Sarah Young, the current owner of 6 Pitreavie Castle, said: “The castle recognised for its architectural importance, so it really is a stunning place to live.

“It has all the splendour of period living in extensive parkland, with the added bonus of contemporary fixtures and an excellent location.

“For us, it’s been a great family home. My husband and I both work from home a lot so the study is perfect for shutting yourself away.

“As a family, we like to cook and to entertain too, so having the dual aspect kitchen and living room is perfect for that.”

6 Pitreavie Castle also benefits from a private gated courtyard, which basks in the morning sun, offering buyers some added privacy.

Sarah added: “Our courtyard acts as a perfect suntrap in the mornings, making it a lovely place to sit and have breakfast while taking in the surroundings.

“There’s a small community of residents here at Pitreavie, with owner occupied houses in the stables and castle – everyone knows everyone, it’s like a little village!

“Our children have loved growing up with big bedrooms and the luxury of nearly four acres of grounds to run around in.”

Michelle Brownlee, Estate Agent at Warners Solicitors and Estate Agents, said: “This is such a unique home with amazing history – it’s not the sort of property you see on the market often.

“The location is ideal, too. It’s got excellent transport links into the city centre, helping to strike that perfect balance between county living and city life.

“So those interested in 6 Pitreavie Castle are recommended to book a viewing as soon as possible as it is unlikely to be on the market for long”.
