That is a privately owned house. It is located on Captains Quarters Road off Jamestown Road.   I believe it was built in the 70's and has been sold once or twice.  The house is all brick and designed on the outside to resemble a castle - the inside has traditional square rooms.  There is also a geodesic home not too far from the castle and there is a house with a movable roof for a telescope on 78th Street.

Great question - Savas gave you the answer you were looking for and taught me something too. Here's a pict of the pace from Google Street View.

That home is right across the canal from me.  At one time and maybe it was the original owner, a CEO of a cleaning solution lived there.  I can not remember the name but it had letters and numbers in the name.

I know most unusual buildings in OC fairly well, but unfortunately, I cannot figure out what building you are referring to. The Greene Turtle on Coastal Highway at Jamestown Road in OC has the bay behind it, and some residential neighborhoods. To the north a few blocks the Heron Harbor development has some very large houses near the bay, but I can't recall any that are brick or that look like a castle. The Greene Turtle in West OC also has no building matching your description near it.

Sorry I could not help more. I'll be back in OC next week, and I'll see if I can figure out the place you are referencing.
