Powrie Castle For Sale
Castles are often massive, rambling properties that you could lose yourself in - many only comprise of a couple of truly habitable rooms. Old Powrie Castle however is a slice of history on a very manageable scale.

It dates from the early 17th century and was built as the northern range to the original keep, (which is believed to date from the late 15th century). The castle, which is stone built with a slate roof, was in ruins until being fully restored in 1977 when a National Trust for Scotland competition was held to design a plan to restore it. The lucky winner was actually awarded ownership of the castle and made a fantastic job of creating this unique and comfortable family home packed with character.

Powrie Castle boasts many original features - vaulted ceilings, large original fireplaces, the original bread oven, shot holes, ambries, arrow slits, leaded windows with lower shutters, studded doors and Renaissance windows, a tower and turret room.

Although not large, it is ideal for entertaining with large rooms and good sized gardens which lead to the original keep. It boasts three bedrooms, three reception rooms, a kitchen (the original bakehouse) and an attic room and is just three miles from the bustling city of Dundee.
