Location: Baltimore, Md.
Price: $799,000
The Skinny: Baltimore's tony Roland Park neighborhood has not seen the blight that has marred much of the rest of the city, but prices there have suffered for decades, as Baltimore's wealthy sought suburban homes instead. For preservationists and historic house enthusiasts this is good news, as most of the neighborhood's grandiose mansions have survived largely intact and are available at low prices. Built in 1913, this manse, set high above University Parkway, is one of Roland Park's most recognizable. Distinguished by a curved colonnade, the mansion is remarkably well preserved, with ornate woodwork, extensive moldings, and original stained glass windows. The best part, of course, is the price, a measly $799K for ten bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms just 10 minutes from downtown.
