Location: Durham, Pennsylvania
Price: $845,000

Over in the quiet village of Durham, Pennsylvania, a rather standout brick house has come on the market, vying for attention. The listing says it was "built by the wealthiest man in town," a businessman who ran a company that manufactured windows, doors, millwork, and moldings. This background in woodwork certainly shows throughout the house. Built in 1880, the 3,800-square-foot home was completely renovated in 2012. The well-lit home asking $845K features its original arched double doors, 11-foot ceiling, two large parlors, and a brand new eat-in kitchen.

The polished wooden stairs leads to four bright, spacious bedrooms upstairs. Current furnishings look rather anemic, but the place sure has some great bones. The four-bedroom house sits on just over an acre of land, which comes with an updated one-bedroom guesthouse, and a gentle stream in the backyard.
