A Medieval Castle in Idaho
Compared to other real estate listings, this one is pretty odd. The single-family home is 8,000 square feet and sits on 8.6 acres, including frontage on Lake Pend Oreille. But it only has two bedrooms, and the only heating sources are the fireplaces. We understand wanting to live in a castle, but most castle homes in the US have modern amenities hidden in the construction. It was built in 2022 and is not completely finished, but is already for sale.
16th-Century Haunted Castle for Sale
Imagine living in a Scottish castle with ten bedrooms on 53 acres. This is Earlshall Castle, built beginning in 1546 by Sir William Bruce. The Bruce family occupied Earlshall castle for generations, including the infamous Sir Andrew Bruce, who earned the nickname "Bloody Bruce." This may have been because of the time he cut off the head of Richard Cameron, leader of the Covenanters in 1680. Or it could have been just because he was a bloodthirsty warrior in general. But the upshot is that the ghost of Bloody Bruce is said to have never left Earlshall, even though the Bruces died out in 1708. Some have heard his footsteps on the castle's spiral staircase. Would that cause you to think twice about buying this property?Besides the ten bedrooms, there are six bathrooms, eight reception rooms, a five-car garage, three cottages, a forest, a variety of gardens, and 19 acres of pasture. Earlshall castle is in Fife, with easy access to Dundee and Edinburgh. There are many golf courses and a beach nearby. The listing from Savills has details on Earlshall Castle, but you have to submit an application to find out the price. Still, anyone can see pictures of what's inside and out.

The Sicilian Castle from The Godfather III Can Be Yours
If you've ever had a yearning to live on the slope of Mt. Etna near the Ionian Sea, here's your chance. But it ain't cheap. Piazza Agostino Pennisi has 22 bedrooms and eight bathrooms in its 43,055 square foot interior.

It is listed with Sotheby's for $6,819,732. If you are wondering why such an odd amount, that's €6,000,000.

A Panel Truck Turned into a Fantasy Castle
When you live in an RV or a converted van, you expect to live in a compact manner. Yeah, there are some campers that expand slightly with moveable panels, but none of them transform the way this truck does! New Zealanders Justin and Jola travel a lot (Jola is an acrobat), so Justin designed a home they and their son Piko could move about in and call home. The truck looks big, but once it's parked and set up, you'll wonder how they ever got all that stuff in there in the first place.

A Home Tour Conducted by a Knight in Full Armor
It never hurts to add a little extra to get the internet's attention! Tim and Shelly Bemis own a 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom house that resembles a castle in Chattaroy, Washington. That castle is for sale, and the Bemises knew that they would need to get the word out across the country to attract the right buyer. So for staging the real estate pictures and video, they hired an armorist to act as tour guide! He wore 100 pounds of armor in 100-degree heat to get the job done. While the home is nice, it wasn't out-of-the-ordinary until Sir Tour Guide invited us in. Read more aboutthis marketing scheme at Digg, along with some charming easter eggs they found in the video.
