Would you have ever thought that you could live in a castle in the United States? Well, maybe you can. So, if you’re looking for some much-needed inspiration in your search for a new home, look no further.

These listings from Zillow show how castle-living can be a reality — and sometimes for even less than you might think. Although they technically might not be considered castles in Europe (perhaps just really nice houses designed like castles), we certainly wouldn’t mind calling one of these our own!
