  1. We don’t have many castles in NZ. Mainly built for someone who misses castles in their home country. I have often visited a road with a half a castle often. Its privately owned.
    There is a castle in Dunedin I have never been to Dunedin.
    I have visited 2 castles in England, Warwick Castle and Farmborough Castle in 1982 in the UK .Very impressive. Some buildings like a castle in Israel.

  2. Looks very quaint for a castle mansion. Seems ideally located also. We have one replica of a castle here in Canada made by a man for his wife if I remember well located near or on Thousands Islands. I have never seen or visited it but I love old architecture. It looks so much stronger and sturdier and prettier than the new high rises in glass…
