The castle, which became famous due to the Vlad-inspired 'Dracula' by Bram Stoker has been offered to the local council who have been given a month for first refsual. After that it's on the open market and can be obtained by vampire lovers with no sense of money.
Personally £40 million is, in my opinion, way too expensive for this castle. You can get much nicer castles for a tenth of the price. It's amazing what having a dark history and tourist attraction does for real estate isn't it!
