Graves Island lighthouse not your average fixer-upper
For sale by owner: Antique five-story structure built in 1903. Ten-acre property, majestic water views with private dock. Two bedrooms, kitchen/library potential, no baths. Needs work.

So a conventional real estate listing might look for a piece of property for sale on Graves Island, 9 miles off the Massachusetts coast. When the owner is the US government, however, and the property is a 110-year-old working lighthouse anchored to a rocky, wave-battered ledge near the entrance to Boston Harbor, that hardly does the offering justice.

For that matter, simply getting to, and into, the lighthouse...presents a formidable challenge for anyone looking to buy what would be a truly novel vacation home.

I've dreamed of living in a place like this. A private fortress, nothing but the sound of the ocean waves, no neighbors, and the recent upheaval of sharks in these parts is an extra bonus. No seal shit or unwanted visitors to worry about.

There's only one problem, as I see it. It's a long way to the top.

Whee?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Thanks. 8)

I'm intrigued by the one in Scottland. Abandoned since 1933, yet there's still goats grazing in the fields. Have these goats been wild for almost 100 years?

I'll bet you could talk your insurance agent into giving you a discount on your homeowner's premiums for its being virtually burglar-proof. You wouldn't even need ADT.

But it's such a cute booty.

Considering its age.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I was about to hit the THANKS button, but then Abdul ruined it. :x

On the other hand, I'm not liking the hill behind the house. I would be embarrassing to have my house buried in an avalanche in the winter. :oops:

Sold for $933,888 to an unknown buyer. A new record price for a lighthouse.

How about...Underground Vegas estate lets you weather the apocalypse
The late Girard “Jerry” G. Henderson, an entrepreneur who had an interest in technology and a strong desire to protect his family from the atom bomb, spent millions creating the perfect nuclear hideaway. Now his 16,000-square-foot underground house, situated in southeast Las Vegas at 3970 Spencer St., is on the market.

...take an elevator down 26 feet beneath the ground and you’ll find another house--this one truly built to last.

In fact, the home has been preserved in all its 1970s-era glory, including a now-retro kitchen (lower left photo), bright pink walls and a fake backyard fit for the Brady Bunch.

That's a horrifying kitchen. Some of the wall-paper is hurl-worthy, too, but for $1.7 mill it's probably not a bad deal, especially if you can subsidise your income hydroponically.
