First of all omg re house I hope you get it because it's amazing. It's like the after on Extreme make over house edition when they 'move the bus' I kept expecting Ty to pop out!

But I did think it was cheating to put that gorgeous professional model in the photo's to dress it..... ;-)

I love all the rooms and love the idea of the haunted mansion movie room! I have always wanted to buy a classic car cut it in half and make a drive in movie in my dream home where you sit in the car and watch a big screen. A popcorn machine and servers on roller skates lol... ( poor Jo will she dress up ? )

Update us! Fingers crossed! Plenty of scope for food porn to come out that kitchen. May I suggest an open kitchen with a webcam so your dis friends can enjoy 24 x 7 live streaming of food porn? :-)

All we have to do is offer enough money close to the asking price and we will hopefully get it. Then there is the whole loan qualifying thing, but hopefully we won't have a problem with that. We were "prequalified" last Fall so we'll see.

I don't think I want 24x7 live streaming as some days I don't want to captured on film!

I don't even think that was in the description, it was just a total bonus! The even better thing was that evidently the owner's sons burned up the BBQ a couple weeks ago and they plan on replacing it with a new one when the house sells!

I will also bring my charcoal one because I am a creature of habit, there are just some things better on the charcoal than gas, but wow! what an awesome hang out spot. I hope that Fran gives us time off to enjoy having a great place to chill!

I totally hope that we can move in there. I think the cats would venture out in the neighborhood as opposed to jumping the 12 ft walls, and most of the outdoor ones would be happy hanging out in the yard. I mean Fern Grotto, who wouldn't love to just hang there?

I'm excited. After the awful let down of the nasty neighbors on 1st street, this is a much nicer place and our cost for the addition on 1st street makes an awesome down payment and the rent on 1st street puts a big dent in the mortgage payment, so what's not to love? And we don't need an elevator!

Great bonus not needing an elevator! What peace of mind moving forward. A true home for life now if you want to. Nice feeling.

In America what time frame do you generally have from now to holding the keys if your offer is successful?

It all depends on what you put in your offer. Escrow generally lasts 30 days, but can go as long as 45 to 60 days. Also we might include a "rent back" clause in case the seller doesn't find another house to move to. We are going to work on writing the offer in the next day or two so we'll figure it out.

I'm hoping that we might even be able to take a look at it after our lunch in September, but I won't hold my breath!

I will love being able to work out swimming at home! And the parties we can throw, there is a whole pool house with toilet and shower. We are going to use the sauna for instrument storage so that will be not usable, but how many people really want a sauna in So Cal? Just go outside!
You'll love having the pool and tiki bar area and I'm with you...who needs a sauna in So Cal. The house looks amazing! I hope you're able to work out a deal.

30 to 40 days is good! Not sure what Escrow is we don't have it in the UK. Maybe it is similar to what we call the process of exchange and then completion of contracts in house buying. There is a lag period between exchange and completion , it can be the same day but more often about a week. Gives the lawyers a chance to square up all the house searches for anything sinister like building a car park across your kitchen lol and clear money etc.

Good luck! I type this with one hand from my infusion clinic with drug going in my other arm! Man I could do with your food porn right now!
