Location: New Ringgold, Pa.
Price: $11,900,000
The Skinny: Set on 210 acres in Pennsylvania's coal-bearing Schuylkill County, this 16,000-square-foot hilltop mansion was designed in 2000 by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the architects behind NYC's glassy Apple Store cube on Fifth Avenue. Wood and stone were introduced into the mix here in a design reminiscent of a traditional Japanese structure, but glass also plays a big role, opening up the rear facade to views of the rolling countryside. The property features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a swimming pool, a one-bedroom guest house, an eight-bedroom restored Sears kit house, and a spacious barn. The estate is currently on the market for almost $12M, certainly a pretty penny to spend on a spread in these parts.
