Mock-medieval castle is a £19m slice of England in America’s Deep South |



A mock-medieval castle in America’s Deep South comes complete with a horse farm, ballroom and 94 hectares of land.

Living in a castle rarely comes cheap – and this huge, mock-medieval mansion is no exception.

The property – a 16-room luxury hotel – is on the market for £19million, complete with an adjoining horse farm and 94 hectares (232 acres) of land.

The palatial home, which is near the Kentucky city of Versailles, is also perfect for entertaining.

It has its own grand ballroom, swimming pool and tennis courts, while those who want to relive a bygone era can hit the rooftop shuffleboard court, indulging in a game which was once popular with King Henry VIII.

Meanwhile, in the guest rooms, wood- burning fireplaces allow residents to snuggle up in front of roaring fires as they indulge their fantasies of living in a historic castle.

The huge property was modelled on a medieval castle when work was started in 1969. But it has had a chequered history since, having never been fully completed before a fire destroyed part of the building in 2004.

The castle was then transformed into a luxury hotel, the Castle Post, which opened in 2008.

Set in the countryside in the southern American state famous for its whiskey and horse racing, two other buildings are included in the asking price.
