What a beauty! This stately, old mansion is on sale in Coldwater, Michigan, for the quite low price (relatively speaking) of $299,900. It was built in 1886, and offers 4934 square feet, five bedrooms, two full baths, a hand-made wrought iron fence, and 0.810 acres of land. The exterior is a bit too cheery for my tastes, but an owner with an eye for gloomier, more foreboding homes could spruce it up. Yet, take note of the exquisite job of interior decorating. One can appreciate the Victorian wallpaper and rugs, as well as the plethora of gorgeous antiques, and old-fashioned pieces of furniture. The clocks, candelabras, and urns are particularly charming. Adding in some more sinister objects of decoration such as weapons on display, or some grotesque artwork, or perhaps a gargoyle here or there, would really help achieve perfection.
