As per the realtor selling Helmer Castle, the reason Helmer decided to build the place was due to his love of medieval castles. And this particular one is based on a 5th-century Roman hall near Nuremberg in Germany.

Not to worry, you won't find spooky and poky dark hallways here. The castle's been modernized and sports a more contemporary style, and even has a roomy garage — something that wasn't quite in style back in the 5th century.

The pièce de résistance is its tower, or turret, with a spiral staircase. Can you picture yourself enjoying your morning cup of coffee sitting atop your tower looking over the treetops? What a way to start the day! 

And if that wasn't enough to quite tickle your fancy, you can choose from three other outdoor patios to enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding forest. There's even a lighted outdoor basketball court and walking, running, or sledding exploring trails all available right in the 20-acre plot of land.
