Vanbrugh Castle, Greenwich

Three day eventing fans take note: one of the four properties inside Vanbrugh Castle in Greenwich has come onto the market. This early Georgian Grade I listed property, built between 1718-19, was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh, architect of Castle Howard and Blenheim Palace, for his own personal use.

This property, offered through Kershaws, consists of a wing of the castle within the extension built at the turn of last century and features a magnificent 30′ duel aspect reception room with commanding views over the park and also over its own idyllic rear gardens and on to London; the family kitchen opens directly out to the gardens. The master bedroom suite includes a dressing room and a shower room and the house has three further bedrooms plus a family bathroom.
