One of Windsor’s most iconic properties is up for sale.
Property consultants Kempton Carr Croft is inviting offers of over £1.5 million to buy the Crooked House, officially known as Market Cross House.
The 17th century property, which is nestled between the famous landmarks Windsor Castle and Windsor Guildhall, is also available to rent for £50,000 per year.
It is believed the building obtained its signature tilt after unseasoned green oak wood was accidentally used when it was rebuilt following a land dispute in 1687.
The Crooked House has housed a jewellers, a brewery and for the last thirty years, a tea room. But that all looks set to change after Kempton Carr Croft announced they were bringing the quirky building to the commercial property market.
David Pearce, chartered surveyor for Kempton Carr Croft, said: “We work with many different types of property throughout the Thames Valley but it’s always good to market such unusual and character filled buildings like Market Cross house.
“We are looking forward to finding the right purchaser or occupier on behalf of our client.”
Interested parties should email firstname.lastname@example.org or register their requirements via the firm’s website kemptoncarr.co.uk.
