'Game of Thrones' castle for sale is cheaper than a house in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - If you're a "Game of Thrones" fan in the Bay Area, we've got some good news for you! 

A castle that was featured in the show is up for sale, and it's actually pretty reasonably priced -- much more affordable than a typical home in the Bay Area, believe it or not. 

Riverrun, which is part of the House Tully stronghold, is up for sale in Northern Ireland. 

Gosford Castle, which was featured in GoT Season 3, was built in the mid-1800s and boasts more than 15 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. 

Masion Real Estate divides the castle into six luxury apartments, each spanning 3,500 square feet. 

It also has quite a bit of history to it. According to Maison Real Estate, the castle was first occupied by the Earls of Gosford until 1921. It was then commandeered during the Second World War and used to house troops. 

Following the war, the castle was sold to the Ministry of Agriculture then fell back into military ownership before converting to a hotel in 1983. 

Starting price for the castle is £500,000, which is equivalent to around $656,452.

Seriously.

 

 

If you feel like you just can't leave the Bay, you can take a look at this San Mateo land for sale for over $2 million, a Palo Alto mega-mansion for $96.8 million, or if you want to be more creative, a 1-acre dirt lot for sale for $15 million.
