      The best detail in that article: The home’s original owner was killed when he was hit by lighting while holding a pitchfork, according to local lore. I’m guessing that’s apocryphal, but what a great story.

      Happy to see this one again, and that’s a fun article!

      This grand house was basically built in 3 phases:
      It started as a Gothic cottage in the Downing/Davis manner for farmer and builder John Thomas in the early 1850’s, mostly visible at the right. Secondly, the large tower and expansion on the left side and behind the original house, for banker John Earle Williams before 1879, designed by architect Edward Delano Lindsey. Another banker, Charles E. Eddison, added the rectangular rear wing after 1900.

      Thanks Kelly for posting these pictures. It’s a wonder why more pics of the inside were not taken. Surely the realtor knows that it’s the woman who chooses the home and will pay close attention to the kitchen. hmmm.

        But homes built during this time had servants that used the kitchen and usually not decorative or large and surely never seen by the family or guests. My dream is to find a house with an original untouched servants kitchen- I want to restore a functional, non-modern kitchen with wooden bakers cabinets and such.

      Hi Kelly, in the photos from the article it shows old rusty metal doors, I am guessing it is a safe? Do you know? Also, are all the elements from the old photos still in the home? I just love this place and would love the task of restoring it back and even adding some true medieval elements. I have access to some incredible items from ancient Spain. I’m just waiting for my inheritance to finalize.

    What an incredible property! I sure hope that someone buys this one and does a proper restoration on it! I will if I win that Powerball tomorrow (in addition to several OTHER properties featured on here)! I’m so happy that you shared it today! Have a great weekend, Kelly!

    This is an amazing price for this house in this condition in this area. I’ve seen this home in person (only from outside) and it’s just breathtaking. The scale is incredible.

    If I had millions…..

    Beautiful place, too bad it’s locked in to such a small area. A castle like this deserves to be surrounded by fields and horse paddocks.

    I’d restore the place and then host fancy parties, small weddings, etc. I bet local photographers would love access for photo shoots. Maybe list some rooms for AirBnB when I felt like it.

    Hopefully it has one stunning kitchen!

    Oh how i wish there was a walk through video with this one. From what there is of it… swoon!

    I’m guessing all these pics are from the two bedroom duplex in back not of the main house. Just a guess, but looking at the article Kelly tagged, it appears to not be the main house.
    It’s incredible! Would love to really see pics of the main house! Whattaproject! Hashtag,,,,,

    From the aerial view, it looked like a Winchester Mystery house.

    OMGosh! All that for only a bit over a million! So sorry there aren’t pics of the main house. Can’t figure out the equipment and brush in the one pic. I was telling a friend about it and we thought the yearly upkeep just on the buildings exteriors would be phenomenal and then there’s the heating bill. Some of the mansions around here claim heating bills of several thousands a month, and they are smaller than this. If I win the lottery tonight, I’ll invite y’all to a party!

    The added on look of this house is what really gives it a lot of character, and kind of like how real European castles were built up over time and centuries. It is very hard to design and build something with this kind of honest and charming quirkiness all at once.

    I wish there were more photos of the interior of the main house. The ones that appear to be currently livable don’t seem to match the main house, or at least not the meant to be public parts of it. Maybe those are in a modernized guest house, hopefully….
