As Minecraft 1.19 arrived, the community returned to provide a host of medieval houses. These designs range from simple to relatively complex and use multiple types of blocks to bring out their optimal aesthetics. Players can recreate these designs entirely or use them as inspiration for their own unique builds.

Below, Minecraft players can find awesome medieval house designs to use after the Wild update.


Excellent medieval constructions to use after Minecraft 1.19 update

10) Medieval Mansion

This Minecraft house is both a castle and a medieval mansion. Stone brick work is most prominent in the structure of the central tower while also featuring deep slate brickwork for the roof. The rest of the build uses standard spruce and oak wood, and the interior has plenty of room for player survival needs and decorations.

Outboard hitches also allow players to keep their trusted mount tethered and nearby to reliably travel their world at will.


9) Castle on the mountainside

Mountains have become much more present in Minecraft after the massive Caves & Cliffs update. For this reason, mountain-themed builds have increased in prevalence in recent months.

This castle built by BigTonyMC uses a multitude of stone bricks and deep slate to create a cozy castle nestled in a mountain. The house itself is considerably spacious, and its connection to a mountain allows for exceptional expansion for players who don’t mind digging in a bit.

Since players will need a lot of stone to create this build anyway, digging into the side of a mountain will be a way to achieve an objective.

8) Blacksmith’s House

Blacksmiths have been around in Minecraft for years, but this house is definitely an upgrade over the standard forge villager. Composed mostly of stone blocks and spruce/oak wood, this house design shouldn’t take long to build, thanks to its easy-to-access materials.

A forge sits at ground level, allowing players to enter and craft as much as they need. Meanwhile, the interior offers sleeping quarters and storage to accommodate survival players as needed. The arched aesthetic of the exterior is also excellent for medieval appeal, and the forge chimney is a really nice touch.


7) Half-timbered house

Wood Logs go incredibly well when paired with Stone Bricks in Minecraft; this building is a perfect example. The masonry in this design creates the foundation and the porch, while the roofing features a combination of logs and wooden planks. This not only ensures the strength of the house, but also creates a warm atmosphere inside.

This beautiful lodge design should fit nicely into woodland biomes such as forests or even swamps. Players who want to take full advantage of the 1.19 update can even drop this house into a mangrove.

6) Medieval Church

Few medieval villages throughout history lacked a church, and this Minecraft build by jdawgrockz on Reddit takes advantage of that.

The huge central bell tower is completed by a beautiful multi-timbered vault. Although it may seem somewhat daunting to build, the structure is mostly made up of detailed and precise slab placement. The interior is also spacious enough to allow players to not only place pews and confessional booths, but also sleep and craft quarters for its creator if needed.


5) Medieval farmhouse

Farming is a big part of survival in Minecraft. This design from BuldTherapy keeps that in mind while providing a stunning medieval home.

This build is rustic and functional with a brick roof, woodwork, and even some vines for detail. It may not be particularly spacious, but it accommodates a large bulkhead for farming. With hay bales and carved pumpkin scarecrows, players can farm wheat, carrots, beets, and potatoes as they please while maintaining medieval visuals.

4) Medieval house with several towers

While some Minecraft builds build horizontally outwards, this design from nrgmix on Reddit builds upwards. The construction retains a small entrance but two large towers that rise into the sky. There’s even a small hallway connecting the two towers for convenient access. The variety of blocks is outstanding and the details on the exterior probably took as much work as the interior, if not more.

Add some shaders and this build can look absolutely stunning in the right light. It won’t be an easy build to recreate or emulate, but the results are certainly worth the time invested.


3) Medieval inn

Inns are another piece of historic medieval architecture, and some still exist to this day. This build by Dukeonred1 is probably one of the most elaborate hostels the Minecraft community has seen. The texture pack used in this version also perfectly matches the rustic look of the Middle Ages.

Once recreated, there’s no doubt that players can get together and hang out by the fire in this huge inn, which can clearly facilitate dorms for multiple players as they continue their Minecraft journeys together.

2) Dracula’s Castle

Constructed largely from dark oak wood, cobblestones and stone bricks, this build from YouTuber Trixyblox still captures pure macabre horror. This imposing construction, complete with a bridge over a swaying cliff, presents itself as isolated and strange.

Count Dracula is one of the main characters in horror fiction, and this recreation of his fearsome castle would make any Minecraft player think twice before exploring it. Who knows what dark secrets this castle may hold? Only the builder, and ultimately this amount of dark detail depends on them.


1) Floating Castle

Medieval architecture and fantasy go hand in hand, which also applies to Minecraft. YouTuber creator Twin Saw used this genre hybrid to create a very attractive castle floating above a lake.

Each independent island of this floating construction houses its own tower, with a central island guarding the central unit of the house. It may take a considerable amount of time to complete this floating design, but once it is complete, players can be proud of the results of their efforts. This creation provides an excellent refuge for a powerful baron or a lone wizard in a fantastical setting.
