But location is everything ( or so I've heard)

TALON said...

lol! I love fresh air so this might be just the sort of place I should be keeping an eye out for! Bonus, I could photograph birds without leaving the living room :)

MorningAJ said...

"Bit of a fixer-upper". You ever worked as an estate agent? (real estate... one of those US/UK language barriers)
You gave us a good laugh this week.

Thom said...

A bit? Just a bit you say? pffft LOL Great take on the story. Mine is up HERE. Have a great Monday. :)

Thom said...

PS...I wonder if Oliver would be able to convince Lisa to move from Park Square for this? LOL The Price Is Right!!!

Ellie said...

A bargain! Loved your take on the picture.

Greyscale Territory said...

Love the open air ceiling! The temptation of well-placed words!

John's comments said...

I say I feel that this advert is a tad inaccurate. Large house? Surely bijou cottage? So I'll put an offer in on that basis. My 140 is here

Me said...

Kinda looks like my place after my husband starts one of his "projects"...

Nah, that place is nicer. :)

jabblog said...

'large country home' - that's a bit of an exaggeration, it's more of a small cottage. Estate agents, eh? (Realtors, you folks across the pond call them, don't you?)

Brian Miller said...

lol. just a bit of work...nicely played g!

swputh said...

Ha ha, that was funny... Any one to buy yet?

izzy said...

Yes I'll buy it, thanks! -however- I already have :

I adore wide open windows and doors
my mossy beds and floors

climbing down from a loft on spiral stairs
share a warm fire and humble fare

(When it is two sets of 2 lines
the counter comes out right!)

the walking man said...

I would have posted it as "Antique, aged stonework for sale. Expensive but worth every pound. Will have to move them your self"

Akelamalu said...

We had very similar ideas on this one G-man! LOL

Felicitas said...

Love the pitch! You MUST be in sales, G - if not, you should be, 'cause you're a natural!

evalinn said...

I love the open air ceiling! :-D

Mona said...

Everything has value today...except Man...

Suz said...

Ha! G-Man..I've seen realty ads like that...so funny
buyer beware
Just a note to make you nuts...
Character means everything- letters, spaces, and punctuation...
That's why I use the Design 215 Character counter that Susan suggests....
Glad to meet you and your sense of humor

Mama Badger said...

A "bit" of a fixer upper? Maybe if a garden was what you were trying to buy!

secret agent woman said...

But wouldn't it be so cool to have property that included those old walls?

dulce said...

I'll buty it... When is the auction?

Jingle said...

lovely sale in 140.
Happy Monday!

Pat said...

Hilarious! We think alike. Oh, those deceptive real estate guys and gals.

S said...

Oh that looks like just about my budget! I'll take it!

hope said...

I love the ceiling description!

lime said...

you know this is a joke but i love happening across these sorts of places. love the old stonework.

Susan at Stony River said...

By 'priced to sell' I hope they're asking ten bucks! LOL

Then again, I always wanted sky lights...

Lulda Casadaga said...

great pic and great story! Whenever I get my home computer up and running I'll have to give this Monday thing a try...;)

Bill ~ {The Old Fart} said...

G~Man now this was good. I know a couple of places where you'd see this for sale offer.

ninotaziz said...

I still think it's a lovely real estate - for faeries...

Scott said...

I'm gonna give that a try on monday... thanks G-man!
