House Crush: Saxton Hall, Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY

I have a house crush. And it’s serious. As someone who’s been able to craft a career around old house eye candy, I can assure you that I’ve seen my fair share of beautiful homes. But every once in a while a house comes along that is so special that it deserves its own CIRCA Magazine post. Saxton Hall, along the lovely banks of the Hudson River (just 50 miles from NYC!) is one such place. Best part? It’s for sale on CIRCA!   Having grown up in a Greek Revival house myself, I have a soft spot for the streamlined elegance of this particular style. Were that not the case, it still wouldn’t take longer than five seconds of staring at the listing photos of this c. 1830 beauty to understand why I NEED THIS

10 Historic Stone Houses for Sale

A quaint stone cottage, it’s a quintessential, cozy “winter house,” complete with fireplaces in nearly every room, interior stone walls, and rustic wood beam ceilings. With no plans to move to the English countryside (sadly), I was delighted to find these ten amazing stone houses for sale across the U.S. (Click on the top photo of each listing to be taken to the listing site).

Dream Home: The Historic Mill House in Starksboro, VT

Fact: I’m a total real estate junkie. If we get down to brass tacks, I started CIRCA Houses to justify the fact that I waste hours every day falling in love with properties I’ll never have. As my husband can attest, I’ve been known to crawl into bed with the computer, drifting off into dreamland with visions of fixer-uppers dancing in my head. But it wasn’t until last week that a real estate video actually SANG me to sleep like a lullaby. The culprit? The Mill House in Starksboro,
