Lundie Castle is an attractive late Victorian property in Angus, Scotland, with a castellated façade and towers typical of the period, and accommodation laid out on a grand scale. There are many light, south-facing rooms with elegant proportions and a good deal of period features inside including wood paneling, fireplaces and plasterwork. New additions include early Victorian, Gothic chimney pieces in the library and drawing room and a 17th century marble fireplace in the dining room.
Upstairs the principal bedrooms lead off the wide, galleried landing and include a superb master bedroom suite and two guest bedroom suites. The fascinating tower room on the second floor has a viewing parapet and adds a touch of romance to the house.
Accommodation comprises: Entrance hall, reception hall, drawing room, dining room, music room, library, billiards room, sitting room, rod room, gun room, cloakroom, kitchen, butler’s pantry, larder, laundry room and box room.
Upstairs are the master bedroom suite and two guest suites, as well as six further bedrooms and two further bathrooms, and a sauna/shower. There is potential for a self-contained two-bedroom apartment.
Outside are the charming gate lodge and an excellent secondary residence, both of which would suit relatives or staff. The gardens are beautifully maintained and well stocked. The 19th century glasshouse has been restored and the walled garden has vegetables and an orchard within; to the north is Lundie Hill, a mixture of pasture and woodland which is bordered to the west by Lundie Loch and to the north by the West Water, a tributary of the River North Esk which is famous for its salmon beats. A small sporting enterprise here would include wild duck, snipe, pigeon and woodcock, in addition to any game reared.
Lundie Castle occupies a commanding south-facing site on the edge of the Grampian Hills with extensive views over Strathmore and is protected from the north by the beautiful Angus Glens. There are railway stations at Montrose and Laurancekirk on the East Coast Mainline and Aberdeen is 38 miles.
The guide price is £1,625,000. For further information please contact CKD Galbraith on 0131 240 6960 or visit www.ckdgalbraith.co.uk.
