Nestled inside twenty acres of pristine Pacific Northwest forest, this 2,972-square-foot "castle" seems the perfect place to rule your Sedro Woolley kingdom in seclusion. Turns out, it didn't take a king's ransom to get it. First listed in March 2013 for almost $1.4 million, the property finally sold last week for $782K. Fourth time's the charm apparently, as it had been pending three other times previously. Boasting all of the basic castle attributes—stone facade, battlements, and pseudo-turrets—the three-bedroom keep is accessible by private bridge. There's no moat but there is a waterfall, salmon-stocked creek and natural swimming pool nearby. The property also has a rare state permit for private hydroelectric power, which could allow you to live "off the grid," according to the listing.
All hail the new owners. May they rule us firmly, but justly.
