Secret? Call Toledo, Ohio your home turf. The 8,000+ square feet Tudor Revival (pic above) was built in the early 1900s for a licorice tycoon (imagine!)! Many of the original details endure- oak staircase, stained glass windows, a grand living room trimmed in mahogany. Special attention was even given to averting bickering among the help--there's both a maid's and a butler's pantries! Nine Bedrooms and over five baths! Ask: A mere $289,000!!

Red Alert!- Grey Poupon is on sale at Safeway- stock up!
