New Jersey Sugar Mansion

The "super sweet" residence—which has since been used as an orphanage, a school, and a summer camp—may be used in many different capacities, or returned to its original function as a single-family home. Though in need of some TLC, the magnificent stone-and-brick structure has immense charm and potential with 18,000 square feet of living space. It presently touts numerous formal rooms that are perfect for entertaining large groups; a music room; a den; an office; two powder rooms; and a kitchen with a sizable butler's pantry, and the original ice box built into the cabinetry.
Currently on the market for $4.995 million, the house has over ten bedrooms and four bathrooms in total, and is salted with big windows, fireplaces, huge expanses of food, and terra-cotta tile flooring.
Ty Cobb's Tahoe Vacation Home
Originally built in 1938, baseball legend Ty Cobb's summer lodge—purchased after his retirement—sits on 2.25 acres and comes with a 147-foot stretch of Lake Tahoe shoreline.
Ty Cobb Home
Expanded and revamped in 1992, the home is now 2,423 square feet and boasts four bedrooms, four baths, a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and a spacious kitchen and dining area. Listed at $6.5 million, the residence—which has a "knotty pine interior"—overlooks remarkable lake, mountain, and forest views, particularly from its sprawling deck.
A portion of the property's land has been approved for conditional expansion improvements by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency in case its new owner decides to divvy up the swath, which would leave the Cobb Lodge on 1.02 acres.

Tucked within Hooker Cove, minutes from Hutchinson Island, this modern riverfront home—now up for grabs for $7.35 million—comes with a long dock that affords ample space to park several boats.
