5 Mansions for Under a Million
Stately estate: This elegant, gabled mansion was built in 1996. It has 7,144 square feet of living space, including five large bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Upscale features include a home office with a fireplace, a two-story foyer with a gallery, and a heated, saltwater pool.
One of several private residences built on a former game preserve, this parklike estate set on 4.5 acres is close to New Haven, and Yale University.
Old-world elegance: This French Empire-style mansion with an elegant portico was built in 1859—and has been impressively maintained.
The original features in immaculate condition include intricate cut glass, detailed woodwork, and bay windows with seats.
Known as one of the most prominent homes on High Street in Peoria, and nestled within the High Wine District neighborhood, this 9,000-square-foot mansion is divided into six living units, each with one or two bedrooms. Monthly income from the rentals could help cover the mortgage, and then some.
There are numerous fireplaces throughout, but a new central HVAC system keeps residents warm and cool.
Many of Peoria’s shops, restaurants, and hospitals are just a quick stroll away.
Luxurious lake house: Located upstate, just north of Spokane, this lakeside retreat comes with 75 feet of sandy waterfront, a private dock, and three levels of decks overlooking the lake.
The Mediterranean-style mansion measures 7,493 square feet and offers seven en suite bedrooms. Six of the baths have jetted tubs.
Plenty of windows and skylights illuminate every room of this 1993-built abode, which once was, and could still be, a short-term vacation rental.
Ideal for a very large family vacation or for year-round living, it’s located in the well-rated Newport School District.
Terrific in Texas: All of this elegance for just a smidge under a million? What right-minded Texan could resist? The moment buyers step through the leaded-glass double doors and into the grand entrance with the sweeping spiral staircase, they’ll be sold.
Other major selling points include five bedrooms and six baths, plus a paneled office, a living room with a wet bar, a generous kitchen with a walk-in pantry, a breakfast nook, and a massive primary suite. All that is contained within 7,268 square feet of living space.
Outdoors there’s a pool and spa, plus lush lawns, immaculate landscaping, a three-car garage, and a gated motor court.
Fortified against foul weather, the home comes with a generator. Bonus: The home has never been flooded.
Fit for a Tulsa king: In a community full of luxurious homes, this six-bedroom, eight-bath, 7,990-square-foot home stands out with its spacious rooms, high-quality hardwood and marble, and polished-brass fixtures and finishes.
Luxe amenities include two offices, a media/game room, a hobby room, and two laundry rooms (one upstairs, one downstairs). The open kitchen boasts one of the most beautiful islands we’ve ever seen, with two sinks. Oh, the entertaining you could do!
The gated and guarded neighborhood itself is quite the draw, with its park and two stocked ponds for catch-and-release fishing.
