Superbly restored house in mature private garden
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.
The drive from Hepburn Gardens leads to a gravel sweep to the north of the house. There is a car port on one side and planning permission to build a triple garage with flat above on the opposite side.
The main gardens are to the south of the house. The gardens comprise various terraces, a large lawn and a woodland area leading to the gate into the Lade Braes. The terraces combine to offer extensive outdoor living and entertaining space including, outdoor kitchen, sitting area with stove, hot tub and large log cabin with wood burning stove.
