Dig Dracula’s Domicile

Bran Castle, Transylvania, Romania

It’s Dracula’s castle! For sale!

Okay so I wasn’t technically able find an actual “listing” for this one, since the sale offering is apparently being handled by a law firm. There are lots of photos on this article, as well as info about how much the castle will set you back.

The asking price is reportedly in the $80 million-range, though “If someone comes in with a reasonable offer, we will look at who they are, what they are proposing, and will seriously entertain the idea,” says Mark Meyer, who works for the New York law firm in charge of the sale.

    That’s a nice video at Bran-Castle.com, with a welcome from one of the Hapsburg clan, no less. Color me impressed. You can see from the video (which has a hauntingly lovely musical accompaniment) that the home is close to town, though, being on the heights above, has spectacular views. There’s also a really nice lawn out back, as well as a good sized guest house.

    The pics at the main listing link have numerous good interior shots. The Medieval styling features hand-carved wood and stone structures with white washed walls and genuine hard wood floors, as well as rich jewel tone fabrics, leather, and majolica tile accents. A delightful courtyard shows off the terra cotta tiled towers and half-timbered open air galleries.

    On the upside, there are neither kitchen nor dining room images of meals in progress at any of the links. On the downside, the price is just too bloody high, fang you very much.

    (Great job on finding pics and info, Marty. Thanks!)

  2. If I had the money, I would love to own a piece of history like this, or at least consider myself a steward until a rightful Romanian had the heart and means to take care of it.

    @Frodo: A heart that didn’t have a stake through it, you mean?

  4. @Emerald63: Exactly!
