About this property

  • The Dunes was built in 1950 as an extension to the rear of Gillespie Terrace. The flat below forms part of Ardnith on Gillespie Terrace.

    The present owners bought the property in 2018 and fully upgraded it using Alasdair Graham of Gillespie & Scott Architects in Earlsferry. They improved the insulation, did damp proofing work, upgraded the interiors and redecorated internally and externally.


    The Dunes has a ground floor entrance and hall which connects to a south facing, paved yard. There are useful cupboards for golf club storage in the hall.

    The main accommodation is on the first floor with a bright landing above the hall. Off this is a shower room which is fully tiled, a utility room which has a WC and a kitchen. The kitchen has laminate flooring, fitted floor and wall cupboards and a breakfast bar. There is a sink, a Lamona electric hob with extractor hood, Liebherr freezer, Fridgedaire fridge and dish washer.

    A corridor leads to the sitting room in the centre of the flat with bedroom 2 off. The sitting room has windows on both sides and an arched display recess with cupboard below. Sliding doors give access to a dining room off.

    A corridor leads from the sitting room to the main bedroom which has sliding doors to a fully tiled bathroom with WC and washbasin and a screen to the shower, wet area and bath.

Local information

  • Gillespie Wynd is a lane off The Scores which is one of Scotland's iconic streets with its stunning setting overlooking the West Sands beach, the Royal & Ancient Clubhouse and the world famous Old Course. The views from the end of The Wynd out to sea over Martyr's Monument and the Aquarium are absolutely superb. Gillespie Wynd leads from The Scores between private gardens to North Street.
  • St Andrews is renowned worldwide as the ‘Home of Golf'. The Old Course is a regular host to the Open Championship which will next be held there in 2022. There are now six further golf courses run by the St Andrews Links Trust, including the Castle Course. There are many other golf courses in the area including the Duke's Course, two courses at St Andrews Bay and Kingsbarns.
  • St Andrews is also well known for its university which is one of the oldest in Britain, founded in 1413. The town provides good state schooling at Madras College and private schooling at St Leonards. Dundee High School is within easy reach. The town has a good range of shops, hotels, restaurants and recreational and cultural facilities. Beyond St Andrews is the East Neuk of Fife, with a spectacular coastline which boasts fishing villages built around picturesque harbours and sandy unspoilt beaches.
