A HOUSE dubbed ‘The Royal Box of Golf” is up for sale for almost £4 million

The stunning property offers one of the most iconic views in the golfing world as it overlooks the 18th green at the Old Course in St Andrews.

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.

Grandstand view

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.
