Description


Dollarbeg Castle is a Scots Baronial castle designed for Henry Dobie by Ebenezer Simpson of Stirling around 1890. In 2007 the castle was developed by Manor Kingdom into ten luxury apartments. No. 7 is entered at first floor level and its accommodation is principally on the second floor. The apartment is situated to the front and side of the castle with views over the formal communal gardens and the Ochil Hills beyond. A particularly impressive feature is the exclusive ownership and use of a roof terrace atop the square tower, the highest point of the castle from where there are stunning views. The sitting room has two corner turrets with windows.

The high quality refurbishment of the castle is clear to see, evidenced by the high quality fixtures and fittings throughout including the kitchen with granite worktop surfaces and integrated appliances, contemporary bathroom and en suite shower room, integrated sound system and entertainment system with individual controls throughout the accommodation which allow Sky, radio, CD and DVD to be enjoyed. The floors in the hall and sitting room are oak, and there are oak doors, facings and skirtings. The property is fitted with an alarm system, gas central heating and new timber sash and case double glazed windows.

Residents of the castle enjoy the use of about five acres of communal formal gardens and grounds. There is a large driveway and sweep providing residents' parking.



Accommodation


A private entry phone system gives access to the castle's original entrance hall which immediately makes a truly impressive statement with highly decorative ceilings, contrasting decor and an oak staircase with mid landing leading to the first floor.

The first floor entrance hallway to Apartment 7 has an oak floor and a storage cupboard, and there is a staircase leading up to the sitting room on the second floor.

The sitting room has an oak floor and twin turrets with windows. The sitting room opens to the kitchen which is fitted with base and wall mounted units with granite worktop surfaces, inset 1½ bowl sink with mixer tap, and concealed lighting. The integrated appliances include double oven, gas hob, cooker hood, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer. The kitchen has a tiled floor and space for a small dining table and chairs.

The master bedroom has a turret with a window, and there is a built in double wardrobe. There is an en suite shower room with WC with concealed cistern, wash basin, shower, tiled floor and wall tiling to dado height.

There is a second double bedroom with a high ceiling and ornate cornicing which is currently dressed as a formal dining room.

The family bathroom comprises WC with concealed cistern, wash basin, bath with shower above and screen, and extensive wall tiling.

A turreted staircase leads firstly to a cinema room/office, and then continues to a third double bedroom with an elevated outlook. The staircase continues to the top of the tower, opening out to a private roof terrace with an impressive vantage point with a wonderful outlook over the grounds, the Ochil Hills and beyond.
