This 28 room mansion is *surprise* good ’til the last room. The entryway is all stained glass and mahogany, there are NINE fireplaces throughout, and the wood paneling was imported from Chatham Mansion’s namesake in England. The family that built it (a wealthy lumber broker, mmhmm) sold it after World War Two and it has been owned by the same family ever since. They’ve really made the place shine and we need to line up an appreciative new owner, stat.
Three floors of fabulous filled with pocket doors, fabulous wallpaper, and details that just don’t go out of style. Not with us, anyway. I’m daydreaming like crazy over this one because my ideal home is a Queen Anne with a large, fantastic turret. Maybe you, too? Check it out!

In 1881, this wonderful property was built as the home of Greenleaf Johnson Sr., a wealthy lumber broker. The 28 room house was named for a home in Chatham, England, and contains wood paneling that Johnson imported from that country. The house was passed to Johnson’s son, who sold it after World War II. In 1950 it was purchased by the family that still owns the home today.
