The old Clare Island Lighthouse off the coast of Ireland makes for a stunning piece of property. Built in 1806, covering approximately 3,600 square feet and sporting three round rooms, this luxurious compound is complete with refurbished towers and multiple outbuildings. This home will certainly keep the wind in your hair and a salty breeze through your window. The price is $2.835 million.
An Italian convent in Tuscany was restored in 2003 to suit a new household. With simple austerity and 1,000+ years of beautiful aging makes this property a unique find for any homeowner. With nearly an acre of grounds and gardens and a possible annex ready for some sprucing up this home sounds like it is worth the $1.755 million.
Although I don't picture myself as a fairytale princess I have always wanted to live in a castle. Drafty but full of history, culture, and ambiance. This Belgian castle is no different. For $4.25 million, the 18th century castle sits on ten acres of land and includes a swimming pool, tennis court and pond. Holding eight rooms and four baths it would be magnificent for a holiday vacation!
