3 bedroom townhouse for sale

Property Details

Balfour Place is located at the harbour of the historic university town of St Andrews, adjacent to the cathedral and the town centre with all its amenities. The world famous championship golf courses and beautiful beaches are only a short walk away. The sale of St Rules Boatyard is a rare opportunity to purchase either one or all three of these magnificent and uniquely situated townhouses. The houses were constructed in 2012 and were designed to maximise appreciation of the outstanding sea views over East Sands beach and St Andrews harbour. Whilst each property is individual in design they all follow a similar layout. The main door opens into a spacious hallway at ground floor level which offers access to the individual studio apartment, the integral garage and to the stairway which rises to the upper floors where the maisonette apartment is found. The studio apartment comprises a room with integral kitchen and ample space for a desk, dining furniture and bed. There are built in wardrobes with mirror fronted sliding doors, and French doors which open to the delightful waterside garden. There is an en-suite shower room fitted with stylish suite comprising large shower cubicle, wc, sink, vanity units, heated towel rail and mirrored cabinets. The maisonette apartments occupy the first and second floors of the buildings, and their elevated position commands outstanding sea views. At the first floor level is the exceptionally large open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge, and on the second floor are the two double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, and the family shower room. The open plan living space is a particular feature of these beautiful properties. Cleverly designed to make best use of large windows to both sides, the rooms are bright and spacious, and finished to a high standard, with oak flooring throughout. Patio doors open to the balcony and in addition a door opens to the external spiral staircase which leads down to the waterside garden. Views from the lounge and balcony stretch across the bay of East Sands beach and north to the harbour, the pier and the Angus coastline in the distance. Early risers can enjoy watching the sun rise over the water. A gas stove creates a heart to the seating area of the lounge. The kitchen is fitted with an abundance of high quality wall and floor storage units, integrated oven, hob and hood, fridge freezer and dishwasher, and opens to the dining area, where large windows open to the Juliet balcony looking towards the west. From this room an open wooden staircase rises to the second floor. The bedrooms are all spacious double rooms, all with fitted cupboards or wardrobes providing storage. The shower rooms are extensively tiled and equipped with high quality and stylish suites comprising large shower cubicle, wc, sink, vanity units, heated towel rails and wall mounted mirrored cabinets. The bedrooms to the east side of the property enjoy the exquisite views over the beach, bay and harbour. In number 11, the bedrooms also have the added pleasure of cathedral views to the north. To the outside, the properties all benefit from secure parking in a large driveway, accessed by way of high privacy gates. An electric roller door opens from here to the garage, which is a spacious are with room and plumbing for the washing machine for the studio apartments. To the rear, the courtyard garden is available for use by the occupants of both the studio and the maisonette apartments. An area of decking is positioned next to the studios patio doors, and the remainder is laid out with pebbles. Privacy is provided by way of wooden panel fences, and a low wooden gate in the stone wall opens to the ladder down to the water for boat access. The garden at number 11 also enjoys an outlook to the harbour. The properties have been successfully let since construction, achieving £2,135 each per calendar month during the university year. Leases are in place for all 3 properties until 31st May 2018 and there is enormous holiday letting potential, making this an ideal investment opportunity.
