It sits on 53 acres in Woodford County.

The castle is 19,355 square feet with 17 rooms spread across two stories.

It was built in 1980.

A group of investors, including two University of Kentucky Hospital doctors, bought the castle from a Miami lawyer in 2017.

One of the tour guides on the ground told WKYT in July 2019 that the story behind the multi-million dollar facility begins in 1969 when, then owner, Rex Martin built the castle as a home for his wife.

A divorce later, Martin sat on the unused property for nearly 30 years before selling it to Tom Post for $1.8 million.

The castle caught fire in 2004, destroyed the inside of the structure.

After the fire, the castle was turned into a bed and breakfast.
