Attention Goths: Your Ultimate Real Estate Purchase Awaits!

Castle Bran, the purported home of the real Dracula, is up for sale.  Built in 1377, the place requires a little work–like, er, some bathrooms–but if you want space, you’ll find it amongst its 57 rooms.  Then again, the place receives some 560,000 tourists a year, so privacy could be a problem.

One catch: Dracula never actually lived there outside of a two-month imprisonment.  A minor quibble, however.

How much?  We’re not sure, but the bidding will start at $135 million USD.
