Don't you just HATE finding your dream house...

at the WRONG time!!! AAAARRRGGHHH!!!! I found the house and land that I absolutely LOVE, in a GREAT location, but it's out of my stinking price range at this time. I'm sure I could afford it in about 5 years, but it's on the market NOW. Dammit!!!!!

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

i was going to ask the same question... that and does it have a basement or is it just built on a slab foundation... central air and vac or not...

Up in MA something like that would be around $800,000 with the amount of land seen in the pic near worcester...to over a million mill + 1/2 if it were closer to boston/needham/stowe area..

REMBER THOSE WHO ARE NO LONGER WITH US AND KEEP THEM IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOUR HEARTS.

Housing in Ga is cheap. Ive been looking there. One of my coworkers just bought a huge house in Bainbridge for just over 240k. I think its close to 3k sq ft.

That's a sweet house CBR... I understand your love for it... but being from michigan... no basement is a clincher against the house... I have to have a basement.

don't forget a garage both garage and basement are the quenessential man space which is important to me because i have much man paraphenalia such as a bike, tools, racing posters, various souvenirs from race spectating, pooltable, etc. you can always tell a badly whipped man when his wife not only has the entire house decorated but has a bunch of her girlie junk in the basement and garage.

True! And I highly prefer attached garages... when I'm doing projects I must go in & out of my garage a hundred times. Sometimes wearing just boxers, t-shirt, and slippers.... that wouldn't be much fun if I had to walk to the garage thru the snow!

Ditto. An attached garage is a MUST. Right now, I can live without a basement, but would HATE to live without a garage.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!
