Television presenter puts house on market
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.
