That ghost better be much more than benevolent to justify $3.4 million for under 2000 square feet on a single acre.  I'm talking butler, landscaper, and general handyman with enough of a physical manifestation for some late night BOOty calls, too.

The house isn't exactly "haunted"..it's a thin place. For it to be haunted I would say there would be ghosts..whatever is going on in that house has beings that might never have been born at all, but always on the realm they inhabit.

Castle?  Ha.  House with Turret is a better description.  Remember the old American saying:  A man's home is his house with a turret.

Ghosts are the least of your problems.

Well, at least they remembered to mention it.

Colonel Fazackerley Butterworth-Toast
Bought an old castle complete with a ghost,
But someone or other forgot to declare
To Colonel Fazack that the spectre was there.

On the very first evening, while waiting to dine,
The Colonel was taking a fine sherry wine,
When the ghost, with a furious flash and a flare,
Shot out of the chimney and shivered, 'Beware!'

Colonel Fazackerley put down his glass
And said, 'My dear fellow, that's really first class!
I just can't conceive how you do it at all.
I imagine you're going to a Fancy Dress Ball?'

At this, the dread ghost made a withering cry.
Said the Colonel (his monocle firm in his eye),
'Now just how you do it, I wish I could think.
Do sit down and tell me, and please have a drink.'

The ghost in his phosphorous cloak gave a roar
And floated about between ceiling and floor.
He walked through a wall and returned through a pane
And backed up the chimney and came down again.

Said the Colonel, 'With laughter I'm feeling quite weak!'
(As trickles of merriment ran down his cheek).
'My house-warming party I hope you won't spurn.
You MUST say you'll come and you'll give us a turn!'

At this, the poor spectre - quite out of his wits -
Proceeded to shake himself almost to bits.
He rattled his chains and he clattered his bones
And he filled the whole castle with mumbles and moans.

But Colonel Fazackerley, just as before,
Was simply delighted and called out, 'Encore!'
At which the ghost vanished, his efforts in vain,
And never was seen at the castle again.

'Oh dear, what a pity!' said Colonel Fazack.
'I don't know his name, so I can't call him back.'
And then with a smile that was hard to define,
Colonel Fazackerley went in to dine.

We had a ghost move in the refrigerator.  Just a dark energy that stared at the fridge.  Then weird noises started occurring.  One night I yelled "You are welcome here but if you keep this shiat up, I'll burn the place down and you can haunt a concrete slab for eternity."  They calmed down.

You don't buy a place like that for square footage. You're paying for the view and the freak factor. Imagine the number of "lost" baseballs you can accumulate!

I found the place to be really beautiful. The interior is simply, but beautifully done. Definitely not what I'd call Castle size, but nice as a retreat.

Seeing a pic of the building in context, that's not even *vaguely* a castle. Hell, it's not even a mansion, it's a small home with delusions of grandeur.

I would dearly love to re-do those interiors. Too much white + a lot of stone + ocean views = suicide. It definitely needs more wood and much less paint.

Its nice to find a place that has been kept up and modernized enough without looking like a Home Depot kitchen center.     It boggles the mind when people take a classic home, gut it and then make it wall to wall pressed sawdust and veneer.


True.

/a big part of architecture and interior design is context
//though I'd love to design a couple "diamonds in the rough" with regular looking houses on the outside, really amazing insides. Think when Arsenio refitted the apartment in Coming to America, but not that slummy.

2,000'^2? You're joking. I used to own a house in Chicago that looked like a four-square prarie, and it was 2165'^2. In Chicago. And sole for an order of magnitude, almost, less.
