Location: Charleston, S.C.
The Skinny: Today, this columned mansion sits at 40 Rutledge Avenue, but it wasn't built here. At some point, the 4,300-square-foot house was chopped up and moved from its original location at Belvedere Plantation, where an Exxon refinery now stands. Now for sale for the first time in 25 years, the six-bedroom, five-bath manse was operated as an inn for many years, and has a separate owner's apartment with private entrance. What was once the centerpiece of a massive plantation is now shoehorned onto a small urban lot, but the open views to the west, of Colonial Lake, keep things from feeling too cramped. Best of all, the price is a reasonable $1.65M, not bad for all that historic detail and a good story.
