Wilson House, 27 Argyle Street, was brand new to the rental market late summer 2017. It provides a stunning central base for up to 5 people and is located near St Andrews' West Port. Wilson House is a south facing compact town house sleeping up to five people.
Having had a year of rentals now we can say it is a squeeze if you opt for the maximum of 5 adults in the house. The kitchen table can extend to seat 5 or 6 but is best as a smaller rounder table for 4 as you have more room in the kitchen. If you are a family of 5 with children then you will all fit in fine. Most groups tend to be of 3 or 4 adults.
The house is on two levels and has a small courtyard with table and chairs out the back, there is also a lockable store in the courtyard.
On the ground floor you have the kitchen/diner with washer/dryer and then a twin bedded room with en suite shower room.
Upstairs you have a single bedroom next to the King (UK King is 5ft wide) bedroom, the sitting room and a further shower room shared by the single and the king room. Both bathrooms have underfloor heating and heated towel rails. Please note, these stairs are relatively steep - so bear that in mind if you have a group incorporating the older and younger age groups.
The house is a traditional town house, full of character with varying door heights and widths. We have free wi-fi and the full Sky TV package upstairs in the sitting room and downstairs in the kitchen. Travel cot (bring own bedding), baby bath, and high chair available if requested/booked.
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.
It is only one minute’s walk from St. Andrews' 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.
