Coming in at an estimated 10,000 square feet, this seven-bed, five-and-a-half-bath home in Hillsborough was built even before the tony hamlet was a town (it incorporated in 1910). The opulent 1896 home at 2260 Forest View Avenue lands back on the market for a cool $13,888,000.

While this place could use a decent refresh, as evidenced by some of its dated qualities (e.g., the kitchen and the interior paint jobs), its era designs are a breath of fresh air in these remodel-frantic times—antique oak floors, a dining room with a chandelier and fireplace, library, stunning foyer, sweeping staircase, leaded glass windows, and more.

“There are several other bedrooms that are clearly decorated for children and the outdoor space is kid-friendly as well,” notes SFGate. “Not only is there a large pool behind the home, there’s also a separate play area with an amazingly adorable playhouse, a swing set and basketball hoop.”

It also has a pool. Naturally.
