From the listing: "Originally built for the John Loughlin family, the Bonnyconnellan Castle has withstood the test of time and humanity. Her massive Bedford limestone turrets rise above the forty hand-cut stone steps at the Walnut Street entrance. Her front is protected by a stately wrought iron fence and 4 statuesque Gargoyles. She is accompanied by an all brick carriage house at the rear of the property. The massive master suite houses the spiraling staircase that was reported to have been used by Secret Service members to keep watch over President Ronald Reagan when his train traveled through Sidney. This "beautiful lady" is ready to be loved, rehabilitated, and offered a new life. She is expansive and offers 5,104 square feet. Zoned R3, she could not only be used as a residential home, but also an amazing bed & breakfast or boarding house. This is an opportunity to own a monumental building with significant history."
