The owner who built this home in 2003 has been trying to unload it since 2010, with no success. According to the listing agent’s website, although it was “previously priced at $6,500,000,” potential buyers can now “name your price.”
I’m docking points for the need to walk on the bowling lane to use the arcade games shown above.
Only one slide into the indoor pool? Sorry, that’s going to knock down my bid a little further.
Gee, that full-sized basketball court sure does have a lot of blue. I’m more partial to red. Going to have to repaint. Guess I’ll have to reduce my bit even more.
Folding chairs at the poker table? Yikes.
Okay, final bid: Five hundred bucks. Take it or leave it.
If you plan to outbid me, sealed bids are due by November 4, 2014 at 3:00 PM.
All that attention to the interior while the exterior is just butt ugly. (Pics 1&2 at the agent’s website, http://www.madisonhawk.com/auctions/andover/) Pic 3 isn’t too bad, nor is the back portion surrounding the deck, but… Yeah, I’m gonna have to take a good 50% off the listed price for my bid. Then there’s the 50% of the 50% to account for needing to be a damn hummingbird to enjoy 85% of what the house offers. Does the whole family have ADHD? Or over-active adrenal glands? Or an espresso addiction? Sit still for a second for crying out loud!
‘Kay, some of the interiors are pretty nice (Pics 4, 5, & 11 at Redfin), but as far as the whole goes, I’m not feeling the love. I hate to do this to you, Marty, but I’m gonna have to undercut you… I bid $400. (Even that’s only because I like the concept of the fireplace over the spa tub, but not the execution.) And yes, that’s my final answer.
I’d have to knock a good deal off to cover replacing the bowling balls and pins. There’s no excuse for weird candy-colored bowling balls and pins. It’s just wrong.
