Price: $2,100,000

Built in 1880 by immigrant glass manufacturer Alexander King, this Second Empire-style towered manse is located in the Highland Park neighborhood of Pittsburgh. After years of neglect left the house with a spray painted interior, garish track lighting, and water damage, Frank and Maura Brown purchased the property from the city of Pittsburgh for $150,000 and set about restoring it. Seventeen years later, the eight-bedroom, 4.5-bath mansion has reclaimed its original glory and returned to market for $2,100,000. For that price, buyers will receive the impeccably refurbished house, cobblestone driveway, and 1.8 treed acres.
