Lor­raine’s £825k

Tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter puts house on mar­ket

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Court Reports - BY AMY HALL

A SEVEN-bed­room home, de­scribed as “one of the finest houses in Broughty Ferry”, has gone on sale. But can you guess who lives in a house like this?

The mag­nif­i­cent prop­erty is cur­rently owned by Scot­land’s own reg­u­lar morn­ing tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter Lor­raine Kelly (pic­tured).

Melfort, on Dun­trune Place in Broughty Ferry, has been put on the mar­ket by Sav­ills —with the firm ask­ing for of­fers over £825,000.

Lor­raine bought the prop­erty in 2010 and has since re­placed all the dou­ble-glazed win­dows, in­stalled an elec­tric Aga and the bath­room, mas­ter en suite and shower room on the first floor have all been re­fur­bished.

The home was orig­i­nally built in 1927 af­ter it was de­signed by Ge­orge C Morton of Bruce, Morton & Son, which was a well-known firm of lo­cal ar­chi­tects.

Al­though it’s been given a mod­ern makeover it still re­tains its orig­i­nal pan­elling, pitch pine doors and stair­case, pat­terned plas­ter ceil­ing dec­o­ra­tion, cor­nices and fire­places.

Sav­ills say: “The lay­out and pre­sen­ta­tion of the house are ideal for both mod­ern fam­ily liv­ing and for en­ter­tain­ing.

“The fin­ish and pre­sen­ta­tion through­out is ex­cep­tional.”

It boasts an im­pres­sive three floors and an in­te­gral garage, and the en­closed gar­dens have been de­scribed as “lovely” with two wal­nut trees and a cop­per beech.
