Sweeping beaches, turrets, and walks round castle grounds, it sounds more like a holiday than a place to live.
The Georgian wing at Lauriston Castle could see you living in what was once a royal fortress, with the stunning St Cyrus on your doorstep and Aberdeen only a half-hour commute.
This unique three bedroom home is priced at £1,300 per month and offers elegant family accommodation with an exciting past.
The wing comes unfurnished but has recently been redecorated in neutral colours, and many of the period features remain.
The drawing room has atmospheric high ceilings and an open fire, and you can just imagine curling up on a winter’s evening.
The kitchen has been fully fitted and is open plan with the dining room, where there is a solid fuel stove.
In keeping with the history is a walk-in larder, just another reminder that this isn’t your average home.
Units in the kitchen bring extra storage and the dining area is currently a blank canvas, meaning it could become a wonderful entertaining space.
The utility room also has storage and all the necessary plumbing for a washing machine, alongside a stainless steel sink.
A double bedroom can also be found downstairs and has a charming fireplace, meaning it could be used as a further living area.
A shower room is on the first floor and is well equipped.
Upstairs there is a double bedroom which has stunning sea views with new carpet recently laid and a fire place adds extra character.
A quirky interconnecting door is reminiscent of the old days and leads into a further double bedroom which also has sea views.
If you really want to be king of the castle you can even have your own dressing room.
The family bathroom has a roll-top bath completing the accommodation upstairs.
There is a small enclosed garden which is private from the rest of the grounds and perfect for relaxing in, but you’re spoilt for choice with 10 acres of land to enjoy, including a ravine garden and woodland.
Parking is provided on the driveway for two cars.
