Restored castle for sale in Shropshire, England

A wonderful and unique house, Sham Castle in Shropshire is an enchanting Georgian Grade II* listed folly standing on a rocky pinnacle with awe-inspiring views encompassing the landmark hill, the Wrekin. Restored and renovated to create a compact but truly special property, this castle for sale stands in beautiful gardens and grounds surrounded by former parkland, with a back drop of wooded hills in Shropshire.

Built in 1780 for Sir Edward Smythe Bt of Acton Burnell Hall, the folly became the venue for lavish musical soirees and entertaining his numerous house guests. The castle for sale was designed by Joseph Bromfield, the fashionable Georgian architect, builder and plasterwork designer noted for his major works at Powis Castle and Attingham Park. Much of the original plasterwork to the magnificent music room, now used as an elegant drawing room, has been painstakingly restored to its former glory.
