Fairy tale castle complete with stained glass windows goes on the market for $675 

A New York fairytale-like castle complete with stained glass windows has gone on the market for $675,000. 

The two-acre property in Lake Peekskill is complete with stained glass windows and panoramic views. 

Built in 1935 at a time when summer homes were the only other properties in the area, the property on Tanglewylde Road is assuredly unique. 

‘It’s a custom-built castle in an area where there are no castles,’ listing agent Ken Wile said. 

‘At the time [it was built], the area was a bunch of summer homes, like small bungalows. Nobody lived here year-round.’

The castle measures 1,644 square feet and features three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms.

Just like something straight out of a fairy tale, the castle is a ten minute walk away from a picturesque lake. 

‘It’s actually the second-largest property on the whole lake, and the largest one is the one next door,’ Wile said.

'The outside area with the fire pit is off the kitchen and the dining room. When the weather's nice, that's the place to be. It's private and has a great view,' the listing agent said

According to Wile, the ideal buyer will fall into one of two groups. 'It's either an end user, someone who wants it either as a weekend or full-time house. Or someone who just wants an investment to rent it out'

‘Or someone who just wants an investment to rent it out,’ he said. 

‘It’s been renting out for $500 a night, and that’s what provides it an additional value. As a single-family house alone, it’s worth a certain price, but when you count the income that it’s currently getting and future potential, it goes up a lot.’
