It’s like something out of a fairytale; a grand castle mixed with a stone cottage, complete with stained glass windows and medieval finishes.
But the bespoke property isn’t from the pages of a storybook - it’s right here in Australia, tucked away on NSW’s Mid North Coast.
The property features two turrets, Medieval-style doors and archways and - of course - suits of armour.
The handcrafted stone, brick and timber home, known as ‘Touchwood’, sits just 20 minutes from Coffs Harbour and fifteen minutes from the village of Bellingen.
The unusual four bedroom property was built by an Englishman, who is a stone mason with a passion for all things Medieval, according to realestate.com.au.
So passionate, in fact, that he would regularly attend jousting tournaments and medieval reenactment festivals.
“Be the Monarch of Your Own Castle,” the listing promises.
“Built with consideration of the local environment and utilising natural and recycled products wherever possible, this home is both romantic and practical.”
The whimsical home sits on a 6,000m2 block and is listed for $985,000.
Though it looks like it’s lost in the wilderness, it’s only five minutes from the beach.
“The gardens are private, self-maintaining, and home to an abundance of bird life,” the listing promises.
“There is plenty of flat ground to build a vegetable garden or put in a pool.”
Speaking to realestate.com, agent Peter Stone said there is a lot of intrigue surrounding the house, “but it will suit a very selective buyer.”
