Glynallyn Castle is a historic 66-room mansion located at 12 Canfield Road in Morristown, NJ and is situated on 7.5 acres. It was constructed between 1913 – 1917 by George Marshall Allen, a New York businessman who made his fortune from color printing patents and investments in utilities, whiskey distilleries and starch conglomerates. This portfolio enabled him to spend an estimated $500,000 to build this 32,000 square foot Tudor style home in what was then known as Morristown’s “Millionaires’ Row.” He commissioned the renowned New York architect, Charles I. Berg, to replicate the regal Compton Wynates manor in Warwickshire, England. Allen chose the wooded land in Convent Station because it reminded him of the rolling English countryside. It boasts 15 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms and is currently the showcase home for New Jersey’s “Mansion in May” tour. It is on the market for $5,700,000.
