What a gorgeous property in a beautiful area. 94 from STL to Jeff City is one of the nicest drives in the USA. Maybe Paul Stastny will buy it.

Tear Stained Eye by Son Volt is about Ste. Genevieve and is a lovely song (sorry no link, on mobile).

And when you wake up...you're still in Missouri.

To be fair, that's the only reason you can get a place like that for $850,000 (or $1.5 million if you want all 372 acres).  What does that type of money buy you in San Diego, San Francisco, or NYC?

I'll be dead in the cold cold ground afore I recognize Missouri.

You'd get a one bedroom apartment with a great view of a brick wall for that kind of money in NYC.

Great now I gotta go listen to it to get it out of my head. Truly one of the best and most underrated albums of the 1990s.

If I had the money, I'd buy it.

FTA:

Foerster came to the United States from Cologne, Germany, 60 years ago. He wasn't much of a scholar, he said, but he started a company that made after-market car parts out of his Sunset Hills home, and he said he got lucky.

Refreshing to see someone with probably more money than most not trying to tell everyone how hard he worked to earn his fortune.   Plenty of poorer people work their asses off too.

St Genevieve is on the other side of the state. It's down stream from St Louis.

It buys you not being in Missouri.

Also, nice home, but not really a castle.

The Arcadia Valley is lovely also. Or along the National Scenic Waterway. Missouri is a lovely state and doesn't deserve the crap it catches on Fark

There's this horse trainer I want to bang, but she had to return to St. Louis for reasons. If I won Power Ball or something similar I could arrange things. Oh, and why her? She trains cutting horses. That makes her like a high performance gymnast with thighs that could break you.

The picture that jumped into my head was a fancy backyard BBQ where George Takei, Ellen DeGeneres, and Neil Patrick Harris tell jokes at your expense.

That actually sounds kinda fun. I like all three of these people. Just have to make sure the roasting pieces don't touch, at least according to AppleOptionEsc

Here's the actual listing with some better pics:

23957 Brushy Creek Road, St Mary, MO 63673

 . . . not too shabby.  I suppose if I had the money, I would take it.  Yes, it's not San Diego, San Fransisco, or NYC - but it is just about equidistant from each of those locations.  So put in an airstrip, and my private jet would conveniently take me to my bachelor pads in those places on the weekends.

You'd use Farmington Regional, if the author is right about being in the same valley as other vineyards. Looks like two turns from Brushy Creek to road F (the most confusing part of my time in Missouri was the letters).

For some reason, that place looks very lonely to me.

Some people would consider that a plus.

Looks like something you would see in the more rural areas of northern NJ.

Its what we (in the UK) would call a stately home. For a building to be called a castle I expect to see some battlements or other defense capabilites.

Would love to live there. Great setting too.

There's SO much wrong about Missouri that living in a cool house could never fix. Mostly the politics and the stupid people.  Which tend to overlap.

In the US any building of sufficient size with a tower (that isn't a church) is considered a "castle".

And, no, you would not love to live in Missouri.  It's a state who's nickname (Misery) is well earned.

Missouri is a fine state to live in. It's no worse then anywhere else in America.

I've never been, but I know myself well enough to know I can't handle living in the heat/humidity combination that encompasses most of the U.S.  I would either die, or wish I was dead.

Well with a castle you could begin to dominate local politics and demand prima nocta, thus slowly changing the demographics for the serfs in your demesne.
