Welsh castle for sale.
A 16th Century castle is being put up for auction and could be snapped up by a new owner for just £55,000. However the cost of redeveloping it has been estimated as up to £1,000,000. The cost would not be the only problem. Due to it's historic nature planning restrictions will be formidable.
As well as nearly an acre of ground the castle comes with it's own ghost. According to folklore, the castle is haunted by the Black Lady who was spotted by men working on the castle in the early 19th Century. She was described as a tall, shadowy figure dressed in mourning clothes.
Boverton Place is in Llantwit Major in the Vale of Glamorgan and has, allegedly, attracted celebrity interest. Details of Boverton Castle and the 0.94 of an acre of grounds surrounding it, went up on the website of Herbert R Thomas on Saturday(17/03/07) and has already attracted more than 2,400 hits.
Philip Thomas, who is handling the sale, said: "It's doing quite well. Normally we have about 4,000 hits per auction."
