If you like things bold, brash and classic – then this Spanish property could be the one. It’s a fully modern house on the inside but from the outside it’s been designed in the form of a traditional Medieval castle!

Not only does it have an incredible tower and some scary gargoyles adorning the building, but it even comes with its own feature drawbridge, so you can live out those fantasies of being a knight in shining armour or a queen of the Iron Throne!
