Yup, I’m a sucker for castles

Even totally fake castles that were actually built in 1996.

I mean, look at that roof line. What’s not to love?

Inside is pretty sweet too, with lots of hardwood.

And then they had to go and ruin it with carpet and tacky ceiling fans. Oh and also by putting it in Fort Worth, Texas.

  1. Besides the carpeting and ceiling fans, the kitchen, bar, and bathrooms don’t follow the theme – very contemporary looking.

    Still… it’s a fun place. No grand design talent at work, either architecturally or decoratively, but fun just the same. Except maybe for the billiards room. Is it just me or does it look like one would be hard pressed to shoot pool in that cramped space? Might be better if the pool table and the formal dining table were swapped spaces.

    If there are no interested single-family buyers, this would make a sweet bed-and-breakfast locale. Hey… they could even put in a miniature train line! :D

    Oh dear… I just went to find info on an “authentic” 125 year old castle B&B my husband and I stayed at several years ago, only to find it closed in late 2012. :( There are still an article and photos available, though, for anyone who’s interested: http://www.kansas.com/2012/12/13/2603290/an-inside-look-at-the-castle-inn.html. The photo gallery link is just to the left of the first paragraph.

    So… maybe no B&B in Fort Worth after all?

  2. Cool place, interior design nightmare. C’mon folks, keep the theme going inside and really make it awesome!

  3. Looking at this home gives me the urge to sit at the dining table with a turkey leg and demand some Hasenpfeffer. Preferably prepared by a red-haired, diminutive cowboy. Yes, yes, that makes perfect sense to me.

  4. @JMixx: Well, we are talkin’ Texas… so there are plenty of rabbits and cowboys around. Sounds like a plan!

  5. While good recliners redeem a multitude of sins for me… I’ll have to pass on this one. There really isn’t much you can do to conceal the awful fact that you’re in, well, Texas. ;)
