For a cool $650,000, a very lucky Game of Thrones fan can own a portion of Northern Ireland’s Gosford Castle. It’s the very place used as Riverrunthe seat of House Tully and the childhood home of Catelyn Stark.

The stunning castle, situated on an idyllic plot of land an hour from Belfast, dates back to the mid-1800s and was built by the 2nd Earl of Gosford, Archibald Acheson. The home was passed down to Earls of Gosford until 1921. After that, it was used by the military during WWII and The Troubles (an ethno-nationalist conflict in Northern Ireland during the late 20th century).

In1983, Gosford Castle became a hotel, and since 1986, it’s grounds have been designated as Northern Ireland’s first conservation forest.

Keeping a castle (or palace) in good order can cost a fortune, so residents often choose to hand them over to the National Trust.

In 2006, the castle, designed by London architect Thomas Hopper, underwent an extensive renovation, with Gosford Castle Development investing more than $5 million to return the space to its original Norman Revival glory. Now the castle has been split up into 23 luxury residences, of which six are up for sale for a combined price of $650,000.

The biggest home in each state will stun you.

Each condo is about 3,500 square feet and has at least three bedrooms, and you, your dragons and dire wolf can live there, happily ever after!
