Richthofen Castle, Legendary Former Home Of The 'Red Baron's' Uncle, For Sale In Denver (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

A castle for sale in Denver? Yes, one of Mile High City's most colorful historic homes is back on the market: The Richthofen Castle.

This formidable stone fortress was built by Walter von Richthofen, uncle of famed World War I pilot known as the "Red Baron," in 1887 and was modeled after the Richthofen Castle--Walter's ancestral home in Germany--by architects Jules Jacques Benedict and Maurice Bixco.

Located in the East Denver neighborhood of Montclair, the 35-room national landmark was the site of one of Colorado's most infamous murders in 1911, that of Charles Patterson by his wife, Gertrude who newspapers of the time called "The Most Beautiful Woman in America" and has since been rumored to be haunted.

The 14,000-square-foot home is brimming with all the amenities one might expect from a castle: hand-carved woodwork, hand-tooled leather wallpaper, a library, drawing room, music alcove, a "Red Baron" bar and much more, according to Realtor.com.

And the Richthofen Castle can be all yours for $3.7 million. Check out the full Realtor.com listing for more information on the property.
