About Shona Geddes

I grew up in St Andrews. North Star was my childhood home . I purchased the property in 2014 and renovated it totally in 2015.

Shona Geddes purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Shona Geddes chose Saint Andrews

North Star is the perfect base for families or groups of friends to explore the town and it's golf courses, beaches, history etc We often have former students and other attending weddings in the town, families on seaside holidays, groups of friends or extended families travelling and staying together.

What makes this apartment unique

There is a large open plan living area and kitchen making socialising easy (and stylish). Nobody wants to be shut in the kitchen whilst their friends have a glass of wine in the lounge or be unable to keep an eye on children whilst they prepare a meal (or at least I don't!). Add to that a large garden with seating for outdoor dining, comfy beds and modern bathrooms and the perfect central yet quiet location.

Great location, great home

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could ask for great location, great house with everything you could need. Shona even sets you up with all the essentials and more. We had coffee for the first morning, milk, orange juice, prosecco, toiletries and she even goes the extra mile with fresh flowers and a little carrot cake. Would highly recommend.
