There Is Also a "Potting Room"

For a really quite piddly, inconsequential sum, you could be the proud owner of Katharine Hepburn's Old Saybrook oceanside estate. We hear that those daily, frigid swims helped condition her for her victorious 1936 bare-knuckle boxing match with Sixto Escobar.

Question: What's your celebrity dream home?

Answer: Knole
Secondary Answer: Knole, taken from the National Trust and the current Lord Sackville through violence if necessary.

If neither of those is to your liking, perhaps a cheaper estate with "an incredible trophy room with butternut wood paneling and automated recorded sounds of animals in the wild that is light activated"?

Castle Howard, I guess.

I know that's kind of a boring choice.

Dandyliongirl

@Lucienne Castle Howard forever! Though I would also take Blenheim Palace without much grumbling: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blenheim_Palace

@Dandyliongirl Not gonna lie, when I visited Blenheim Palace I definitely starting hatching a plan to get the Duke of Marlborough to marry me.

@Dandyliongirl As long as all the furniture comes with it.

I could totally buy a few square feet of that estate.

LacunaKale

I'd rather go all Brando and have a private island. I could buy a tiara and command all the lizards to obey me. http://www.privateislandsonline.com/

Finca Vigia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finca_Vig%C3%ADa
Hemingway's House in Cuba. Way more manageable to keep up, plus full of books!

SuperGogo

Do you think if I send them an email to let them know they meant to say complement not compliment in the Old Saybrook estate listing, they would knock 29.9 mil off the price for me?

oh well never mind

@SuperGogo Give it a go! And invite us all to a party there if it works as hope for editors everywhere.

There have to be tons of Seven Sisters grads on the hairpin, right? We can all just chip in like fifteen bucks and keep it in the family. Make it a refuge for unemployed English majors or something.

For some of us, every room is a potting room.

Daisy Razor

I want the Spelling estate, solely for the gift wrapping room.

Meanwhile, a historic inn in Chilmark, MA sold at auction for just $2.4 million, which is actually a pretty incredible deal. I hope my sister picked up some good stuff at the estate sale.

Everybody's dream house is so huge. Space is nice and everything but there's so much upkeep. I prefer location and a view.

The Saybrook house does have a nice kitchen, though.

highfivesforall

@Reginal T. Squirge Are you attempting to win over the tiny house crowd here?

Reginal T. Squirge

Not even. Those tiny houses are usually all the way out on Walden Pond or some shit. At least that one tiny apartment was in the middle of the city.

Bootsandcats

@Reginal T. Squirge Pablo Neruda house in Santiago. It's normal house sized and built like a sailing ship. It has a secret passage that leads from the dining room to the bedroom - for escaping from guests - with a secret passage alcove with an armchair, a bookcase, and a tiny dry bar.

Also the dining room is covered with paintings from the great modernist artists - all commissioned to paint watermelons.

And it's in a city that is very like San Francisco, but with less human feces.

highfivesforall

Calendar house! Very glad to know that this is a thing.

fondue with cheddar

@highfivesforall Ooh, me too!

Is this is where I mention that my niece was born on 9/8/07 at 5:43? There a missing six, but there were six family members at the hospital when she was born, so there's that.

Lemonnier

Ugh, that house is suffering from Rich People With No Taste Syndrome.

Pickled floors. Shudder.

People and negotiators are so careful nowadays especially if it is a public content and matter. There is no surprise is that; a published material is so tightly concerned with the mortgage business party. Because if there are flaws in the settlement, that means public will make them pay. - toko bunga Surabaya
