Castle

I'm ready to buy a castle

Do you remember way back when I posted about the Worst Rooms in New York City.  Well now feast your eyes on this BuzzFeed article that shows the castle you could buy for the same price as a NYC apartment.  Here is a taste (and I will be plagiarizing):

PRICE: $1,621,200    This 13,993-square-foot, 6-bedroom castle sits on 24 acres of land overlooking the countryside of Midi Pyrenees. Features include a large entrance hall opening to the courtyard, salon with a fireplace, grand staircase, elevator, large dining   room with fireplace, two kitchens, a bedroom wing with a hall onto the courtyard, study rooms in the towers, two garages, and access to the chapel and east wing.

The Castle

As you might already know, I am currently working on a TV show which films at a castle outside of Vienna, Austria.  What is interesting about this castle is that it was built in the 19th century on the ruins of a demolished medieval castle.  The current structure is sort of frankensteined from authentic looking castle bits, purchased all over Europe.  

This makes it amazing as a filming location.  It look great, but it isn't a protected historical site.  Film crews are like a stampede that leave a trail of destruction and water bottles.  Hopeful our crew will be a little kinder to the environment than most (fingers crossed).
