Built with thick walls of solid limestone, the Castle is well secluded from the street by a tall stone wall with stone steps and a fully landscaped bank with mature trees and plantings. Nestled in a natural setting of 1.5 wooded acres in the heart of Manhattan, the Castle is located in a neighborhood of quality-built, beautifully maintained vintage homes, all within walking distance of Downtown, City Park, Sunset Zoological Park, and Kansas State University.
Privacy is ensured with black wrought-iron fencing on three sides of the grounds; a wooded creek bank runs alongside the South property line. A new driveway winds its way through the beautifully landscaped grounds with signature wrought iron entrance gates at either end.
