A farmhouse full of potential for development has been brought to the market.
Presented by Bell Ingram, Carlungie Farmhouse near Carnoustie is a substantial and imposing traditional farmhouse which has retained many of the typical features expected in a house of this period.
The farmhouse has a sense of its original grandeur with an impressive tiled floor entrance leading through to the hallway which is dominated by the original timber staircase.
Requiring modernisation, the Farmhouse provides an opportunity to create an impressive and modern family home within the existing traditional structure.
The former maid’s quarters to the rear have the potential to provide separate guest accommodation or alternatively an expansion back into the main structure of the farmhouse.
A solid door opens into the entrance vestibule which has a beautiful tiled floor and a window to the side. A glazed door with decorative etched glazing and side panels gives access to the reception hall and the impressive staircase, with carved newel posts, has a mid-landing lit by a decoratively glazed window.
There are three spacious reception rooms providing ample family space. The large dining kitchen has access through to an array of ancillary rooms including two pantries, laundry, and storeroom.
From here a rear staircase leads up to the original maid’s quarters where there are two bedrooms. Also on the ground floor, and accessed from the main hallway, are a cloakroom, utility room and a bathroom together with an external door to the courtyard.
On the upper floor in the main part of the farmhouse are four further bedrooms, a dressing room and a bathroom.
There is a substantial red sandstone building extending to over 200 m2 (2152 ft2), measuring approximately 14m x 14m. It offers immense development potential subject to obtaining the necessary Planning Consent.
A glass and timber framed potting shed leans against this outbuilding.
There are three detached stone buildings with slate roofs. These formed a game larder, a laundry house and a tool/coal/wood store with a gardener’s WC.
The farmhouse enjoys a south-facing position and sits within its own garden grounds which are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees to the front, extending to about 0.76 acres in all.
The sweeping driveway leads to ample parking to the front and rear, in addition to a small brick garage with a roller door. Also within the garden is a timber summer house on the east side of the grounds.
The farmhouse, originally forming part of the historic Panmure Estate, lies in an area renowned for the quality of agricultural land.
Carnoustie, seven miles to the south east, is well known for the Carnoustie Golf Links that often hosts the Open Golf Championship. The town offers a range of amenities including shops, services and recreational facilities.

The Farmhouse is in the catchment area for Carlungie and Burnside Primary schools and secondary schooling is at Carnoustie or Monifieth High Schools. Private schooling is available at the High School of Dundee, Lathallan near Johnshaven and St Leonards in St Andrews.
About 11 miles to the south west is the thriving city of Dundee, Scotland’s fourth largest. The city is home to the new and already renowned V & A International Centre for Design which opened in September 2018 which, in turn, sits next to Scott’s ship Discovery.
