A magnificent privately owned castle in a lovely situation on the Solway Firth, Scottish Riviera, with access to beautiful secluded beaches and sea views, currently a fabulous private residence, but equally suited to being run as a hotel, in a great location just 40 miles from the English border and 90 miles from Edinburgh and Glasgow.
It has permission and water certificate to run as bed and breakfast. Room costs per night are from £150 per room. It has fire doors and fire alarms.
Listed grade B, it is only the outside of the building that it affected.
Built in 1880 on the site of a manor dating from the mid-Eighteenth Century, the property was fully renovated in 2006 and refurbished in 2016. It is currently residential but has been a hotel and school in the past. It is ideally suited for weddings (especially with its proximity to Gretna Green), and various other uses within the hospitality industry.
The castle sits in five acres of grounds, including, gardens, woodland and paddock, plus access through fields behind the house leading to a most private beach for walking, riding, sailing etc. Ideal for lovers of equestrian pursuits with stables in the grounds and direct access to riding/walking through the back gate across fields, into forests or onto the beach. The beach can be used as an all weather menage.
Glorious views, overlooking the Solway Firth to the rear and mountains to the front.
The property comes with over 40 rooms spread over 4 floors and a turret room ( formerly a recording studio). It has 25 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms and around 10 various reception rooms, with additional outbuildings. It also has a cinema with real cinema chairs, table tennis, library and art room.
There is a grand staircase which leads to the 1st floor from the Principle floor.
All of the ceilings are high, even the ones on the 3rd floor. The lower ground also has bright rooms and high ceilings.
It makes a tremendous family home and would suit 2-4 families to live there or may be changed into apartments, making around 10, which could be sold from around £300,000 each.
There are over a hundred trees in the grounds, with mature landscaped gardens containing rare specimen plants and trees, including a flourishing Palm tree, benefiting from a wonderful and warm micro climate due to the Gulf Stream. It sits on the Scottish Riviera, known for its mild winter weather.
A wealth of history and character surrounds this property with, for example, working shutters, over 30 fireplaces and a grand staircase.
The house currently runs on full oil central heating and has 2 boilers bought within the last 2 years. The right wing is good for development and has central heating which just requires connection.
Offers considered in excess of 2,000,000 million pounds.
