that's what castles are ;-)

I call that a log cabin ;-)
log cabins are hardly be confused with castles normally.

elevation importance isn't likely a good criterion, I agree

no, it's not just a name, its a shape and a style and a marketing buzzword evocating future, technology and innovation, rather the opposite than a castle which is more about tradition, history and feudalism.
> "A man's home is his castle" - but the structure is still a "house". Same with Hearst.
I d call the hearst residence at least a villa, if castle doesn't find agreement.
