Connecticut Castle
Realtor / SmartMLS

Connecticut Castle

Woodstock, Connecticut

$60 million 


This isn't Hogwarts, but it's close enough. Sitting on a massive 75-acre lot with towers that reach 126 feet into the sky, this 18,777-square-foot single-family home is a bit more expensive than neighboring digs, which are largely priced at under $400,000. Luckily, the castle does come with its own moat if the neighbors get too jealous, and two stone lions to protect the front gate.
