This week: Castle homes

1. Denver The Richthofen Castle, completed in 1887, was built by the godfather of the World War I flying ace known as the Red Baron. Modeled after the original owner’s ancestral home, it’s constructed of Colorado limestone and has 35 rooms, including a library, a billiards room, and a music alcove. Many rooms feature leaded glass windows and wood paneling with ornamental carving. Exterior highlights include the elaborate porte cochere and a rear courtyard. $3,750,000. Casey Miller, Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty, (720) 201-2755

Scott Horty, Camden Real Estate, (207) 236-6171

3. Miami Chateau Artisan sits on a 14-acre gated property on its own moat-like lake. The perfectly symmetrical 21st-century castle is viewed first from a long, tree-lined formal drive. After passing through the home’s grand-scale rooms, visitors encounter a koi pond, a courtyard, and two mid-lake gazebos. A swim across the water leads to a hilltop picnic area made to look like an ancient ruin. $10,900,000. Judy and Nathan Zeder, Esslinger Wooten Maxwell, (305) 960-2475
