It's not often you get the chance to live in an actual castle that looks straight out of history. But when you do, you know it's worth breaking the piggy bank for. This Calgary castle is so big and fancy, it's got more bathrooms than I have dollars.
If you ever wanted to live like a monarch, then this French chateau on the Rocky Mountain foothills might just be for you. Sure the outside view is breathtaking, but that's nothing compared to the inside.
With four floors, over 17,000 square feet of space, and 10 beds for you and your royal court, this fancy fortress is so high-brow it's got a name: Terre Blanche.
In case you want to go back to the 1700s, the estate comes chock-full of antiques — including 30 antique chandeliers and an enormous water fountain rescued from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, reads its website.
Privacy is no question here — the nearly three acres of land are only accessible from a private road and is entirely fenced off.
That doesn't mean it's far from the convenience of the city; the estate is just 30 minutes from downtown Calgary and 45 minutes from Banff for trips of business or pleasure. Just a quick car trip with one of your rides in the six-car garage.
Just because you're fancy doesn't mean you can't have fun. The house comes furnished with a half basketball and volleyball court, a theatre, and an extensive wine cellar to make basketball and movies more interesting.
And of course, what would an over-the-top castle be without a full library that would make Stephen King drool.
Are you tired of taking the stairs to the four floors of your house? Well no worries, because Terre Blanche also comes with an elevator to help you out.
Featuring almost too much extravagance and interesting furnishings from all the eras, this fancy mansion is fit for a king or emperor.
