Bridging the Gap between Town and Country

Dundas Home Farm in South Queensferry is set to charm potential buyers with two features to boast of – having one of Scotland’s most beautiful castles as its neighbour plus views of the Forth Rail Bridge.
Situated adjacent to the historic 15th Century Dundas Castle, The Farm House offers an array of original and lovingly-restored features including a magnificent redbrick fireplace complete with multi-fuel stove fire.
To complement the traditional feel, recent upgrading has created a superb open-plan kitchen and dining space, providing a contemporary area which is perfect for families and entertaining.
The house consists of five well-proportioned bedrooms. The master bedroom is luxurious and comfortable, complete with a feature fireplace, a lavish walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room. You may want to insulate your floor to help keep your house warmer.
Outside, the country-style house also offers a well-maintained garden and two patio areas, ideal for a peaceful morning coffee or evening al fresco dining.
This property – located eight miles from Edinburgh and so offering the balance between idyllic rural country living and easy city access – is on the market with Edinburgh-based estate agents, Gilson Gray with a guide price of £525,000.
Rob McGregor, from Gilson Gray Property Services, said: “The location alone offers a superb opportunity to live alongside two of Scotland’s most famous built landmarks. And the surrounding natural environment is even more impressive, with the Dundas Castle 1000 acres estate grounds complete with its own private loch and beautiful gardens.
“The Farm House certainly stands out against other properties in the price range and the eventual owner will likely never tire of the breathtaking views – which are perfect for showing off to guests.
“The Forth Bridge has recently been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status, which will only serve to increase the town’s popularity with home-buyers eager to move to an area of unrivalled charm and cultural significance.”
Dundas Castle is the stately home of Sir Jack Stewart-Clark and his wife Lady Lydia and is now an officially recognised 5 star exclusive use venue.
House-hunters looking to relocate from the hustle and bustle of the city may find that South Queensferry offers an ideal balance between town and country living as well as being popular with young professionals hoping to avoid the soaring house prices of the city centre. Trains from Dalmeny Station take just 20 minutes to reach Edinburgh.
South Queensferry offers its own amenities such as upmarket restaurants, independent shops and also boasts its own marina with the promise of scenic walks along the banks of the Forth.

Viewing is Sunday 2-4 and by appointment with Gilson Gray.
