Dunecht House / Westhill, Aberdeenshire

This is stunning — and while the price might be high — it’s perhaps not as high as you’d imagine for the 24-bedroom Dunecht House, Westhill, Aberdeenshire.

This is a stately home and then some. Sat within 1700 acres of designed landscape, Dunecht House was built in 1820, for William Forbes, whose family had owned the estate since the 15th century. The original square neo-Greek house was designed by John Smith, Aberdeen’s most prominent architect. In 1845, Dunecht was purchased by the 7th Earl of Balcarres. Two years later, it passed to Lord Lindsay, who remodelled the house using the architect that was working on Balmoral Castle for Queen Victoria.

Fancy it? Well, if the idea of a stately home appeals, £1,000,000 is the asking price. Not cheap, but it’s a lot of house for the money — via WowHaus
