If you tilt your head to the left and squint your eyes a tad, you can still see the hint of the Victorian that lies forever entombed in this hulking shell of stone. Dubbed "Rocky Hill Castle," this Chadds Ford estate, asking $725,000, boasts 12 bedrooms, three and a half-baths, and five acres of refreshingly undisturbed Pennsylvania land. Per the listing, the original Victorian "summer home" was built by a local business owner, and "was rumored to include about 600 acres." In 1912, for apparently no reason whatsoever, "major changes took place and the original Victorian style home with wrap around deck was converted to a stone 'castle'!" The property, being sold as-is, includes a barn with five stalls and some of the original "horse and carriage lane" that runs along the front of the property.
