What Our Cheap Old House Owners Say

We are all looking forward to returning it to it’s glory!

Thank you for your site or we may have never bought this house. We are excited to be part of the cheapoldhouses family! The house was built during prohibition. The same family has owned it since then. There is a speakeasy in the basement. There are boxes of photos from the 20’s.

We cannot wait to move in and make new memories here!

When we first looked at this house, it was for sale with a Realtor. We weren’t really looking to buy a different home, but we’d driven by it for years and I even made the comment to @beerittany along time ago that it was the only house I’d give up our current home for.

Brittany called me one day this past summer and said “that house is for sale, the one we always talk about when driving by!”

So, we decided to look at it, just for fun, just to see what it was like. It needed so much work and we weren’t in the right head space yet to make the decision to shift gears to a different house.

THEN @cheapoldhouses , who I follow incessantly, posted it on their page! We were sure it would be scooped up by someone. Shortly there after, it went off the market and we kind of forgot about it.

A couple months later, Brittany calls me again, “that house is for sale by owner now!”

We talked it over for a few days and decided that if we could make it happen, it would be the best choice for our family. It would be a smaller project than the 6000sqft, five apartment, conversion to a single family home project, we were in the beginning-ish phase of. Plus it came with 20 acres!

After much turmoil during the buying process, we finally closed and made it ours. We cannot wait to move in and make new memories here.

Hi, i am Elizabeth Finkelstein

Born in an 1850s Greek Revival home that was lovingly restored by her parents (and having attended more country auctions than she can count), Elizabeth’s love for crown molding and decorative ironwork runs in her gene pool. After high school, she left the quiet of the countryside for the bright lights of the big city to entrench herself in New York’s great history and architecture. While there, she earned a Masters in Historic Preservation and spent years working in the field of professional preservation advocacy (and started a few geeky architecture blogs to boot!). A licensed tour guide, professor and architectural historian, Elizabeth is also Country Living Magazine‘s official real estate columnist. Through @circahouses and @cheapoldhouses, Elizabeth is proud to maintain two of the most popular Instagram feeds devoted specifically to historical homes for sale. The wildly popular, viral feed @cheapoldhouses has been featured in New York MagazineThe Financial TimesMoney Magazine, Buzzfeed and numerous other influential publications. Elizabeth and her husband Ethan fantasize simultaneously about owning a Brooklyn brownstone and buying a big, old farmhouse somewhere far, far away. In the meantime, CIRCA keeps them dreaming.
