60 North Street is a period terraced house with a symmetrical, cream painted front in the centre of St Andrews. Despite its smart exterior it is believed to have originally been used as a dairy when the house was built in the early 1800s.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors. A vestibule leads to a central corridor with the study and dining room on either side. The study has a tiled fireplace with solid fuel stove and a library area to the rear which has bookshelves on three sides and a deep cupboard. Adjoining the dining room is a family room which connects to a kitchen in the extension behind.
A rear hall has a glazed door to the garden and further deep cupboards. Stairs lead up to the first floor landing. There is a fully tiled bathroom at mezzanine level. The drawing room is on the first floor and has a tiled fireplace with wooden mantel and recessed shelves. Also on this floor is the principal bedroom which has extensive built in wardrobes; bedroom 2 and a shower room.
There are two further bedrooms on the top floor, both with coombed ceilings and dormer windows. These also have built in cupboards.
To the rear of the house is a south facing walled garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a brick built open store and a former laundry used as a garden store.
There is a paved terrace in front of the outbuildings. Steps lead up to a private area of lawn at the bottom of the garden.
