TOWAMENSING TOWNSHIP, CARBON COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — If you’ve been dreaming of feeling like royalty… Now is your chance! You can actually buy a castle for Christmas, and you don’t have to go far!
“The opportunity is one of a kind,” said Mary Ann Pastore, realtor.
It’s not everyday a castle goes up for sale, but in Carbon County you could buy your very own replica of a castle in Spain, El Castillo de los Mendoza.
“It’s like a little hidden gem, but there’s nothing little about,” said Pastore.
The 15-thousand square foot castle could be yours for $1.69 million. It has a lower level, main level and upper level.
“The view is spectacular,” said Pastore.
The castle sits on Lakeside Drive in Towamensing Rownship, overlooking Beltzville Lake.
Along with the castle, and the view, the price also includes 25-acres of land.
“It’s like a dream. It’s a dream come true for the right person,” said Pastore.
Pastore tells me the current owner has been meticulous as he spent years building this castle himself, but unforseen events have forced him to put it on the market before it’s completely finished.
“The bones are up. The structure is up. It’s all cinder block,” said Pastore.
The outside still needs to be covered with natural stone. As for the inside… It’s up to the buyer! But Pastore says there’s a lot of potential.
“The rooms here are enormous,” she said.
It also has some special features; geothermal wells power radiant heating in the floors throughout the home.
“This castle will stand for centuries and will be a landmark to the area,” said the realtor.
Because of current zoning laws in that township, the castle can only be sold as a residence at this time.
