Perhaps you've never thought to yourself about living in an enormous suburban castle, but the people who built these homes certainly thought about it enough to shell out big bucks to bring their fantasy to life. And just as the homes are unique, they will certainly require an equally eccentric buyer. However, if you've wanted to just escape it all and be the master of your domain, these two castles are definitely worth considering.

Broker's notes: "Majestic detail throughout this breathtaking castle. Impressive entryway. Stone and brick with 18" walls and 12" floors. Sound proof. Distinctive style. Imported wrought iron. Royal billiard room. Five full suites. Elevator, radiant heat floors. Perfect for entertaining. 12K square feet of impeccable quality. Lower level game room, theater, workout room, wine cellar and bar. Rooftop ready for deck install. Fit for a king and queen."
Additional notes: Now, this is a castle. While it's definitely got tons of castle qualities, it's actually crammed right in the middle of a suburban subdivision. For $4.2 million, buyers can get a lot of home pretty much anywhere in Chicago, so this home is going to have to wait quite a while until a unicorn with that much cash comes along.
