  • News

Having this would be incredible! However, I can’t fathom heating it. In 1888, the Campbell Castle was constructed. It is situated in Wichita, Kansas, on 1.76 acres. For Burton “Barbecue” Harvey Campbell, it was constructed. He was an investor and a cattle baron.

The features include a five-story turret, hardwood floors, crown molding, picture rails, transom windows, exquisite mantels, vaulted ceilings, and European stained glass. A three-bedroom separate carriage house is present. Appliances for commercial kitchens exist. The Little Arkansas River is seen from the property. 14,622 square feet, 19 baths, and 17 bedrooms. $3,500,000 The new cost is $2,950,000.

From the Zillow listing:

The National, State, and Local Registers of Historic Places all list this property. This amazing house, which exudes romantic and historical intrigue, blends opulent modern amenities with centuries-old architecture to create an incredibly valuable asset. Several structural antiques, such as fireplaces, hand-carved fretwork, German stained glass, the 300-year-old Grand Staircase, and the arched dining room window, were brought into the Castle from Europe by Colonel Campbell.

Three of the fourteen guest rooms, an office, and the owners’ apartment (1,300 square feet) on the second story (once the hayloft) with cedar beam vaulted ceilings and genuine native limestone walls are all located in the carriage house. There are 17 bedrooms overall in both buildings, each with its own bathroom. Twelve of the fourteen bedrooms have fireplaces, and six of the bedrooms have two-person whirlpool tubs. A commercial dishwasher, two convection ovens, and a 12-burner Wolf stove with stainless steel surfaces can be found in the castle kitchen. There are numerous places to sit for eating and unwinding in the formal dining room, solarium, and coffee bar.

About half of the castle’s basement floor is dedicated to a carpeted 1000 square foot meeting space area that features a wet bar, refrigerator, and an adjoining half bathroom. The room has an old world feel to it because of the original antique limestone walls. The south Porte Cochere porch is a delightful spot to unwind and have conversations. The second story of the Castle has three balconies. Beautiful views of the Little Arkansas River and the surrounding Wichita skyline may be seen from the open rooftop area located on the sixth level of the main turret.
