Location: Lake George, N.Y.
The Skinny: Built as only Gilded Age captains of industry could build 'em, this magnificent $12.9M Tudor Revival home on New York's Lake George is a beautifully preserved example of the opulent mansions of the early 20th-century elite. Dubbed Wikiosco after the Algonquin for "Home on Beautiful Waters," the house was built by Brooklyn Con Edison founder (and excellent name-haver) Royal C. Peabody based on a design by his son, architect Charles S. Peabody, whose firm also designed such landmarks as NYC's Mercantile Building and portions of Vanderbilt University. The 20,000-square-foot mansion sits on almost seven acres of rolling waterfront land, with 545 feet of lake-frontage, and, per the listing, features original "carved oak doors, decorative carved built-ins, oak beams, stain-glassed windows, crown moldings and wainscoting."
