About this property

  • Century House is a Category C Listed Arts & Crafts house which dates from 1908. The house has a wealth of traditional features such as an imposing tower overlooking the gardens and crow stepped gables which are reminiscent of Scots Renaissance architecture.

    The house has been extended and upgraded considerably by the present owners. The new living/kitchen/dining wing which opens onto an expansive, south facing decked terrace with outdoor kitchen adds a real wow factor. This is complemented by an impressive reception hall and a magnificent double drawing room. There is a study, WCs and useful store rooms and utility rooms behind.

    The principal bedrooms are on the first floor. The master bedroom has a stunning, en suite bathroom below the tower and two dressing rooms. The three further bedrooms on this floor all have their own bath or shower rooms.

    There are three further bedrooms on the second floor, two bathrooms (one en-suite), a gym and a large attic store with water tanks and hot water cylinders. A charming spiral staircase beside the turret bedroom leads up to a tower with battlements above, from where there are stunning views over St Andrews.
