    Castle Grant is an important “A” listed 16th century castle set in mature garden grounds which enjoys stunning open views over to the hills of Cromdale and beyond. The castle was originally known as Freuchie Castle when it was occupied by the Comyn family but in 1694 the Grant family became the principal owners. The castle was significantly extended in 1765 with the addition of the east and west wings. The design for this was carried out by the Scottish architect John Adam.

    The Property
    Castle Grant has four main levels including a large basement and a two storey attic. On either side of the main castle are the east and west wings which form the u-shape and the raised inner courtyard. The main entrance to the castle is on the north elevation leading to the hallway. The current layout provides accommodation over the ground floor, first and second floors. The third floor, attic and second attic offer excellent further development potential subject to the appropriate permissions.

    Over the years there have been many improvements and additions such as wood burning stoves, en suite facilities, modern bathrooms and a fitted kitchen. The property has retained many of its original features and elegance and these are evident in many of the period rooms which include a ballroom, drawing room and billiard room. Many of the rooms enjoy beautiful open aspects of the local countryside and views over the gardens and pond. In the last year the castle has undergone a significant amount of work as part of a renovation programme and this is very much ongoing work in progress, providing the potential purchaser with an outstanding development opportunity.

    The property is situated in an area of mature parkland and surrounding woodlands and set in approximately 35 acres. There are several paths carved through the garden grounds, one leading to a large pond and wooded area.
