Think you’ve seen all of St Andrews? A house tour by Susanna Burns reveals the hidden marvels of interior design found within the Bubble. 


With two of our student alumni now able to call Buckingham Palace home, it is no wonder that the student flats of St. Andrews look like mini-palaces. Popcorn ceilings have been replaced with crown moulding, retro shag carpeting with Persian rugs, and space heaters with working fireplaces. The following house is a good example of just how lucky we are to live in St. Andrews. Bell Rock House is the last house before the pier, and it features stunning views of the North Sea, three bedrooms, one garage, and – best of all – a laundry room. Recently renovated with hard wood floors and stone-surfaced kitchen counters, this beautiful three story house is home to two fourth year students. It has both a dining room and formal living room, in addition to a family room with a projector for watching cinema-sized TV. Rustic exposed beams run the length of the top floor ceiling, and, oh, did I mention there’s a laundry room?
