This beautiful castle in Dordogne, France features a 12th century tower that, according to legend, housed the treasures of King Richard the Lionheart in its subterranean vault.
The interior has a rustic charm with stone floors and wood beams, and a fairytale exterior nestled upon a 125-acre wooded property highlighted by an orchard and private lake.

Not everyone can buy an authentic castle.
And if you’re seeking something with an ancient exterior but a modern and comfortable interior, then you’d probably be better off building it yourself anyway. And you’re in luck, because Dan Tyree has designed a stately tower castle, named Chinook, that has a modern interior with great livability:
Inside this regal castle, you’ll find 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and, on the basement level, parking for 3 cars.
There is a central lightwell that extends down the center of the castle, and a greenhouse on the first level, between the luxurious kitchen and spacious living room.
For convenience, there is an elevator that connects all 3 levels, and a large laundry room on the top floor near the bedrooms.
In one wing of the top floor, 3 secondary bedrooms share a full bath. Throughout the other wing, stretches the lavish master suite.
The tower has 4,462 heated square feet, but provides an additional 2,977 square feet from the porches, garages, greenhouse, and storage. Plus, there’s a roof deck.
Take a virtual tour around the castle:
