Yes.

Although it wouldn't look like that for very long.

It looks like it's right next to the airport.

Stunning though - I would.

It would be too big for me (us) but it looks like it's worth every dollar.

I like the way the drive goes around the house. And the porch.

But the interior is a bit stuffy. And it's very close to the airport.

Is it? I didn't even know Taylor had an airport.

It is ridiculously cheap for what it is isn't it? My husband points out it seems to be falling apart. And that it's in Taylor. And that we can't afford it. Which all seem like small issues.
Look at that staircase!

That's a pretty small airport - probably only small propellor planes going in or out. I doubt there'd be any jet traffic.

Looking a bit more closely at the pictures, it does appear that the plaster is in pretty rough shape in a few spots. Nothing a few strategically placed Bowie posters won't fix, though!

Ridiculously cheap would be fifty quid. It's half a million, isn't it?

For Halloween we could recreate the Don't Look Now drowning scene in the pond! Thus assuring no more trick or treaters ever again!
