The one-of-a-kind castle was constructed by Castle Magic using granite quarried in British Columbia that was hand-chiseled to fit on site, and massive timber beams that were harvested from the surrounding forest.

Despite being 8,000 square feet, the single family home features only two bedrooms and three bathrooms. The tub-side crossbow is not included in the sale.

The property can be accessed by car or via a private, two-tiered dock. A water approach takes you through a stone tunnel and into an interior plunge pool.
