About Us Eastacre

Eastacre are a St Andrews based multi award winning property developer.

We specialise in high quality, luxury properties in the heart of Old Town St Andrews.

We are a customer facing company and pride ourselves on our customer service and hands on approach to our business.  All clients will work alongside one of the partners when making decisions around a new home, and the partners will work closely with any purchasers on keeping them up to date with how the project is going.

We are extremely proud to be able to say that we have grown and suceeded often by either repeat business, or via our existing clients personal recommendation.  Not something too many property companies could promote.

The Ultimate Pride In ownership

Eastacre are very proud to work alongside many local St Andrews professionals and to engage where possible local trades to work on our developments.  We take great pride in our developments and our attention to detail when planning our projects, and indeed during the entire process.

We have extensive experience in the property development industry and have completed many projects over the years.  Our mission here at Eastacre is to provide "The Ultimate Pride in Ownership".


"We’ve bought two properties from Eastacre in the last few years and have been delighted with both of them. In fact one of them has received multiple awards for its striking and innovative design. Iain and Mark have both been extremely professional incorporating design changes to meet our personal specifications. Their after care service has been first class."

"I bought a flat in the listed St Nicholas House from Eastacre in September 2012 and received the keys in late December the same year.

Iain and Mark did a great job of converting the former school building into luxury flats. They were very professional and answered all our communications promptly and made sure that the flat was finished to our complete satisfaction.  They were very attentive to any minor snagging issues we had, both pre and post completion of our purchase.

I run the flat as a holiday rental and we use it ourselves a lot. It has been a great investment. Our guests share our love of the flat and we have many 5 star reviews to testify to the latter.  We are always heavily booked out and have many repeat guests. 

It is a great family holiday home where we have had many happy times with friends. We love the sympathetic conversion of the former St Leonard’s boarding accommodation, the generous proportions of our flat and it’s superb location. It’s a perfect holiday home for our family.

We remain delighted with our property nearly five years later, which speak volumes for the quality of the materials and workmanship overseen by Iain and Mark."

Alison Brown

"I purchased a new house developed by Eastacre on West Burn Lane in St. Andrews in 2015.  The house is stunning and the fact that the whole development won several awards is a testament to Mark and Iain's vision and ability to deliver in the middle of a lovely old town.  We have lived in the house for nearly two years and really appreciate the quality of the design, materials and building, it has surpassed our expectations.  Mark and Iain have been very easy to deal with, straightforward and responsive in dealing with the transaction and a couple of minor snags.”  

Chris Brinsmead CBE

"From first meeting to final handover, Mark and Iain at Eastacre were a pleasure to work with.  Knowledgeable and friendly, all of our interactions were truly focused on our family’s needs as Eastacre’s clients.  Their decision to use local craftsmen and materials sympathetic to the building was a real plus point for us, and the end result is a beautiful apartment and a cherished home."
