“Game of Thrones” type house for sale in Michigan, with moat, drawbridge, dungeon, secret passages
ROCHESTER, MI – You could throw some epic mystery dinners at this “Game of Thrones” type house, which just hit the market. It’s as close to living in a medieval castle as it gets.
Located on Victoria Hill Drive in Rochester in the Metro Detroit area and for sale for $ 2.29 million, this 10,790 square foot chateau sits on over 6 acres and is surrounded by a wrought iron fence and two closed towers. You can get a taste of the house in the photo gallery above.
The five-story house is 60 feet high. The frame was built with 60 tons of steel. Inside there are 26 rooms, some of which are hidden. There are even secret passages and a hidden tower with a 50 foot high spiral staircase.
“This is season 9 of ‘Game of Thrones’,” Nicholas Asplund of Lux Partners Global enthusiastically told MLive of the house. “The build quality and cost are unmatched and could not be achieved today for less than $ 15,000,000. The surprises are endless. You really have to see it to believe it.
The owner of the house brought in people from all over the world to help him build over a six-year period in the 1990s.
“It’s just a straight medieval castle,” Asplund said. “The owner had a lot of money and when he was building this house he told the designers what he wanted and they brought in people from all over, sourcing all over the world. They spared no expense. It’s super solid and massive. I mean, it’s built of stone and steel.
The house is at the rear of a gated community. There is another gate that leads to a winding road with the house on top of a hill. The whole of six hectares is surrounded by a wrought iron fence.
To enter the house you have to cross the drawbridge over the moat and waterfall before crossing the portcullis at the main entrance.
Inside there are five fireplaces, six stoves, a wine cellar and a Tudor-style pub. There is also a secret underground cave with jacuzzi, a hidden dungeon, a fitness center, a billiard room, a library with a loft and a home theater.
On top of all this there is an elevator with 10 foot tall oak cars and mirrors. There are six balconies outside and two more inside. There is also an indoor car park with room for four vehicles.
There are four bedrooms with an additional fifth bedroom. There are five full baths and two half baths. Finally, there is an adjacent 1200 square foot chateau, which is the garage and workshop.
