Dinton castle is a unique character property which is set in an idylic countryside location and surrounded by panoramic views.
Dinton Castle, once a feature property on Grand Designs, has been brought to the market with Chancellors. Built in 1769 by Sir John Vanhattem, the propertyâ€™s original purpose was to catch the eye of those visiting the Dinton Hall estate and to store his fossil ammonites collection.
This Grade II* listed folly was once an old ruin, however, it has now been restored and is bursting with a new lease of life. When you enter the property, you are greeted by a cosy living room with multi-angle views across the surrounding land. The property is laid out over three octagonal floors. The staircase leads to a bespoke breakfast room and kitchen. Downstairs, modern fittings and solid wood surfaces surround a classic range cooker. There is also space for a dining area, with plenty of natural light flooding the room.
Dinton Castle is not short on character, with exposed stone, brickwork and oak timber beams throughout. Modern comforts are also not far away, with underfloor heating and ensuite bathrooms to the two bedrooms. The property also boasts a rooftop terrace with impressive 360 views of the beautiful surrounding Buckinghamshire countryside. The garden is accessible via the rear terrace glazed doors and down a set of steps. Within the Â¾ acre plot, the folly is accessed via an electric security gate and has plenty of parking on the circular gravel driveway.
Dinton Castle is located on the A418, on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Dinton. Situated at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, the village has a public house, church and primary school. It is also not far away from some fantastic transport connections, with Haddenham and Thame Parkway Station providing access to London Marylebone 3 miles away and the M40 just 9 miles away
