A little Dream Castle in Scotland for sale

The Dowery House is a magnificent 'B' Listed property. Part of the building is thought to date from the 1600s, although it has evolved with later additions. The panelled interiors date from the early 20th century when it became a dower house for nearby Vogrie House. It has an imposing facade, with castellations and turrets, yet internally the ambiance is that of a family home. The house has been comprehensively renovated by the current owners, modernising the accommodation whilst retaining its charm and character.

The Dowery House is situated in a magnificent, secluded position above Ford. This is a charming conservation village through which the River Tyne flows. Pathhead, half a mile, has excellent local facilities, including a bank, a post office, and a bakery. It also has a well regarded primary school. The property is only 12 miles from Edinburgh city centre and is therefore extremely commutable and well placed for the city's private schools.
The area is well served for recreational pursuits. Vogrie Country Park, with its golf course and beautiful walks, is only a mile away. All the golf courses of East Lothian, including Muirfield, Gullane, Luffness and North Berwick, are within approximately half an hour's drive. Shooting can be arranged on local estates and in the Lammermuir Hills, and fishing arranged on local reservoirs and the renowned River Tweed.
