Open Houses of the Week: June 16-17


There's nothing quite like the lure of an open house sign. Granted, you might not be in the neighborhood (or tax bracket) for many of these outstanding properties, but there's still plenty to admire -- even from the comfort of your swivel chair.

From coast to coast -- and everything in-between -- we lay down the welcome mat at some of the most enticing open houses in the nation.

Honolulu


Open house: Sun., June 17
Price: $2.2 million

Plus, it's located in Honolulu, steps from the ocean and close to shopping and theaters. The home features three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Austin, Texas


Open house: Sat., June 16
Price: $1.255 million
Property details: This truly exceptional Austin mansion is more California-luxe than down-home Texan, but we're not complaining!
