A Castle May Not Be a Home
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. Now on the market, an American castle that was really a home. The Searles Castle is located at the end of Main Street in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, and it has a requisite dungeon and seven turrets; it was built at the turn of the 20th century by the widow of a railroad magnate. But one woman's castle will likely not be turned back into a home. The asking price is $15 million, so realtors expect it will likely be a hotel or spa.
