Everyone has heard of King Louis XIV’s Versailles castle in France, but there’s no need to cross the Atlantic to live like the king. Just head south, to Versailles, Kentucky, where this amazing castle is on the market for $30 million.The castle was built by two Americans, Rex and Caroline Martin, who fell in love with Europe’s medieval architecture during a trip in the sixties.
While the fortress was still under construction in 1975, the Martin’s divorced and the castle sat vacant until 2003 when it was purchased for $1.8 million and turned into a bed and breakfast.
Now, just three years later it’s on the market for $28 million more than the purchase price.
