1720’s colonial stunner in Virginia

This enchanting historic home in Gloucester, Virginia dates to around 1720. It is located along the North River. It is currently listed for sale at $ 2,400,000. I really shouldn't be looking at such opulent real estate, but I just can't help myself when I come across a historic beauty like this... The home is...

A one room house that grew over the centuries

This lovely historic home in New York State originated sometime around 1750 as a one-room dwelling. Over the next couple of centuries, it was expanded, renovated, expanded and renovated again. Then it was restored. The current owner has put a great deal of time, effort and money into revitalizing this house and it is...

1909 Adirondack Style home in Arkansas

I have been completely stressing out over this website lately - it is kicking my butt! When I saw this handsome Adirondack style lodge, however, I calmed down a few notches. It's ironic how houses can do that to me - calm me down, bring me back to earth, ground me. And that's the whole reason...

Texas charmer for cheap

And that day is today! So... in...

Cork County Ireland cottage for sale

In recognition of the beloved and even controversial Irish holiday (St. Paddy's Day) I thought I would feature a few houses from the homeland. Ha, ha - yes, I am Canadian, but also Irish by ancestry. Although, my lineage to Ireland dates back further than this 200 year old home! Of course EVERONE is Irish on St....

Marcia’s delightful Minnesota house

I have a very charming house to share with you today... This beauty in Minnesota is one's of my reader's homes and it is ADORABLE! Marcia shared these pictures with me of her circa 1910 American Foursquare. She and her family bought the house in 2001 and they were told that it was an old...

An exceptional arts and craft bungalow

If you're a sucker for craftsman houses, then this one is for you. This fabulous 1923 craftsman home in Fort Collins, Colorado has a hefty price tag ($719,000) but it is in such pristine condition, I just had to give it a closer look. Located in the historic Old Town area of Fort...
