Wiverton Hall near Bingham, Nottinghamshire, comes with a sweeping staircase, acres of grounds and the original mid-15th century gate and guardhouse – all for an impressive £1.5 million.
Space-stricken Londoners, trapped by rising house prices, could well jump at the chance to own the palatial six-bed house, which costs the same as a small one bed flat in Knightsbridge.
According to property website Rightmove, a one-bedroom property in exclusive Sloanne Street, home to flagship designer stores such as Louis Vuitton, would cost exactly the same but for just 530 sq ft instead of Wiverton Hall’s mammoth 10,000 sq ft.
The castle overlooking the Vale of Belvoir is Grade II listed and has been restored by its current owners with a double Aga in the kitchen for keen cookers and a vast stone fire place in the sitting room.
Former servant’s quarters on the second floor are yet to be refurbished but could provide space for even more bedrooms.
Estate Agent Steve Parker, of FHP Living, said: “This is an incredible place.”
“It has been used as a family home for the last ten years and growing up there must have been fantastic.”
“The views across the Vale of Belvoir are stunning and the house itself has three acres for the owners to enjoy.”
“We’ve had a lot of interest already and I’m not surprised. It’s certainly a pleasure to show people around.”
