A Turn-of-the-Century Queen Anne Mansion in the Land of Dot Com

Location: Palo Alto, California

Price: $3,798,000

Upon its completion in 1897, this house on Palo Alto's leafy Hale Street was dubbed "one of the handsomest dwellings in town" by the Palo Alto Times. Today, the William Rhodes-designed Queen Anne has stood the test of time well, with the addition of a swimming pool to the backyard. On the market for $3,800,00, the 7,000-square-foot mansion includes a chef's kitchen with butler's pantry, 10-foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace with original mantle, a pool house with spa and sauna, and seven bedrooms. Though we know nothing of the seller's identity, those abandoned Poang chairs in the library suggest a barely post-collegiate tech tycoon.
