Retreat from reality at the end of each day by coming home to your own private castle.
The three-bedroom, four-bathroom home in Great River, on the market for $649,000, features its own 40-foot tower.

Originally built in 1890 as a carriage house for a larger estate, the 3,076-square-foot home still retains much of its antique charm, despite renovations to create a more energy-efficient interior. Most of the doors, windows and moldings are original, and there are lit stained glass murals on both floors.

The great room has a stone fireplace, and there’s a formal dining room and a grand staircase. A conservatory in the back of the house features radiant heat floors, and the second floor offers a billiards room with a Juliet balcony overlooking the grounds.

In the master bedroom, a private bathroom features an oversized tub. The home’s office features a spiral staircase leading to a meditation room, with an additional spiral staircase that winds up to the tower.

The listing agent is Nancy Stein of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
