You'll Live Like a King in this BC Castle
If you’ve ever dreamed of being the King or Queen of your own castle, this may be your chance! This extraordinary home was built in 2011 to resemble a 15th century castle – with all the luxuries of modern life of course.
Located near the small community of Cherryville in the northern Thompson-Okanagan region, this castle can be yours for $3.45 million.
The castle stands at approximately 3,124 sq.ft., including four bedrooms and six bathrooms, on a gated 8.8 acre estate. Nestled among the trees, the castle enjoys 612’ of river frontage on the Shuswap River, where you can literally zip across the river to your own private island. There is also 700’ frontage on Cherry Creek.
“Passionate about architecture, these original owners painstakingly researched 15th century castles, falling in love with their soaring ceilings, arched doorways and large, multiple rooms and modernized the build to commercial grade specifications,” states the Sotheby’s International Realty listing.
To access the 8’ arched mahogany front door, you will first have to cross the wide planked drawbridge. Worry not; the waters of the moat are filled with koi, not crocodiles.
Of course, being a “castle”, the estate must be able to withstand an extended siege! To this end, the home is serviced by a water well, river water rights, a private septic system, and a radiant heat pellet burning boiler system.
Not to be forgotten is the massive 3,000 square foot rooftop patio complete with timber framed outdoor kitchen. There is also a triple garage to store your carriages and noble steeds.
The 8.8 acre estate boats manicured paths, gardens and meadows, as well as a rustic caretakers cottage.
This extraordinary British Columbia home and property is perfect for the romantic, nature lover or family looking to raise their children in a one of kind atmosphere.
