1 Donaldson Gardens is quietly situated in a prime residential area close to the heart of Fife’s golfing Mecca of St. Andrews, accessed off Hepburn Gardens and close to the West Port, just minutes from the town’s thriving cosmopolitan shopping district which includes South Street, Market Street and North Street. The ancient and historic university town offers residents a superb mix of amenities and facilities and is renowned worldwide as the “Home of Golf”. The city of Dundee is some thirteen miles to the north with Edinburgh just over an hour to the south. Fife’s pretty East Neuk is easily accessible from St. Andrews with its quaint picturesque fishing villages such as Anstruther, Pittenweem and Elie, as well as its charming and varied coast line. Fife’s bustling county market town of Cupar is about fifteen minutes drive to the west.
Surrounding St. Andrews is some particularly fine countryside and coastline with a lovely mix of farmland, woodland, river and hill ground. The result is home to an array of wildlife which provides an excellent choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. There are many highly regarded golf courses in the area including the Old Course at St. Andrews and the Championship Course at Carnoustie, both of which regularly host the British Open. In terms of days out there are a number of good sandy beaches in the area including St. Andrews itself as well as Tentsmuir, Kingsbarns and Elie. There are several popular National Trust for Scotland properties in the area including Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. Good state schooling is available locally with independent schooling being provided at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Dundee with Edinburgh airport just over one hour from the property. The regional airport at Dundee offers a good range of short haul flights.
1 Donaldson Gardens has been in the same family since it was built around 1920 and comprises a lovely substantial detached house with attractive extensive garden in a lovely quiet setting close to the centre of St. Andrews. The house retains many delightful period features and is of an attractive harled exterior under a red pantile roof. The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with attic floor in addition, and benefits from mains gas central heating. At ground floor level the accommodation comprises lovely sitting room, formal dining room, kitchen, laundry with store rooms off, main entrance hall, vestibule and cloakroom. There are five bedrooms at first floor level (one of which benefits from en-suite facilities) and a bathroom with separate w.c. A staircase leads on to the attic floor where there are two further rooms. Now in need of a degree of modernisation and upgrading, 1 Donaldson Gardens is a beautiful family home with many delightful features and offering significant potential.
