Secret passageways and a lazy river complete this Florida castle

Behind Florida real estate

If you thought the only castle to be found in Florida was Cinderella's castle in Disney World, think again.

Sitting on nearly 3.5 acres of land, Cartmel castle (yes, the home has its own name) is quite a sight to be seen.

We all know how hot and humid it gets down south, so the builders of this estate went with the most logical solution and built a pool with an elevated cabana.

Oh, and it also has its own lazy river, so you might want to grab your tube.

Check out this real-life fairytale castle below:

The property boasts 648 feet of lakefront land, because who needs the ocean when you're living in a 5,000-square-foot castle?

If you're ever feeling adventurous, explore the secret passageways and hidden doors that are built throughout, leading you everywhere from the kitchen to the grand library (which features an imported antique fireplace from the Johnny Walker Mansion in Scotland).

The estate is complete with 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, including a separate apartment over the garage (opportunity for Airbnb, anyone?)

Cartmel castle is currently on the market for $8.9M, which is up quite a bit from the $4.7M price it sold for in 2014.

While you're at it, check out this castle in Ohio that's also on the market:
