The north-facing home on two levels stands out by being one of three units contained in the original castle.

Sotheby’s International sales agent Daniella Vains said all of the apartments were different — but this one was a rare find.

“The property has access to its own well-established garden courtyard, as well as a beautiful upstairs terraced area,” she says.

Dreamy outdoor cottage for entertaining.

The sandstone castle was constructed in 1925 as the summer home for Harold Armytage and his sisters with a design by Harold Desbrowe Annear.

Till the early 2000s, Delgany changed hands several times and was a hospital, school for the deaf and a country retreat with a restaurant.

It features parapets and towers with a mix of Gothic and medieval elements but has been extended and renovated to be a gated residential community.
