Famous designer — and redesigner
It’s not often you come across a listing for which both the architect and remodeler are household names. The Samuel-Novarro house, designed by Lloyd Wright (son of Frank Lloyd Wright), is back on the market in Los Feliz Oaks, California. The $4.3 million price makes this Art Deco masterpiece a bargain, considering it was recently restored by another legend: veteran actress Diane Keaton.
Live like Lincoln
While near it’s impossible to purchase the Lincoln Memorial or Madison Square Garden, a cool $48 million could snag you a mansion designed by James Brite, architect of both of those historic spaces. This 50,000-square-foot, 29-bedroom palace built in New Jersey in 1907 comes replete with stunning 30-foot ceilings, a 45-foot-tall Aeolian player organ and luxury spa. And the 12-acre estate is only a 40-minute drive from Manhattan, if you need to commute to work to afford those mortgage payments. Credit on both items: TopTenRealEstateDeals.com
