There is a small private residence near dade city fla, (maybe in blanton, fla) that looks like a small castle. It is orange, the last time I looked. It is near pasco-hernando community college. Mini castle at best.

I came upon your site trying to find a castle for a wedding. I was pretty fascinated by all the castles listed. I used to live near Dade City, Florida in Zephyrhills. The home in the Blanton area mentioned on your site sounds like the one they used for the movie “Edward Scissorhands” in 1990. This can be easily checked out with the Chamber of Commerce. The last time I saw the house, it was no longer available for the public, but you can still see a nice view from the road.

I received this email answering my request for information about the “castle” in or near Dade City, FL….

The movie was made here in Dade City but the castle was only a movie prop which was on County Road 41, near Pasco Hernando Community College. It is no longer here. The subdivision which was painted pink (not orange) was on State Road 54 near Land O’Lakes.

In response to you request for information on the Castle in/near Dade City, FL. The private residence still remains. It sits and is occupied (to the best of my knowledge, as the lawn is cared for and cars are often in the driveway.) at 36646 Blanton Rd (aka county road 41), Dade City, Fl. You can view it via www.maps.google.com . The movie prop that was very near that same location is no longer there as stated by the e-mail posted on the website dated 7-6-05. The house was at one point a pinkish/orangish color, depending on your perception of the odd color. It has since been painted a beige color. I'm sorry to say that even though I grew up in the immediate area, I don't know who owns the residence. I hope that this information will help you to improve your website. I really enjoyed visiting and seeing that the home has been noticed.

Does anyone have any information on this?
