With an approximate gross internal measurement of 2945 sq ft (273.6 sq m) this is a generous family home finished to an exceptionally high standard with excellent attention to detail. There are three beautifully appointed reception rooms - a sitting room with glazed and leaded doors out to the private courtyard leading to a living room; both rooms have access to the moatside terrace. The morning room is an absolute delight - hexagonal in shape, the ceiling rising to the roof apex with window seats overlooking the moat - the ideal vantage point for bird watching or a quiet spot to read.
The dining kitchen is perfect for entertaining - there is a dining area to one end, to the other a fitted SieMatic kitchen with breakfast bar, island unit and a dramatic lantern window. To keep the kitchen tidy is a separate utility room. The study has fitted furniture and an en suite shower room, previously used as bedroom 4 it’s flexible and good for guests that like a ground floor bedroom. There is an inner hall between the study and living room with floor to ceiling windows, decoratively etched with heraldic coat of arms and knights.
An oak staircase leads up to the landing off which are three bedrooms; the master bedroom, with a range of bespoke fitted wardrobes and en suite bathroom, has a private roof terrace. There are two further bedrooms, one is currently used as a dressing room with a stylish and contemporary Jack and Jill bathroom between the two.
On the lower ground floor, accessed externally, is double bedroom 5 with an en suite wet room. If you don’t need the bedroom space then consider a dedicated home office, gym or hobbies room.
Unique for The Courtyard is the outside space - perfect if you value your privacy. The attractive and very private courtyard gardens are on two levels; the first is cobbled with wrought iron gates, water feature and gas-fired torches, the lower flagged courtyard with two feature mosaics. The Courtyard also benefits from a private driveway by The Stables entrance providing excellent parking for additional cars or guests.
Thurland Castle Estate form the management company and own the freehold of the castle, each with an equal share. The Courtyard is being sold on the balance of a 999 year lease which is subject to payment of a quarterly maintenance charge (the amount payable for 2020 is £1,321.22) which covers garden, building and ground maintenance, treatment plant, external lighting and buildings insurance.
