Tower House With Water Gardens For Sale
Fortesk Tower is a dramatic contemporary tower house which, despite its appearance, was actually built by the owners in 1995 in a distinctive architectural style typical of the period of James VI of Scotland.

Unlike houses of that era, this one is a comfortable six bedroom 21st century family home boasting double glazing, flexible accommodation and separate annexe. It also boasts a dungeonette and four turrets, and what it is lacking in antiquity is more than compensated for by the surrounding area which is positively steeped in history.

The nearby Aberlemno Stones reveal the importance of Pictish culture in the area, there was a Roman Camp on the other side of the river and the original Finavon estate, of which Fortesk formed a part, was important in medieval and Jacobean times, and was the seat of the powerful Lindsays.

Fortesk Tower sits on 13.5 acres of land which includes woodland, paddocks and a cleverly created and designed water garden, fed by a small burn running through the ponds.

Located at the foot of Finavon Hill in a lovely position with spectacular views, this property is only six miles north of Forfar and within easy commuting distance of Dundee.

A fantastic contemporary family home with all the character and none of the usual drawbacks of a 17th century property.
