Location: New Hartford, N.Y.
The Skinny: Were this house located in the immediate suburbs of NYC, it would be worth at least seven-figures, if not much, much more. Instead, this immensely charming historic home is located in New Hartford, N.Y., outside of Utica, a four-hour drive from the Big Apple and an hour from Syracuse. For buyers who don't mind a long drive, this could be the bargain of the century. Built in 1928 at a reported cost of $200K, the 10,650-square-foot, 20-room mansion was constructed for artist Lee Jeffreys, an heir to the Domino Sugar fortune. Though neglected at the hands of some of its owners, the house has been recently restored to its original glory, including all eight bedrooms, seven bathrooms, seven fireplaces, vaulted library, and picture-perfect greenhouse. Despite all the time and money poured into the restoration, the house is asking a relatively reasonable $750K.
