Who's Afraid of a Cheap Old House?

Cheap Old Houses, the social media account with nearly three million followers, including A-list celebrities, inspired this new series.

Led by historic preservationist Elizabeth Finkelstein and her husband Ethan Finkelstein, a budget-conscious historic build expert, the series will appeal to bargain hunters who dream of owning a classic home affordably priced at under $150,000 with features like antique fireplaces, original wood floors, leaded glass windows, vintage appliances and inviting front porches.

During the eight-episode season, the Finkelsteins will take potential buyers on tours of two listings - from traditional styles such as Colonial Revival, Craftsman, Tudor and Queen Anne to out-of-the-box ones like a church and a firehouse - that are brimming with history and unique architecture.

Ethan and Elizabeth will guide hopeful homebuyers through the emotional highs and lows of not only purchasing but also preserving real estate steals.

Once the buyers choose their ideal project, the Finkelsteins, along with interior designer Jennifer Salvemini and architectural designer Scott Reed, will help them overhaul the forgotten places into beautifully restored gems that feature contemporary elements.

The series will kick off in Whitehall, New York, where the Finkelsteins travel in their classic truck, Old Blue, to meet partners Bill and Joe, scenic artists who currently own a centuries-old home but wish to transform a unique building into their new dwelling.

Ethan and Elizabeth will show them a former fraternal meeting hall in Italianate style with stunning arched windows and exposed brick and a firehouse with intact metal tin ceilings and walls - both built in the 1800s.

Anzél in die Boland 4

Anzél Stofberg-Rabie and her team are back for another season of Anzél in die Boland.

This season, Anzél will serve special wines, picturesque landscapes, adventurous activities – and heartwarming stories.

She visits Fuselage Wines where she flies an airplane with Protea pilot Alewyn Burger.

Anzél and the team also visit Boschendal, the second oldest wine estate in the Winelands, where they learn more about regenerative farming and stay at the new tourist attraction Camp Canoe.

There is also a visit to Doolhof outside Wellington.

Anzél flies by helicopter to this beautiful wine estate, just below the Bainskloof Pass, where they taste delicious wines, enjoy great food and ride electric bikes.

She also spends time with Karen Zoid, whose wine Sy Raas is made at Doolhof.

Anzél also pays a visit to Groote Post along the West Coast, Benguela Cove outside Hermanus, Meerlust outside Stellenbosch and GlenWood Vineyards in Franschhoek.

The season starts on a high at Fuselage wines, where Anzél flies with Protea pilot Alewyn Burger, cooks with Hennie van Loggerenberg and tastes Danie Morkel's prestigious wines.
