4 bedroom bungalow for sale

Property Details


Charming detached 4 bedroom family home at Redcastle, Angus, an easy commute for Dundee or Aberdeen.  Set in a tranquil location, with one of Scotland’s most beautiful beaches - Lunan Bay - on the doorstep, this kind of property is rarely available.

Situated in a large well-established garden (over 1000m squared) and with a quaint double garage converted from the 19 th century cottages which were originally on the site, this property is full of character.  A wide driveway provides ample parking for several cars. 

The house includes a host of luxurious features.  The kitchen was fully refurbished in 2010 to an exceptionally high standard.  Large windows face West, across rolling fields to the village of Inverkeilor and beyond towards the Angus glens.  Next to the kitchen is the dining room, like most of the rooms in the house, having windows on two sides, it is a lovely bright area with solid wood flooring.  Here French windows give onto a delightful patio area, ideal for family barbecues and entertaining. 

Through to the front of the house is the main lounge, again with windows on two sides, with more lovely aspects of the garden which surrounds the house and arable farmland beyond that.  This spacious room features a Jatoba solid wood floor and fireplace with wooden mantle and attractive tiling.    Also on the ground floor are a family bathroom and three bright double bedrooms; master with en-suite and all with built in wardrobes. The spacious and bright hall, again with solid wood flooring boasts a feature spiral staircase, up to a grand loft conversion.

Moving upstairs, the loft conversion comprises a large lounge/recreation area, with windows to the front looking onto the picturesque Red Castle ruin and Lunan Bay, and Velux windows to the rear, affording more fine views of the surrounding Angus countryside. There is fitted carpet throughout the upstairs rooms.

The upstairs lounge is adjoined by a large study, with space for two ample work areas.  French windows here give onto a delightful balcony, with decking and a decorative wrought iron balustrade: another lovely place to relax and enjoy the sumptuous views to the south.  At the other end of the upstairs lounge is a spacious modern bathroom and lastly a large bedroom, featuring built in wardrobes and a magnificent picture window looking down towards Red Castle mount and over the hills towards Montrose.    

Every room in this beautiful well-maintained home is decorated to a high standard with double-glazed windows and panel radiators, centrally heated via an oil-fired Worcester boiler.  The house is in the catchment for the excellent village school at Inverkeilor (primary), from which children progress to Montrose Academy or Arbroath Academy (secondary), as preferred.

Viewing of this rarely available property is a must.

Double garage : formed from the conversion of original 19th century cottages on the site, this is a picturesque slate roofed building.  Inside, in addition to space for cars, there’s plenty of room for gardening equipment, bikes and so on. 

Garden (over 1000m squared): Wrought iron gates open onto the driveway.  The perimeter of the property is marked by a range of trees to north and south and hedges to west and east. The garden has been landscaped for easy maintenance with lawns featuring a variety of shrubs and trees.  The garden also incorporates a few flower beds and a patio stretching the full length of the house at the rear.


The house is reached by taking the Kirkton Road towards Lunan Bay from Inverkeilor (which is located between Arbroath and Montrose on the A92).  At the T-junction (approximately 1.5 miles from Inverkeilor) turn left; The Bear’s Den is on the left about 200 metres down from the junction.  See the satellite image at:
