That's certainly the case with the stunning Grade I listed Devizes Castle in Wiltshire, which is on sale for £2.5 million.


With a pedigree rich in history - in its original carnation, the castle was built in 1080; it was later largely destroyed during the English Civil War before being rebuilt in the 1830s - the property offers stunning countryside views.


With nine bedrooms, four bathrooms and a library (plus not one but two kitchens), the property naturally comes complete with turrets (naturally), stone mullioned windows and exquisite period architecture features. 


In short, it's a dream - so if you're tempted and want to make it a reality, view the listing and arrange a property viewing here.
