(of course there is a catch)


It's haunted?

It's cursed?

It's built on top of a burial ground?
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Worse, they want to put a parking
lot where it sits.

I don't understand why it hasn't sold. The woodwork is worth a fortune, there are
people who buy places like this for a living and tear out anything of value and then have it demolished.


The new owner may be legally enjoined from buying the home for the inner guts. He may be required to keep it intact and move it. The woodwork may not be worth $250,000 + $30,000 for the house.

It's not. But it's worth 75-100K. Well worth
gutting it and tearing it down.

Hearst bought everything is a room. Furnishings,
walls, fireplaces, ceilings and floors. It was
amazing undertaking. He had a small army
of buyers all over EU, nobody knew they worked
for him. If they did he would have had to pay
terrible prices. The aristocrats of EU were in the
decline from 1880 onwards, and Hearst was at
the heights of his wealth. In the 20's he was
nearly broke and in the 30's was forced to
take over an entire floor at Macys to sell his
huge collection of antiques.

If you look at the other picture on that page, you can see that the building is L- shaped, and you just can't see the part of the building that juts out of the back from the angle that this picture was taken from.

Architectural Digest does a video tour of the private living space of the Obamas. Nice views out the windows.
