One of Scotland’s premier residential and sporting estates with a renowned pheasant shoot is being presented for sale in Highland Perthshire. CKD Galbraith is marketing the truly outstanding Dungarthill Estate for offers over £5,000,000.
Located near Dunkeld, Dungarthill is an enchanting Scottish estate nestled amongst some of the country’s most breathtakingly attractive countryside. Situated at the estate’s heart is Dungarthill House, a fantastic example of late Victorian architecture and a spectacular family home.
The estate is renowned for its pheasant shoot with established drives. During the current ownership the shoot has been extended and developed to provide two consecutive days shooting with guests staying in the house. Dungarthill Estate also offers superb fallow stalking, roe shooting as well as trout fishing and duck flighting on the two hill lochs.
There is an extensive range of residential properties on the estate including, a thriving holiday letting business with five recently refurbished letting cottages, two staff cottages and nine other properties currently let on tenancy agreements.
The farming enterprise on the estate is run under a contract farming arrangement and the productive land includes about 180 acres of arable land, 195 acres of permanent pasture as well as rough grazing and woodland grazing.
Dungarthill House itself is thought to have been built as a wedding present in 1886 by a Mr Cox of the renowned jute manufacturers, Cox Brothers of Dundee. The property has been fully refurbished and is presented to a very high standard. Suitable for accommodating a party of eighteen or as a convenient and practical family home, Dungarthill House is an extremely elegant property – featuring two bedroom suites, eight further bedrooms, several delightful reception rooms and a billiard room.
Simon Brown, of CKD Galbraith, said:
"Dungarthill is a rare opportunity to purchase a multi-purpose Scottish estate with a spectacular main house, several successful business enterprises, superb sporting pursuits and ample development opportunities all within a ring fence. The estate sits in a 'bowl' and this unusual positioning affords the estate privacy and seclusion, whilst Dungarthill House is hidden by its mature gardens and trees. The current owners have done a great deal to modernise and sensitively refurbish the estate’s properties and develop the holiday lettings business. Estates of this calibre are in short supply and will undoubtedly attract attention from across the UK as well as from international buyers keen to purchase a premier Scottish estate."
Although enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the majestic Highlands, Dungarthill is very accessible with the main A9 road giving swift access both north and south. Edinburgh airport lies only some 55 miles away and offers regular flights to London and to other major European cites. The bustling city of Perth is around 15miles to the south and provides a range of amenities and facilities.
