Overview

About the property

Well appointed ground floor flat , close to shops, bars and golf

This property was brand new to the rental market in 2015. It provides a calm and comfortable oasis near St Andrews' West Port. 23 Argyle Street is a ground floor south facing flat sleeping up to three people. Its sumptuous interior is designed to sleep two but there is an option for a 3rd guest to use the generous sofa bed. It is centrally located, only one minute’s walk from St. Andrew’s West Port. On arriving at the West Port you will instantly be amongst the bustle of the shops, bars and cafes of this lively university town. The flat is about 5-10 minutes walk from the first hole of The Old Course and because of its location all parts of town are easily accessible on foot. A minute or two in the opposite direction of the West Port you will find the Lade Braes which offers leafy walks beside the Kinness Burn.

The flat has the original front door to the whole building and is all on one level with high ceilings. The property has one large bedroom at the back of the property and a sunny south facing sitting room/dining area with bay window street side. The beautiful round dining table can seat up to four and we have one large sofa in the bay window and another medium size sofa alongside. The TV is 43 inch and is the latest Sony Android with Youview. The flat also has broadband. The bathroom contains a large walk in shower with a low profile tray. There is a robust good quality sofa bed in the sitting room for a child/guest (bedding supplied). Travel cot (bring own bedding), baby bath, and high chair available if requested.

Parking - If you are lucky you can get parked for free opposite the property but it should be noted that parking is available in the 2 Argyle Street car parks very close to the property - £3.80 per day or you can park nearer the tennis courts for free. The parking area you see through the bedroom window is strictly a private car park for residents of the nearby Argyle Court.

Local activities in and around St Andrews, Central Scotland: St. Andrews has a wealth of historic monuments to visit. Wander around the University quadrangles and museum and really feel the sense of history that envelops you. St. Andrews has built its name on golf and the town and surrounding area will not disappoint.

Once outwith St. Andrews head off to Crail via Kingsbarns and the scenery will enchant you. Visit Kingsbarns golf course, as a player or a walker you will find the surroundings breathtaking. Move on to the fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther, Pitenweem and discover the harbours, pottery and art exhibitions in these seaside towns. Carry on down the coast to Elie with its award winning sandy beaches and take time to draw breath in The Ship Inn down at the harbour.

About Mrs Suki Stobbs

Having been a student here at St. Andrews it is good to continue my links with the town. I was born and brought up in Scotland and property is my business and holiday lets are part of that business. My husband Tim was born and brought up in St. Andrews so is keen to promote his town to the wider world.

Mrs Suki Stobbs purchased this apartment in 1960

Why Mrs Suki Stobbs chose Fife & St Andrews

This property were originally part of my husband's family business - Wilson & Co. - whose brewery premises used to be out the back across a courtyard.

We have refurbished the interior space to create an 'upmarket' holiday let so that many visitors can enjoy the town from close quarters. It never ceases to amaze me what a draw St. Andrews is to visitors - and I hope in providing this type of accommodation I can enhance the visitors' experience.

What makes this apartment unique

I think it is great to be so close to the town centre so that you can walk everywhere. This property and the one next door are top of the range with an interior designer influence.

Five Star

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best apartment we stayed in on our month long trip. The decor was lovely. It was immaculate and very well equipped. Location could not have been better. The management company was wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about it except that I wish we had of been able to stay longer.
