Peek Inside a Castle in New York City
This Medieval-inspired mansion, on the market for $3.65 million, overlooks Manhattan.
Who needs a cozy pied-à-terre when you can have your own sprawling private castle overlooking NYC? A 10-bedroom, 5,158-square-foot French provincial-style Bronx estate, built by Frank J. Forster and located in the exclusive Fieldston community of Riverdale, is listed for for $3.65 million – roughly the price of a Manhattan apartment. The castle, which was reportedly built to mimic original owner Giuseppe Cosulich's 16th-century family estate in Croatia, will reportedly be converted into a hotel. The property has all the exterior charm of a castle, including all original floors and woodwork, stone walls, flagstone-paved wall garden, a turret and forged ironwork, but the interior has been completely restored to include all the modern luxury amenities one would need for posh castle living. A completely refurbished kitchen includes Sub-Zero refrigerator, marble countertops, two dishwashers and sinks, and modern cabinetry.
