Location: Moss Point, Mississippi
Price: $398,000

For the newly reduced price of $398K, you can live like bona fide royalty in the river town of Moss Point, Mississippi. Once past the charming plantation style front porch, the thoroughly restored late 1800s Victorian wows with period woodwork and details, original heart pine floors, 12-foot ceilings, spectacular chandeliers, and a huge sunroom. And fireplace lovers, take note: each of the three spacious bedrooms and the living room all have their own.

According to Find Everything Historic, the 3,200-square-foot home was the longtime home of a local doctor and his wife, who "held elegant parties, played the piano and wore very fancy hats." The grandeur of the home is less surprising then. Early additions to the original structure include a dining room attaching the kitchen and sun porch, as well as the piano room. Clocking in at 1.18 acres, the lot includes a guest cottage and fountain, and comes with landscaping boasting live oaks, camellias, gardenias, and more.
