Castle Home

A man's home is his castle? This is a private home someone built on a formerly empty lot -- because he could. There's even a gargoyle by the front door.

[Ed Lenarcic, 10/06/2015]

Owner Tim Barber had his castle built over a period of two years. He moved in July 2011, then listed the castle for sale in 2015 at $4 million.
