my house is smaller than yours, and prop txs almost as much! and our "view" is of the nuke towers.

okay, so house #1... I'll pass on that one, don't like the drapes.

house #2... too much grass to cut

San Fran house... like they say, location, location, location



(this is fun)

OK Els! When we win powerball - you and I are moving. Taking the pets. Rest of the family optional. LOL!

I'm sorry, but I can't help but think how much fun family holidays would be when in a house that big.

Nancy, I agree. And I am going to THIS house for a Christmas party. The couple have a daughter who has the same medical condition as my son. We belong to the same medical support group. They have graciously opened their home to host this party. Otherwise, we have to rent some place and pay a lot of money for substandard food and entertainment. They don't even ask us to bring anything. The kids have a blast, because there is a game room with a pool table and other table games and of course that great movie theater. It is a lot more fun having the party at someone's home and Heaven knows they wouldn't all fit in mine. HA!

Such grand "houses" we see (and some live in) now...
yet they pale in comparison to the "mansions" we'll live in later. (John 14:2)

Oh my goodness! That will be so much fun! And I agree, very gracious of them. It's good to see someone who passes along blessings. What a great way to begin the Holiday Season!

This family donated their property-maybe they sold it at a reduced rate-not sure to the Dept of Veterans affairs Canandaigua-Rorie Anja and I play there every day-in the summer the gardens are open to the public www.Sonnenberg.org

I want the 21 acres.I wonder if you have a large warehouse sized room to play ball in there. Im sick of rainy cold mornings . I could play inside with Lucky and not need shoes. I dont think I can afford to rent it for a night. Very nice really but Im thinking 100 plus acres and an old farm house restored. I think if I ever win power ball I ll check these places out fpr ideas.
BTW I live in 1500 sq. foot ranch on an acre.My furniture all of it would fill only one of those rooms.and still leave room.
