The Gothic Castle

I’m a castle-a-holic. I have seen, and even slept in, many of the most beautiful castles and palaces in the world, and this one is similar to many of them, except for one fact: it is here, so close to New York City! Each room is so stunning, brilliant, and fabulous that one cannot possibly believe that the next room could be even better…but it is.

Square footage: 6,000 interior, 1 acre of stepped landscaping (Ballroom, music room, Turkish room, boudoir, tower room, chapel, conservatory, observatory, billiard room, loft room, entry hall, kitchen and more.)

  • Furniture, artwork and props as seen in the pictures

The Arabesque Victorian

Geometric patterns mimicking nature appear everywhere in this gorgeous Victorian manse. In the archways, the pediments, tower, woodwork, and especially in the magnificent stained glass. Islamic features are present throughout its design but there is also a Germanic influence in the stained glass. Sitting high upon a hill, the house has splendid water views from many windows. The attic features a creepy, coffin-shaped tunnel to the tower.

Square footage: 4,500 interior, 1/3 acre (24 rooms with 6 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, 6 fireplaces, 24 stained glass windows)

Amenities/Details:

  • Furniture, artwork and props as seen in the pictures
  • Parking on the property and street for trailers and cars
  • A pretty yard with intricate stone paths, a pond, and a stone well
  • An antique garage

The Old Grand Dame Victorian

A grand old Victorian mansion filled to the brim with velvet, knickknacks and antiques. Ancestor tin-type photographs and painted portraits stare down stoicly from wallpapered walls. Intricate patterns adorn every surface of this lovely old mansion. I picture friendly, teetotaler ghosts innocently haunting by creaking the rocking chair as they sit and embroider.

Square footage: 15,000 square feet (Foyer, ladies parlour, gentlemens’s parlour, library, dining room, kitchen, many bedrooms and bathrooms)
