A 6,000-square-foot medieval castle -- made entirely of cinderblocks on 20 acres of pristine and remote land in -Adirondack Park. The castle also is situated so that the view stretches 100 miles in every direction.
Renaissance-themed game room called a "Fungeon."
Wood craftsman Matteo Bartolotta, made a hand-carved ornate kitchen. The kitchen leads to a library, with a wall of books.
Pull the correct book and the wall will swivel to reveal
a secret passage leading to a powder room.
The stairway opens to a 20-foot-high great room.
King and queen's master suites will each consist of a large bedroom with a bathroom and a balcony overlooking the great room. The queen's room will also have a drawbridge at its entrance, should invaders try to capture her.
On the fourth floor are four more bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, each named and designed after a chess piece..
The roof will be outfitted with a wood-heated hot tub, a greenhouse, and an outdoor fireplace. Guests can climb the
60-foot-high turret and look out over the 20-acre property.
