Holiday Rental House
New for Late 2018/19 Sleeps 8 - Stunning is a frequently overused word in the holiday market but in the case of 'Cryanreuch' it is wholly appropriate. This is a magnificent house set in wonderful gardens and located less than 5 minutes’ walk from the first tee of the Old Course. The house is a fine example of Arts and Crafts architecture and benefits from a generous horseshoe drive to the front with ample parking for four cars. Once inside, the ground floor has a spaceous hall, a gorgeous drawing room with dining room off, a modern kitchen with “snug” area, a library/study, a utility room, a cloakroom and in the old servants quarters a bathroom. All rooms are tastefully decorated, and the principal public rooms contain many pieces of Asian art.

There is a lovely timber staircase with a minstrel’s gallery leading to the first floor of the house. Here there are four bedrooms, three with en-suite facilities.There are two double bedrooms and two with either twin or king size options. 'Cryanreuch' is a fabulous base for your golf pilgrimage to St Andrews being only minutes from the Old Course or it would make a splendid venue for that special family gathering. In fact, whatever the reason for your visit, this is a fantastic house to stay in. Cryanreuch is a very special house. Windmill Road is a quiet cul-de -sac just off the main road into St Andrews and the house occupies a large corner plot with extensive private garden grounds. You can almost see the 18th fairway of the Old Course from the front gate and the 1st tee is no more than 5 minutes walk. Built in the mid-1920's it is a fine example of the Arts and Crafts style of architecture and many of the house's original features remain intact but the house is also bang up to date offering all the modern services you would expect. The house is set back from Windmill Road with access taken via a horseshoe drive which has ample parking for at least 4 cars. Through the front door is a small porch from which you take entry to the main hall of the house. Ground Floor Off the main hall there are a number of rooms:- Drawing Room, this is a gorgeous room with views over the garden. The room is sumptuously decorated with an open fire and comfortable seating. Directly off this room is the formal Dining Room which has been elegantly furnished and provides a marvellous venue for that special meal. Also off the Hall there is a Cloakroom and the Library/Study which provides an alternative space in which to relax. The Library is beautifully furnished and here there is a large TV and BluRay disc player. There are patio doors leading from the library to an outside terrace and seating area. Moving through the Hall towards the kitchen you pass the Butler's Pantry which has a separate fridge/freezer. Beyond this lies the modern kitchen with its separate 'snug' seating area complete with TV and Sky box. The kitchen has a range cooker and all of the appliances you would expect to find. There is a breakfast bar with comfortable stools and there are patio doors leading to the rear garden. Off the kitchen are what would have originally been the maid's quarters there is a basic bathroom and a utility room with clothes washing and drying facilities. First Floor Access to the first floor is via a fabulous timber stair complete with minstrel's gallery. There are 4 bedrooms off the upstairs landing, 3 of which are served by their own en-suite facilities. There are two double bedrooms and two that can be either twin or king size double. The entire house is both beautifully decorated and very well equipped. The outside areas are made up of the most beautiful landscaped gardens with extensive lawns and gorgeous permanent planting. There are lovely outside terraced spaces for those pre or post dinner drinks or that morning coffee taken whilst reading the paper or iPad! All in all this is a house that needs to be experienced.
