Yes, You DO Deserve to Live in a Castle on 150 Acres!

by Elizabeth Finkelstein I was completely blown away when this incredible listing landed on CIRCA! Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1971, Redstone Castle is a turn-of-the-century jewel on 150 acres completed in 1902 for industrialist and coal magnate John Cleveland Osgood. At the time, Osgood rubbed elbows with the likes of John D. Rockefeller, J. Pierpont Morgan and Teddy Roosevelt (who all spent time at the estate). In 2006, the property was used in the filming of the Hollywood movie The Prestige.   It’s up for auction with a reserve of $2,000,000. I’ll be playing the lottery for this one!

It’s a fantastic Tudor-style home with some very cool Art Deco details thrown into the mix. The ceilings, the staircase, the leaded windows—The whole thing is an absolute

There’s Some Pretty Insane Woodwork Inside This Illinois Home

Whether or not you’re a fan of the “more is more” approach the Victorians took to outfitting their homes, you’ll still be awestruck with the interior of this massive home for sale in Rock Island, Illinois. It appears to have retained pretty much all of its original woodwork, and let me tell ya’—there’s a LOT of it! This beauty is on the market for $205,700, and that would pretty afford you a semi-large closet in my town. Which is to say: SOMEONE PLEASE SNATCH UP THIS
