Here’s a Real Estate Sampler of listings that caught my eye this week…
1. A 1740s Log Home known as Milly’s Cabin
The listing says this old house in Virginia sits on 68 acres and was named for Mildred Fletcher, who believed that “a woman should have a house of her own” and bought the cabin and surrounding land 60 years ago.
2. An Historic Neoclassical Mansion in San Antonio
This beautiful old house was built in 1907 and designed by Atlee Ayres. If the porch didn’t get my attention, the woodwork inside the front door would!
The listing says, “Situated on the most prestigious street in Monte Vista, this grand estate features many unique architectural details throughout, including gorgeous wood floors, stained glass first floor landing, formal pond with water statue, beautiful pool with gazebo, 3rd floor great room balcony w/amazing view of downtown, wine cellar, and carriage house apartment.”
3. Catherine Zeta-Jones’s Loft in the Movie High Fidelity
This three-story duplex in Chicago hasn’t changed much since it was filmed for the John Cusack movie High Fidelity in 1999. Now it’s on the market for $1.195 million.
4. Tudor in Seattle
I kinda swooned when I saw the exterior of this house. Wish the Tudor look was a little more evident in the interiors, though. The listing says, “Gracious brick Tudor awaits you in this west facing Broadmoor classic with period detail of leaded glass windows, box beam ceilings crown moldings.”
5. Gail’s Mountain Cottage in New Mexico
A reader is selling her charming home near Albuqurque. The listing says, “Natural wood siding and stone veneer, combined with a huge wooded lot with gorgeous views of South mountain, gives a true mountain feel. The Pinon Ridge neighborhood is located right off the Turquoise Trail and is minutes to ski resort and hiking trails.”
6. Greek Revival Style in New York
This house is newer than it looks. Would you guess it was built in 2001? The listing says, “A long drive leads to this classic Greek Revival style home within walking distance to Tallman State Park. Gracious entry porch is flanked by six iconic columns and overlooks the park-like setting.”
Thanks to the readers who sent me these listings. If you were going to buy a house in any of these styles, which one would it be? Do you have a favorite?
