59 South Street is part of a row of traditional terraced houses situated in the heart of St Andrews. The town is renowned worldwide as the ‘Home of Golf’. The Old Course is a regular host to the Open Championship which was last held there in 2015. There are now six further golf courses run by the St Andrews Links Trust, including the Castle Course opened in 2009. There are many other golf courses in the area including the Duke’s Course, two courses at Fairmount, St Andrews Bay and Kingsbarns.

St Andrews is also well known for its university which is one of the oldest in Britain, founded in 1410. The town provides good state schooling at Madras College and private schooling at St Leonards, and Dundee High School is within easy reach. The town has an excellent range of shops, hotels, restaurants and recreational and cultural facilities. Beyond St Andrews is the East Neuk of Fife, with a spectacular coastline which boasts fishing villages built around picturesque harbours and sandy unspoilt beaches.

Access by rail, road and air is good. Leuchars railway station (4 miles) is on the main Aberdeen to London line and provides a fast link to Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport, with its increasingly wide range of domestic and international flights, is only 50 miles away and Dundee Airport (15 miles) has regular services to London Stansted. There is a dual carriageway and motorway connection to Edinburgh from Kirkcaldy (20 miles). An alternative route is via Cupar on the A91 to join the M90 at Junction 8 (25 miles).

The house was remodelled by locally renowned architect George Rae in 1866 and his crest remains above one of the windows. Rae’s most famous contribution to St Andrews was phase one of the R&A Clubhouse although the world famous building now bears little resemblance to his original design. He also designed a hotel in 1868 which is now St Regulus halls of residence for St Andrews University. His neoclassical style is identifiable throughout St Andrews with examples at Greyfriars Gardens, Gillespie Terrace, North Street and Bell Street.
