This is the best I can do, but if you ring the doorbell of this house in about 15 years, I'll answer:

Ummmm, that depends on what people consider "best looking." I've seen nice ones in every city I've ever visited.

You did a nice job representing Cathedral Hill/Summit there. In fact, St. Paul is littered with neighborhoods with some very large, stately houses. I don't know what the technical definition of mansion is, but if you go up and down Edgecumbe Road, or in certain parts of Highland or even Como, you can find some pretty big houses.

I have this hairbrained theory that part of the reason that the population density in St. Paul is so much lower than in Minneapolis is because there are so many big houses on huge lawns. Although, Washburn-Fair Oaks in Minne has its share of mansions, as does Kenwood, near Minnehaha Falls and pretty much any neighborhood adjacent to the Chain-of-Lakes.
