A lakefront castle with racetrack
- Johnson City, Tenn.
- $4.3 million
Everyone says their home is their castle. But in this case, it's literally true.
And that castle could be yours, if you have $4.3 million to spend on your next home.
While it doesn't have a moat (or a fire-breathing dragon), it does have a pool, its own movie theater and an on-site British pub.
Modeled after the Magdalena Palace in Spain, this castle took 10 years to complete and was finished in 2003, says Miryana Eichelberger, affiliate broker with Alliance Sotheby's International Realty.
European craftsmen created many of the one-of-a-kind details, such as the custom plaster moldings, the hand-carved entryway and the 22-foot door, she says. "When you see the property in person, it's unbelievable."
At 24,000 square feet, it has nine bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and four powder rooms -- and it sits on 13 lakefront acres, Eichelberger says. The master suite includes two separate bathrooms, each with its own walk-in closet.
If your interest veers more toward Ferraris than fairy tales, it also comes with its own racetrack and a 4,000-square-foot fully heated and cooled garage. Fit for a king -- or his best gas-powered steed.
