Beautiful Scottish mansion combines idyllic location with mod cons


The star of Double Jeopardy and Dolphin Tale and her racing driver spouse Dario Franchitti have reluctantly had put their restored Georgian mansion on the market.  The luxury property, located in Stirlingshire, is for sale because their seven pet dogs are now too old to make the journey from America to Britain.

The 44 year old actress was enchanted by the property the first time she saw it, even though it was uninhabitable at the time.

She told The Sunday Times Home magazine: ''It fitted that romantic picture and standard that had been set for me in terms of Scottish beauty.  We turned down the drive and walked into the house. I remember my first words, 'It's an absolute dump, I have to have it!' Then I added, 'I'm going to eat those words some day.' ''

The couple, who are based in Tennessee, spent five years restoring the house to its former glory.  Improvements included adding modern features such as centre island that converts into a massage table and a heated napkin rack in the butler's pantry.

The actress said: ''I hope a family can appreciate it. I'd like someone to live a modern life, enjoying all the things we so carefully brought to it - the wi-fi, the security - yet be in the house in a timeless way. I hope they will appreciate the aesthetic. And I want them to have fun.''
