Luxury Real Estate: The Gipsy Tower Castle is a castle church built in the 19th century. It is the only dwelling of its kind that has been converted into a single-family residence. The previous owner of this 120-foot-high dwelling was none other than the Queen herself. Being 300 feet above sea level, the panoramic view from the terrace extends for miles over London. It sets on one of the highest vantage points in South London. The Gipsy Tower Castle is officially classified as a Grade II "Castle Church." Photographs of the tower, which were taken by the Queen's cousin, Lord Snowdon, appear in the book London Unseen.

Despite its appearance, the spacious interiors throughout are exceptionally luxurious and modern. The walls of the Gipsy Tower Castle are 3.5 feet thick, and there are 72 stained-glass windows. The ceiling of the fourth-floor belfry is 30 feet high and has a grandiose Italian chandelier. The bath of the master bedroom has a skylight. The tower also has three additional bedrooms, a music room, and a drawing room. The kitchen, which is approximately 23 feet by 18-plus feet, has commercial-grade stainless-steel appliances, custom cabinetry, and a tiled floor.

This immaculate, historical castle is for sale or rent. It is listed at $9.5 million. For further details email Michael at Michael@GipsyTower.com or call +44 (0) 207 449 9797.
