Must-See Connecticut Castle Back on the Market

There are certain places you’d expect to find a castle. Say France, Italy, or even Ireland. But suburban Connecticut?

The intrigue of this distinctive castle in Woodstock, CT, continues to captivate the internet.

Like with a fairy-tale romance, gawkers can’t seem to quit this wild residence. In fact, it was last week’s most popular home. And in 2014, it was even the most-viewed home of the year.

The home was relisted this month for $35,000,000, which is a $3 million increase from its 2016 list price but a big decrease from the $45 million the homeowner sought in 2014.

Prospective suitors should know that the 75-acre lot (sans home) was sold for $167,500 in 2003, with the castle built seven years later.

Fit for royalty, the palatial 18,777-square-foot home features nine bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. In true castle style, the entry is connected by a bridge and encircled by a moat.

A railed terrace extends the entire width of the residence. Imagine what your holiday-card photos might look like!

Diamond-inlaid windows as well as beveled-glass windows contribute to the regal appeal. A dozen fireplaces keep the place cozy during winter. Entertaining will be a breeze—who wouldn’t want to show off their private castle?—thanks to the massive main kitchen with custom cabinetry, warming ovens, a Wolf range, wine fridge, and custom tower of spices at the ready. The secondary kitchen is just a tad smaller, used for hosting large parties or events.

Speaking of parties, the 4,500-square-foot lower level opens to the outdoors and folds in a fireplace and circular bar. There is also an auditorium and stage for hosting your favorite bands. Come winter you won’t have to worry about slipping and falling on the home’s deck and patios as the radiant floor heating extends to the exterior spaces.

Hardwoods used in the home’s construction didn’t come just from the Northeast nor were they sourced solely from North America. They were shipped in from around the globe.

The design inspiration for this castle’s interiors skews historical, with stained-glass windows and doors throughout. The cloud-motif ceiling in the entry and living room—along with the main kitchen—makes the castle feel even more worldly than its Connecticut perch.

A regal sight to behold, the one-of-a-kind castle also overlooks the 30-acre Potter Pond.

The listing is represented by John Pizzi of Randall, Realtors.
