Palace of versailles

Calgary Castle is a Canadian Palace of Versailles built in Alberta (PHOTOS)

It’s not often you get the chance to live in a real castle that seems straight out of history. But when you do, you know it’s worth breaking the bank. This Calgary Castle is so big and fancy that there are more bathrooms than I have money.

If you ever wanted to live like a monarch, then this french castle on the foothills of the Rocky Mountains just might be for you. Sure, the view outside is breathtaking, but that’s nothing compared to the inside.

With four stories, over 17,000 square feet of space, and 10 beds for you and your royal court, this chic fortress is so sophisticated it has a name: White Earth.

In case you want to go back to the 1700s, the estate is full of antiques – including 30 old chandeliers and a huge water fountain saved from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, it reads. his website.

Privacy is no question here – the nearly three acres of land are only accessible by a private road and are fully fenced.

That doesn’t mean it’s far from the convenience of town; the estate is only 30 minutes from downtown Calgary and 45 minutes from Banff for business or leisure travel. Just a little road trip with one of your drives in the six-car garage.

Just because you’re fancy doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. The house is furnished with a half basketball and volleyball court, a theater and an extensive wine cellar to make basketball and movies more interesting.

And of course, what would an over-the-top castle be without a full library that would make Stephen King drool.
