Rapunzel-Style Tower Home On The Market In Kent


A fairytale life could be on the cards for the buyer of this Rapunzel-esque tower for sale in Kent.

Hadlow Tower, standing at 175ft, was first built by merchant Walter Barton May in the 19th century, with folklore suggesting that he erected the tower to keep an eye on his spouse after she left him for a local farmer.

Today, is has been transformed into a dramatic four-bedroom family home that has hit the market for more than £2million.

The Grade I listed building is revered as one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in the country. It was meticulously restored five years ago and now provides accommodation over the principal first five floors.

Linked by a fully serviced lift and complimented by two turret staircases, the rooms enjoy impressive ceiling heights and impressive views across the city. Highlights include a media room, castle drawing room, spacious kitchen/breakfast room as well as a master bedroom with large en-suite.

There remains potential on the sixth floor for the next buyer to create further living space, while the seventh and eighth floors give access to the parapet-walkway, which affords 360 degree panoramic views of Kent.

Outside of the tower is a private garden and woodland, and it is situated in the centre of Hadlow village surrounded by a plethora of amenities including shops, restaurants and both private and state schools.

The property is for sale through Strutt & Parker. To find out more visit www.struttandparker.com
