing throughout.

The propertys front door opens into the vestibule where a further door opens into the splendid hall. From here stairs rise to the upper floors and descend to the basement. At ground floor level are the grand dining room and drawing room, the latter enjoying a southern aspect with views over the garden and rooftops toward the countryside beyond.

Descending from the hall, there is a cloakroom equipped with wash hand basin and WC at the half landing point, and further living accommodation is found at basement level. The large dining country-style kitchen is positioned to the South side of the property with glazed doors opening to the large conservatory giving access to the garden. The kitchen is equipped with a Belfast sink, an integrated double oven and Diplomat Range stove with a six burner gas hob.

Also at this level is the laundry room, a modern family bathroom and bedroom five. There is an abundance of storage, having an under stair cupboard and large pantry.
At the upper levels are all further bedrooms, three of which en suite, and bathroom. All rooms and bathrooms have been sympathetically decorated to reflect the character of the era of the property and are presented in good order. They are all spacious and bright rooms, and two of which benefit from the views to the south over roof tops to the countryside beyond. Further storage is found on each landing within large built in cupboards.

The stairway is well lit from the large Cupula in the roof, casting natural light over the upper landing.

The property stands in beautiful and enchanting gardens. These are accessed from the front via a path around the side of the building and steps lead down into the utterly private and enclosed grounds. Immediately next to the house, access from the conservatory is a superb decked area, providing a sunny seating area. A path leads from here through an archway created by trees, following a red brick path to the bottom of garden, passing patios, ponds and water features on the way. At the very bottom there is a vegetable patch, a shed and a summerhouse.
