Full description

LESS THAN ONE HOUR AND A HALF'S DRIVE FROM EDINBURGH, THIS FANTASTIC SCOTTISH CASTLE SET IN 10 ACRES IS AWAITING ITS RESTORATION.

A once magnificent Scottish Castle in private grounds of circa 10 acres and in need of complete restoration.

Situated in beautiful countryside in a quiet and private setting, this once grand and imposing property offers a buyer the opportunity to create a truly unique and stunning Scottish country residence.

Cavers Castle is steeped in history and was most recently the seat of the Douglas family for over 300 years. In its day, the castle was a grand 64 room family residence sitting in grounds in excess of 100,000 acres.

Today, the castle sits in the centre of the approx 10 acre grounds. The grounds contain a large pond to the western extremity, and amongst the woodland to the eastern edge are the remnants of a curling pond.

Once a building of note in the Scottish Borders, all that remains of the Castle are the bricks and mortar of the five storey, south-easterly wing. Some of the walls are up to eleven feet in thickness and detail around fireplaces and cornicing still remain. Existing plans are available proposing the restoration of the Castle to a single dwelling family home.

The plans are to create a family home to a very high specification, with space, design and amenities to meet today's living requirements.

No formal application has been submitted, but the local planning department have indicated they would look favourably on the restoration of the castle and would consider the existing or new design plans.
