The development features a penthouse with a private balcony boasting 180-degree views across St Andrews, the Old Course links and the coastline. All the apartments feature individual characteristics that have been preserved from the original 19th century building. Each apartment has a “white box finish” meaning the owner can be responsible for their own interior design for a fully bespoke finish.
