EDIT: While this building is very castle-like in nature, it is not the original Glen Turner Castle. It is in fact, just the boathouse. The original castle was four stories tall, built to resemble an existing castle in France.
This one-of-a-kind lakefront estate and revamped boathouse could be a real conversation starter for those holiday get-togethers … or somewhere to fashionably escape to during a zombie apocalypse.
The 3,754 SF castle is the crown atop a beautiful 7.44-acre property on the southern shore of Bear Gully Lake in Winter Park and was once the home of motivational speaker Glenn W. Turner.

The entire exterior was made with Georgia granite which is notoriously difficult for ninjas to climb on. Plus you’d see their black getup from a mile away. Which is how far your mailbox is from the house.
The three bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home features beautifully soaring ceilings, a large great room in which to welcome visiting royalty and their entourages, a fireplace with its own stone seating, an over-sized kitchen to fix your feasts with, an island bar for ten of your closest friends, and a tower with a pointy roof.
It all overlooks the aforementioned Bear Gully Lake, which you could also survey from your wrap around deck. You may be able to see your three boat slips from there too, or Alaska.
The asking price is $1,800,000.

This remarkable home is located at 4082 Scarlet Iris Place, Winter Park [GMap] and we joke because we’re sad that we could never afford it.
