UNDER OFFER - C listed, 8 bedroom Country House requiring complete renovation in grounds of over 3 acres including a listed walled garden
Interactive virtual tour:
Chesterhill House was built in 1870 with the west wing being added in the years between 1893 and 1912. It is in a Tudor-Italianate style and is C listed. It has a number of distinctive architectural features including castellated parapets and a square plan tower. It is situated in a secluded sloping site surrounded by woodland. A feature of the property is the finely constructed oval walled garden to the northwest, which is also listed. The walled garden predates the existing house and intact gardens of this style and age are relatively rare in Scotland.
The original house which stood on this site was home to successive Dundee merchants as Newport on Tay was popular since they could travel to and from their business via a steamer across the Tay. It is thought that the original house may have burned down and Chesterhill House was built to replace it.
Chesterhill House has been uninhabited for some years and is in need of complete renovation. The accommodation, extending to 5300 ft2 (492.37 m2) is laid out over three floors and an attic. Due to the condition of the property, a Home Report is not required.
Planning Permission and Llisted Buildiing Consent was granted on 5th September 2019 to alter and extend the property including restoration of the walled garden. The application includes a provision to demolish a section of the house. (Planning Ref. 18/02806/FULL; 18/02807/LBC).
