This Art Deco House is an Incredible Time Capsule

by Elizabeth Finkelstein

A little bit of Miami Beach is alive and kicking in Baltimore, Maryland, where this jawdropper of an Art Deco house is for sale. I’m a total sucker for anything mint green, so I couldn’t help showing it a little love here on CIRCA. Besides, there are PLASTIC PINK FLAMINGOS. Sign me up!
(Hey, locals: There’s an open house this Saturday, May 20th from 11am-2pm!)

$25,000 Will Buy You the Fixer-Upper of a Lifetime in Saginaw, MI

by Elizabeth Finkelstein

I’ve had my eye on this house for a while, so I was thrilled when a CIRCA fan (thanks, Laurie!) sent over this listing for one of Saginaw’s most historically-significant homes, now complete with lots of interior photos. The image of a piano sitting in an abandoned room and surrounded by peeling wallpaper would spark a thrill in most lovers of old homes, myself included. This one’s got bones—won’t someone please save it!?

by Elizabeth Finkelstein

I have a message for all the budding artists and old house professionals out there: You CAN make a living doing what you’re passionate about, while at the same time doing GOOD FOR THE PLANET. I’ve always been a complete old house fanatic, but never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I would be in a position to share beautiful fixer-uppers badly in need of saving with the entire world. And to see them wind up in the hands of people whose only motive is to love and restore them? Well, I couldn’t ask for more.
If you haven’t yet seen my latest for Country Living Magazine, head on over there to join the more than 37,000 people who have shared this incredible South Carolina home, on the market for just $89,900 and located within a beautiful historic district in the city of Darlington. The piece was also picked up in numerous other publications, including Cosmopolitan and House Beautiful. According to the realtor, the phones have been ringing off the hook. Time to get this beauty SAVED!
I’ve included a few photos below just as a tease—You’ll get the complete package over at Country Living.

Special thanks to Coldwell Banker McMillan and Associates for allowing me to write about this gorgeous home!

Ah, that sweet, old fashioned charm of yesteryear. No where is it more apparent than in the beautiful old homes found throughout the American South. Join Meghan as she shares her favorite Southern real estate finds.
Nestled in the Southern town of Mobile, Alabama, on a charmingly historic street in the Oakleigh Historical District, this early 1900s bungalow is a lovely showcase of turn-of-the-century quality construction.
