If you are an avid fan of Game of Thrones, you will be thrilled to know that one of the castles that appear in the hit show has actually hit the market. It is important to mention that only one portion of the castle is for sale and offers start at £500,000. The Gosford Castle is located on Mullaghbrack Road in Markethill, Northern Ireland and was one of the main locations during the third season of the Emmy-award winning TV series. Today, the Most Expensive Homes will explore a bit of its history and astonishing features, so stay tuned.
In an effort to contextualise its use on the series, the castle was the home to the House Tully, the ancestral home of one of the main characters, Catelyn Stark, the wife of Ned Stark. The castle was later the property of Walter Frey, after the infamous “Red Wedding” took place.
The castle was built in the mid-1800s by Archibald Acheson, the 2nd Earl of Gosford. The Castle was designed by London architect Thomas Hopper and was the home to many Earls of Gosford until 1921. Imbued with years of history, in 1983, Gosford was transformed into a rustic hotel.
The majestic property features 15-plus bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. Since 2006, it has been in a renovation project with the aim of having 23 luxury residences in its proximities.
Seeing that “Winter is coming”, this comes as the perfect opportunity to make a move if you are an enthusiast of rustic settings and would like to be in a space where one of the most beloved series of all time was actually filmed. For more information about the space go to maisonni.com.
