by Elizabeth Finkelstein
Many, many thanks to Joe for sending me these two absolutely stunning homes for sale in Cambria, WI, which are for sale for a song! Joe actually used to own the house at 124 Mary Street, and he did so much research into it that he even up writing a Wikipedia entry on the architect, David R. Jones, who designed many homes in Cambria.
The homes are across the street from one another. Someone please snatch these beauties up!
