This Foreclosed Detroit Castle is a Total Steal at Less Than a Half Mil
There's something royal about being the king or queen of your castle, even if it's just metaphorically, right? But this Detroit home, built to resemble a 19th-century castle in the United Kingdom, will make someone feel like an actual king or queen.
According to the listing, there's currently an offer pending on this 8,000-square-foot mansion, as the price is listed at just under half a million bucks.
About This Castle
The home was built in 1925 and its design was roughly based on that of a 19th-century United Kingdom castle. There are seven bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and one half-bath.
The house technically has a Detroit address but it is actually just south of Ferndale, not far from the Detroit Zoo and Palmer Park. Its steep-pitched roof and numerous overhangs make it a true Tudor-style home, built in the early 1920s.
"Step inside and be dazzled by long arched hallways, intricate custom millwork, and a great hall fit for a modern-day king and queen," the listing touts.
We're intrigued by the kitchen. While it is spacious and roomy like a modern-day kitchen, it features red appliances. Have you ever seen a red refrigerator before?
The listing boasts that the home has endless possibilities and that one could really make it their own with modern updates - yes, that is code for a fixer-upper.
