The Skinny: Cass Gilbert, the McKim, Mead, & White apprentice who later achieved fame with his design for NYC's towering Woolworth Building, penned the plans for this brick and sandstone mansion on St. Paul's tony Summit Avenue. Measuring 7,600 square feet, the Romanesque pile houses seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, nine fireplaces, and rear porches with stunning downhill views over the city and the Mississippi. Some of the renovations to the 1900 masterpiece have been misguided—there's new (ugly) tile in the master bathroom and surrounding a fireplace—but there's one unique selling point that might make up for a few ill-advised alterations: the crumbling ruins of the carriage house, spilling off the hillside out back.
