Most Notable Homes Ever Sold – Top 10
While most of us are very happy with the three bedroom, two bath American home, others are looking for something a little different. Read on for some of the most unusual homes offered for sale in recent years:
- The half-million dollar Malibu shack. In the Malibu Mountains, there is a 40 acre property whose only above-ground structure is a falling down wooden shack. The real property is below. Previous owners dug three miles of tunnels under the ground looking for gold.
2. An invitation to the ball at Hearst Castle. Invitations to the home, built in 1919 for newspaper magnate William Randolf Heast, were highly coveted. Guests could visit the stables, swim in the many pools or watch films in the on-site theater.
3. Heavenly digs. In Portland, Oregon, you can live in a converted church. Updates to the property involve a loft bedroom and a Japanese soaking tub. As a bonus, taxes on the property will remain frozen until 2016.
