Live Like Midwest Royalty in This $2 Million Illinois Castle
I think all of us could say that at one point in our lives, we thought about how cool it would be to live in a castle. You might have even pretended as a kid to be a king, queen, knight, or jester - in fact, there are some adults that spend quite a bit of time and money pretending that. Well, you don't have to pretend anymore - here is your chance to live in your own real-life castle. There are only two stipulations - you gotta move to Illinois, and you'll need to come up with about $2 million.
Live Like a King!
This modern-day castle features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a total of 7,546 square feet. Other royal amenities include a private pool (both in-ground and indoors), indoor and outdoor hot tubs, a balcony, a wrap-around deck, a gazebo, a fountain (and a naked man standing in it), and parking for up to 12 vehicles. And like a real castle, this home is surrounded by a moat featuring real, live alligators. Not really, I made that up - I just wanted to see if you were paying attention. The castle is surrounded by trees which I imagine provide some much-coveted privacy.
According to Zillow, this unique home located at 3 Saville Row in Barrington, Illinois (even the address sounds royal) is listed at $1.9 million.
Take a Royal (Virtual) Tour
Take a minute to look through the pictures below. I found myself saying "whoa" several times. The outside obviously has the appearance of a castle, but the inside appears to have all of the modern-day comforts you can think of. It all seems pretty normal until, BAM, you reach that one bedroom - you'll know it when you see it.
