Netherton of Craigie, Craigiebarn Road, West Ferry, Dundee, DD4 7PL
6 bedroom detached house for sale
Offers Over £595,000


Netherton of Craigie was designed in 1911 by the unfortunately named architect William Careless for a well-known local family. In what is generally known as the “English Arts and Crafts Style” the house has strong design similarities to the well-known architects of the time such as C.F. Voysey, M.H. Baillie-Scott and C.R. Mackintosh. The house was listed in October 1991 by Historic Scotland.

The current owners have made great efforts restoring the house in the period style but at the same time sympathetically adding modern convenience to form what is now an exceptional and generous family home.

The location is ideally placed for easy access into central Dundee and Broughty Ferry with its excellent range of amenities including primary and secondary schools, supermarkets, shops, banks, restaurants, beachfront and harbour. Early viewing is recommended to appreciate what this exceptional home with overall versatility has to offer.
