Jim I bought this Castle in 1995. I bought it from an individual who had spent 5 years building 2 floors. It had no power, no water, and no interior walls or rooms. It has taken me a long time but it is a showplace today, and it is a residence I dearly love. It is located in the Skagit Valley, Washington State. This property is one of a kind, it has a bridge to the front door over a 150' deep ravine, and it sits on 20 forested acres. Below the Castle is a 25 foot waterfall.
