England’s Smallest Castle Is For Sale And It Costs No More Than A Mid-Sized Flat In London

Finally, you might get a step closer to living in a fairytale, because Britain’s smallest castle is up for grabs, and it costs no more than a mid-sized flat in London!

The property in question is Molly’s Lodge, a Grade II listed castle that sits on a 0.61-acre plot of land near the village of Long Compton in Warwickshire. Originally a gatehouse for the Weston Park Estate on the northern edge of the Cotswolds, Molly’s Lodge was built by the famous British architect, Edward Blore, in the 1830s. The very same guy who was in charge of restoring Lambeth Palace and extending Buckingham Palace for Queen Victoria.

Inside, it’s a fully functioning home, with one bedroom, a bathroom, living room, decorative spiral staircase and dining room complete with mullion windows and cast iron Victorian fireplace.

For those seriously interested, it costs £550,000 and you can express your interest before the 19th of April through here. (h/t: demilked)

Take a look inside:

There’s also Molly’s Mews in the property…

A perfect housing for visitors staying overnight

Buy the castle, live in the little house, rent the castle out on Airbnb or some other site, charge obscene amounts of money per night, laugh all the way to the bank.

And pay British taxes at British tax rates.

This is perfect. Nobody needs a 15 bedroom with 20 bathroom home/castle.

I never understood that! All those Hollywood palaces have like 10 bedrooms and for some reason they'll have 15 bathrooms!? How on earth would anyone need more baths than beds? People are so spoiled x_X
