Winter is coming. Yes, I know it’s spring time, but for those who are fans of the HBO series Game of Thrones knows exactly what that means.
Back in July, nominees for the 64th annual Primetime Emmys were announced and we happened to notice that the programs in the “Outstanding Drama Series” category all had great writing, acting and directing but some truly stunning homes as well. So to commemorate the shows we all love and the homes featured in them, we dedicated a week long series of blog posts to exploring some of the fantastic homes featured in the “Outstanding Drama Series” category.
If you prefer blankets to swim trunks and skis to surfboards, then the castle at Winterfell from “Game of Thrones” might have piqued your interest if you were in the market for a cozy home (or hut) a few thousand years ago. The next nominee for “Outstanding Home in a Drama Series” is none other than Winterfell Castle, which is widely considered to be the capital of the North. Winterfell is located between the capital of the Seven Kingdoms (King’s Landing) and the dreaded “Wall” that keeps civilized society separate from Wildlings and very angry frozen zombies.
