1 Nelson Street is situated in a quiet residential area close to the heart of Fife’s golfing Mecca of St. Andrews, 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 house is only a short walk to the East Sands Leisure and beach. 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.

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.
