You know real estate is fucked up in this country when someone won't buy that house. I mean, if I was a ballin ass baller, and wanted to hole up in Jersey, I'd plunk down the cash in a heartbeat.
Thanks - 45 agents showed up today so I'm hoping I can buck the trend and get over asking. But maybe I should have put "ballin ass baller" on the application form?
Showed this photo to a girl and she fucking LOVED it. So thanks lefty, you are a real American hero.
The house or the cat? Abyssinian if she's looking.
Douglas, I'd just like to echo what others have said about taking your time to furnish it. You'll find furniture you like in due time, but IMHO all that space is fine as it is, once you've done it up to your liking.
The one thing I would recommend (if you plan to stay there for years) is to refurbish the wood. I never did as I just didn't have time. I have a neighbour with a similar house and he hired two guys who spent 8 months oiling and rubbing the wood to raise the grain of the chestnut. His walls glow. But it's a real labour of love so prepare to spend the next few years doing nothing but.
On the plus side you can get out of a lot of social functions with the excuse, "Sorry fellows, but I need to stay home and polish my wood."
