The Astley Castle was once a historical structure, but Witherford Watson Mann Architects transformed the England-situated building into a private residence. The beautiful foundation of the castle still exists in the renovated version but the interiors have a modernized feel.
When you step into the building, you will find solid wooden ceiling, sturdy hardwood floors and all the comforts of modern furniture and home design. Screen doors offer spectacular views into the ‘backyard’ where similar buildings are within view. The kitchen is immaculate with marble tiles, a wooden counter and a long dining table. Modern-style lighting is also positioned from the ceiling but natural light does the trick during the day.
The brick walls around the Astley Castle, as well as the enormous staircase maintain the historical feeling of the home. When you step outside, the home looks almost identical to how it looked years ago. This beautiful time-travel home will take you on a trip through history.
