If, as the old saying goes, a man’s home is his castle, then a property for sale in BC’s southern interior is quite appropriate.

If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a castle, a home that looks like one – it even has a bridge over a small pond / moat – could be yours for $ 3.45 million.

Located in northern Okanagan, near the small community of Cherryville, this 3,200-square-foot home is surrounded by trees and sits on 8.8 acres of woodland. It is also close to the Shuswap River and has 1300 feet of total shoreline.

“These original owners were passionate about architecture and carefully examined 15th-century castles and fell in love with their soaring ceilings, arched doorways and large, multi-room, and modernized the building to commercial character specifications,” reads Sotheby’s International Realty.

The construction says the home has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, two half baths, an open kitchen and a triple garage.

It also has a 3,000 square foot roof terrace (with a mute server) that can accommodate lots of people, an electric gate and a caretaker’s cabin located on the property.

Asked about the property, real estate agent Cheryl Soleway called it a unique home, “one of a kind.”

“I did not know what to expect,” Soleway told Global News when asked to list the house, but that “it exceeded my expectations on many levels.”

Soleway said that there is a nice little drive before you reach the home and that ‘the quality of (the home) is quite unique. It was a real treat to see something that was different and yet so advanced. ”

As for the bridge and the moat, Soleway laughed and said “there are no crocodiles, no alligators. You are able to cross the moat in comfort. ”

She added: “the entrance and the bridge, it is so authentic.”

And for the record, the bridge is not a true drawbridge that can be lowered and raised.
