Own Adelina Patti's Former Home at a $2.4 Million Price Tag

"Craig-y-Nos Castle, the imposing 40-bedroom hotel and former Welsh home of legendary opera star, Adelina Patti, has been put up for sale - on the proviso that the new owner keeps it trading as an ongoing business. The neo-Gothic complex in the Swansea Valley is currently run as a country house hotel, and has in excess of £1 million of forward bookings. The castle has a price tag of £1.5 million and has been described as a 'hidden gem,' coming
complete with its own Grade I-listed theatre - a creation added by Patti herself after she bought it in 1878, offering world-class operatic acoustics. The building - which dates back to 1843 - has had substantial structural and renovation work carried out on it since the current owner, businessman Martin Gover, purchased it ten years ago and began running it as a hotel."
