Realtor Seeks Royalty: Check Out This Amazing Castle For Sale In Riverdale
4720 Grovesner Avenue in Riverdale is that castle, for sale by Stribling and Associates.
The mean streets of New York belong to no one. In the open air of the city all claims are settled in the moment. Weather the claim is to one side of the sidewalk or a parking space, no one person has dominion. But there is one place, perhaps the only place in New York City that you can be the king of your own castle. Not as a metaphor. For real.
4720 Grovesner Avenue in Riverdale is that castle, for sale by Stribling and Associates. You are the king. And, for a princely $3.5 million, regardless or your lineage, gender or nationality, you can rule all you survey from your very own royal turret. Perched on the second highest point in NYC, you can survey quite a kingdom. And while you sit on your 40’ X 30’ flagstone terrace listening to one of the six Bose sound systems, you can ponder the most benevolent way to govern your subjects. With five bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths (each bath with its own throne), your royal subjects can have ample space to think of how to best serve you and your kingdom. Like breakfast in your king-sized bed, for example.
Luckily, its newly renovated kitchen (replete with two dishwashers), has traded the bubbling cauldron in the walk-in fireplace for stainless steel and marble countertops. But lest you feel the modern touches take away from the noble experience, the castle still has some medieval charm intact. With its dark wood doors, exposed beams and stone exterior, one would expect flaming arrows or Peter Dinklage to come flying in at any moment (Disclaimer-neither of which come with the price of purchase).
While entirely suitable for defense against the apocalypse or the surrounding neighborhoods, your castle will also work pretty well for some French Provincial style chillin if you so desire. It is truly a beautiful home on an amazing piece of property. Situated conveniently near public transportation (for your surfs I would imagine) and only a 15-minute ride by chauffeured car/chariot to the city, your royal digs will keep you close to the common folk as well.
And, good news. If you intend for your royal status top be short lived, this castle is also for rent for a mere $12,000 a month. Its good to be king.
For the immanent buyer, we bid them a fond and royal adieu as we amble and bow back to our humble homes amongst the great unwashed.
