WELCOME TO ABBEY PARKStylish homes in one of the world's most attractive locations
We chose a peaceful setting for our elegant townhouses and stylish apartments: close to the seafront, within the grounds of Abbey Park with its orchard and mature trees. Nevertheless, the development is only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, with the smooth expanse of East Sands Beach within strolling distance.
The Georgian-style townhouses have large, beautiful rooms in a layout that flows seamlessly through the three floors. Each home has five bedrooms; a private, landscaped back garden; and its own double garage mews at the rear of the property.
The two- and three-bedroom apartments – and the two charming main door cottage apartments that flank the building – have bright and spacious rooms in clever layouts. Externally, the building’s elegant frontage has crow-stepped gables, traditional dormers and stone-and-render feature turrets to reflect its historic setting.
A location you'll fall in love with
The friendly coastal town of St Andrews harbours contrasts that capture the imagination and make you want to stay for a lifetime. Part of its charm is that despite being a cosmopolitan centre with a myriad of international influences, St Andrews retains the community spirit of a small Scottish town.
The town is full of energy: gowned students rush between lecture halls and coffee shops, tourists and locals mingle in the bustling streets, and joggers pound the windswept miles of West Sands beach.
At the same time, a gentler pace is easy to find: in the quiet quadrangles, gardens, spas, fairways and parklands of St Andrews, time slows down a little. St Andrews is home to some of the country’s finest examples of medieval architecture, and its castle and cathedral ruins, fortified gates, chapels and towers provide a framework for the town’s distinctive character.
An opportunity to explore
For a town centre that measures less than a mile across, St Andrews offers an astonishing array of places to shop, eat, drink and enjoy yourself. Its narrow alleys and cobbled streets are packed with quirky bookshops, galleries, markets and restaurants. Away from the town centre, miles of delightful paths wind through forests, across sandbanks and along cliffs.
A space to play
St Andrews is known the world over as the Home of Golf, and has become a place of pilgrimage for professional golfers and enthusiastic amateurs alike. The famous Old Course is only one of 11 great courses in the area, and from specialist shops to golf museums, the love of the links permeates the area. But don’t think for a minute that golf is the only game in town: from skydiving to horse-riding, via beach kayaking and traction kiting, there’s no shortage of adrenaline rushes.
A backdrop for romance
As if castle ruins and beach sunsets weren’t romantic enough, St Andrews has been bathed in a rosy glow since becoming the setting of a real-life royal romance; that of Prince William and Kate Middleton (now Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge), who both studied here. The couple joins the ranks of the one in ten St Andrews graduates who marries a fellow alumnus.
A seat of learning
St Andrews is Scotland’s oldest university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world. It has an immense influence on the life of the town: during term-time, students from 120 countries make up a third of the town’s population. One of the UK’s most prestigious academic institutions, St Andrews has earned a world-class reputation for its teaching and research, which ranges from the discovery of new planets to crucial advances within medicine and literature.
A place to call home
We have put a lot of thought into the specification of our Abbey Park development, making sure that the Georgian-style townhouses and elegant apartments have fixtures and fittings that are as stylish as their surroundings. Traditional skills are used alongside modern materials to create homes that are thoughtfully designed, solidly built and beautifully finished. This top-of-the-range quality, combined with an unrivalled location, make an Abbey Park home a joy to live in.
