Europe may be king of the world's oldest castles, but the US is no chump when it comes to over-the-top private fortresses. Many of the States' most famous medieval-style mansions are either now registered historic sites & museums or currently occupied, but that doesn't mean you've struck out on an opportunity to own a nobility-worthy home here.
In fact, here are 10 incredible American castles* on the market right now. Now may be the time to call in that favor from your offensively rich uncle.
(*Castles in the sense that they borrow vague architectural elements from historic European castles, like stone towers, decorative elements, and grand medieval styled interiors. Also, moats.)
