Location: Annapolis, Md.
The Skinny: Built in 1830, this Annapolis mansion was in a sorry state when the current owners happened upon it in the mid-1990s. The couple set about taking the structure down to the studs, repairing leaks, updating systems, and generally restoring the stately home to its former glory. There are some hiccups: the kitchen has an odd built-in fruit basket and some of the bedrooms suffer from some dated designs, but nothing some new furnishings and coats of paint can't fix. Set on almost 150 riverfront acres, complete with a private dock, this estate was certainly worth saving, even more so if the owners get their $6.75M asking price. The compound includes two guest houses and three tenant houses—for those working the existing sod farm—but cannot be subdivided, which means this will remain a large private estate for the foreseeable future.
