An Englishman’s home is his castle: Adorable mini-castle surrounded by normal houses up for sale in Worcestershire
If you’ve ever wanted to own a real-life castle, you can for £268,000 – even if it only has two bedrooms.
They do say an Englishman’s home is his castle – but this two-bed property has taken that literally.
Nestled in the picturesque countryside village of Upper Arley, Worcestershire, the idyllic Arley Tower even has its own turret.
The Grade II listed folly towers above neighbouring houses and enjoys glorious views of the River Severn from its rooftop terrace.
The two-storey building, which was built in 1842 out of local Arley stone, features a three-storey octagonal staircase leading to the roof.
Despite being built in a Gothic Revival style by the owner of the Arley Estate, Lord Mountnorris, the mini-castle is really light.
The ground floor has two bedrooms and French doors leading off the master bedroom to the rear courtyard.
The first floor comprises of a vaulted living room, kitchen and balcony.
On the final floor, the tower leads to the roof terrace which is a superb spot to enjoy the views over Upper Arley itself and the River Severn.
