A castle coach house with its own battlement wall is up for sale for £950,000

Do you dream of being a royal in your very own castle?

Turns out you don’t need to be born of noble blood or have millions in the bank to achieve those old-school castle dwellings.

Instead, you’ll need £950,000. A bargain, we reckon.

That amount of money could get you this 18th century stone-built property, which looks like a traditional castle from the outside.

The five bedroom coach house sits in grounds in Castle Eden, and is surrounded by a 30ft high Grade II listed battlement wall with pink mortar.

Plus, there’s a central courtyard with York stone flags and box hedging.

Sadly there’s no moat or drawbridge, but you could always build that yourself.


Don’t worry, the inside isn’t all bare stone and outdated features.

Instead, you enter into a hallway with marble floor, beautiful exposed tinder beams, and a glorious chimney with an exposed stone fire. There’s a main arch window that offers views of that courtyard we mentioned, as well as woodland area, and a brick archway to the rear.

Then you’ll find two rather grand living areas – the formal lounge and the drawing room, complete with another exposed brick fireplace and underfloor heating.

The kitchen is pretty special, letting in loads of natural light to shine on the Mother of Pearl granite work surfaces.

This space has a four-oven aga, exposed timbers in the ceiling, and space for a massive table for all your feasts.

The home has five bedrooms, including the master bedroom suite with views of the surrounding forest and battlement wall, and there’s also a self-contained cottage, called The Keep, that’s great for guests.

The gardens are lovely too, comprising of the front courtyard and terrace and formal gardens with confire trees, beech trees, and palm trees.

The property is being marketed by UrbanBase, who describe this as a ‘rare opportunity to acquire a stunning 18th century stone-built property’.

If you fancy booking in a virtual viewing, you can do so through Rightmove.
