This is the property that got me excited about CreativCastle in the first place. A huge castle in need of a community and some love to restore it. But I couldn’t narrow a price and it seems to be around 11million. However I just saw some news that puts it at 4.5.
True, it’s not ancient – it’s only about 150 years old (although the land has much more history – St. Francis is said to have lived here for awhile).
And unfortunately I haven’t seen inside yet, it could be a mess. But I imagine it’s pretty nice. And the place is enormous, so we could have all sorts of things going on.
$5million is only 1000 people paying $5000.
With a place this big we could probably have 50 to 100 people a month, with plenty of room for volunteers, special pimped out suites for celebrity guests, and more.
I basically want to put a bunch of tables and a library in this gigantic cathedral – it would make an insane coworking space.
However…. it would probably get too hot, or too cold, and too dirty – and would be a royal pain to maintain. I’d probably be required to keep it simple since it’s a historical site. I’m not sure how much they would let me renovate/fix/improve. I’m OK with simple, minimal and comfortable antique furniture, but of course we need a good kitchen, fast internet and lots of electricity.
Oh…. and a boat.
Still, the property needs to be something epic like this to catch on. What do you think? Less practical? More inspirational and awesome?
