This isn’t officially a castle but given it definitively has the appearance of one and the fact that it’s called “Castlefields” I think it’s worthy of my Sunday castle feature 🙂
Castlefields is an exceptionally handsome Grade II-listed former hunting lodge set in grounds of a third of an acre. Built in the early 19th century in the Tudor Revival style, it is positioned on the edge of the market town Calne in Wiltshire, within the Calne Conservation Area. Internal accommodation measures some 6,000 sq ft, encompassing six double bedrooms, a suite of attic rooms and an incredibly versatile series of living spaces. The original architectural detailing is highly unique with wonderful original joinery, fenestration, plasterwork, and chimneypieces. It also features exquisite stonework, seen perhaps most notably in the beautiful stone cantilever staircase. Additionally, a separate cottage for ancillary accommodation is currently divided into two independent one-bedroom apartments. This is currently under offer (was for sale for £1,695,000) via Inigo.
