Take a look at the Google street view, there's was a "bridge" at one point.
It's effin glorious.

It's like your own personal slice of Juarez, only with 45% less cartels!

This house is why I follow this thread. $900k for that crack den?

I can't stop thinking about that front pool. Can't you just imagine Pablo and friends/family partying in that pool (which is basically in the driveway) as cars come and go down the street...

When you want to put in a pool, but don't ever want to see it from the house...

im not a houstonite so forgive me for a dumb question, but is that REALLY what 900k gets you in the heights?

Hell no. That dirt may be worth a half of that...but more likely 1/3. Its not the best part of the heights.

I get testing the waters and all that, but isn't this one doomed to failure unless they find a huge sucker to go in with cash? Even if someone wanted that giant turd it's not like it would ever come close to appraising.

Another strange one...standard, unassuming red brick suburban two-story on the outside; medieval/renaissance fair fantasy on the inside. And it can be yours for just $2.285 million!

I'm not into the Medieval thing but I actually can appreciate the execution of that. Completely unassuming from the front and totally committed to the theme inside.

Obviously going to limit the pool of buyers but that is interesting weird rather than scary weird like the front-pool-drug-den.

Wow. That is amazing. Certainly for a niche market but you've got to appreciate the dedication to the vision.

This one left me thinking what in the seven hells instead. Seriously, where's the damn iron throne anyway? Would not buy because of that.

so an actual stunning custom home for sale:

http://www.sothebysrealty.com/eng/sales/detail/180-l-3720-4rjc2c/montanas-shelter-island-estate-rollins-mt-59931

Shelter Island Estate is once again for sale up here for a bargain price of $29,000,000. Which is actually a bargain, considering the asking a few years ago was near 80mm.

Some come to Montana for the authentic ranch experience, some come to be surrounded by like-minded people in organized luxury golf communities. You are not like those individuals. You are one of only a handful of individuals in the world who have the distinct opportunity to provide yourself, your family and your closest companions with the gift of privacy, seclusion and safety in the unequivocal King of luxury modern estates.

awesome house. terrible video though.

you'd think they could at least stage the place with some furniture. Interior pics are pretty underwhelming.

and for 30 million...I want a damn pool!

Flathead Lake might as well be a giant pool with how clear it is. And with a 22 acre island, I suppose you could put a pool in.

I will say that the interior pictures and video were pretty bad for 30 million. Would think Sotheby's would have done better work.

I think that house was on an an HGTV or some such show...America's Most Expensive Houses or something like that. If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's got a rail system by which you can park your boats in an underground garage. Pretty cool.

I remember seeing that and wondering, that's when you have too much money.

that boat garage is an awesome idea but seems like you'd be screwed if you ever wanted something bigger

This one is just past the house across the street from us. $1.1 M. Great job with the outside pics, but there's no way this will sell for that amount based on the inside. It looks like hardly anything has changed since it was built in 1988.
