The Skinny: Neighboring Minnesota might be the "Land of a Thousand Lakes," but Wisconsin has its fair share, and plenty of historic lake houses. Described in the brokerbabble as a "classic estate rooted in the history of lumber/coal barons who built summer homes in Wisconsin," Wildwood, as this mansion is known, sits on five wooded acres, with an in-ground swimming pool, tennis court, playhouse, and private dock. The 15-room house, completed in 1910, has many features inspired by baronial English country homes, like a fireplace nook, wood paneling, and polished ceiling beams. The kitchen, which had previously been updated, is in need of further attention, but fun features like a sauna, billiard room, and game room help to justify the $2.85M price tag.
