A HOUSE dubbed ‘The Royal Box of Golf” is up for sale for almost £4 million
Situated within feet of the world-famous green, the balcony gives a grandstand view both of everyday play and the regular Professional Championships – including the Open Championship.
The ultimate golfing seat doesn’t come cheap though, with the asking price of a massive £3.75 million.
Located in what is known as ‘Millionaire’s Row’ the white-painted five-bedroomed Fife house is a distinctive Victorian terraced home which sits proudly between the Tom Morris golf shop and the private St Rule Club on The Links.
The much-sought after three-storey house is currently owned by five local businessmen who snapped up the property for just under £3 million.
It first came on the open market in 2004 when it fetched around £2 million after undergoing significant redevelopment before being repossessed by the bank.
The original owner of the house, which dates from 1872, purchased it for less than £5,000.
The house is within feet of the 18th green of the Old Course and its balcony gives a grandstand view both of everyday play and the regular Professional Championships – including the Open Championship.
The Open Golf Championships is to be next held next at St Andrews in 2010.
