Eye Candy: Best Old House NeighborhoodsBy Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows
Grab a beverage of your choice and set aside some time to ogle the seemingly endless photos from This Old House’s “Best Old House Neighborhoods.” Whatever your taste, there’s sure to be something you’ll love. And whether you’re shopping for a home, remodeling a home, or just considering some exterior paint, these photos are almost certain to contain some inspiration.
The houses are sorted and presented in a number of ways. You can view Bargains, Fixer-Uppers, Cottages & Bungalows or Victorians. Or you can see houses in areas that are great for first-time buyers, families with kids, food lovers, single women buyers, small business owners or more. Or you can dig through houses sorted by geographic region.
This Old House says:
Unique, tight-knit neighborhoods are precisely what we looked for in selecting the winners of our second annual Best Places to Buy an Old House contest—places that might not be on your radar but deserve to be. Like last year, we relied on our good friends at PreservationDirectory.com to help us contact thousands of neighborhood groups, real estate agents, and preservation societies to get their takes on the best places to track down, fix up, and fall head of heels for older homes.
