“Game of Thrones” fans now have the chance to live in one of the actual castles that was used for filming… and it costs less than the average house in most big cities.
Part of Gosford Castle, which was used as the Riverrun exterior for season 3, is up for grabs, with the starting price on Maison Real Estate being £500,000 (around C$855,000).
The venue is located in Northern Ireland and was the setting for scenes such as Robb Stark’s execution of Rickard Karstark.
According to the Maison website, the castle, which was built in the mid-1800s, has over 15 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.
The listing added that the partially developed property could also house six apartments, each boasting an average space of 3,500 square feet.
The site stated, “In 2006 the castle was bought by Gosford Castle Development Limited who put forward a £4M proposal to restore the Grade A listed building into 23 luxury residences. The restoration was undertaken by artisans and craftsmen with a focus on retaining the character and historic integrity of the castle.”
“Particular care was taken to use existing features such as staircases and vaulted ceilings and even to use original colour schemes wherever possible. These apartments are extremely popular and command great interest when they are placed on the market.”
“The possibilities are endless and only on inspection can this castle and its beautiful location be truly appreciated.”
