Lord British's House Up For Sale


Posted October 19, 2011 - By Stephen Johnson

Lord British's House

The house you see in the photo above is Britannia Manor II, the home of Ultima designer Richard "Lord British" Garriott, and it's for sale. The medieval-themed home looks out over Austin, TX and features a 360 degree observatory with telescope, pool, grotto, waterfall, and most likely secret passages that lead to dungeons and/or gates to Hell. The asking price: $4,100,000.00.

Call me crazy, but most people with four mil sitting around to buy a house probably have their own unique visions for homespaces, and they probably don't include as many Dungeons and Dragons references as Garriott's, but still, I'd live there in a heartbeat... in fact, I'm thinking of getting 4,000 friends together together to pledge $1000 each and creating the ultimate nerd time-share!  Who's in?

To read more about Garriott's house, and for tons of pictures, check out the real estate listing. But the listing is pretty bare-bones, and leaves out the secret passageways, mazes, dungeon and other awesomeness. Check out this tour of the house on HGTV:

All of the best people are following Stephen Johnson's twitter feed. Also, email me if you wanna.
