Listed Arts & Crafts House set in large garden in exclusive private road
Cryanreuch is a late Arts and Crafts Voysey style villa. It is harled and painted white with sandstone window cills, tall brick chimneys and a pantile roof with overhanging eaves.
It was built for Colonel Hugh Morris Allen by Donald Mills of Mills & Shepherd with the original plans dated 18th April 1924. Mills and Shepherd contributed extensively to the architecture of St Andrews. The house is a good example of their work and uses characteristic materials of brick, harling and pantiles. Internally they used a significantly lighter coloured oak with more delicate moulding and detailing, than in their other houses. The minstrel's gallery that overhangs the staircase is an unusual feature.
The present owners have upgraded three of the bedrooms adding new bath or shower rooms and have created a new kitchen / family room to complement the fine, original reception rooms. There is a sophisticated security system throughout the premises. The accommodation comprises:
