HeraldScotland:

New luxury homes have been released for sale at Dalnair, marking the next phase of development at the estate, which is located near Drymen, near Loch Lomond.

The site at Dalnair Castle, which dates from 1884, Castle View comprises six five-bedroom luxury homes, formed around a small exclusive cul-de-sac.

This also marks the coming to market of the penthouse apartment in Dalnair Castle itself, which has its own private roof terrace and is the final available home in the ten-apartment building.

Since its purchase by FM Group in 2016, the castle has been extensively refurbished and the most recent phase follows the successful sale of luxury homes in the Walled Garden of the estate, which comprised four five-bedroom detached houses.

The generously proportioned detached homes come in two different styles - The Oak and The Beech - and are set in extensive private grounds, on the edge of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.

Priced from £725,000, each house-style offer impressive open plan living accommodation, five bedrooms, separate home office and several en-suite facilities.

Castle View occupies an elevated, tree lined setting surrounded by rolling fields and countryside close to the banks of the River Endrick and neighbouring hills. The development lies at the left of a sweeping, tree lined driveway, also leading to Dalnair Castle, located at the edge of the village of Croftamie.

The three-bed penthouse apartment of Dalnair Castle is formed over three levels, with a choice of lift access or the beautifully detailed, formal staircase. At a fixed price of £650,000 it occupies a top floor position offering a home with not only outstanding views but impressive proportions and specification too.

The open-plan lounge/dining/kitchen has dual aspects through three large windows facing south. It also has a 900 sq ft roof terrace.

Robert Croll, Sales Manager for FM Group, said: “Not only are we releasing a new phase of luxury homes for sale in the estate grounds, but our exquisite penthouse in Dalnair Castle, with its own private roof terrace, is now on the market. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for purchasers to live in luxury in a stunning location with magnificent views over the surrounding countryside, at a truly affordable price.

 “Despite its rural parkland setting, on the edge of world-renowned Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, Dalnair Estate is highly accessible, and both Glasgow and Stirling can be reached within a mere 25 minutes.”
