Italian-style ‘castle’ with its very own turret on sale in UK for less than £1m

House hunters have the chance to live in a spectacular Italian-style “castle” which has hit the market at less than £1million.

High Morland Lodge is spread over three storeys which ooze Italian charm, complete with a Juliet balcony, sweeping roof terrace and its very own turret.

Built in 1905 as a gatehouse, the Grade II listed property was designed by Richard Harding-Watt who specialised in Italianate style homes, reports Chesire Live.

Featuring a romantic Juliet balcony, pristine courtyard and sweeping roof terrace, the “castle” can now be snapped up for just £925,000 via Savills in Knutsford, Chesire.

Interiors include an elegant sitting room with an open fireplace, a conservatory overlooking the courtyard, and the perfect home office space at the top of its impressive tower.

Jamie Carter, head of residential sales at Savills, said: “A chance to own your own mini castle doesn’t come around too often.

“This is an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire such a unique property located on one of Knutsford’s most prestigious roads.

“On the market for the first time in over 44 years, this property combines wonderful accommodation and character with incredibly impressive views.

High Morland Lodge is arranged over three floors and extends up another two levels within the tower offering sprawling views of Cheshire.

The property offers two stylish bedrooms, an immaculate kitchen and breakfast room, a conservatory and sitting room, all thoughtfully brought back to life by the current owner.

A gravel driveway leads to the front door and provides parking for three cars.

Enter the property through reclaimed glass doors which leads into a light and airy hallway.

Its bespoke kitchen is fitted with a Danish log burner which continues through to a dining area and conservatory overlooking the courtyard garden.

The well kept courtyard leads from the conservatory and winds down to the lower ground floor.

Meanwhile the cosy sitting room benefits from stylish French doors, a cosy fireplace and Juliet balcony.

The lower ground floor offers a guest bedroom with modern en-suite facilities and access out to the courtyard.

As well as its unique interior, the property is also well located just a stone’s throw away from local amenities.

Mr Carter added: “Situated just a short walk from restaurants and specialist shops in the pretty town centre, the surrounding area is well served by a number of good schools.”
