One half expects Rapunzel to be listed among the previous owners of this highly original flat which sits just outside Stratford-Upon-Avon.

The Tower is part of Goldicote Hall, a superb country estate in 18 acres of private parkland and gardens, believed to date back to the early 13th century.

The hall was converted in 2000 into 11 apartments and six mews houses, all finished to a high specification yet still retaining their period quirks.

Covering three floors, The Tower has an attractively laid out fitted kitchen/breakfast room with integrated appliances. A door leads from here to a snug which has a further door to the private garden and another to a bathroom.

Stairs lead up to the sitting room which, like the kitchen below and bedroom above, is octagonal in shape. On the top floor is a double bedroom with built-in storage and its own en-suite toilet and basin.


Guide price: £250,000. Agent: Sothebys International Realty on 01789 200900 or tap .
