Location: Newport, R.I.
The Skinny: It is fitting that America's greatest Gilded Age architect, Stanford White, would create some of his finest work in the great Gilded Age summer enclave of Newport, R.I. The Samuel Tilton House, completed in 1882, was one of White's early works, and blends the Queen Anne and Shingle styles to dazzling effect. Distinguished by intricate stained glass windows, delicate wood carving, and original brasswork, the Tilton House remains a prime example of period architecture. Now available for sale for $2.5M—a surprisingly low price considering the pedigree and location—this 6,300-square-foot Stanford White creation boasts nine bedrooms, five bathrooms, a double-height music room, and a guaranteed lifetime of expensive maintenance.
