Flea-readers with a spare US$135m might consider hitting the tip jar; Bran Castle is for sale. There could hardly be a more ideal Flea HQ.

An heir of Romania's former royal family put "Dracula's Castle" in Transylvania up for sale on Monday, hoping to secure a buyer who will respect "the property and its history," a U.S.-based investment company said. The Bran Castle, perched on a cliff near Brasov in mountainous central Romania, is a top tourist attraction because of its ties to Prince Vlad the Impaler, the warlord whose cruelty inspired Bram Stoker's 1897 novel, "Dracula."

In related news: Vampires still kicking werewolf ass. Not related at all really: The Hauntening. Scaaary.

Househunting Update: Agent Bedhead calls it the ultimate chick magnet.

... the labyrinth of hidden corners and secret chambers are guaranteed to fluster even the least ditzy busty babes, so unsuspecting females will have no choice but to rip open their bodices, fling themselves upon Dracula’s bed, and beg for mercy.

This is very nearly correct.
