UK’s smallest castle on sale for £550,000

Would you live in this tiny castle?

The UK’s smallest castle has been put on the market; and you can snap it up for the price of a small flat in London.

The grade II listed building comes with just a single bedroom, but the decor inside as well as the beautiful grounds make it somewhat of a bargain.

People looking for a more princely prestige may want to change the name however: it is called Molly’s Lodge.

The little castle was constructed by British architect Edward Blore in the 1830s.

He also restored Lambeth Palace and completed the enlargement of Buckingham Palace for Queen Victoria.

The home is situated in Long Compton in Warwickshire, and is surrounded by trees in its 0.61 acre site.

The new owner will be able to enjoy its limestone turrets, and the winding staircase up to the top.

As well as having turrets, a bedroom in the main castle and a smaller one in an outbuilding, the property has a dining room with mullion windows and a Victorian cast iron fireplace.

It has a bathroom and a sitting room as well as a double carpark and garage which houses an office.

In terms of the grounds, there is a long gravel driveway which leads up to an oak front door.

The owner will inherit a pond, an orchard, vegetable patches and a chicken run.
