Have you ever dreamed of owning your own castle? Well now you can…if you have a spare $45 million! Chrismark Castle was built by Chris Mark, the son of a wealthy Chicago steel tycoon, for $4.1 million dollars. It took seven years to build the 9 bedroom, 10 bathroom, 18,777 square foot home which is set in 75 acres of land and has it’s own moat.
