Property description

Offered for sale freehold for the first time in nearly 300 years the castle is a Grade B Listed property set only three miles from the city centre of Edinburgh. Built originally by William Adamson in 1542, it was transferred through a number of owners before John Strachan, Writer to the Signet acquired the castle and left it to Craigcrook Mortification Trust in 1719. During its time the castle has played host to a number of famous visitors.
The original design set out a tower house that has been extended and adapted throughout the years. The castle is set over 3 storeys and includes a stunning round tower that offers views of Costorphine Hill, Blackhall and The Firth of Forth.
In recent years the castle has been let on a long lease for commercial purposes and in the 1970's a single storey L shaped annex building was added to the eastern wing of the castle. Since this period the castle has been used as offices.

Located to the south eastern corner of the plot the stables are an attractive stone built 2 storey building that lends itself to conversion toa a large garage with potential for staff or guest accommodation above (stp).

Located at the entrance to the castle, the gate house is a modern building with 2 bedrooms, again offering scope for redevelopment (stp).

The castle is set within extensive grounds of more than 4 acres with landscaped gardens, a small area of mature woodland and the original walled garden.

A hidden gem close to the city of Edinburgh.

The property is currently assessed as offices and has an EPC rating of G.
