Built in 1898, the Victoria 9,000 square-foot Victorian home sits on 55 acres and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

According to Wikipedia,

The David Hyatt Van Dolah House (locally known as The Castle) is a historic house located at 10 North Spencer Street in Lexington, Illinois. The house was built in 1898 for David Hyatt Van Dolah, a prominent local landowner best known as an importer and broker of French horses. Architect George H. Miller, one of the most well-regarded architects in the Bloomington area, and his partner James E. Fisher designed the house in the Queen Anne style.

There's plenty to take in outside: "meticulously manicured grounds that illustrates an awe-inspiring visual spectacle that commands attention and admiration."

There's also a one-bedroom, one-bathroom pool house to complement the in-ground pool and adjoining tennis court.

A restored 36-passenger miniature train and vintage 36-horse carousel operate out of two commercial-grade buildings.

As for the home itself, it's made up of intimately sized rooms across three floors, accessed by a stunning floating staircase or original elevator.

You'll find gorgeous touches like embossed hardware and hand-painted ceilings.

While it would be incredible to live their, you could also rent it out. I was thinking it'd be perfect for a wedding venue, like imagine the photos on that carousel/ train - turns out I was right.
