£15.6m Hamilton Grand residential conversion unveiled
A £15.6m residential conversion of the Hamilton Grand, a former five star hotel, has been unveiled by The Kohler Co at the Old Course, St Andrews.

Overhauled by construction services firm ISG the work has seen 26 apartments inserted into the space together with a residents lounge, courtyard garden and rooftop amenity deck. A public bar and restaurant have also been created for golfers.

Overlooking the famous green the Hamilton Grand was opened as the Grand Hotel in 1895 with period features dating from this time; such as hardwood flooring, decorative plasterwork, chandeliers and a wrought iron balustrade.

Centrepiece of this effort is a roof mounted pepper pot dome, painstakingly recreated using authentic materials and techniques in place of a 1980’s fibreglass replica. Elsewhere the main entrance has been extended with two additional sandstone pillars inserted to match existing architectural details and hand-crafted external railings.

Properties boast high-end fitted kitchens, hidden ceiling mounted speakers.

Alan McCarthy-Wyper, managing director of ISG’s construction business, said: “Those wishing to own an exclusive home, rich in heritage in the heart of the birthplace of golf need look no further than Hamilton Grand. It is a great privilege to have supported The Kohler Co. achieve its vision for the property after being entrusted with bringing this iconic building back to life for future generations to come.”

Mmm, very exclusive + sparkly. My posh but tasteless granny would love it! She could pump out her Andre Rieu tunes from the 'hidden ceiling mounted speakers' and prepare her porridge in the high end (+and fitted!) much then?

Well, I suppose that they got the bathrooms at trade price.
