Suburban Philadelphia homes that truly are castles

1079 Baron Drive, Bryn Mawr

It is one thing to own a mansion or an estate. It is quite another to own a castle. These three homes have curb appeal and design choices that will make their buyers feel like lords and ladies (if they have a few million to spend).

1079 Baron Drive, Bryn Mawr 
Monthly taxes: $2,680 
Tell me all about it: First of all, this five-bedroom home is actually named Castlebridge. The interior design includes exposed, carved timbers, leaded windows, grand wooden doors and iron chandeliers. We get it. The lower-level, temperature-controlled wine cellar is also fit for a queen.

103 Ironstone Lane, Kennett Square 
 Monthly taxes: $3,933 
Tell me all about it: Foxwynd is a six-bedroom estate inspired by the British Isles. The choices in light fixtures and the wood-paneled great room certainly evoke landed gentry. The grounds include a perfectly delightful English garden we can imagine strolling around idly with our court.

1726 River Rd., New Hope 
 Monthly taxes: $2,682 
Tell me all about it: This five-bedroom home is actually called The Castle (a little on the nose, we know). But it’s easy to see why. There are Venetian plaster, a room for service, a formal courtyard with fountain and perfect slate roofs with copper gutters. Since it’s situated along the water, you might even say it has a moat.
