Know of any royal families who are looking to relocate to Fayetteville?
The Dromberg, a 12,000-square-foot castle that was previously listed for $8.7 million, will hit the auction block this week with no reserve.
Located at 2991 S. City Lake Road, the 13th century Scottish-inspired fortress includes 40 wooded acres just east of the Fayetteville Country Club.
A spokesperson for Concierge Auctions told us the auction begins at 4 p.m. Thursday, July 11, and ends Monday, July 15 at the same time. A $100,000 bidder deposit is required.
The castle was built in 2008 by Bruce and Joan Johnson, who own White River Hardwoods in Fayetteville. The couple has said as history buffs, they were inspired to recreate the feel and ambience of a luxury home from a bygone era. The Johnsons worked with a local architect for the bulk of the project, and hired a New York City-based designer to complete the interior, which features native solid Oak, Cherry, and Walnut hardwoods in the hand-carved cabinetry, millwork, and beams.
The 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath home has 8,825 heated square feet, and is made up of 4,000 tons of native stone. It includes a 4th-floor observation deck, a chapel, a pool, a walled garden, a half-acre stocked pond, a golf green with three tee boxes, and enough garage space for 10 cars.
