It doesn't really look much like a castle but that's the name attached to today's estate, a historic mansion in Beaufort, South Carolina's Old Point neighborhood. The Greek Revival home was built around 1859 and sits on the intracoastal waterway and is surrounded by live oaks and old gardens. The listing states that the home recently underwent a major restoration that included a new gourmet kitchen with Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf gas stove, Meile dishwasher and an additional ground floor catering kitchen with dual full size Sub-zero wine coolers. The bathrooms have been spruced up with Calcutta gold marble and Waterworks fixtures and the home has a new roof and new HVAC.
It's the old features that attract here, the original wood flooring, the double verandas and the sweeping center hall with a double staircase large enough to flounce down in an antebellum gown. There are six bedrooms and approximatley 7932 square feet of living area. A Forbes report on the house from 2006, when it was listed at $4.5 million, states that the home is haunted by a ghost. And not just any ghost, a dwarf named Grenauche which only appears to sick children. This home is now listed at $3.95 million.
