Not infrequently 50% of the inhabitable castle areas are not fit for living quarters but are simply large open areas for everyone to enjoy (wide stair cases, entry halls, hallways), representative spaces (knight’s hall, ball room, library, chapel etc.) or functional areas of past periods (castle kitchen, vaulted cellars, stables etc.).
External areas (in some cases over 100,000 m2/24 acres) with gardens, walking paths, parks, ponds, forests, meadows and agricultural areas are additional features of some castles.
Quite opposite to the concepts of modern living with small common areas due to high inner city property costs these wide and open spaces are simply included in the castle experience.
Your castle condo – no matter how large or small – always has large spaces which extend far beyond your condo. And all that for the price of a narrow inner City condo.
