Castle last sold in 2013 for $1, now selling for $45 million. Why?

I'm just curious about what might have happened here.

1. The floors are amazing

All granite walls in the bathrooms. The place must be pure hell to heat. It will, however, withstand zombie hordes.

2. In addition to the post above, perhaps withstanding the peasant hordes

is also now a higher priority than it was a few years ago...

ETA: It may have had something to do with the zoning issue the owner was in. A $1 "sale" to refile the papers or something.

4. ? sounds like the $1 sale may have had something to do with the owner's girlfriend/wife problems

 

but it's not clear what...

8. I find it a little funny

 

that there is a regular-sized house across the street from this one with an above ground swimming pool in the backyard. Talk about overbuilding in the neighborhood.
