Property description

One bedroom ground-floor flat


4 Links Crescent is situated in the row of substantial Victorian villas to the south side of the main road into St Andrews which runs parallel to The Links and the famous Old Course. The entrance to the Royal & Ancient Golf Club offices is diagonally opposite and Golf Place, the street which leads to the 18th Green of the Old Course, the Royal and Ancient Clubhouse and the West Sands Beach, is just beside.

The property is just 400 ft from the 18th fairway of the Old Course and is ideally placed for access to the other golf courses operated by The St Andrews Links Trust, as well as the West Sands beach, the university and all the shops, pubs and restaurants in North Street, South Street and Market Street. The University of St. Andrews is one of the oldest in Britain (founded in 1413) and attracts students from all over the world.

St Andrews is renowned worldwide as the home of golf. There are now seven golf courses at St Andrews including the Old Course, regular host to the Open Championship which will next be staged there in 2022. There are many other golf courses in the area including two courses at St Andrews Bay, The Dukes Course, Kingsbarns, Crail and Elie.

The Royal Burgh of St Andrews has several primary schools and good state secondary schooling at Madras College and private co-educational schooling at St Leonards. Dundee High School is within easy reach. The town has a good range of shops, hotels, restaurants and supermarkets, a cinema and the Byre Theatre.

Beyond St Andrews is the East Neuk of Fife with its spectacular coastline which boasts fishing villages built around picturesque harbours and sandy unspoilt beaches. Leuchars railway station (4 miles) is on the main Aberdeen to London line and connects to Dundee and Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport, with its range of domestic and international flights, is only 50 miles away.


Kildonan was a substantial semi-detached Victorian sandstone villa built in 1898 for Provost Murray of St. Andrews, an acquaintance of Old Tom Morris . Kildonan was subdivided in the late 1940s into three flats - Nos 4, 6 & 8. No. 4, which comprised the whole ground-floor, became known as Kildonan House.

Kildonan House was subdivided into two flats (4 and 4A) in the early 1970s with No. 4 being retained by the current owners. No.4 was then subdivided into separate flats – 4 and 4B - in 1989. It could easily be reconverted into a substantial single dwelling (subject to the necessary local authority consents).

4 is a well located flat extending to 529 sq ft / 49m2. It has an entrance corridor and hall with mirror-fronted wardrobes/storage. The sitting room has a bay window and wooden floor. There is a bedroom and a shower room.

The kitchen is well fitted with floor and wall cupboards, a cooker with gas hob, a dishwasher and washing machine.

The flat has use of the lawn or drying green which is shared with 4A and 4B and enjoys its own garden beds on both sides of the entrance pathway.

4 Links Crescent is currently let with vacant possession being available in June.

4B Links Crescent is also available to purchase for offers over £450,000. Please contact Savills for further information.
