The exquisite Gärsnäs Castle in southern Sweden is for sale!
The castle dates all the way back to 1630 when it was built by a private citizen. Today, it is still privately owned.

It has been pristinely maintained through the centuries and is now on the market for the equivalent of $2,256,390 USD.
That’s really not a bad price for an historic castle in mint condition.
Check out the amazing interior…
Gärsnäs Castle is one of the few privately owned castles in Sweden.
Reportedly, a family lives here with lots of pets.
According to the listing, an earlier castle on the property was mentioned in 14th-century literature. The original castle was a fortress surrounded by a moat, owned by the Drefelt family.
The present castle was built by Falk Lykke, who acquired the land from the Drefelt family in 1630. In 1658, it was acquired by Heinrich Rantzau. It was bought by the Swedish Baron Jöran Adlersteen in 1702 and inherited jointly by his three daughters in 1713.
And so it has been passed down through the centuries.
According to local lore, the castle is perpetually haunted by Falk Lykke, the original builder.
Many of the antique items and furnishings have been in the castle for centuries and will be conveyed to the new owners as well.
Can you imagine living in such an historic national treasure?
The listing claims the castle has been described in books and has appeared in several films, including a Walt Disney film. But it does not specify which Disney movie.
The kitchen is restaurant quality yet classically styled.

The castle houses countless bedrooms, dens, lounges, staircases, and bathrooms.
The bedrooms pictured are light-filled and elegant…
Fit for a queen – like House Crazy Sarah. 🙂
The castle even has a subterranean wine cellar:

Classical Greek sculpture dots the grounds…

The listing agent proclaims: “not even a noble title is required to enjoy this insanely beautiful living environment!”
No titles required, but a very wealthy buyer is undoubtedly preferred!
