First, when Steven Bader bought a 1839 Greek revival in Savannah, Ga., he never dreamed he would find items left behind by the original homeowners that include a priceless piece of American history. Next, the ornate architecture and one-of-a-kind art pieces throughout a Philadelphia, Penn. 1900s Victorian Tudor won over owners Russ Harris and John Casavecchia--so much so that they have restored all 7,000 square feet. Then, Margie and Jeff Yansura were always curious about West Palm Beach's "tile house," and eventually, their curiosity won them over and they bought the 3,300 square-foot Spanish revival. Finally, the 1883 Victorian home of Chuck Stava and J.D. Bartell looks like a fish out of water in Houston, but that didn't stop this couple from falling in love with the steamboat-style house. While pouring a new foundation to save the sinking structure, Stava discovers a string of pearls under the house that connect back to the original homeowners.
