Yes, You DO Deserve to Live in a Castle on 150 Acres!
by Elizabeth Finkelstein
I was completely blown away when this incredible listing landed on CIRCA! Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1971, Redstone Castle is a turn-of-the-century jewel on 150 acres completed in 1902 for industrialist and coal magnate John Cleveland Osgood. At the time, Osgood rubbed elbows with the likes of John D. Rockefeller, J. Pierpont Morgan and Teddy Roosevelt (who all spent time at the estate). In 2006, the property was used in the filming of the Hollywood movie The Prestige.
It’s up for auction with a reserve of $2,000,000. I’ll be playing the lottery for this one! See the full listing over at Platinum Luxury Auctions.
