Looks can be deceiving -- behind this modest front is nearly 9,000 square feet of living space.

Cordelia A. Culbertson House -- Pasadena, CA

This house was the last major project jointly undertaken by Charles and Henry Greene, the brothers behind architectural firm Greene & Greene, who were famous for their Arts & Crafts style. The Culbertson House, however, goes beyond their traditional style and incorporates unique Asian and Californian Mission influences. 130 windows keep the masterpiece light and airy. Price tag: $7,500,000
