Property Description

As a young child how many of us dreamed of living in a castle. The princess in the tower rescued by her prince? A very rare and unique opportunity to purchase a little piece of history. Built in 1842 it is believed. Not quite a castle although there are many similarities this is a folly tower. A tower of architectural interest rather than any practical use apart from being a wonderful focal point, decoration or look out view point. These folly towers were common in both Great Britain and Ireland. Not initially built to be habitable but would have been constructed out of stone or brick stone spiral stairs rising to the roof platform, to be landmark ornaments within the estates of prominent land owner gentry. Seen from some distance across the river, thus used as look out posts to survey your land. Many of these buildings have been converted and extended for modern comforts.Hayden Estates are hugely delighted to be able to bring to the market this wonderful piece of history and architecture bought into the 21st century yet retaining such charm and history of a bygone era. And from the moment you cross the threshold you can be transported back through time. So very exciting!  Believed converted with the addition of the kitchen extension in the 1970s early 1980s. To provide living accommodation on two floors, consisting of two bedrooms, utility dressing area, bathroom, living room and kitchen. There are three outside spaces, the largest enclosed private terrace is located on the ground floor, a small balcony on the first and of course the top platform on the second.  A cloakroom was added to the first floor at a later date.Sympathetically improved with oak doors and wrought iron furniture. Karndean flooring, black pewter coloured sockets and switches, central heating via a combination oil fired boiler, with exposed copper piping, which appear to have always been here in a rustic way.  Colour washed exposed brick work in majority of the building, beautiful stone work, with just a dash of colour adding feature walls. Â
