Versailles Road Castle Getting a Makeover

Versailles Road Castle

This property is hardly your typical piece of residential real estate. What an amazing story! First, the idea that a medieval stone castle was being built off a rural Kentucky stretch of highway is literally unique. Rex Martin started building the castle in 1969 but after divorcing from his wife never completed the building. So it’s been vacant ever since. We’re talking 30+ years.

Then the property suffered a fire in 2004. Authorities never learned if the fire was intentional or not.

Now we learn that the Versailles Road Castle is being rebuilt! One rumor is that upon completion, the property will be opened up to public visitors, for a fee, of course.
