Thorntons invite you to become part of history and are delighted to bring to the market an enchanting and beautifully restored A-listed (Grade I), 17th century castle, set in fully enclosed private garden grounds. Powrie Castle is an inviting home with two impressive reception rooms, a generous dining kitchen, three bedrooms, a study, a turret/hobby room, a bathroom, and an en-suite shower room. One of Dundee's five remaining castles, the property boasts a rich history brimming with royal connections and comes with a scheduled monument in the grounds that dates back to the 16th century. The conversion and restoration of Powrie Castle won the Dundee Civic Trust Award and the current custodians have lovingly continued the restoration and upgrading of the building over the past 33 years, creating a welcoming historic home that is easy to maintain and in true move-in condition. Powrie Castle will appeal to a wide variety of buyers. Its compact footprint makes it an ideal family home, holiday home, or investment property. Its private and elevated situation, proximity (three miles) to the bustling city of Dundee (with direct airport, rail, and road links to London), and closeness to the world-class golfing locations of St Andrews and Carnoustie will attract local, national, and international buyers. The castle is filled with curated, quality items of furniture and historical pieces, and is available to purchase furnished by separate negotiation. The property is set in over 0.6 of an acre of fully enclosed private grounds. Brief History Powrie Castle's origins date from 1172 when King William the Lion gifted the land to Robert Ogilvie the Earl of Angus. The stewardship since has been dominated by two families: the Ogilvies and the Fotheringhams who owned the castle for 600 years between them. During this period the castle hosted King James IV and the owners corresponded widely with kings, queens and other royalty. For further information on this stunning Castle, please view the schedule.
