But we're talking turrets, the lot, so the word castle seems entirely appropriate.

Built in the 19th century, the Gothic B-listed building in Springburn, Glasgow, has a lounge and a sitting room, three bedrooms, a pretty indoor garden, a spiral staircase leading to the top of the tower, Glasgow Live reports.

From there, you get panoramic views of Glasgow below.

But it has its own, well-maintained gardens and driveways on either side if you feel like upping the proverbial drawbridge and hiding away.

The cost is not exactly spare change but when you consider that one bedroom flats can go for more some might give Springburn a try.
