Inspired by the Middle Ages, the castle has its own trap doors, a hidden underground grotto with a jacuzzi, and a dungeon that could be yours for $ 2.3 million.

He wanted to have the house he dreamed of as a child, ”leasing agent Michael Kuligowski told Realtor.com. “Living at home is like living in some kind of childhood dream for someone who grew up as a pagan knight pagan and lived in the Renaissance.”
Covering an area of almost 10,800 square feet, the castle has a total of 26 rooms, which are specially decorated and have hidden surprises.
“Kazakh doors, secret passageways and corridors are just fun and unique. They will amaze your friends and family, “added Kuligowski.
“Even the door hinges are in Victorian style and there are castle-like and timeless details around the house,” he said. “It was designed specifically to be a 15th-century-style English castle.”
The tower, which consists of five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, covers an area of more than 6 acres.
But to want this place, you need someone who is looking for a little adventure. The property, which was first registered in September, has yet to find a buyer.

“They plastered [a stone wall] and then put straw in the same style 500 years ago, they made it with straw as a means of connecting mud walls, ”Kuligowski said.
The castle is the largest house in the community with a high gate.
“It’s the biggest lot, but it’s also the first lot to be developed, so it’s at the back of the neighborhood,” he explained. “There are houses of different architectural styles, but mostly colonial.”
“If someone grew up loving fairy tales or stories, it’s a great fit for the home,” he added.
