Castle Eltz v1.5 by Yevic

=================
Requirements:
=================

Oblivion 1.2.0.416

=================
Description:
=================

A medium-sized castle in the remote wilderness of Cyrodiil, located at the very end of the road that passes by Malada (the ruin from the collectors quest, where you get the panel). The first room you walk into is the Entry Hall, also on this hall is the main stairway, dining hall, and service wing. On the second floor is the library and living rooms. On the third floor, there's a bathroom and 4 bedrooms; 3 have their own special color themes, and the 4th is in the tower, and was originally designed for the children of the Castle's owners, hence its name. There's also a hidden grotto you can access through a hidden door in the wine cellar.

The cost is a base of 50,000, differs depending on barter skill. You can buy it from the Head Gaurd (man up on the wall).
