Most Expensive Homes on the Market: See Inside This Castle in Virginia

Cue “O Fortuna,” because this mansion is epic. It’s three hours outside DC, but with nearly 30,000 square feet of living space, it could make a sweet weekend getaway for you and your two dozen closest friends. The main house—the one that looks like a Disney attraction—boasts 15,696 square feet and 11 bedrooms and bathrooms. Add in the four guest homes on the 273-acre property and you get a total of 25 bedrooms and 21 baths.

The estate dates back to 1848 and comes with lots of historic touches, including ornate crown molding, built-in bookcases, and nine fireplaces. You also get your own conference center with a “community kitchen,” an indoor racquetball court, a tennis court, and a swimming pool. The grounds are filled with manicured hedges, neoclassical-style sculptures, and stone pathways leading to the guest cottages.

The house is on the market for $5.49 million. Take a peek at the pictures below, then head to the Rob and Brent Group of TTR Sotheby International for complete details.
