Live Your Dream Retirement at The Walled Gardens

The Walled Gardens is an exclusive collection of retirement apartments located in the heart of St Andrews.

Tucked away in an idyllic corner, the development bestows buyers with the chance for perfect retirement in a peaceful location, just a short stroll away from the historic town.

The apartments were designed for modern living and make for a perfect base for those looking to relocate or downsize to one of Scotland’s most desirable postcodes.

We caught up with our Sales Executive, Carol, to get an update on the final remaining apartments and what features and benefits come with acquiring a property at The Walled Gardens.

What has the interest been like lately?

"There has been a steady flow of interest in the last few months, with a number of new owners moving in. It is very satisfying to see new neighbours becoming part of The Walled Gardens community."

How many properties are left?

"There are only seven apartments left to sell, so this really is the last chance to act fast for those considering taking a step towards retirement living in luxury accommodation in such a beautiful location. There are four one-bedroom and three two-bedroom apartments left."

Where do you get the most interest from?

"Our selling agents Thorntons, Google searches and our website. Recent press advertising by Bield has also proved positive. Glasgow, Perthshire, Inverness-shire and Fife itself is where most of our enquires come from, including people with local knowledge and 'friends of friends'."

Would you downsize to St Andrews?

"Would I buy one? Absolutely. They are such beautiful apartments and the location offers quietness with the added benefit of being only a short walk from all the amenities of the town.

"St Andrews is the ‘Home of Golf’, benefiting from not only world-renowned championship golf courses but also beautiful beaches, the Botanic Garden, Byre Theatre, a leisure centre, restaurants and hotels. On top of that, there are many wonderful walks right on the doorstep."

What features and benefits would buyers at The Walled Gardens benefit from?

"St Andrews is a world-famous town where property prices are premium. The apartments at The Walled Gardens are purchased under the “Shared Ownership” scheme.

"Shared Ownership enables buyers to only pay for 75% of the property value, which can help those who may not be able to afford the full price, to purchase a luxury apartment. Alternatively, for those downsizing, it allows the owner to retain their money and choose how they use it. After one year, the owner has the choice of purchasing the remaining 25%, or indeed, remain as they are. It is their decision to make.

"All of the apartments come with integrated appliances and flooring and we also offer our fantastic Assisted Move package which is designed to help take away some of the worries and stress of moving to a new home.

"Bield Response 24 is another great feature that buyers can benefit from. It is a 24-hour emergency response service, designed to make life safer and provide reassurance in case of an emergency, for not only owners, but for their families too."
