$12.8M Upstate Castle May Look Medieval, but It’s Only 30 Years Old

Knights, turrets, life-size lion statues, secret passageways...this stone castle looks like something straight out of "Game of Thrones." But, believe it or not, the upstate mansion is not medieval at all; it was built just 30 years ago. Located in Bolton Landing, New York, up in the Adirondacks and overlooking Lake George, Highlands Castle was conceived by John Lavender, a man who (for some unknown reason) told his then-three-year-old son that he'd build him a castle. A decade later, he did just that, and he's now listed the one-of-a-kind home for $12.8 million.
