The first floor, has the dining room, parlor, hall, sitting room, bedroom and conservatory, as well as two rear porches and a veranda at the front entry.




The  conservatory or sun room was an office for Mr. McMurphey


The second floor contains three bedrooms, the “hired girl’s room”, a sleeping porch and a bathroom. The roof of the veranda and the conservatory on the first floor is roofed in copper and is accessible through the windows on the second floor.


The central staircase connects the attic story to the second floor. The attic area includes a small room in the turret, a south-facing room and a large open area.

The Top Floor has a Model of the Castle on the Hill


All the Photos were taken with very Low Light Conditions inside the House,  Some of them were a little Dark

  • Here I also could spend a long time inside. That cooking unit is so great, I have seen them here when I was young visiting old familymembers who lived outside the city

    • Yea I have never been inside that house till that day, always just photographed the outside. I caught them about 10 minutes from closing, I said I would comeback but the voice from upstairs said I could in haha I just toured the floors snapping a few shots with the wrong lens haha Yes I agree I could spend more time in there, I need to go back The kitchen is a little modernized the stove and the tools on the walls were about it Thanks for the nice comment and visit Peter I appreciate it 🙂

  • I was going to ask in your last post if the castle was open to the public….obviously it is seeing this post. Very nice photos of a house I would love to have, with one caveat…….must come with a maid and butler 😊

    • The funny thing is I have photographed that house a lot because I like that era of architecture, this was the first time I was able to see the inside. I agree you would need a maid and a butler haha the images really dont show how big the house is haha Thanks for the visit and the wonderful comment Camellia

  • Wow, that was interesting, Thomas!
