Holiday like a king – Casterly rock style property for sale
This is a holiday destination fit for a king.
The unusual four bedroom castle is on the market in Spain for just £691,000 (€760,000).
Perched high above the Costa del Sol, it looks like a real life Casterly Rock and a perfect home for a Lannister.
But there are a few modern cons that would be completely new to Jaime, Cersei and Tyrion.
Despite its medieval looks, work on the castle only began in 1997 and took seven years to complete.
It means that as well as a crenelated roof and fully functioning drawbridge, the property also comes with air conditioning, heating, an underground garage, a barbecue area and a swimming pool.
A spokesperson for AIDA Inmobiliaria, which is selling the property, said: “This villa, designed and built as a real castle, includes all the commodities and services expected to be found in a modern luxury house.
“The castle is fully furnished with exquisite taste and decorated with antique and original features including a castle tower, gargoyles, drawbridge, stylish iron bars on windows, lordly lamps and armour.
“It includes a 1300 square metre garden in which you will find a nice swimming pool, decorative fountain, sunbeds, grass lawn, fruit trees, decorative plants, shaded porch and barbecue area.
“From the solarium and the top of the tower you can enjoy 360 degree views over the sea and mountains.”
The new owner would not have to worry about break-ins when they were away from their seat of power.
The home has security bars on the entrance and in the windows, a burglar alarm, a safe, and a safety conscious owner can also raise the drawbridge.
The listing states the property would make a “great business plot” with the potential to rent out the castle for short term holidays, weekends, parties and weddings.
The ground floor garage was recently converted into a fully self-sufficient apartment.
The home has also been used as a location for photoshoots and films.
Its current owner now lives alone in the property and is looking to sell to move closer to his children, despite the construction of the castle having been a lifelong dream.
The spokesperson said: “It took the owner seven years to finish it – it was his own idea, his own project, and he was not in a hurry to finish it.
“During those seven years he looked for the best building materials throughout Spain.
“The gargoyles and outdoor decorating features are original, and the decorations inside, such as the armour, shields and swords, come all the way from Toledo.”
