The ultimate golfing bolt hole has gone on the market in St Andrews. 9A Gibson Place is one of only a dozen residential properties alongside the 18th fairway of the Old Course.

Just yards from the Swilken Bridge with views across the 1st and 18th fairways and out towards West Sands, the location of this pad is tough to beat for lovers or our great game.

Set over two floors with two large reception rooms, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, 9A Gibson Place is being marketed by Savills with an asking price of offers over £1,500,000. The hefty price tag reflects the unique situation of this property, and the fact it has been beautifully refurbished by the current owners – American golf writer George Pepper and his wife Libby.

In the upstairs drawing room, from a writing desk overlooking the links, George penned numerous pieces including his famous book, “St. Andrews Sojourn: Two Years at Home on the Old Course.”

The lower ground floor living space is a fantastic, open plan kitchen and living room with a glazed door in the bay window leading out, through a gate, onto the world’s most famous links.

Properties along the 18th fairway very rarely come on the market and this one is sure to attract international interest.
