There was a fascinating article in BuzzFeed that had the interesting (to me) title: 6 Castles That Cost Less Than An Apartment In NYC
Here is the first pair:
This 13,993-square-foot, 6-bedroom castle sits on 24 acres of land overlooking the countryside of Midi Pyrenees. Features include a large entrance hall opening to the courtyard, salon with a fireplace, grand staircase, elevator, large dining room with fireplace, two kitchens, a bedroom wing with a hall onto the courtyard, study rooms in the towers, two garages, and access to the chapel and east wing.
Here’s a 1-bed, 1.5-bath, 1,200-square-foot apartment on East 30th Street. It’s conveniently located near nothing interesting.
