Want to live like a queen or king? A breathtaking castle built in 1860 is up for sale and it has plenty of old world charm.

Melrose Castle is a stunning 9,000 square-foot home located in scenic Warrenton, Va. that includes six bedrooms and six bathrooms. Built by brothers Dr. James H. Murray and Edward Murray, the castle was named after an abbey in Scotland where their ancestors lived. Two years later, the home went up for sale and became an encampment for Confederate soldiers during the Civil War.

Since then, the property has changed hands many times and gone through a series of renovations. Although the home still needs a bit of work, it’s still an incredible and historic piece of architecture.
