Contemporary living within a historic building.
In a bygone era the part of the castle that is now South Range was the grand ballroom. South facing views capture a wonderful vista of rolling countryside, the Carron water and a woodland valley which is a haven for wildlife and birds. Internally, the presentation is at a ready-to-move-into level, with high quality self coloured carpets, neutral decoration and most rooms enjoying an abundance of natural light. As you would expect from a property of this era there are high ceilings, large windows and panelled doors. Well suited for couples and families, there is a real sense of residents' community spirit within the castle.
The current configuration gives a wonderful feeling of space with generously sized accommodation throughout. The welcoming reception hallway gives independent access to the original and historic vaulted cellars. These rooms are extremely versatile and offer great scope for conversion to further accommodation. Accessed via an elongated hallway is the laundry room which offers great utility space and access into the sheltered rear courtyard. At mezzanine level is a cloakroom with a white WC and wash hand basin. On reaching the first floor, a superb large landing window has fitted window seats to take full advantage of afternoon sunlight. Most elegant is the south facing drawing room with extra height window to capture the stunning countryside views which include a 15th century doocot and ice house. A focal point of this room is the fireplace housing a coal effect gas fire which could easily incorporate a wood burning stove with the necessary alterations. Again the formal dining room has the same advantage of a large south facing window for further views. An upper mezzanine gives access to the dining kitchen which offers casual eating space and has twin aspect windows. A further floor gives access to the well appointed principal bedroom with en suite shower room and again this is a room which affords stunning views. A guest bedroom benefits from a south facing aspect, bedroom 3 has a large roof light and bedroom 4 with twin aspect windows is presently used as a study.

South Range at Fetteresso Castle has been brilliantly conceived and sympathetically converted, and the present owners have done a superb job in presenting the property with real panache and yet with great respect for the historic origins of the building.Fiona Gormley
