These 5 Castle-Inspired Homes Offer a Royal Lifestyle for Every Budget

If you’ve always dreamed of being the king or queen of your castle, how about actually living there?

Whether you’re on a budget or willing to shell out a king’s ransom for a lavish display, we’ve got a royal residence for you.

We’re not the only ones obsessed with castles right now. Dynamic design duo Chip and Joanna Gaines just finished the total renovation of a century-old castle in Waco, TX. You can watch the transformation on their new show “Fixer Upper: Welcome Home—The Castle” on the Magnolia Network.

In case you’re craving more royal musings, here’s a look at five fairytale homes from Idaho to Florida you can buy right now.

Price: $5,700,000
Long vacation : Here is a knight in shining armor awaiting your entry into this majestic 8,891 square foot mansion.

Climb the tree-lined road to the spectacular gated entrance to arrive at this quaint six-bedroom palace.

Built in 2008, the luxury property features lots of hand-carved wood details, from the kitchen cabinets and Italian fireplace mantle to the arched doorways and Juliette balconies.

As befits a castle, this one has two corner towers. There’s also a gym, a five-car garage, and an oversized pool with a bar and fountains.

Price: $2,500,000
Medieval masterpiece: This exquisite 6,106 square foot castle looks like something from the Middle Ages, even though it was built in 1990.

The Gothic house on 6.25 acres features a wrought iron fence with two gated towers. The multi-level structure stands 60 feet tall (taller than a four-story building) and comes complete with its own moat, waterfall, and drawbridge.

Inside the 26-room house there are five fireplaces, secret rooms, hidden doors and passageways, and a hidden staircase.

Although it may seem like a lot to walk through, an elevator provides easy access from the lower-level Tudor-style pub to the enormous upper-level master suite.

Wonder at the water’s edge: This newly built whimsical castle was constructed with granite quarried in British Columbia and hewn on site to resemble a medieval fortress.

Situated on 8.6 acres overlooking Lake Pend Oreille and adjoining Frandsen Forest, the home features two bedrooms and three bathrooms. The wooden beams of the 8,000 square foot house were harvested from the nearby forest. There’s also a stone tunnel, a two-level dock, and an indoor plunge pool.

Only a few finishes remain to make this castle a one-of-a-kind mansion.

Good deal : This Tudor-style castle is the most affordable on our list. The royal residence, on the market for over a year, is also available for rent.

The original castle is the three-story tower that was “built from the bunker of a survivalist who lived off the grid,” the listing says. It was once a preparation palace!

Located on 7 acres in the Boston Mountains of the Ozarks, the four-bedroom home features custom doors and glass, plus a secret door.

The castle comes with a 70 foot wooden bridge, which can be closed off from the main road.
