I actually love castles because my husband and that i are desendents of the Scotsirish clans, and My aspect has a family castle with co possession that is a mattress and breakfast in Eire.
That’s part of the American dream, I guess! With international invasions on the mainland since our founding, it makes sense that we might build castles “only for fun.”
I actually just like the Singer castle too! And you realize, Jesus did say that “In my home there are numerous mansions… if it weren’t so I would have instructed you.” 🙂

I really like the concept of residing on an island…. in a castle no much less! Undoubtedly the Singer castle.
I agree– unless you have got a giant household or like entertaining tons of of friends at a time, it could be tough to be surrounded by such an enormous empty (of individuals) building. That is why many castle house owners keep it as a trip rental or charge vacationers for tours. Additionally they are commonly used as destination wedding places.
Thanks for reading!
