100-Year-Old Castle An Hour Outside Manhattan Is On the Market

A historic 9-bedroom castle about an hour outside of Manhattan is on the market for $4.5 million. Known as the Marion Castle, it's situated on 1.67 acres in Stamford, Connecticut's Shippan Point neighborhood. Early Hollywood film producer and self-made millionaire Frank Marion commissioned architects Hunt & Hunt to build the home in the French Chateau style between 1914 and 1916, and it's now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The property boasts sweeping views of Long Island Sound, comes with neighborhood beach access, and has a backyard pool. The house spans 8,140 feet and features a ballroom, a living area with high ceilings, and chandelier-lined white marble hallway. The house has 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, along with 2 powder rooms. Although historic, the house features a state-of-the-art gym and modern kitchen appliances. So, if you’ve got a few million dollars you don’t know what to do with, this may be the place for you.
