Most attainable of castles asks $575,000

Haters gonna say this isn’t a castle

Some people ("haters," in the common parlance) might claim that this castle in Genoa, Illinois is not a castle. They might claim that real castles don’t have ground-floor windows, or aluminum roofing, or Angry Birds shower curtains. But to those people, we have three questions:

  1. Does it have a turret?
  2. Is there a suit of armor inside?
  3. Is there some interior stonework?

If the answer to all three of those questions is "yes" (and it is) then, sorry, this is a castle. And it’s asking $575,000, which makes it pretty affordable as far as castles go.
