House of the Day: Plymouth Home Rocks at Reduced Price

We did a double-take when we saw the price of this Plymouth home, thinking it was in Plymouth Mass., where it would be a steal for $1,999,000. Alas, the difference 1,200 miles make. Located in Plymouth, Minn., this home's magnificence isn't diminished, but its price certainly is.

With a recent price drop from $2,295,000, and listed by Wade Hanson, a candidate on the last "Apprentice" who was featured in this post by our pal Sheree R. Curry, this 11,717-square-foot Mediterranean-inspired home sits tucked away at the end of a long driveway in a neighborhood of very unassuming homes.

As the owners noted, "The Joneses had to keep up with us, not us with the Joneses."
