What's your offer?

Do you think perhaps someone 'overbuilt'?

There are so many people unable to keep their homes due to the downturn of the economy. This is an example, but while most of us do not live in homes as large as this, loss is loss, no matter how you look at it.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Does it have any bricks in it, or is it all wood?

@Curly: I have no idea, Curly, but probably a mixture of cement blocks and wood framing.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Well...I thought that this house would be lovely for your enlarged family to spend vacations OR make it a pension house and invite all your closer friends as guests! (But...they have to clean and cook all by themselves...)

29 Aug 2011 9:27am

@Japanalia: More than the cleaning and cooking, would be the tremendous expenses of taxes, heating & cooling!

Mhelene from Paris, France

A splendid view on this house . really they seem to have built on the sides and on the top ...but now we can imagine why it is on sale !

29 Aug 2011 9:58am

@Mhelene: Yes, simply too big and too expensive to take care of.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

It definitely looks like someone's goals outstripped their budget! It would be interesting to know what it actually sold for....if it has! Well seen and captured Judy! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: Thanks, Eric ... not sure if I would be able to find it on a realtor's listing.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Overbuilt, overpriced, even the small, modest places are priced ridiculously - even in the recession it persists. It is amazing what greed and lack of restraints can do to a state like Florida.

@Viewfinder: You are so right, Glenn. We downsized ten years ago and wonder just where we'd be now if we hadn't. ... Our church's food pantry can barely keep up with the needs of our local people who are in trouble.

Welcome to California!

@Denny Jump Photo: Right!

Jim from Fort Worth, United States

Just a bit large. :-) Still I'd take it if it were storm proof. Nice shot.

29 Aug 2011 2:48pm

@Jim: With all that glass, I doubt it is storm-proofed.

Sandy Weston from Maine, United States

LOL....Not for our size family! 8 of us and one with their family....looks great to me ;) But pricey I'm sure ;)

29 Aug 2011 9:14pm

@Sandy Weston: Pricey, high-high taxes, and obviously more than the owner could handle, I fear.

Ralph Jones from Detroit, Afghanistan

What's the price tag on that puppy?

29 Aug 2011 11:38pm

@Ralph Jones: I really don't know, Ralph ... are you interested? if so, I'll try to find out. ;D

Dokmateo from Spain

Wow what a beautiful place to live in...such a mansion! Why not if I am a billionaire! =))

29 Aug 2011 11:40pm

@Dokmateo: You're right ... as a billionaire, you could afford it! ;D

WOW! Must be expensive on the water and how big it is! Great capture Judy!!! Storm Proof???

30 Aug 2011 1:29am

@Wild Mustang Photography: Probably NOT "storm proof" and enormously expensive to cool and heat, but it surely is in a pretty place.

Jen from Alpharetta, United States

That would probably house alot of families!!!

When this house come the people, the new owners, and it will look like a living...

franz from Baden, Austria

wow, here "my home is my castle" certainly applies! how sad one must be to lose a place like this ...

31 Aug 2011 3:31pm

@franz: Just too big, I expect, for their pocketbook.
