Skip the White House, We Have Real Castles in DC - Check Us Out!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

Of course we have the White House and all the embassies but Cinderella doesn't live in those places.  In DC, we actually have a few castles to go along with the home of the President and all those ambassadors.  You won't find Queen Elizabeth living in any of these castles, but it is fun to imagine what life would be like if you lived in a castle in Washington! 

1.  The Gibbons Hall Castle at Catholic University

2. Rossdhu Gate

3. Blue Castle

6. Smithsonian Castle

What a clever idea for a blog! Every one of the castles looks amazing. My favorites are the Smithsonian and the Dupont Circle castle. Thanks for sharing!

Great showcase of the castles in Washington DC and surrounding areas.  I was able to travel there in December and saw some of these!

So many of us take our castles for granted, Lise. What a great tribute to those castles in Washington, D.C. area.

You know, the Heurich Castle reminds me of the old courthouse building on 4th and 4th in Minneapolis.

Hi Lise... a fine array of castles for anyone with a princess pretentions! I could live in one of those. When I was young I wanted to be First Lady... so I'd have been quite happy in the White House.

Hi Lise- Love the theme for this post!!! And when we lived in Leesburg, VA, we spent many weekends at the Smithsonian Castle while we waited for the museums to open.
