If you’ve ever been curious about what a modern-day interpretation of a castle might look like, this home in Boise, Idaho, ought to give you a clear picture. Built in 2010, it is strictly of the contemporary age, but its stone work, turret, and battlements are taken straight from the Middle Ages.

Although it’s been on and off the market for a couple of years, it’s back on and priced to sell, at $2,775,000. For that hefty haul, you get 5,845 square feet of moody, dark interiors finished with dark wood trim and paneling, stone fireplaces, and iron detailing, to name a few.

As for bedrooms there are five, with six full bathrooms and another partial one, with spacious common areas including a round, formal dining room, a huge kitchen, and private outdoor living.

In addition to a stone patio and a lawn, there are several rooftop terraces, including a hot tub atop one of the towers, an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, and a greenhouse. Made with hand-cut, 90 percent locally sourced Idaho sandstone and reclaimed hardwood, the property is located at 1700 East Warm Springs Avenue. Go on, be the ruler of your kingdom—or at least a castle. What say you, yea or nay? Oh, did we mention that Bitcoin is accepted?
