Starter Castle

By on October 31, 2018

A starter castle is a tongue-in-cheek term used to describe a very big house constructed on a very small lot.

The house on the land might be built all the way to the edge of the land, leaving no space for a yard or garden.

The implication of a property that is described as a starter castle is that the owners will be spending all their money on the mortgage and have nothing left for furnishing and fixtures.

It is therefore sometimes perceived as a derogatory expression.

Such properties are also sometimes jokingly referred to as McMansion with reference to Mcdonald’s for the big value meals they serve on the menu.
