Property Description

Full description

This unique apartment has seen Kings and other distinguished guests banquet and party in its magnificent Great Hall. So, it is that incredibly rare home that can genuinely and historically be described as fit for a king.

Dalzell House is a baronial mansion and was the seat of the Hamiltons from 1600-1955. It was originally built for the Dalzell family who resided there from the early 1400s until losing it to the Hamiltons. The family lived there for 400+ years and it is a beautifully unique house with impressive 17th, 18th and 19th century extensions.
An opportunity to own a piece of significant architectural and local history, this A-listed property remained the home of Lord Hamilton until 1955 when the family relocated, gifting the house to the people of Motherwell. It became The Gresham School for Boys untill the late 70s. Then, during the 1980s, it was sympathetically developed into a series of 18 spectacular private apartments, many of which have retained superb features. The mansion is set within five acres of the most wonderful listed garden grounds blanketed by an array of exquisitely manicured lawns and inviting patio areas. The house is truly unique and must be viewed to appreciate the quality of the property and its surrounding environment, which includes breathtakingly beautiful wooded parkland.

One enters the main door into its elegant wood panelled communal hallway with barrel ceiling. The property is located on the first floor and is arguably one of the most impressive and important apartments within this magnificent building, incorporating the “Great Dining Hall” which is within the oldest part of the house, the original keep. Complete with stunning 16th century wood carved panelling, a “one off” solid crystal window and spectacular stone fireplace this Great Hall also has a “Pipers’ Gallery”. And, most importantly, is where the future King Edward and his Queen dined in 1888, as per the engraved scribing on the wall overlooking the enchanting, cobbled courtyard and original stone water well.

The current owner has achieved an awe-inspiring aura, curating each beautiful room with historic sympathy and incredible style. One must visit the property to truly appreciate the level of thought, consideration and attention to detail. As one enters the property you are transported back to medieval times.

In terms of accommodation, apartment 8 has two entries. Perfect for entertaining, “The Great Hall” can be entered directly from the staircase or from a second entry into a reception hallway. There are two very large double bedrooms (bedroom two is currently utilised as an additional sitting room). Both bedrooms have working fireplaces. There is a quite stunning bathroom with a striking solid copper roll top bath, traditional loo, wash hand basin and walk in shower. The accommodation is completed by a kitchen/family room with a large solid fuel burning stove, fantastic copper sink and exposed stone walls. The kitchen in turn has access to “The Great Hall” where there is a further library, wine cellar and generous walk in storage. There is also a stone spiral staircase. This really is a place of magic and mystery. In addition, the property includes original sash windows, gas central heating and a security door system. From the back door of the property there is a covered cobbled courtyard which leads to additional outside storage. There is also extensive garden grounds and the external estate benefits from a vast array of walking and running routes as well as a Japanese garden. Parking is provided by the way of two parking spaces and the property also has a private garage.

If there is a more historically stirring and aesthetically breathtaking property currently for sale in all of Scotland you may rest assured it is not available in this price bracket, nor in touching distance of it. We fully expect the fortunate new owners to enjoy this home for many long and happy years into the future.
