The first project that Neoclassicist Robert Adam built following his Grand Tour, Letterfourie is located on 300 acres near the town of Buckie, in Banffshire, Scotland. The 11-bedroom, pink-granite house was completed in 1772, and Adam’s drawings for it are preserved at the Sir John Soane Museum in London. The asking price is $2.7 million. (A flock of 500 Soay sheep are available for separate purchase.)
