This Guy Spent 7 Years Building An Enormous Medieval Castle… Now It’s For Sale

This gothic and eerie 35,000-square-foot castle can be yours for a mere $45 million. It’s a Transylvania like oasis built right in the heart of Connecticut. It’s not exactly in the old world, but hey — you can make believe you’re in the medieval period all you like (if you’re into that). It was constructed in 2001 and took 7 years to complete. After the original builder, Christopher Mark, went through a sticky breakup and few bad business deals, he put it up on the market.
