A quite spectacular and rare example of a wonderful castellated Tudor Gothic residence in fine condition. Originally built in 1816 and note the asymmetrical frontage centred on a Georgian Gothic doorcase showing a ‘Churchwarden’ overlight. There are historical ancillary Irish battlements embellishing a parapeted roofline. The Castle measures approximately 4,500 sqft and is positioned on 0.4 acres of mature landscaped grounds. The accommodation briefly comprises of 5 bedrooms (3 en-suite and 1 walk-in wardrobe), 4 reception rooms, vestibule, reception hall, cloakroom, guest WC, laundry room and family bathroom.
Accessed by crocketed electric cast-iron double gates opening onto the sweeping drive and forecourt The Castle sits handsomely on beautifully landscaped grounds. A large gravelled driveway provides a generous parking apron for several cars, flanked by mature trees, well planted flower bed borders and lawned areas showcasing a gazing ball water feature. To the front, side and rear of the property considered landscaping has created a lush oasis and a host of specimen trees and shrubs. There is a large timber decking and BBQ area to the rear and a private lawn garden area to the side of The Castle. There is also a cascading water sculpture and a charming redbrick shed/workshop as well as a pedestrian gate access onto Claremont Road passing the old Irish battlements.
As working from home becomes the norm and affords a work/life balance, The Castle provides a nearly magical setting for families to enjoy and grow into. Whether getting through the day to day of school runs, homework and play dates or preparing for Christmas parties and hosting family events and guests – The Castle offers a rare backdrop for the next generation of occupiers a great chance to create some wonderful memories for a lifetime.
