If you have ever dreamed of owning an affordable castle in Britain, such a listing has hit the market.
Say what you will about fairy tales, but it has always been my fantasy to live in a castle. I don’t particularly care how big the castle is, as long as it has the general look and feel of a castle, and comes with a carriage house for my unicorns. That’s not too much to ask, is it? Unicorns notwithstanding, I may have found my dream home, as the smallest castle in England has hit the market, and it has nothing but fairy tale potential.
Located in the village of Long Compton, Warwickshire, the castle is named Molly’s Lodge, and sits on a 0.61 acre lot. The home was originally a gatehouse built by British architect Edward Blore, in the 1830s. Blore also worked on such noteworthy projects as the restoration of Lambeth Palace, and the extension of Buckingham Palace.
The home itself is one bedroom, one bathroom, and includes a gorgeous spiral staircase, mullion windows, and a cast iron Victorian fireplace, so it’s the perfect way to express your desire for a castle without going too overboard.
For just under $700K, it’s a small price to pay to achieve one of your childhood dreams. Unicorns sold separately.via ]
