6 Reasons You Want to Live in This Lavish Palm Beach Castle

If you've ever dreamed of living like royalty, then here's your chance. Listed for $26.4 million, the historic El Castillo estate is a Palm Beach showstopper. And we have six really good reasons why you should move in...

We featured this spectacular Spanish-style estate last week in our gallery of Downton Abbey-esque homes, but we couldn't resist taking a closer look. Check out six stand-out features and browse more photos in the gallery below.

1. The tower is five stories high, so you can make a safe bet that the views are ahhhh-mazing.

2. Own a unique piece of history from famed architect Addison Mizner.

The detailing on the mantel of the fireplace and the design of the floors makes for an interesting combination of style.

3. Imagine the parties you could throw on the rooftop.

4. Kick back like royalty in a private pool cabana.

5. It may look like a medieval castle on the outside, but you'll have every modern convenience on the inside.
