6 Balone Steading is an outstanding, spacious single storey family house standing in a wonderful quiet secluded leafy setting close to the Duke’s Golf Course at Mount Melville on the western outskirts of St Andrews. This charming tranquil property is just a short distance away from all the buzz and energy of the vibrant centre of St Andrews, and is close to the popular grounds of Craigtoun Country Park. From 6 Balone Steading it is a delightful walk into central St Andrews along the Fife Pilgrim Way, through areas of woodland and along the medieval Lade Braes. The nearby Duke’s Course is owned by Kohler Company who also own The Old Course Hotel. It is a stunning challenging parkland course with superb views over St Andrews.

Balone / Mount Melville is a quiet, hamlet-style area on the edge of St Andrews. Whilst enjoying all the benefits of the town, the house is away from the noise and traffic of the lively student areas whilst still being in easy reach of all the fantastic amenities of the “Auld Grey Toon”. St Andrews is renowned worldwide as the home of golf. There are now seven golf courses at St Andrews including the Old Course, regular host to the Open Championship which will next be staged there in July 2022. There are many other golf courses in the area including two courses at St Andrews Bay, Kingsbarns, Crail, Dumbarnie, Ladybank and Elie. The University of St Andrews is one of the oldest in Britain (founded in 1413) and attracts students from all over the world. The town benefits from a cinema and a theatre. It provides good state schooling at the brand-new Madras College campus and private coeducational schooling at St Leonards. The High School of Dundee is within easy reach. Beyond St Andrews is the East Neuk of Fife with its spectacular coastline which boasts fishing villages built around picturesque harbours and sandy unspoilt beaches. Leuchars railway station (4 miles) is on the main Aberdeen to London line and connects to Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport is only 50 miles away.


Beautifully presented and deceptively spacious, 6 Balone Steading is a wonderful family house offering comfortable high quality single storey accommodation with many delightful features. The flexible accommodation features two lovely well-proportioned reception rooms, interconnected with glazed doors, along with beautiful well-appointed kitchen / dining area which is very much at the heart of this charming property. The spacious main bedroom has en-suite facilities, with three further bedrooms, family bathroom, hall, wc and utility room completing the accommodation. With double glazing and mains gas central heating, as well as a gas fire in the sitting room, 6 Balone Steading offers comfortable very flexible contemporary family living in a prime location.

Early viewing is advised.


The well-stocked enclosed front garden at 6 Balone Steading is a joy, being of a good size and with a neat lawn and a lovely mix of plants, trees and shrubs. To the rear of the house are two sheltered courtyards ideal for alfresco dining / BBQ’s.

There is a single attached garage with electric up and over door, along with ample parking.
