Saratoga Springs Victorian, Estate of the Day
This charming home in Saratoga Springs, New York is a big old rambling Victorian home that has had upgrades but hasn't lost all of its original details. Stained glass, carved fireplace surrounds, wainscoting and some of the most beautiful fireplace tiles I have ever seen are part of what make me love this one. The home has a third floor three-bedroom apartment, and a carriage house and the backyard includes an inground pool and hot tub. It is listed at $1.75 million but Zillow reports that it sold for less than half that ($850,000) in 2003.
