Salvaged Sister - Amelia Island, Florida

The elegant Egmont Hotel, built in 1878, once stood on this site on Amelia Island, a popular vacation spot for wealthy Northerners during the Industrial Age. When President Ulysses S. Grant arrived at the Egmont in 1880, the hotel staff spelled out the president's name in the windows with 400 camellias. The luxurious hotel was torn down around the turn of the century, but materials salvaged from it were used to build four homes on the property. Among them was this airy Victorian. Who knows? Perhaps Grant himself paced this sister home's salvaged heart pine floors or soaked in one of the two claw-foot tubs.

Get it for $695,000.
