Molly’s Lodge: Tiny English Castle

Ok, bear with me. I know this isn’t a tiny home, but this castle does qualifies as a small home, and as castles go, a tiny castle. Plus it’s just too quaint not to feature!

Molly’s Lodge, and the nearby “outbuildling,” were for sale together in Little Wolford, England last week (it looks like it’s sold now). The castle portion is about 782 sq. ft. if I’m reading the floor plan correctly. It features a sitting room, dining room, kitchen and full bath, as well as a spiral staircase to the tower bedroom. Fit for a princess πŸ™‚ The nearby building has 1,145 sq. ft., so we will ignore it and just admire this quaint castle in the English countryside.

The castle was designed by Edward Blore, who actually completed John Nash’s design of Buckingham Palace. So he really knows what he’s doing when it comes to castle-design!

You’ll hate me when you see the price, but again — it’s a castle! — A girl can dream, right?

Molly’s Lodge: Tiny English Castle

The spiral staircase to the tower! The old wooden door. Love it!

Quaint “sitting room” with a wood-burning stove and bay windows.

Oh that red tile is so fun! Very “farmhouse.”

Tower bedroom. Look at the window details. I’d need a four-poster.

    A castle fit for a Queen! It is absolutely beautiful! I love the English countryside surrounding the castle! Just gorgeous!! The sitting room I love the cozy sitting room, amazing brick hearth! Awesome kitchen! Love the red tile, it looks like a farmhouse kitchen! Love all the bookshelves in there! Love the windows! Brings in a lot of sunlight! The bedroom in the tower is huge and again I love the size of the room and those windows love the architecture! The home is just beautiful! They will have no problem selling it! Love all the details throughout that stunning showplace of a home! Thank You! For sharing it! Enjoyed touring it!🌷🌹🌷

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I did too πŸ™‚

    This house is my fantasy. It’s a bit bigger than I need but I would make that sacrifice if I had the chance to live there.

    It’s so lovely! But alas, at that price, we peasants can only serve the tea and drool. . .sigh πŸ™

    As many men, and women may call their home their castle, Molly on the other hand owns a true blue castle of her own…! Now how many can say that..? It is wondrous as is it is a True castle with lovely gardens which surround its statures presence, and commands your attention to all of it’s details within it’s stone walls, and out… Truly a time that has passed us by when castles of this beauty have been the center of attention of all who come upon it’s lands in which it governs…

      That’s the truth! Not many real castles in the States haha. Over here, though, I see ruins everywhere of a time gone by!

    this is truly a fantastic oportunity for someone with money. It is just under $700,000.00 US dollars. I thought it was a great buy but did not see, maybe passed over it, the acerage of the site. That would be what makes or breaks the deal.

    • Mr. Lonnie April 11, 2017, 7:06 pm

      Its an 0.61 acre site.

    Just went and looked at the price sheet and for me it would be a deal breaker. It is only on one half acre. I would want at least 3-5 acres for that price and the type of house. Beautiful house though.

  • Tom Osterdock April 11, 2017, 2:24 pm

    Well I just thought of an idea. We did bring London bridge over here so why not a castle?

  • earl colby pottinger April 11, 2017, 11:08 pm

    What gets me is the housing market in Toronto and Vancouver is so hot that this castle seem cheap compared to the million dollar houses for sale.

    And it look better than what is for sale here too!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 12, 2017, 6:53 am

      I was actually thinking the same thing! For a castle, it’s really not that unreasonable!

  • Patricia April 15, 2017, 7:17 pm

    Natalie, when I was a teenager we lived in England for three years and the first year we lived in a farmhouse cottage in the Cotswolds. The kitchen here reminds me of the kitchen in the cottage. I absolutely love this little castle. What a charming place to live. Since you mentioned another building (house) I would assume that the selling price included that. If so, it isn’t as outrageous as some people think.

    Regardless, I could easily see us living there if I were much healthier and could climb stairs. It’s so sweet.

    • Patricia April 15, 2017, 7:20 pm

      PS: You are right, the bedroom needs a four-poster bed with with delectae lace curtains on it.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 17, 2017, 7:41 am

      Totally agree on the bed/bedding, Patricia! And yes the price included both structures, so it’s about $700,000 for I think 1,800 sq. ft.? Not too shabby, especially with the land and gardens. Not in my price range, but not out of someone’s (especially since it sold haha).

  • Patricia April 15, 2017, 7:24 pm

    PPS: *Canopy* bed, with a floral quilt and matching window drapes.
