I’ve been to most of these (Castle Dracula via Elizabeth Kostova, does that count?) but feel that there are a few missing…

    Rivendell, Meduseld, and Minas Tirith? Now that’s complete. I’m not sure I could live underground hence (selfishly) would not recommend adding Bag End. Or the Nautilus (underwater), Captain Nemo’s home. I think Castle Dracula counts, vicariously.

    The women’s house in The Ocean at the end of the Lane is pretty cool, though maybe I think so because the story is a recent read. Literary properties–what a wonderful theme!
