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! See the full listing over at Platinum Luxury Auctions.

Here’s a Fabulous Opportunity to Own Three Neighboring Victorian Homes at Under $70,000 Each

by Elizabeth Finkelstein

While doing some reach for a post I wrote this week for Country Living Magazine, I happenstanced upon an incredible opportunity for the right investor, or someone who just loves fixing up old houses! These three Victorian homes are all clustered together as neighbors in Stafford, Kansas, and are for sale for unbelievably low prices. The realtor “would really prefer to package these properties together under an LLC with investors. And have a preservation trust/hunting lodge/B&B with enough funds to adequately preserve and showcase these wonderful properties.” For more information, contact Clare Moore of Claremont Realty and Management at (316) 682-5803.
