If you’ve ever wanted to live in your own castle, check out this four-bedroom, two-bath beauty in Pacific Grove, California. Known as the “Captain’s Castle,” the home was constructed in 1883 by Everett Pomeroy, a college professor and church organist. Pomeroy built the structure as an homage to his ancestor’s castle, the Berry Pomeroy Castle in Devon, England.

Located just steps from Monterey Bay, the 2,356-square-foot home features a square corner tower which offers a bird’s eye view of the water. The exterior also boasts gargoyles, gables, and battlements, while inside the home’s you’ll find an array of stained glass windows. Hardwood paneling, high ceilings, and built-in cabinetry create a warm and inviting space, and a Victorian style parlor has a brass-faced gas fireplace, an antique chandelier, and paneling with jewel-toned insets.

The bedrooms are situated on the second floor, all with more stained glass windows. But perhaps the most captivating feature is the third-floor paneled tower room with windows on three sides that allow for panoramic views. The property has served as a vacation rental in the past, and 106 7th Street is on the market now for $2,149,000.
