For Sale: A House Built Like A Castle

For Sale: A House Built Like A Castle

There is a house built to look like a castle on the street behind me that has been for sale for a while.  All it lacks is a water moat and Rapunzel’s hair.  It really is a site to see and I have wanted to feature it for a long time.

The real estate listing calls this house “fairy tale living at its finest with 8800 square feet of spectacular and breathtaking conceptual living.  This home has amenities and luxuries too numerous to mention, all in a timeless setting designed to stimulate your senses.  You will absolutely love this home!  Hand-scraped Walnut Hardwood Floors, 6 Bay Garage, Solarium, Courtyard Living. and an Au Pair/Related Living Space.”

It has 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, was built in 2008, and is listed $1,249,999.  You’ll see as you scroll through this castle home tour what the agent means by conceptual living.

I took a ride and got some photos back in 2013, but my photos were not very clear.

I’ve shared fairytale castles and homes lately and this house built like a castle is a must see to believe.

House built like a castle for sale The walkway from the driveway to the front door of this house looks like a moat. You can’t drive by this home without gawking, not that I would ever do that.

Townhouse Home Tour – Sassy Townhouse Living

Today is a fun home tour of my friend Carolann’s home. I have admired Caroalann’s Lifestyle blog, Sassy Townhouse Living – Sharing the Best of Everything, since I found her on Facebook one day. Then I started looking for and following her fun blog.

Carolann and her husband have a beautiful townhouse in Pennsylvania. She loves decorating, refurbishing furniture, doing crafts and cooking. She recommends products she uses that are not sponsored posts. Carolann is more than a nerd, she is a go to person for how-to do things online like backing up your computer. She is a data mind about gadgets and gizmos and does a series about them. Well, she has a few more tricks up her sleeve, but I’ll let you visit her site to explore and find out for yourself.

Let’s get on with our Townhouse Home Tour and enjoy Sassy Carolann’s home decor.

Townhouse Home Tour - Front Porch Patio Bistro set by Sassy Townhouse Living - Housekaboodle At the entrance Carolann redid her front patio area by replacing a bench with this fun Bistro Set she found at Target. She added the upper gray cushions for more comfort and color. The cushions and Bistro set look fantastic against her gray porch. Now I want to head to Target and look for a set like this. READ MORE

Small Cape Cod House in Maine is the Most Adorable

Small Cape Cod House in Maine is the Most Adorable

I found the most adorable small cape cod house in Bristol, Maine way up north in snow country. If you’re experiencing a lot of snow this winter, think about Maine where quite possibly this kind of snow and winter cold is the expected norm.

Nevermind that, this cape cod has to be the sweetest home waiting out the long winter and is just perfect for a new home or a place to hang your hat on vacation.  I don’t have a hat, but I’d love to have this nice cape cod house.

For sale and the listing says it’s in New Harbor, ME/ Bristol ME. I’ve been to Maine before virtually at my friend’s vacation cottages Periwinkle and Serendipity in Little Deer Isle which is south of Bristol, Maine. Oh they are the sweetest little rental units, If you have not seen them yet, take the home tour. Don’t get lost over there though and come back to see today’s little cape cod doll of a house.
