Buy A Game Of Thrones Castle For Less Than The Cost Of A Sydney House

  • Parents Only

Well this is a sobering fact - a Scottish castle is literally selling for less than the cost of your average Sydney home. 

You might recognise the stoney estate as Riverrun, the backdrop of Game of Thrones' infamous red wedding.

The castle is now on the market starting at £500,000 (about $800,000). For comparison, in March 2018, the median price of a house in Sydney was $1,150,357. 

Okay you won't actually get the whole caste, so don't throw the towel in on your three bedroom firbo just yet - it has been split into six apartments with an average size of 3,500 square feet. In total, the portion of the castle for sale includes 15 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and 10 receptions rooms replete with original detailing, so you'll get no heating or air-con in those extreme Scottish weathers.

Before its 15 minutes of fame, the castle was home to the Earls of Gosford and served as a prisoner of war camp during World War II.

Perhaps you could round up your friends and family and chip in together to make this purchase. We can't say for sure whether living here means things will take a violent and traumatic turn.
