Are you talking about the one that's waaay out, brick, yard looks upkept. It would be on the left as you're heading out toward Oakland/Edmondson Co. I believe the one I'm thinking of has been sitting empty for at least 3 or 4 years.

They tried selling it at one point and wanted a RIDICULOUS price for it. It comes with several acres (30-something?). I was told that thieves or vandals broke into it and stole all of the copper wiring and any fixtures out of it and did EXTENSIVE damage in the process. Damage in the hundreds of thousands was my understanding.

Yeah I've always wanted to see inside that house because I've heard it had really nice/crazy architecture. It's been for sale for longer than 3-4 years I so believe. But I've also heard its way over priced.

I heard the IRS came in and seized it, the part is true about the vandals. Did the owners lose the home??? It's an awful mess.

What's the address? I'm sure you can still find some old interior pictures on Google from the real estate listing.

The original asking price was $675,000. And no, it was not involved with the IRS or due to overuse of credit cards. The owners were older and had health issues to the point they were no longer able to care for themselves. It has been sold on the courthouse steps twice, the first time bringing $400,000+ but the lady that bought it didn't pay for it. It was sold there this past week but I don't know what it was bid in for this last time or who bought it. I'm sure the house is going to require several thousands dollars to get it back to a livable state which is a shame because it was a beautiful home.

The original owners of the house passed away several years ago. The house was sold to a lady who purchased a few houses for tax purposes. She did not live in this house. This lady has since passed away. The bank has taken possession of the home. The house is in disrepair. Many things have been stolen from the house. The family of the original owners live nearby and have to pass this house daily. It is difficult for them to see the house in such a state. I'm not sure how the bank could sell this house at Master Commission---it is full of mold, holes & I'm sure rodents & bugs.

I wonder who will purchase it? The reason I knew about all of the vandalism is because a family member of mine owns a design firm that builds custom high-end homes and remodels existing ones. He had looked at it to buy when it was in the $400k range, but decided there was no room to make a profit on it at that price and in its current condition.

Yes as someone said the owners who actually lived there had a house in Lville also... This was a summer home for them. I looked into buying it, actually got a realtor friend to take me inside, very bad vandalism, to the point of no repair... Also black mold was discovered in the basement. Still had papers and belongings in the garage attached to the residence. The back nook where the stained glass was is/was beautiful, would have been a very nice home

So it will probably end up demolished and sold for the lot/land?

I wonder who in the hell vandalized it that bad? It seems a little far out for that kind of activity.

No. They're in the same vicinity, but the one you're referring to was repaired and has never been abandoned.

I stopped there one day to check it out. One of the doors to the attached garage was unlocked so I went in. The house its self is beautiful, if u could over look the rat poo and mess. The basement is just as big as the main floor. It could truly b a beautiful home. People did go and steal several things. The air units were gutted. I my several for the right price would buy it, the price they want for it now isn't worth it. It would probably take 6 months of work with no budget to get it live able.

I'm guessing it was a Master of Commissioner's sale. I HOPE whomever bought it is able to restore it to its former glory.
