This Historic Mansion in Alton Has One Room That Is Entirely Pink [PHOTOS]


This mansion has it all, from beautiful gardens to custom cabinetry to a third floor game room with a pool table and a built-in bar. It also has something we’ve never seen before: One room that is colored almost entirely millennial pink — from the walls to the rug to the furniture. (Don’t worry, the pink room is somehow not even tacky, but stylish.)

Construction on this massive mansion started in 1901 and didn’t end until 1903. It was designed and built by architect Lucas Pheiffenberger, who also did several other houses in the area that was then called “Millionaire’s Row.” Now the neighborhood is called the Middleton Historic District, and it is famous for its variety of gorgeous, historic architecture.

The grounds outside the home are a mere half acre, but they’re packed with goodies like a saltwater pool, a hot tub and a garden maze.

Inside, there are five bedrooms and fifteen rooms total that add up to 6,000 square feet of living space spread across three floors. Updates to this house are tasteful but subtle, allowing the beautiful details from the millwork, wainscotting and molding to shine.
