With the holiday season upon us, I’ve been fixated on old houses filled with inviting hearths and high ceilings that are perfect for hosting those holiday gatherings. Luckily, these seem to be in no short supply! Brought to you this week is a […]
by Teresa Iafolla Happy Friday, house-lovers! I have some great news for you. When I started searching for the next fixer-gem for our Friday feature, I found so many gorgeous houses I couldn’t pick just one. Instead, I decided to pull together my top three!
by Teresa Iafolla. All photos courtesy of Century 21 Today’s Friday fixer upper is a lovely, sprawling Queen Anne nested away in Macon, Missouri. Built in 1875, this Victorian beauty still has many of its original touches — including some breathtaking woodwork. Last we heard it was under contract, but in the event that this […]
by Teresa Iafolla. All photos courtesy of Keller Williams Realty and Cincinnati Historic Homes This week’s Friday fixer-upper is a one-of-a-kind find that I don’t see often—which is saying a lot, since I comb through Zillow on a daily basis! Meet the Historic Enger Mansion, one of the “Great Houses of Cincinnati.” You’re looking […]
by Teresa Iafolla. All photos courtesy of MRIS Homes September is the perfect time for new beginnings — and to scoop up your next fixer upper and give it a facelift! There always seems to be more houses on the market this time of year, and this week’s crop of charming fixers is proof of […]
by Teresa Iafolla. All photos courtesy of MRIS Homes If you’re looking for a fairytale Victorian, nestled more than an acre of verdant, Maryland greenery, today’s find will have you on the phone with your realtor before you can say “fixer-upper.” This rare Maryland gem is a circa 1880 Victorian, located near Baltimore in quiet […]
by Teresa Iafolla. All photos courtesy of Hunter Realty Group In the cozy, northeastern town of East Hampton, Connecticut sits a beautiful old mansion waiting for a new owner. Homes in this neck of the woods typically cost a small (or not so small) fortune, so for just $299,500 this is a relative steal. The […]
by Teresa Iafolla This darling Friday Fixer-Upper comes with over 156 years of history and a great story! Built in 1859, the Delap-Fyffe Farmstead was built as a wedding present from David Delap to his wife, Alli (Can you imagine a better wedding present?). True to the DIY spirit, David cut the wood for the […]
by Teresa Iafolla Hidden away in Lumber Bridge, North Carolina, this old-time beauty is just begging to be fixed up! And at only $150,000, it’s the steal you’ve been waiting for. Those gorgeous Queen Anne touches (look at that porch!) just need a little TLC to really shine. And with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, and […]

Save This Gingerbread House in Oxford, New York!
It’s been a long while since CIRCA celebrated a Fixer-Upper … so let’s get back into the swing of things in a big way, with the Sleighton School. Located in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, this is more than one house, down on its luck, in need of an ambitious owner to rescue it from old house purgatory. […]
by Amanda Davis I love old brick houses, and better yet when they’re in Virginia. That state just oozes charm! I was there just last week and its historic buildings never fail to amaze me. Today’s fixer upper is in Crockett, which is located just off I-81 and about halfway between Roanoke and Bristol. It’s […]
by Amanda Davis Summer’s in full swing, and for many of us that means heading to the beach and soaking in some sun. And for those of us who’d also love to sneak in some time fixing up a great old house, I have the best of both worlds for you today: a fixer-upper near […]
by Amanda Davis I can’t get enough of this house in Eufaula, Alabama. That facade is a true beauty! All the great historic details seem to be there, down to the wood windows and the cute porch. Don’t porches and the South work so well together? I love the sidewalk in front too – say […]
by Amanda Davis (photo by Teemu08) Today I thought we’d travel to Rockford, Illinois to dream about fixing up this Victorian Gothic beauty selling for just $32,500! Don’t you just love that woodwork at the front gable? And that tower? The home sits on a corner lot in the Haight Village Historic District, which means […]
by Amanda Davis Well, hello there! I’m back with another Friday Fixer-Upper, and this week I’ve set my sights on this little miss in Laurel, Mississippi. Isn’t she a cutie? And she’s selling for just $22,500!
by Amanda Davis I just love this brick jewel of a fixer-upper in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Located on an acre-and-a-half, this mid-19th century brick beauty is selling for $95,900 and has 5 bedrooms and over 3,500 square feet. She’s quite a gem!
by Amanda Davis I really love the charm of old hotels so I was excited to stumble across this gem in Velva, North Dakota. The Hotel Berry was built in 1906 and is now a single-family home. Some home! Whether you’re looking to check in to your very own hotel home, run a bed & […]
by Amanda Davis For this week’s fixer-upper I thought we’d travel to Galveston, Texas (for one, it’s in the 70s there right now!). How cute is this house?! I’ve never been to this coastal city, but I recently discovered my great-grandfather arrived here when he immigrated to the United States over 100 years ago. Pretty […]
by Amanda Davis Mad Men returns on Sunday! So why am I featuring a fixer-upper in Vermont, you may wonder? Fans of the show will know that one of Sterling Cooper & Partners’ top account executives is good ol’ Ken Cosgrove, native son of Burlington, Vermont. Poor Ken had a bit of a rough 1968, […]
by Amanda Davis The weather has finally decided to warm up a little, so I thought we’d stay close to CIRCA headquarters today and celebrate with a great ol’ fixer upper right here in Brooklyn. Special thanks to Magazine reader, Maggie, for sending this great find our way! This 5-bedroom, 3 ½ bath beauty […]
by Elizabeth Finkelstein This house. THIS HOUSE! It’s everything I’ve ever wanted. Reputed to date back all the way back to 1780, this eclectic historical home must have been a beauty in her heyday. Just LOOK at that turret. But wait, it gets better: The house sits on over 132 acres! And get this: It […]
by Amanda Davis I was so excited to come across this listing in the small city of Thompson, North Dakota. It’s a little bank house! I can’t say enough how much I love adaptively-reused homes like this. Finding an old building and turning it into a residence provides so much opportunity for creativity. You want […]
by Elizabeth Finkelstein I have a serious weakness for the Italianate style. This certainly stems from too many years spent living in Brooklyn, admiring the great brownstone-lined streets found all over New York (for a crash course in this style of architecture, spend a day getting lost in the beauty of Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene, […]
by Amanda Davis Happy Valentine’s Day, old house lovers! This year I’m sending flowers and chocolates to my very special Valentine down south in the wonderfully-named Glen Alpine, North Carolina. She’s eclectic and an old soul, but she could use a little cheering up these days. And just who is my Valentine? The beautiful […]
