I admit that living in a castle is a total fantasy of mine. It must have been all of those Disney princess movies I watched growing up. And, I’ve always wanted a moat. Yes, a moat.

Now, a massive medieval castle is for sale on six acres of land in Rochester, Michigan. It’s not cheap, though, as the listing price is $2.29 million- and it could climb.

“The frame is built with 60 tons of steel and construction took over six years utilizing artisans from all over the world,” the listing states on Zillow. “The castle is 60 feet tall, or taller than a four-story building.”

The castle is a whopping 10,790-square-foot home, and it features a waterfall, drawbridge, elevator, secret rooms, hidden staircase, wine cellar, pub and more.

Oh, and it has a moat. My dream home! View more information and check out photos here.
