It's been called "one of the coolest homes in town." The historic castle home on Genesee St. in Lapeer is for sale and you can take a virtual tour right here.

The chance to live like a king or queen just popped up on the market a few weeks ago, with the current owner asking $349,900 for this six-bedroom, 2.5-bath gem. The home was built in the late 1800s and to this day retains plenty of its original charm.

Lapeer's Legendary Castle Home

As you enter the home, you're greeted by a grand arched stone porch and two matching turrets, standing before the five-foot wide solid oak door that leads you to an amazing foyer. A grand spiral staircase catches your eye as soon as you enter the home.

According to the listing, the walls and ceiling are adorned with exotic hardwood that's believed to be old-world mahogany. In the great room, you'll find a grand fireplace and coffered ceilings. Maple floors and moldings accent the formal dining room.

The round rooms bring so much charm to this home don't they?

As you'd probably expect from a home that's roughly 130 years old, the kitchen is small but filled with charm. And the butler's pantry is a nice touch.

As you make your way up the winding staircase, you'll find four bedrooms upstairs and a second-floor laundry room. One of the bedrooms has its own bathroom and the others are connected by pocket doors, enabling them to be expanded into one large room.

It Needs a Little Work

As you browse the photos below, you'll notice that the landscaping needs some attention, and see the home's original windows which the real estate agent acknowledges need replacing.
