Terrific 1920s Tudor in Tip-Top Shape Is Week’s Most Popular Home


A museum-quality Tudor with a built-in pipe organ made beautiful music this week on realtor.com®. The Ohio home featuring original European decor and hand-carved woodwork everywhere is this week’s most popular home.

The home is listed for $2.4 million, but listing agent Lisa Deuschle told us she doesn’t expect a quick sale. “It’s going to be someone who really appreciates the quality of the home and wants to be part of the history,” she says. Judging from the clicks we’ve seen, many already do appreciate the place.

This week’s runner-up is an unfinished Georgia castle with a recent price reduction. Set on 242 acres, it offers a number of possibilities for a future monarch. Is that you?

Other homes causing you to click this week included an amazing ’70s-era time capsule in California, a cool Mid-Century Modern in the unlikely location of Alabama, and, strangely enough, yet another home with a massive pipe organ, also located in Alabama.

Whether you can play the pipes or not, there’s something for everyone in this week’s most popular properties.

10. 2249 Tyler Rd, Hoover, AL

Price: $395,000 Why it’s here: The custom-built four-bedroom home offers one very out-of-the-ordinary pipe organ. The ginormous musical instrument takes up one huge wall in the living room. If you want your house to sound like an old-timey pizzeria, or maybe a church, we’ve found just the place. The home also offers a gourmet kitchen and “gigantic” dining room. Sounds like sweet music to our ears!

Hoover, AL



9. 2571 Wallingford Dr, Beverly Hills, CA

Price: $135,000,000 Why it’s here: Last week, the Wallingford Estate splashed onto the market as the most expensive new listing. This week, the massive mansion with eye-popping amenities continues to attract attention. The 38,000-square-foot spread features a 5,000-square-foot penthouse suite, an indoor sport court with a glassed-in viewing gallery, and the “biggest zero-edge pool in Beverly Hills.”

8.1231 La Mirada Dr, Salinas, CA

Price: $619,000 Why it’s here: While the price might be present-day, the interior of this home is a step back in time. Built in 1970, the place looks as if it hasn’t been touched since the Me decade. For retro aficionados, there’s a mustard-yellow kitchen, an Army green bath, and plenty of wall-to-wall carpeting. Along with formal living and dining room, there’s a breakfast nook, a family room with a fireplace and sliders to the outdoors, plus a substantial backyard.

Salinas, CA



7. 270 Falling Star Rd, Bozeman, MT

Price: $2,184,000 Why it’s here: Designed by local architecture firm Prugh and Lenon, this is one lavish mountain retreat. Complete with ski-in, ski-out access directly from the property, the contemporary space features a floating staircase, a two-story great room, an open kitchen and dining area, and a wine room. The 5.2-acre property also includes its very own zip line, but we recommend using that feature before retiring to the wine room.

Bozeman, MT



6. Cerro Gordo, Lone Pine, CA

Price: $925,000 Why it’s here: The scary cool ghost town and abandoned mining operation topped our most popular list last week, and it’s still receiving plenty of attention. The property comes with 300 acres and mining claims, along with multiple buildings, including a hotel, bunkhouse, bar, a cemetery, and “substantial numbers of reported hauntings,” according to listing agent Jake Rasmuson. Go ahead, be afraid. 

Lone Pine, CA



5. 2511 Wildwood Dr, Montgomery, AL 

Price: $449,900 Why it’s here: Alabama, meet California? Built in 1965, the wood-and-glass structure is “one of the city’s purest examples of Mid-Century Modern style.” The interior includes an entire back wall of glass, a glass pyramid roof over the breakfast room, a master suite with spa bath, an open floor plan, and wood-plank ceilings.

Montgomery, AL



4. 696 Lenape Ln, Buck Hill Falls, PA

Price: $65,000 Why it’s here: This charming cottage is an absolute steal. For the price, it’s an ideal second home for a vacation getaway. The rustic retreat offers three beds, two baths, original hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and stone fireplace, plus a sleeping porch, a covered deck, and a modern kitchen. The adorable abode is also within walking distance to the local community pool, tennis courts, and hiking trails.

Buck Hill Falls, PA



3. 4609 Beach Rd, Medina, OH

Price: $1,370,000 Why it’s here: Feel like you’re on vacation every day at this resort-like property. Set on over 14 acres, this updated Colonial offers an updated kitchen, refinished hardwood floors, and a cozy great room with fireplace. The outdoor space boasts a private beach, dock, plus a pool and hot tub with a waterfall. The home is designed for entertaining, boasting an outdoor kitchen, fireplace and firepit, and a multilevel patio overlooking the pond.

Medina, OH



2. 33300 Highway 157, Menlo, GA

Price: $999,999 Why it’s here: Hear ye, hear ye, here’s a project. The unfinished castle requires a buyer unafraid of a regal renovation. It was originally built in 2006, and only about one-third of this royal residence is finished. The listing suggests that the property could someday be a resort, second home development, or a golf club.

Menlo, GA



1. 2721 N State Route 53 County Rd, Tiffin, OH

Price: $2,400,000 Why it’s here: Built in the 1920s by George Kalbfleisch, this first-class restored Tudor is on the open market for the first time. The home’s current owners retained the original decor from the time it was built, including hand-carved reliefs from a French chateau, bronze and Tiffany chandeliers, and Dresden light fixtures, with many of the pieces hand-picked in Europe by the original owner.

Even the refrigerator and baths are original to the house. The music room features a rare, built-in Skinner organ with ceiling panels designed as speakers and pipes in the walls. The 9,825-square-foot interior is set on 33 acres and includes a 1,100-square-foot guesthouse. “It really is like walking back in time when you walk into the home,” says listing agent Lisa Deuschle. “It’s beyond incredible.”

Tiffin, OH
