Sunspear

In the heart of Death Valley, California, where recorded temperatures have topped 130 degrees Fahrenheit, sits a Spanish-style manor called "Scotty's Castle". This remote desert residence could easily act as a modern version of Sunspear, capital of the sparsely populated desert region of Dorne.

Pyke

Isolated in the center of Flathead Lake in Montana, the stately Shelter Island Estate would be the perfect modern seat of the seafaring House Greyjoy.

The Eyrie

This elegant home, set high on a rocky outcrop on Prevost Island, British Colombia, has a bird's-eye view of the coast and sea below. Custom-made by a Nanaimo custom home builder, it even includes House Arryn's favorite feature--a Moon Door.

Highgarden

The seat of one of Westeros' second-wealthiest family, House Tyrell, a modern Highgarden would be elegant, grandiose, and--of course--surrounded by lush gardens. This French Chateau in Asheville, North Carolina certainly fits the bill, boasting several courtyards and two acres of gorgeously landscaped property.
