Calling All Kings and Queens: You Can Own a Castle in Indiana For Just $400,000


You can be the king (or queen) of your very own castle for a mere $400,000.

Located less than two hours from Cincinnati, this regal Charlestown, Indiana property has everything you could want in your next home: a secret door that leads to a bar, a 10-car garage and nearly eight acres of land.

The property beneath the castle was historically used as a water reserve for a nearby ammunition plant. In 1997, the homeowners built a castle on the grounds.

Unique details are featured throughout the home, like Medieval-looking doors made by the homeowners from the wood that covered the reservoir; secret doorways; enormous chandeliers hanging in the vaulted and beamed formal dining room; and a bronze dragon-bedecked knocker with a decal above it reading "Pipi Room," aka pee-pee room (realtor Denise Taylor tells CityBeat this is the door – and signage — for the restroom).

The home features 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and spans over 2,700 square feet.
