Fit for a king! Five-bedroom family home designed to look like a miniature CASTLE goes on the market for £750,000 – complete with turrets, battlements and a flagpole

  • A five-bedroom and two-reception room home called ‘The Castle’ in Holt, Norfolk, has gone on the market
  • The property has a guide price of £750,000 – the price of a detached house – with option to buy more land
  • Comes complete with turrets, a flag pole, stone walls and regal high ceilings with large windows in all rooms

A five-bedroom manor house known as ‘The Castle’ in Norfolk has gone on the market with a guide price of £750,000 – giving you the chance to live like royalty. 

The stunning property, which was built in the early 19th century to look like a castle, is located in Holt, a Georgian market town four miles away from the picturesque coastline – and has the same asking price as that of a detached house. 

Gaining its nickname due to its regal exterior, which features mock turrets, flag pole and stone walls, it boasts extensive gardens – along with the option to buy more land – and is fit for a king or queen. 

Formerly a part of Gresham’s School campus and set within a gated environment, the manor house, which approaches 2,500 square feet, sits alongside three other period properties in an area described as being ‘close to town yet remarkably peaceful and private’.

The property, which approaches 2,500 square feet, has two reception rooms (pictured) on the ground floor, including a sitting room which has a fireplace and cream walls and carpets

Inside, the downstairs boasts a large modern kitchen, which is fitted with shaker-style furniture – with white and minimalist features continuing throughout. 

The room features high-ceilings and has plenty of storage along with large, original windows on both ends to give the space a light and airy feel. 

The windows are both original and have optional shutters which are fully functional – plus the addition of a dining table perfect for family meals. 

The property has two reception rooms, with a sitting room and lounge available on the ground floor.

The master bedroom (pictured) has a large window and the same cream carpet and white walls as the rest of the property, as well as an en-suite

The lounge (pictured) also has a fireplace, with light blue and grey sofas and arm chairs, with matching soft furnishings with views overlooking the garden 

The sitting room has three large windows and a fireplace and is slightly smaller than the lounge and the kitchen, further enhancing its cosy feel. 

It currently has dark sofas, cream carpets and white walls, while wall-mounted antlers take centre-stage as guests enter the room. 

Meanwhile, the lounge is larger with the same cream carpets and white walls, but this time intricate pieces of art grace the ceilings, while a light blue sofa and patterned armchairs add a pop of colour to an otherwise simple, yet elegant interior.  

Directly off the formal sitting room, a raised sun terrace overlooks the grounds, while the ground floor also features a guest toilet, a utility room and the fifth bedroom, which can be used as a study.  

In front of the property is a gravelled courtyard area (pictured) with space for parking, while to one side and to the rear are the south-facing lawned gardens with mature borders

On the other side of the lounge, there is a dining table and white chairs along with another large window, giving the space a lot of natural light 

The upstairs has a large, curved hallway leading to the remaining four bedrooms, as well as a toilet, shower room and bathroom (pictured)

In the downstairs of the property, there is a fifth double bedroom located next to the utility room which currently has two single beds in, but can be used as a study (pictured)

The upstairs bedroom also has a brick fireplace opposite the bed, matching the soft, light wood furnishings of the rest of the room 

Another of the bedrooms overlooks the turrets outside from the extended section of the house on the floor below and currently has a double bed and a cot inside, with white furniture and soft pink furnishings on the bed 

There are twin beds and grey furniture in one of the other upstairs bedrooms, with a matching chest of drawers and a full length mirror hanging on the wall (pictured)

There is ample storage in the kitchen, which also boasts a second dining table for taking family meals or eating breakfasts in the mornings (pictured)

The property has a third fire place in the sitting room, which has three large windows, perfect for entertaining and providing the room with a lot of natural light 

The fifth bedroom, which leads off of the utility room and is situated next door to the kitchen, has two large windows, giving the room a light and airy feel. 

The utility room has the same light-wash cupboards as the kitchen, with a large sink and access to outside. 

An elegant turning staircase takes you to the rest of the house, with the upstairs hallway curving to lead to the remaining four bedrooms. 

There is a toilet, a bathroom and a shower room on the landing, as well as three double bedrooms and the master bedrooms, complete with an en-suite. 

In front of the property is a gravelled courtyard area with space for parking, while to one side and to the rear are the south-facing lawned gardens with mature borders.  

The large lounge has an archway leading through to a dining room, perfect for family dinners or entertaining guests at the weekend
