Molly’s Lodge, a Grade II listed castle is located on a 0.61-acre plot near the Long Compton village in Warwickshire. It was built by the famous British architect, Edward Blore, in the 1830s, and was originally used as a gatehouse for the Weston Park Estate situated on the northern edge of the Cotswolds.

Blore is the same architect who led the Lambeth Palace restoration project as well as the extension of Buckingham Palace for Queen Victoria.

The fully functioning castle entails one bedroom, a bathroom, living room, a gorgeous spiral staircase and a dining room adorned with mullion windows and cast iron Victorian fireplace.

Stepping out of the bijou property gives you a more generous sense of space, as the lodge hosts a long, gravel driveway and is based in a beautiful formal lawn surrounded by herbaceous borders.

It also boasts an ornamental pond, a chicken run and a potager with fruits, vegetables and herbs. This makes Molly’s lodge completely self-sufficient, a perfect place to be your hideout from the world.

Iain Powis from Savills Banbury, where Molly’s Lodge is listed, comments:

“Molly’s Lodge is certainly a unique Grade II listed home and there really isn’t much else like it in the area. The Cotswolds has a real breadth of architectural styles with everything from pretty thatched cottages through to grand manor houses and rectories, but this Gate Lodge offers something completely different.”

“Interest so far has come from local buyers who are looking to downsize, as well as those from further afield who are seeking a bolthole in the Cotswolds countryside.”

(h/t: demilked)

The castle will cost the buyer £550,000, but you better hurry and express your interest before the 19th of April here.
