A historic castle that set the backdrop for Game of Thrones can now be yours for close to the price of a house in London and less than the price of a home in Los Angeles

A portion of Gosford Castle, a mid-1800s castle that was the location of Robb Stark’s execution of Rickard Karstark and other pivotal scenes, is now being sold for a starting price of £500,000 (roughly $656,147 USD).

The castle, which was built by the the second Earl of Gosford Archibald Acheson, sits in Northern Ireland on the grounds of the Gosford Forest Park, where you’ll find deer roaming the scenic trails.

Over the years, the castle has had several uses, including housing the Earls of Gosford through 1921 and accommodating troops during World War II. It was used again by the military during The Troubles conflict and then later converted into a hotel.

After being purchased by developers in the early 2000s, the property, which has more than 15 rooms and a total of 10 bathrooms, was split into various sections, one of which is currently up for sale.

While the available portion of the property is currently zoned for apartments and residential use, representatives from the listing company Maison Real Estate told Travel + Leisure that interested buyers could revive the space back to its glory days as a hotel once they obtain zoning rights.
