In 2010, this early 1900s Uptown home sold to a local artist for $555,000, and after a pretty serious overhaul, it just hit the market, asking $1,200,000. No stranger to renovations (this home was her eighth "work of art"), walls were busted down, cathedral ceilings appeared after ditching the attic space in some parts of the house, and a wall of steel and glass was built in the great room. The three-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath Joseph Street spread is 2,560-square feet with a 365-square foot guest house located across the courtyard. Perks: everything looks shiny and new, marble countertops, a swanky master bathroom, alarm system, and an open living and dining room floor plan.
