Want to Live Inside a Castle Right Here in Yakima?
It has been said about men that they just want to be the king of their castle but, really, what woman hasn't ever fantasized -- even as a little girl -- about being swept away by a Prince Charming and living happily ever after in a castle?
Well, that fantasy can become a reality for a couple right here in Yakima... at a place called Rosedell!
After searching for the cheapest and most expensive homes currently on the market in the valley on Zillow.com, I stumbled across this gem located right in the heart of the city at 1811 West Yakima Ave.
The home is being listed by Keller Williams Realty Agent Amy Maib and she describes it like this:
"Rosedell - one of Yakima's most recognizable and historic homes awaits you. This magnificent 17 room, 4 floor, Neo Classic mansion sits on 1.2 acres centrally located in the Barge Chestnut neighborhood of Yakima WA. Finished in 1909, Rosedell's quality craftsmanship is on display including hand quarried stone, gorgeous woodwork and hand stenciled trim alongside completely renovated rooms and modern updates including the entire electrical system, domestic plumbing, heating and cooling, and the roof/gutter system. A large Chef's kitchen w/ granite, home office, laundry room have been added & WIFI throughout. The wraparound porch and park like grounds make this estate a one of a kind. Fixtures/Furnishings included."
This nearly 8,000 square foot home, straight out of fairy tale, is selling for $1,200,000 and has 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms all sitting atop a 1.2 acre lot with 4 parking places. For an estimated monthly payment of just $5,681, it could be all yours! Heck, even if you can't afford to make all your dreams come true, it is, at least, fun to see how "the other half" lives sometimes!
Gotta have a wrought iron fence to guard the castle, right?!?!
Yeah, I could totally have morning coffee on this porch!
Imagine coming down these stairs on Christmas morning...
This is what I imagine Abraham Lincoln slept in something like.
For those times when your dinner guest is Queen Elizabeth.
Every living room should have a mysterious trunk as the centerpiece.
Colonel Mustard... with a lead pipe... in the parlor!
No more fighting over bathroom space when you have SIX of them!
Only the coolest castles have stainless steel appliances!
Gotta hire a personal chef at this point, I reckon.
I'll be in my office...
Another one of SIX bedrooms with bonus "Mystery Trunk".
I've stayed in hotels smaller than this spare bedroom.
Not gonna lie. I wouldn't let ANYONE wash-up or go pee in here.
I'm guessing here, but... Mother-In-Law quarters?
Best be investing in a riding lawnmower.
