30 Buildings That Would Make The Perfect Evil Villain Lairs (New Pics)

Movies and comic books love to show villains living in some sort of sinister-looking headquarters. After all, a skull-shaped volcano island or a Death Star sounds a lot more intimidating than a suburban McMansion or a single-bedroom flat in downtown Seattle.

The subreddit is entirely dedicated to the most sinister-looking buildings out there, and with over 900k members, it’s never short of new content.

In fact, bathroom designs changed quite dramatically over the last 500 years – and UK company QS Supplies wanted to show people how and why these changes happened.

UK’s Smallest Castle Is For Sale And It Costs No More Than A Mid-Sized Flat In London

Finally, you might get a step closer to living in a fairytale, because Britain’s smallest castle is up for grabs, and it costs no more than a mid-sized flat in London!

The property in question is Molly’s Lodge, a Grade II listed castle that sits on a 0.61-acre plot of land near the village of Long Compton in Warwickshire. Originally a gatehouse for the Weston Park Estate on the northern edge of the Cotswolds, Molly’s Lodge was built by the famous British architect, Edward Blore, in the 1830s. The very same guy who was in charge of restoring Lambeth Palace and extending Buckingham Palace for Queen Victoria.

Inside, it’s a fully functioning home, with one bedroom, a bathroom, living room, decorative spiral staircase and dining room complete with mullion windows and cast iron Victorian fireplace.

For those seriously interested, it costs £550,000 and you can express your interest before the 19th of April through here. (h/t: cosmopolitan)

Take a look inside:

There’s also Molly’s Mews in the property…
