Live Like Victorian Royalty in Sylvania, Georgia!

Black Walnut Plantation: 800 Acres of Historical Magic!

by Leona Jaeger (photo by Lee Sandstead) If you are indeed an old house lover (as I am!), it’s probably safe to say that it’s not just the beauty and craftsmanship behind old homes that draws you in, but the history as well. There’s a bit of mystery — a curious desire to know who lived there and what it was like. I don’t know about you, but when face-to-face with a beautiful old house, questions will buzz around my head like flies at a picnic! If you want history, then you are sure to enjoy learning more about the interesting life of Black Walnut Plantation, which is listed on both the National and Virginia Register of Historic Places.

DREAM HOUSE: Where Nantucket Meets NYC Suburb

by Elizabeth Finkelstein Since CIRCA features homes all over the country, it’s rare that I’m given the opportunity to peek inside any of the beautiful old houses listed on the site. Which is sad, in a way. I’ve mentioned before that what makes old houses so wonderful is an essence that can’t be captured in photographs — it’s just a feeling you get when you walk inside.   For this reason, I feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to tour an absolutely STUNNING c. 1804 home in New City, New York — just 35 miles outside of New York City! Suburban? Not at all. I promise, once you get there, you’ll feel as if you’ve just landed on a private estate in Nantucket. This one is a BEAUTY. And it’s for sale on

Today, CIRCA brings you the story behind one of our favorite properties up for sale — Wisconsin’s Usonian Inn, a classic piece of roadside nostalgia with a direct connection to Frank Lloyd Wright in the rural haven of Spring Green. As much as we love traditional B&B’s (and trust me, we do!) there’s something wonderfully appealing about being the proprietor of a retro motel.
