Why save it: The house showcases Hollister's distinct architectural style, which blended elements of Queen Anne and Romanesque Revival. It retains many architectural treasures, including mahogany paneling, and a glass mosaic fireplace surround by artist Orlando Gianni, who designed tilework for Frank Lloyd Wright.
What it needs: Aside from cosmetic work, you'll need to update the plumbing, electrical and HVAC. At least 75 percent of the woodwork is salvageable.
