Called the smallest castle in England, Molly’s Lodge (~$690K), close to the village of Long Compton in Warwickshire, is up for sale. Originally built as the gatehouse to the Weston Park Estate, this stone Grade II listed castle with its crenelated roof was built by England’s famous architect Edward Blore in the 1830’s.
Sitting on six-tenths of an acre, Molly’s Lodge is fully functional with a single bedroom, bath, a living room, and the dining area that features a cast-iron Victorian fireplace with a stone hearth and mullion windows. Second-floor access is provided by a decorative spiral staircase.
The grounds play host to a graveled driveway, ornamental pond, chicken run, potager garden, and a fruit orchard. The property also houses an adjacent self-contained annex with garage, car port, and second floor one bedroom flat with secure office space. It may not be Buckingham Palace, but at Molly’s Lodge, your home can truly be your castle!
