If you don’t want to run for president, but still want to wield power, you may be interested in taking (the significantly cheaper option) of buying this castle in Italy for $8.3 million. In addition to coming with an 18,000-square-foot castle, the property comes with 17 farmhouses, a housing development with seven villas, a clock tower, gatehouse, a warehouse, a pool and a restaurant. That’s practically a country!
The listing states that the property was gifted to the Corsini family in 962 and has remained in their hands ever since (that’s a good 1,054 years for those who can’t do math). Sadly, that grand lineage does not come with the house.
Jeffrey Feuer and Angelica Mera Schaefer of Douglas Elliman have the listing.
