Who wants to buy a Castle?

Josiah Firth added the tower in 1871, making it one of the earliest concrete structures in Australasia.
Josiah Firth’s 1873 tower, the earliest large semi-reinforced concrete
structure in the Southern Hemisphere, now yours for a less-than-paltry sum.

Yes, The Castle is now for sale. Home at various times to one of Auckland and the Waikato’s pioneering businessmen, of NZ’s patron saint of pot, and finally of too many “over-excited people in the tower,” the tower, house and grounds that have seen history over the years are now on the market.

Rumours that martini stains will prove too difficult to remove have been described as “totally unfounded.”
