The £3m love nest with decor by Chanel

Scottish Highlands estate for sale with Georgian mansion decorated by Coco Chanel.
Rosehall, an estate and Georgian mansion, in the Scottish Highlands, has a fascinating history. Bought in the Twenties by Hugh Grosvenor, 2nd Duke of Westminster, then Britain’s richest man, it became the focus of his six-year romance with Coco Chanel.
The French couturier decorated the 20 rooms, reputedly installing Scotland’s first bidet, and the property is thought to be the only one outside continental Europe with Chanel-designed interiors. Winston Churchill, a close friend of the duke, recuperated there in 1928.
The remarkable residence has lain empty since the late Sixties but is about to go on the market for £3 million with RE/MAX, with planning permission to convert the mansion into a hotel and five other estate buildings into lodges. The owners suggest a championship golf course could be created, with horse riding, hunting, clay pigeon shooting, fishing, ballooning and quad biking.
