If proposed stamp duty and taxation changes are to be implemented north of the border, it may soon be the case that buying a house in Scotland is far cheaper than in England. This does not mean that there are not expensive, luxury properties available for sale in Scotland, but more that the price of these homes will be controlled and maintained by government measures. Properties in the affluent G44 region are particularly expensive, and there are others that will cost buyers a huge amount of money.
With this in mind, here are three of the most expensive properties available in Scotland and what they offer to potential buyers.
The Eilean Aigas Mansion, £3 million
The Eilean Aigas mansion is a new-build property that is set in obvious luxury, and buyers will be forced to pay-out an estimated £3 million if they hope to purchase this. It is just four miles from the picturesque village of Beauly, while Inverness is the nearest ‘large-scale’ town and represents a short, 15-mile journey by car. Boasting a luxurious interior and at least six ornate bedroom suites, the property is ideal for young families and provides an idyllic location in which children can grow and develop.
The Tower of Lethendy, £4.6 million
Located on Perthshire, this lavish, £4.6 million property is a sports fan dream and features incredible amounts of land and open space. In addition to an indoor games room and snooker hall, the property also has its own, private swimming pool, both grass and clay tennis courts and a full-size golf course. This represents a sporting paradise, while even the most energetic of buyers will be pleased to note that there are also a large number of stylish designed bedroom suites and open-plan recreational areas.
The Press Mains Farmhouse, £7 million
Costing a cool £7 million, the Press Mains Farmhouse in Berwickshire is unlikely to be found on the sell house fast market any time soon. This is the type of property that will always retain its value, as it is only ever accessible to buyers with huge amounts of disposable income. Boasting a relatively quaint and rustic design, this mansion includes five cottages that are available for private rent and land that is split into three separate lots. Not only is this an expensive home, but it is also an acquired taste that may only appeal to older buyers.
