So what does $30 million get you? A total of 12,000 square feet of
pure opulence and everything inside of it, from the china to the artwork.
The castle was purchased in 2003 by Tom Post, a Miami attorney.
Only a few months after the sale a fire damaged portions of the palace.
Reconstruction began and included 16 bedrooms, a music room,
library and man cave, but that's not all the home has to offer. An elevator
ride to the third floor revealed a perfect spot for entertaining.
"This is the roof garden and we have big events here and we
have a bar on one corner there," Martin said.
The roof also features turrets on every corner and a view of the
private tennis court.
We just had to check out the apartments inside providing
unforgettable experiences, especially for one newlywed couple who locked
themselves out of the tower.
"The young fellow had to scale down the wall in his underwear
and knock on the door of the castle. It was the middle of winter," Martin
recalled with a chuckle.
In addition to newlyweds the castle has hosted stars like William
Shatner and Faith Hill.
"Saudi princess rent the place for two weeks. We had Rolex
here for the world equestrian games."
So why sell?
Martin says the market for high ticket real estate is hot with
interest pouring in from Chinese and Russian millionaires.
"Everyday is a fishing day, but not everyday is a catching
day. That's why I have it listed to catch the big fish," Martin said.
So if touring the castle or staying here overnight is on your
bucket list you may want to do that soon. There's no guarantee the castle will
be open to the public once it's sold.
