    Fantastic landmark.Wow! I could have fun making flower gardens all through here. I wonder if the house has a good foundation? It is great history, I do wish it was kept up better. 🙂

    I studied this place a bit when it was last sold a few years back. The livable portion was mostly built about 30 years ago around a stone structure built by Bouck White. White lived in the Castle, which burnt many years ago. It’s a nice location with a view and the house looks to be much improved in recent years, but is still pretty funky.

    Anyone buying this property would never have to worry about any look-alike houses nearby. Four and a half acres and a livable ruin would appeal mainly to very creative types, I would think.

    So it’s the “White Castle?” LOL. I love it. I want it moved to my yard.

    Edward Scissorhands would be right at home here.

    So what’s the deal with this? How can it be a “ruin” when it was only built in 1935?

    I am thinking this would be an ideal location for a medieval wedding. Someone with business smarts could buy this property and use it for some really great events.
