I love a Greek Revival !  It's something about those giant columns .  .  .

1830 Greek Revival mansion in New York
4,615 square feet on 1.9 acres

$799,000


I could definitely enjoy this view.





Although, the $21k property taxes would be a killer .  .  .

I'd have about an hour's drive each way to work and back.  I could handle that .  .  .

I'd buy Forrest Gump's house. Or have one built just like it, maybe brick though?

Many houses I'd move to... perhaps one in Montana.

Ok I have to wonder why you would drive over an hour to work the same job if you won enough money to buy this one.   Grin

This reminds me of that TV commercial for a house for sale and the guy says, "We'll take it" when he sees that the house has a ridiculously long, winding, and fun to drive road/driveway.  Might be an Audi TV commercial.

Believe it or not, I've never seen the movie, (I'm just not a movie watcher).  So I had to look this one up .  .  .



From Houzz.com, click for more information !


Plantation houses have always been a favorite of mine !  The interesting thing about the Forrest Gump House is that it doesn't exist.  According to the South Carolina Information Highway website, the house was built specifically and only for the movie.  It was torn down after filming was completed because, while functional, it wasn't built to code .  .  .

Here you go, Imran .  .  .

18,208 acres !  !  !
Asking $ 16,500,000
It's like buying your own state .  .  .

I'd keep my job even after winning the lottery for no reason other than I enjoy what I do.  This makes my coworkers look at me and shake their heads even more than they normally do .  .  .

Seems legit.  Having Imran's 18,000 acre estate above, I would definitely have a quarter mile and road course set up somewhere .  .  .

I was just ribbing ya, Todd. I know a lot of people who would like to keep their job after a life changing winning. Some actually do but I think I would have a harder time going to the same job sooner or later. I would rather try my luck at opening my own repair shop or probably more like a restoration shop. I think a great thing for you would be to open a high end classic car sales business. You could buy/sell all types of classic and collector cars and keep or at least drive the ones you really like.

Years ago I worked in the downtown parking garages. A group of us put money together when the lottery got high. When asked this same question one lady said if we won she would remodel her apartment, lol.

Well $millions of dollars?... first thing first is to calm down and try not to do anything irrational.

In the meantime, I would just keep things simple for now... find something along the norther S. Carolina shorelines, or southern N. Carolina shore.

I could definitely enjoy living there !  You're not right on the water.  But I could still enjoy that location .  .  .
