Live like royalty with a luxury pad inside this historical Scottish castle
Fancy setting up home in a historical castle with its own tennis court and easy access to some of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes?
Now you can, and you don’t have to be a millionaire to live this particular dream.
A batch of new luxury homes have become available at Dalnair Castle, originally built for wealthy Glasgow merchant Thomas Brown in 1884.
The castle, which boasts a striking tower and arched doorway, forms the centrepiece of the prestigious Dalnair Estate – an idyllic rural landscape on the edge of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
Located outside the village of Croftamie, near Drymen, it sits in established woodland within an attractive parkland setting, with views over the surrounding countryside.
Its unique location, with easy access to the iconic West Highland Way and popular mountain walks, offers the ideal living place for those in search of a quiet and peaceful setting surrounded by nature, yet within commuting distance of Glasgow and Stirling.
Following a £3.3 million refurbishment project by FM Group, a number of two-bedroom flats at the historical property are now up for sale - with prices ranging from £325,000 to £459,000.
All of the apartments have en-suite bathrooms to the master bedrooms and come with full double glazing, gas central heating, Brooklyn kitchens and appliances by Siemens.
There is also access to a charging point for electric vehicles.
Sellers have described the new homes as a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” for house-hunters.
“We are very delighted to have brought this majestic castle back to life, providing an ideal opportunity for those seeking to live in the country,” said FM Group sales manager Robert Croll.
“The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated demand for country living and Dalnair is ideally located to address just that, but yet is within easy reach of Glasgow and Stirling.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for purchasers to live in luxury in a stunning location, at a truly affordable price.
“Dalnair Castle offers a unique setting on the edge of world-renowned Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
“It is an excellent location for those searching rural quietness without giving up on accessibility to bigger cities.”
