About this property

  • The Mansion House has been known by a few names in its long history, starting out as Dollarbeg Castle when originally built in the 1890s. The magnificent Scots Baronial house was designed by Stirling based architect Ebenezer Simpson, as the main home for Victorian railway tycoon Henry Dobbie, described in the history books as a ‘gentleman farmer'. The impressive house served as a place to entertain a wealth of visitors and guests up until the 1930s when ownership was transferred to a hotel group, and the property converted into a hotel. In 2007 it was converted once more into ten luxury apartments with stunning shared gardens and grounds extending to about 5 acres.

    The Ballroom (1), is a magnificent and elegant ground and lower ground floor apartment situated off the castle's beautiful communal entrance hall which has stunning plasterwork and mosaic floor tiling. With an abundance of character features including high ceilings with decorative cornicing and solid wood flooring, (present throughout the apartment) The Ballroom also enjoys spectacular views over the surrounding shared gardens.

    The sitting / dining room has a wonderful outlook over the gardens and towards the Ochil Hills thanks to the large bay windows to the north and west. This impressive entertaining room is open plan with the kitchen which is separated by partial glass doors and overlooks the front gardens. There are fitted units with granite surfaces and Siemens appliances including oven and hob, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine / dryer, and microwave. There is also a cloakroom WC on the ground floor.

    The lower ground floor has an extensive principal bedroom suite with a large bay window overlooking the north gardens and towards the Ochil Hills when the trees are not in leaf. It has an en suite shower room and separate dressing room with fitted cupboards and shelving. The second bedroom has a door leading out into the gardens and a fitted wardrobe. There is a separate bathroom with bath and shower cubicle. Off the lower ground hallway is a boiler cupboard with ample storage space, and a further two store cupboards.

    The communal gardens and grounds at The Mansion House extend to about 5 acres. These stunning mature grounds are scattered with a variety of mature broadleaf and evergreen trees, shrubs and plants. The drive sweeps through the gardens to the front of the property where there is residents' parking.
