This week’s Monday mansions range from £925,000 up to £3,995,000, and includes country houses and castles.
1. Sixteen bedroom detached house in Blythe Bridge Road, Caverswall, Stoke-On-Trent, for £3,000,000
Own a piece of history and buy Caverswall Castle, which was built on the site of an Anglo-Saxon manor in 1275, but the building later fell in to decay and was rebuilt around 1625 as a Jacobean mansion. At one time the castle was owned by the Wedgewood family, who added a decorative Wedgewood ceiling to the library. The most recent owners have painstakingly restored the castle and went to the length of reinstating the moat.
