THIS STUNNING Scottish manor house could be yours for just £2.55 million after coming on to the property market.
The six-bed Dowery House is located in a magnificent, secluded position above the small village of Ford just twelve miles from Edinburgh.
Images show the stunning exterior of the castle-like property, which features its very own turrets, and surrounding grounds which include a private tennis court.
Photos inside show a unique blend of old and new with some of the manor’s rooms retaining the property’s 17th century charm and heritage such as the stunningly panelled reception room.
On the other hand, more contemporary parts of the house reveal an ultra-modern kitchen and games room featuring a full-sized snooker table.
The Dowery House is a ‘B’ listed property with some parts dating back to the 1600s. Despite its imposing façade and castellations, the internal ambience is that of a family home.
The ground floor is home to a number of reception rooms including the Drawing Room, which opens out on to the patio at the rear of the property and allows access to a spacious Butler’s pantry.
Downstairs also contains grandiose Sitting and Dining rooms, lavishly decorated and both featuring stunning chandeliers.
Beyond the sitting room is a bar, cosily nestled in the corner of the property by a spiral staircase leading to the first floor.
The master bedroom can be found on the first floor along with three additional bedrooms, all generously kitted out with their own en-suite.
Beyond this, The Dowery House possesses a third-storey which houses the final two bedrooms in the property, including an unusual circular room.
Outside, the private drive sweeps round into the grounds and past the house, allowing visitors time to gasp in astonishment at the incredibly landscaped scenery.
The gardens are heavily populated with carefully thought out plants that come the summer months look spectacular alongside the ornamental pond.
If you wanted to get outside the gardens, then the area is well served for recreational pursuits. Vogrie Country Park, with its golf course and beautiful walks, is just a mile away, whilst several other notable golf courses are only a short drive.
There are also plenty of opportunities to shoot and fish nearby, with the renowned River Tweed right on the door step.
