I’ve got a fun one for you today…
Ever wanted to live in a former prison? Yeah me too. Here’s your chance!
Located in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, this old place was used as the Carbon County Prison from 1871 to 1995. It was purchased privately in 1995 and then opened as tourist attraction – which it still is today. But the jail museum is currently up for sale so it could be your personal fun house for $750,000.
The old stone prison actually has the original warden’s quarters intact with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms so you could potentially live there.
Have a look at the main cell block:
I found this vintage cottage in the mountain town of Georgetown, Colorado.
Georgetown is a historic landmark district that has been kept largely in its Victorian state. The town definitely has that Hallmark Christmas card feel about it.
In fact, our favorite singer here at House Crazy – John Denver – was so taken with the village that he actually filmed a movie in Georgetown back in 1986 called The Christmas Gift.
The price of this 1880 two-bedroom bungalow is $335,000. That may seem high for a small older home, but keep in mind that Georgetown is just a short drive from world class skiing. And look how perfect it is inside…
The house has southern exposure – which is a big selling point in these high mountain towns surrounded by towering mountain ranges.
I have a pretty one for you today.
Le Moulin du Roc is a unique hotel located in the Périgord region of France. The quaint yet luxurious compound is actually made up of three separate former mill buildings set along the River Dronne.
The mill structures date back to the year 1670!
Le Moulin Du Roc has a total of 15 guest rooms which are situated throughout the three mill buildings and connected by charming bridges, walkways and staircases.
