"This Medieval castle on 6+ acres surrounded by a wrought iron fence and two gated towers is the perfect private palace," the listing reads. "The frame is built with 60 tons of steel and construction took over 6 years utilizing artisans from all over the world. The castle is 60 feet tall, or taller than a 4 story building."

The home was built in 1990 by the late James LeBlanc, an engineer who made a Christmas 1969 promise to his wife Vera to build her a castle.

"Not just a family home, it's a fortress in many ways," listing agent Mike Kuligowski said.

The listing said the home offers "kings and queens" a chance to "live an extraordinary life of adventure free from peasants."
