Downsize to Scotland’s Most Prestigious Postcode

Deemed a millionaire’s playground, St Andrews has once again scored the title of Scotland’s most sought-after location to set up home.

According to figures recently published by Bank of Scotland, the historic town has topped the list of prestigious addresses for the second consecutive year – with the average house price at Golf Place coming in at a whopping £1,975,000.

It’s fair to say that this sum pulls a bit too hard on many people’s purse strings, but don’t discard your dream of settling by the sea just yet.   


Above Par Living

You don’t need to pay the expensive price tag in order to be in walking distance of the Home of Golf.

Just a short journey from the fairway you’ll find The Walled Gardens – 78 spacious apartments tailored towards downsizers and those enjoying their golden years.

Featuring one and two-bedroom properties, the development offers those over the age of 55 spacious surroundings that have been designed to make day-to-day-living as hassle-free as possible.

From the moment you travel down the manicured lawns of the development, you will know that you are somewhere special.

Luxury really doesn’t have to break the bank.


Designed To a Tee

Each apartment has been built to detailed specification, keeping in mind the changing needs of residents.

Secure, safe and energy efficient, the properties benefit from premium brands throughout, such as Villeroy & Boch, Alno, Hansgrohe and Bosch, and come fully carpeted with light fittings - all ready for you to move straight into.

Although you won’t have as many rooms as your previous family home, the apartments do have ample floor space and have plentiful storage to keep clutter at bay.

With a vibrant community of residents, the golden stretch at East Sands and the bustling high street on your doorstep, there is plenty going on in St Andrews to suit your lifestyle needs. 


Luxury Without the Price Tag

Jointly marketed by Rettie & Co. and locally by Thorntons, prices for apartments start at £180,000.

Savvy buyers can also take advantage of the innovative shared ownership scheme – offering buyers the chance to purchase 75%, with the option to buy the further 25% after one year residence.

An increasingly appealing option for people wishing to downsize and release equity for their retirement, the scheme allows you to get bang for your buck in what is Scotland’s most sought-after postcode.
