Hadlow Castle is perfect for a young family – or Sleeping Beauty…
Are you looking for a swish new pad, with a quick commute and gorgeous views? Are you also a Disney princess? Well, we may have just found your dream home. Hadlow Castle in Kent has just gone on the market for offers around £1.6 million, and to be honest, we think it’s well worth the money. Especially since it was listed back in 2018 for £2 million, making today’s listing a veritable bargain. And just look at it, for goodness’ sake.
Hadlow Castle stands at an imposing 175ft tall, and is actually the last remaining part of a Gothic castle. Far from being a dusty, old, and possibly haunted castle, the place has been handsomely redecorated with all the creature comforts of modern life. Things you need, like a fully equipped media room. That £4.5 million restoration was money well spent!
The castle also features a drawing room, kitchen, dining room, and four bathrooms. But the best feature has to be the master bedroom, set on the top floor – this is also where you access the roof terrace. Yep, a roof terrace. The views are unsurprisingly gorgeous.
Getting around your new dream home is a breeze, too. Two staircases provide access to each floor, and keep you fit in the process. But don’t worry, there’s a lift to the living area if you can’t hack all those stairs. And that’s it. That’s all the amazing stuff to find here. Oh, apart from the castle gardens, which also boast a croquet lawn, and an ornamental boating lake. WHAT. Seriously, why don’t I live here already?
It may actually be enough to tempt you to leave London. Even so, you won’t be far away – the local train stations are Sevenoaks and Tonbridge, both of which can get you to central London in 30 minutes. The only issue for aspiring princesses is that birds won’t help you dress in the morning whilst harmonising an upbeat song. Or will they? Apparently white doves nest in the tower each year, so you never know…
