Check Out George McFly’s Beautiful Home in the Czech Republic

Eccentric is a word often associated with actor Crispin Glover. From his quirky on-screen role as George McFly in Back To the Future to his unorthodox appearances on Late Night With David Letterman, nothing the actor does is conventional, and that apparently includes decorating his home. Glover lives in a 17-bedroom home on 20 acres in Konarovice, Czech Republic, just 45 minutes outside of Prague. There are reports of dozens of peacocks strutting around the well-kept grounds, mysterious locked rooms that no one is allowed to venture into, and the tale of the former owner, who disappeared one day. Konarovice Chateau is a 17th-century Renaissance-style castle that the 56-year-old bachelor says was a mere real estate investment. When Glover first purchased the manor — sprawling and nearly dilapidated — a master apartment was the only livable space. He eventually set about renovating the house and acquired the surrounding structures, including horse stables, and converted them into filming stages for his production company. Glover is only the second owner since the Communist Era, and the one before him didn't stay long. "She only owned it for a few years and then she disappeared. There's still a missing person's case open for her,” explained Glover. Like everything else in Glover’s life, his home is strangely strange.
