There used to be an enclosed courtyard to the south of the castle; however, all that’s left is a broken round tower. The house will require a total makeover, so if you want to make an offer, you’ll need an eye for renovation.

Large rectangular windows from the mid-17th century that are located on the south and east walls of the castle provide ample natural light. It looks like several of the 16th-century windows still have gun hooks on their sills (perhaps used by soldiers during the war).
