    is that a G&G home?

    whoops, yep, it sure 'nuff is.

    well even after taxes, that would be less than 1% of your take home from the jackpot if you collected the whole pot... (which of course you're not going to do since I'm playing & have my own plans...)

    Wow! nice home. 1.5 mil is not that much considering the SoCal market. It is not for everybody though. You must love G&G style and be willing to not make any major modifications. I don't think the City would allow it, being it declared a landmark.

    Sorry if i had to win power ball i would not want to live in SoCal with all the congestion. Noooooo. You can always create your own G&G house for that money.
    cheers

    I'm with Mohammad...$1.5M sounds pretty reasonable for that neighborhood, and it looks like all the restoration work has already been done.

    Maybe there's is a carriage house or something similar on the property? Or you could always put up a Tuff Shed. I'm sure the Neighborhood Commission wouldn't have a problem with that.

    I have to agree on the location - certainly not my first choice. Maybe it can be duplicated (with some modifications for modern conveniences, lifestyle and a shop) here in Idaho.

    Paul - Silverton might be nice too, but the winters would be brutal! I will be visiting there for the first time next year.
