The Cumbrian properties - Allan Bank, on the edge of Grasmere, and Wray Castle on the shores of Lake Windermere - were chosen to highlight the changes taking place at both properties, said the trust.
Allan Bank, a Georgian villa that was home to poet William Wordsworth, was gutted by fire in 2011 and repairs are ongoing. The fire prompted the trust to carry out restoration and open the property to the public.
Wray Castle, a mock Gothic pile with informal grounds, is also undergoing restoration. Like Allan Bank, the trust wants to profit from interest in the ongoing repairs and seeing the properties "come to life".
A spokeswoman said of Allan Bank: "We felt this was a good time to include the property on our pages so people can follow the restoration and be part of the journey. We hope that it will inspire repeat visits from locals keen to follow the progress."
She said the gardens are also being restored to include a "viewing tunnel", which Wordsworth is thought to have had a hand in creating.
