There is an array of shops and amenities to meet daily needs including boutique and independent retailers selling artisan produce and goods such as St Andrews Bakery, Mitchell’s Delicatessen, and Leuchars Quality Butchers through to well-known high street stores such as Sainsbury’s Local. Other popular retail destinations are Waterstones, Boots, and H&M. The property itself is conveniently situated within walking distance of Morrisons and M&S Food along with a local health centre. Thriving and cosmopolitan bars, restaurants, and cafès sit side-by-side offering fine dining through to casual lunches and drinks. Education at all levels is well-catered for. Positioned on the stunning east coast of Fife, St Andrews is the perfect location from which to explore the characterful fishing villages that make up this scenic part of Scotland including Anstruther, St Monans, Crail, and Pittenweem. Dundee to the north is a thirty-minute drive and Edinburgh to the south is approx. 90 minutes by car or just over an hour by train from Leuchars.

The ancient and historic town of St Andrews occupies a wonderful position on the east coast of Fife. Surrounded by picturesque countryside, woodlands, and beautiful coastline it offers much for the outdoor enthusiast with pleasant walk and cycle routes minutes away as well as opportunities for sailing, riding and days spent on the beach. There are world-renowned golf courses to enjoy including The Old Course at St Andrews and the Championship Course at Carnoustie. Residents can also discover nearby courses such as those at Kingsbarns, Crail, and Lundin Links. In addition to the breathtaking beach at St Andrews, there are several more to explore nearby such as those at Elie, Tentsmuir, and Kingsbarns, all of which are just a short drive. St Andrews Botanic Gardens, Museum, and Cathedral are just a few of the local attractions to explore and there are several National Trust properties in the area including Kellie Castle and Hill of Tarvit. State schooling is available locally and private options include those at St Leonards in St Andrews and at The High School of Dundee.
