Beautiful Georgian mansion house in 58 acres with fishing, equestrian facilities and cottage.
The earliest records of Drumquhassle date back to 1654 and the map published by Blaeu of the Lennox. It is thought that the original castle may have stood in wood to the north west of the present day house. By the 17th century the great Cunningham family of Strathendrick was on the wane and Drumquhassle was transferred to the Govanes a society family of landed gentry and rich Glasgow merchants. Whilst there are no available records when the old house on the site of Park existed, records confirm the new house was built to replace it in 1839.
The sundial and dovecot in the grounds of Park have dates of 1710 and 1711 and it is thought that the construction of the house was likely to be marked and celebrated by the erection of the sundial.
After 1870 the Park was leased to various tenants until 1919 when the house was extended with the addition of a new wing.
Today Park of Drumquhassle Estate extends to approximately 58 acres in all. There is salmon and sea trout fishing on the River Endrick, superb equestrian facilities, resident roe deer, red squirrels and the opportunity for occasional pheasant, duck and geese shooting. There is also a variety of historic trees, flora, fauna and exceptional birdlife.
The property whilst grand and striking in appearance is a superbly balanced family home. Six bedrooms, five bathrooms and four spacious reception rooms create a natural flow throughout. Open fires, decorative cornicing and sash and case windows provide the character, whilst the improvements made in the kitchens, and bathrooms give individuality and modern comfort.
Within the accommodation there are a number of excellent practicalities such as the home office. A fully equipped prep kitchen, boot room and walk in larder as well as the cold store with original slate shelves. A self-contained annex with its own private entrance.
The upper floors offer superb views across the policies and being nestled at the end of a beautiful tree lined driveway the property is wonderfully private.
In addition, there is a three-bedroom self-contained cottage and outbuildings which have been upgraded and well maintained.
Park of Drumquhassle benefits from excellent equestrian facilities including an all weather outdoor arena, four large loose boxes, feed room, rug store, tack room with washing facilities and heating, internal horse wash-room with hot water and solarium.
