Historic $8.3 million Italian castle for sale

Are you a history buff with $8.3 million to spare? If so, you may be in luck.

A historic Italian castle has been listed on Douglas Elliman Real Estate for $8.3 million. The Castle di Sismano was donated by Emperor Otto in 962 and passed along to the Corsini family.

The castle, located in the town of Todi in southern Umbria, has 40 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms. The historic building sits on farmland, surrounded by farmhouses and a residential building complex of seven villas with attached gardens. It has a newly added pool.

For those looking to expand, the property includes six plots for the construction of single family or two-family homes.

If you really want to live in this castle, you're not the only one. The previous owners said David Bowie wanted to buy the property 10 years ago, but it was unavailable at the time, according to Elliman's PR manager.
