LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Have you ever wanted to live in a castle? Well, here's your chance.
The 1-acre property is up for sale in Charlestown on Dave Carr Road just off the Ohio River Scenic Bypass.
The listing says it has two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms and is five stories tall.
And the castle definitely has some quirks. When you first walk across the bridge, you have the option to go downstairs or head to the main living quarters. There's a formal dining room built for a king. Two staircases both lead to the master bedroom and bathroom with a walk-in closet.
There are two hidden entrances that lead to the bar area and the 10-car garage. There's also a concrete courtyard surrounded by the castle walls and a cat walk.
But pictures show that the castle needs some cleaning and some work.
"You really have to have that passion to do this because there is so much that needs to be done and so many things you can do this with, and do that," said current owner Peggy Griffin.
Griffin's late husband built the castle in 1997.
Previously, the structure was an old water shed used during the Civil War era. Griffin said her husband knew how he could transform it.
"He bought it and he made it into his dream: a dream castle," she said. "Who would want a building this big, except for my husband."
That question: 'Who would want a building this big?' is being asked again. Schuler Bauer Real Estate Agent Denise Taylor says a lot of people want it.
"The internet has gone crazy over this listing," she said.
Taylor said she's gotten dozens of interest emails, has showed the castle multiple times and mentioned that posts of the listing have gotten thousands of shares.
Saturday morning, all of the relics that were stored inside the castle will be auctioned off on the property. That includes full-armored knight statues, cars, motorcycles, arcade games, wild game mounts, and much more.
It begins at 9 a.m.
"Something for everybody," Taylor said of the items up for grabs.
It's current owner says whether or not the castle is fit for a new king and queen, or just a legend that will only live on in pictures and stories, she says she holds the rest of the memories in her heart and in her mind.
The castle is currently on the market for $400,000.
