House of the Day Penniman Castle
House of the Day Penniman Castle

We admit it, we're obsessed with castles. Ever since that dream Miami castle with a moat, we've been scouring the interwebs for similar royal properties. And though this one doesn't have a moat, it's just as grand.

Penniman Castle in Battle Creek, Mich., is a local landmark (it's on the National Register of Historic Places), and it's just hit the market. The majestic castle home boasts stunning crenulated towers and arched windows, and it's built in a traditional "H" pattern, flanked by octagonal towers that anchor each point. Inside the six-bedroom house, you'll find classic features, such as solid wooden door lintels, stony outdoor siding in the living rooms and antique wood-burning stoves. Adorned with vintage chandeliers and furnishings, the home boasts an Old World, romantic vibe.

Best of all, the home -- built in 1906 -- is only $165,000. Who says you can't live royally on a commoner's budget? Hat tip to our friends at Realtor for the tip.
