Thurland Castle is a Grade II listed historic property with an elevated setting and extensive views over the pretty surrounding countryside. Eight years ago the property was completely renovated to the highest standards, and now contains a range of individual homes including apartments, duplexes and cottages, although Thurland will be the only house within the castle itself.

The property comprises the principal southern wing of the castle, and has around 4,400sq ft of living space, private ownership of the rose garden and surrounding terracing. Within the property are three bedroom suites, and three bathrooms with a second floor studio/further bedroom, and two reception rooms including the stunning original ballroom of the castle which now forms an extremely grand drawing room.

Outside the property benefits there is a double garage with adjacent storage, as well as fantastic communal grounds and a tennis court.

Although the property sits within a large historic castle, the agent is keen to emphasise that the house itself is extremely manageable and comfortable and would make a wonderful family home.

The guide price is £1.75m. For further information please telephone Knight Frank on 01423 530 088 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
