WEST PLAINS, Mo. – How many of us have said we’re the king or queen of the castle? You can make that idiom come to life by owning a medieval-style keep in southern Missouri.

Built just off U.S. Highway 160 and surrounded by trees and rolling hills, this home is located approximately 20 miles north of the Missouri-Arkansas border in Howell County.

The long driveway is blocked by wrought-iron gates and guarded by stone lion sculptures. The keep features balconies or battlements in the front and back of the home, each with their own gargoyles.

The 36-acre estate also contains two ponds.

The intricate stone facade stands in stark contrast with the inside, which is mostly wood paneling. Although built in 1995, the eye-catching interior is a throwback to the 1970s, so you could host your Dungeons and Dragons and Disco night in the unfinished basement!
