Woodland Mansion was the hottest real estate ad in America this week


A breathtaking example of Italianate Victorian architecture is on the market in Woodland, California. Built in 1885 for two pioneer ranchers, the gorgeous classic is the most popular home this week on realtor.com®.

This historic landmark has been restored and modernized, and it’s easy to see why it has captured the imagination of architecture enthusiasts. Considered a “work of art,” the interior space features hand-painted wallpapers, multiple stained glass windows, and hand-decorated ceilings.

This week’s runner-up is an Ohio home that was downsized to seven. A sin, dollar. The single-digit price is down from the $777 the house was asking for when it topped our list in March. The historic Toledo home needs brand new, and now the seller is ready to throw in a new roof to sweeten the seven-dollar deal.

In addition to this single-digit bargain, other popular homes this week include a charming Victorian cottage in New Orleans, a neighbor from last week’s glamorous Las Vegas digs and a Maryland home with four bars.

Price: $7
Why it’s here: The seller cannot transfer this house. Instead, it’s now offered for a measly $7. It was a steep drop from the $777 price that propelled it to the top of the most popular real estate listings in March.

But the triple-digit price hasn’t attracted a buyer, so we’re now in Venti frappucino pricing territory. In addition to digging into the asking price between the couch cushions, a buyer has to come up with a renovation plan for the historic 5,330 square foot property in need of a ton of work.

And the offer has been sweetened even more: the seller is ready to replace the roof if a buyer’s offer is accepted. Listing Agent Pierre-Judy, which has renovated homes in the area, estimates $200,000 worth of work is needed. Plus, of course, the $7 for the house.

Price: $3,850,000
Why it’s here: Known as the Gable Mansion – a California Historic Landmark – the large house is “one of the last of its style, size and proportion in California”.

It was built in 1885 to Amos and Harvey Gablepioneers of Yolo County ranchers, but the mansion fell into disrepair until the early 1970s when it was brought back to life and given its status as a rightful landmark.

In the 1990s, the lavish space changed hands again and was refurbished to its stunning state by its current owners, who gave it an extra polish and added a few luxury modern features including an indoor swimming pool, a gym theater, an aquarium in the kitchen. , and a gym.

The Italianate architecture and design feels more like a museum interior than a home, with gleaming chandeliers and intricate ceiling patterns, plus copious amounts of stained glass.

Stunning ornate details have taken the internet by storm and pushed the Gable Mansion to great heights atop the most popular homes.
