This is a unique opportunity to live in London in Grand Style. Greenwich can offer you a prime property with plenty of outdoor space. If you weren’t aware, there is a lovely Residential CASTLE just by the edge of Greenwich Park which is now on the market to be taken by the next “royal family” in line and it could be YOURS.
Commoners looking for a taste of the high life can snap up an apartment in a historic London castle. The luxury four-storey household is nestled inside Grade I-listed Vanbrugh Castle in Maze Hill, south-east London, and boasts square towers with battlements and communal gardens. Among its unique features are secret tunnels and the remains of an amphitheater within 2.5 acres of gardens.
An Englishman’s home may be his ‘castle’ but now you can have the real thing. The property has plush interiors. The apartment boasts four bedrooms, a deluxe kitchen, and a living and dining room consisting of solid wood doors and large picturesque windows.
Main Wooden Floors and doors have been recently sanded offering a more modern and brighter look to the living space.
The master bedroom has a dressing room and a bathroom adjacent to it, while on the second floor lies the three other neat-looking bedrooms. The basement has a utility room and large cellar while outside there is a large annex which could be used as a cinema-room or a game-room with its independent kitchen and bathroom. Residents will benefit from two off-street parking spaces.
The jewel in the crown of this home is a private roof terrace which enjoys sweeping views of the Royal Greenwich Observatory as well as the Skyscrapers in Canary Wharf and in the City. The property opens its gates at the edge of Greenwich Park.
Vanbrugh Castle, modeled on the French Bastille, was built in 1718 by highly acclaimed architect Sir John Vanbrugh who lived there with his wife Henrietta Maria Yarborough. The architect modeled it on Bastille where he was imprisoned in 1690 for two years after being accused of espionage. Sir John is best known as the designer of UNESCO World Heritage Site Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire and Castle Howard in North Yorkshire.
Vanbrugh Castle has since been used as an RAF school for the sons of servicemen killed in the World Wars but was restored and refurbished by the Blackheath Preservation Trust into four independent luxury living space. Grade I Listed EPC Rating Exempt.
