Howard Solomon, Artist, Built A Castle In Florida Complete With A Moat And Dungeon (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It's pretty much every little kid's dream to grow up and live in a castle. And while some of us may have given up hope of ever living in a space that can host hundreds, artist Howard Solomon decided to fulfill his dream and build himself a castle.

According to the Daily Mail, "Solomon's Castle" is located in Ona, Florida and took 12 years to build, although new additions are constantly being and added. Solomon, who works with discarded materials, covered the outside of the house with aluminum off-set printing plates. The home is 12,000 square feet and on the property you'll find a moat, dungeon, drawbridge, stained glass windows and amazing gardens.

The best part is, you can actually visit the castle and stay overnight in the Blue Moon Room, located in the East tower. Watch the video above to learn more about this amazing property, and be sure to visit Solomon's webpage for more information. H/T to the Daily Mail.
