Carcassonne Castle. Marblehead, MA.

 

The Basics

Construction on the 23-room, 11-bath Carcassonne Castle in Marblehead, MA. began during the great depression and was completed in 1935 by the grand-daughter of Lydia Pinkham, the herbalist mogul. Carcassonne (named after the medieval city in France) has 7 fireplaces, a saltwater pool, and sits on 2.5 acres of land.

The Beauty

The Atlantic Ocean as a backyard and its close proximity to the volcanic ash boulders of Castle Rock make Carcassonne irresistible to photographers.
