Property Details

DESCRIPTION A rare opportunity to acquire a unique apartment within a Castle. Pitreavie Castle is a Category A Listed Building built in the early 17th Century and sits in approx four acres of grounds between Rosyth and Dunfermline. The Castle has been painstakingly converted into superb apartments in recent years. The accommodation has been freshly decorated and a credit to the present owners, it briefly comprises entrance vestibule leading to a hugely impressive sweeping carpeted staircase taking you to the flat entrance at first floor level. Small internal hallway with two stairways lead up to the accommodation. The main staircase to the upper level leads to a generous bright hallway and the property boasts two well proportioned double bedrooms, impressive living room overlooking the beautiful gardens with feature fireplace and kitchen. There are a few steps down in the turret taking you to the stunning four piece bathroom. Extensive communal grounds surround the castle incorporating woodland, lawns, ponds and a summer house. Two allocated parking spaces and visitors parking. A ten minute walk or short drive to Rosyth Railway Station provides direct access to Haymarket Station in the heart of Edinburgh within 30 minutes. EPC RATING D. 

LOCATION The Royal Burgh of Dunfermline is of considerable historic interest and is the resting place of King Robert the Bruce. Carnegie's Birthplace museum, the Abbey and Abbot House reflect the historic interest of the City, whilst recent developments have seen Dunfermline move into the modern era with Carnegie Museum and Library. Dunfermline is located approximately five miles from the Forth Road bridges and is therefore particularly popular with commuters to Edinburgh and many parts of the central belt with easy access to the M90 motorway with its direct links to Edinburgh, Perth and Dundee and across the Kincardine Bridge by way of motorways to Stirling, Glasgow and the West. It benefits from a full range of shops, social and leisure facilities and educational establishments associated with a modern City. The local railway stations provide a regular service to Edinburgh with intercity links to other parts of the UK. There are regular and convenient bus services both local and national. 

HISTORY OF PITREAVIE CASTLE You would be acquiring your own bit of Scottish history as the Pitreavie Estate was once owned by Robert The Bruce who gifted it to his sister Lady Christina Bruce in the 14th Century. The Castle sits close to the site of the Battle of Pitreavie fought on 20th July 1651 and much later in 1938 was sold to the Air Ministry and used to coordinate operations for the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force Coastal Command before becoming the headquarters of NATO North Atlantic Area after the Second World War. Winston Churchill visited Pitreavie Castle twice during the war.
