c. 1864 Castle, Cincinnati, Ohio
Well you don't come across castles for sale in America too often --- especially in Ohio. But if you want to be lord of the manor along the Ohio River in Cincinnati, this is probably the only place you can do it. Named "Oakwood", this Norman Romanesque mansion was built between 1859 and 1864. Have to do more research to find out by who -- but whew, he must have had big bucks. The place has 6 bedrooms. 4 full baths and 1 half bath and 8,800 square feet of space on an itty-bitty 1.6 acre lot. Didn't have room to show the kitchen but it's VERY nice. If you've got a big job in Cincinnati and want to live like a king, bring your check book and snap it up for just $2,100,000.
