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

It could be yours for $5.5 million.

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.
