Quietly set on the south-west side of St Andrews, in the popular hamlet of Denhead, Summerhill is an outstanding house standing in a wonderfully peaceful, secluded location on the edge of the Duke’s Golf Course. With excellent far reaching views over the surrounding fields and countryside, this charming, tranquil area is just a short distance away from all the buzz and energy of the vibrant centre of St Andrews, and is also very close to the leafy grounds of Craigtoun Country Park. The Duke’s is a stunning parkland golf course with superb views over St Andrews and is owned by Kohler Company, who also own The Old Course Hotel.

Denhead is a quiet hamlet on the edge of St Andrews, very secluded and peaceful, but which is close enough still to enjoy all the benefits and amenities of the “Auld Grey Toon”. St Andrews is renowned worldwide as the “Home of Golf” and 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 – the 150th anniversary event returned to St Andrews in July 2022. St Andrews Links Trust have seven courses in the town, and other nearby courses include the acclaimed Dumbarnie, Kingsbarns, Dukes, Crail, Lundin Links and Ladybank. St Andrews is also well known for being an ancient and historic university town and the superb mix of amenities, sandy beaches, golf courses, shops, cafes, and restaurants that the town boasts are all within easy reach. The city of Dundee is some fourteen miles to the north with Edinburgh easily accessible to the south. The East Neuk is nearby with its quaint picturesque fishing villages, whilst the bustling former county market town of Cupar is a short drive to the west. Surrounding St Andrews is some particularly fine countryside and coastline with a lovely mix of farmland, woodland, rivers, and hill ground, which provides an excellent choice for the outdoor enthusiast with walking, cycling, sailing, and riding all readily available. In terms of days out Tentsmuir, Kingsbarns and Elie are a short drive away and offer good sandy beaches and walks, in addition to those found at St Andrews itself. National Trust for Scotland properties in the area include Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit and Falkland Palace. State schooling is available locally, with independent schooling being provided at St Leonards in St Andrews and the High School of Dundee. Rail transport links can be found at Leuchars (6 miles), Cupar, Ladybank and Dundee. Dundee and Edinburgh airports are also well within reach.
