This St. Louis Castle Has a Hidden Safe Room and Shooting Range [PHOTOS]


It doesn’t have a moat, but this this St. Louis castle spares no expense when it comes to defense.

Located in Hampton Park, this 8,748 square foot house has a winding staircase, terrazzo floors and a medieval vibe. And though the style might hint at eras past, the house is full of modern amenities including heated floors, walk-in closets, a game room, a wine room and a gym. The luxury features continue out into the yard, where there’s a massive koi pond with a waterfall.

Still, what’s hidden away is the most impressive part of this house. In addition to a high-tech security system, the home also has a safe room and a private shooting range inside. The door to the safe room is labeled “Fort Knox” and it looks like the door to a bank vault.
