House of Craigie, Craigie, KA1 5NA
Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold property with Corum
‘House of Craigie' represents a rare opportunity to acquire a lovely Georgian country house and five courtyard cottages surrounded by exquisite gardens and generous grazing paddock. The current owners have meticulously maintained and upgraded the main house and created the five charming cottages from the original outbuildings adjacent to the main house.
The property was built circa 1746 and has been owned by the Duke of Portland, Sir James Finlay Muir of Braco Castle, Perthshire and at the end of the 20th century Lady Sarah Collins of the publishing family.
The main house provides extensive, flexible accommodation over three levels with notable features and benefits including the indoor swimming pool, bespoke kitchen with Aga, open fires in the drawing room and formal dining room and Jet master open fires in the games room and family room. In addition there are a plethora of retained period features including the cantilever staircase, cornice work, parquet floors and sash and case windows.
In summary the accommodation of the main house extends to, on the ground floor, a welcoming reception hallway with cloakroom and wc off, drawing room, formal dining room, kitchen, family room, games room, laundry room and rear hall giving access to the swimming pool with two toilets and showers. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have a Jack ‘n' Jill en-suite. On the second floor there are four further bedrooms and two further bathrooms.
Externally there is a gated driveway which approaches to the front of the house. The gardens and grounds extend to approximately 7 acres in total with a grazing paddock of approximately 4.5 acres. The gardens are a credit to the current owners with flowing lawns, mature trees and well stocked shrubbery borders. To the western boundary of the grounds is an all weather tennis court in excellent condition. The five cottages have a separate entry and parking.
If the potential buyer would like to extend further, there is also planning permission in place for an additional terrace of 3 two bedroom cottages at the bottom of the courtyard which could provide extra accommodation
