Fit for a king – Listed home look like real-life setting for Game Of Thrones with $2m.
A recently-listed home really is fit for a king, as it appears to be the perfect setting for a scene in GAME OFTHRONES.
They say that a man’s home is his castle, and with stained-glass windows, artwork on the ceilings, lion statues and a gothic interior, this abode certainly fits the bill.
The 5,500-square-foot home is based in Austin, Texas, and comes with a whopping $2.285 million price tag (£1.83 million).
Featuring four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the property’s Medieval-style does not stop inside – there is also a 14th century stone cottage away from the main residence, and the garden, according to the listing agent, is the most spectacular part.
That exterior won second prize in Good Morning America’s national backyard competition in 2012, and features a swimming pool that is surrounded by trees and columns that look like they could have come from ancient Greece.
According to reports, the current owners, both artist, bought the property in 1992, and have since worked on the intricate details of the home – from the paintings to the carpeting.
Stephanie Nick, the listing agent for Sotheby’s International Realty, said: “Artistically created, the king of this castle shows his labor of love for his wife and family as if he was living in another era.
“It’s a very unique property, and most requests have been from individuals who want to explore the grounds.
“Obviously, we can’t open the doors to the public, but we just started to market this special home to someone who hopefully will share the same desire and passion as the current owners.
“When the sun goes down, the magic starts to happen. It’s amazing!”
