A Couple Bought This Mansion For $1 And Turned It Into A $2.4 Million Estate


In 2006, George and Nancy Corbett purchased an abandoned home in Palmetto, Florida, for just one dollar — one dollar. As if buying a home for a dollar isn’t rare enough, they also had the home ferried along the water until it was planted in Ruskin, Florida. The home now sits in a secluded hideaway and overlooks a pristine 12,000-acre aquatic sanctuary with 20 miles of protected waterfront. George and Nancy spent $1.9 million to fix up this old historic home, and it took more than seven years to complete.

Take a look at this astounding transformation and watch the video at the end to see the full home tour.
