Location: Iron Station, N.C.
Price: $2,649,900
The Skinny: Built in 1817 for a French Huguenot family, the estate known as Ingleside is said to have been designed by Benjamin Henry Latrobe, the architect of the U.S. Capitol, though the state historic marker is quick to note "no documentation has been located to verify the claim." Now set on 75 acres, the brick mansion is impressive regardless of the true architect, with nearly 10,000 square feet, four bedrooms, five bathrooms, towering ceilings, intricate moldings, an updated kitchen, and even what appears to be a psychiatrist's home office. The sprawling grounds include a swimming pool with cabana, tennis courts, a series of chicken barns, historic smokehouse, two large barns and a potting shed. Currently listed for $2.65M for the full acreage, the property may also be divided and price reduced at the buyer's request.
