Looking to Go Bigger? Buy a Castle.
Lower the draw bridge and sound the trumpets - LawCrossing Weekend is going medieval. While you may not be the ruler of a kingdom or wear a crown to the dinner table, there is no reason you shouldn't live like royalty. Instead of making a down payment on that quaint 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch house in the suburbs, step back to the days of Lancelot and purchase your very own castle. During the Middle Ages, castles were constructed for defensive purposes, to protect against enemies and intruders. They symbolized strength and power. Today, however, the need to fend off barbarian invasions isn't quite what it was 800 years ago. Now, many of these historical bastions have become prime real estate, and can be yours, if the price is right.

Templar Castle in Perugia, Italy is just one of the beautiful fortresses currently up on the market. Built in 1216, Templar has been deemed a national monument by the Italian Cultural Ministry, mainly due to it's historical significance to the town of Perugia and its protective role during the crusades. The adobe castle showcases medieval style and design at its finest, even complete with its very own drawbridge . While many castles today have lost their medieval roots due to extensive renovation, Tempar stays true to its old world form.

As you walk through the 38-room residence, you may feel like you are stepping back to the days of Excalibur, with armor and coats of arms lining the hallways. A gothic ambiance is carried throughout the castle with old fired-tiles and wooden flooring and a combination of sandstone and brick wall structures. Such a backdrop would be ideal for anyone with a large collection of Italian tapestries and no place to hang them. Amongst the myriad of rooms within the confines of the compound, a large library, a ladies sitting room, a large dining hall and a private chapel help create the sense of wealth that only the noblest of nobles were privy to back in the day of lords and serfs.



Purchasing your own castle may make you feel like royalty, but what will your friends think? Will they think of you differently now that you are living like a king? Just to be sure there is no doubt as to who is the ruler of your kingdom, invite your friends over for a little ceremony in your very own throne room. There is always the chance that a self-coronation may brew some jealousy amongst your friends and family members. If this is the case and you fear an imminent threat from those who can't handle your sudden and well-deserved regal status, there is a secret passageway that can provide you with a quick exit to avoid any hostilities.

The large compound not only boasts a wonderfully 13th century interior, it also has a tremendous view of the quiet Italian countryside. Templar is surrounded by over 6000 square meters of breathtaking flora, centuries old trees, native shrubbery and beautiful, ornate water fountains. This medieval marvel is perfect for any wealthy history buff or anyone who has watched Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves more than twice in their lifetime.
