Just outside of New York City, at 170 Shonnard Terrace in Yonkers, you could be living like a literal king. This property is home to a stone castle with over 20 rooms replicated to reflect 16th through 18th century European style. The castle, known as Greystone Court, began as a country house in the 1880s and expanded over the years until it became its luxurious, grand current iteration. The current owner, Kohle Yohannan, purchased it in 2000 after the property had become rundown and restored the castle to its original splendor. It is now on the market for $3.95 million.

Walk inside and there’s an incredible 13,500 square feet to explore. In the most recent renovation, the owner uncovered such architectural treasures as 18th-century, hand-carved French Rococo panels in the dining room that had been painted over. In fact, each room is loaded with European castle-inspired details like hand carved wooden paneling and coffered ceilings. The master bedroom is perhaps the most impressive room of all, and it opens out onto a marble terrace. There are six bedrooms in all.

The modernized kitchen is adjacent to a “breakfast room,” which gives into the formal dining room, decorated with the hand-carved French Rococo panels and a chandelier.

With more than 20 rooms, imagine all the possibilities. There castle currently holds a conservatory, a “morning room,” billiard room, and a lushly upholstered library known as the “Turkish Room.” Oh, and there’s also a wine cellar, workshop space, staff quarters and a chapel.

Throughout, the home comes with incredible views of the Hudson River.

In a castle as lavish as this, even the bathroom provides some architectural wonders–the stained glass throughout the home was done by both Louis Comfort Tiffany and John La Farge. It’s safe to say that this is some of the grandest living you could pull off in New York. Be sure to go through the gallery to see more interior shots.
