The link never works- but click on this http://www.mlsli.com/unisearch.cfm

then type in 2203099 where is says find a home on the right.

Its actually on our list, we are hoping to watch the market and see if it goes down a bit. Im not in love with the kitchen, but the amazing backyard is WOW

Not much.

Or, you could buy one of the ridiculous tear-downs-turned-McMansions in our neighborhood, like this one. This was listed for 1.2 million for ages, looks like they're finally coming to their senses and bringing the price down a bit.

They're hideous--giant, brick boxes killing all the charm of our neighborhood.
LOOK at it! Ew. I fear that our neighborhood will be overrun with these monstrosities soon.

Here''s a few...
House 1
House 2
House 3
House 4
House 5
This one is a little far but has a nice media room!
Tacori--These homes are beautiful! I wish we had more homes with great architectural detail like this here in Illinois.

You can live wherever you want, as far as I''m concerned, puffy!


I know what you mean, though. It''s shocking to see how expensive some areas are.

If I were to ever spend one million dollars on a home, I would want something that is well-built, gracious, and had some *land* around it. I don''t understand these monster homes on 1/3 of an acre of land, they look so silly.

Wow. That is gorgeous.
We pay more for taxes on our home that is worth 1/3 of the one you posted!

Oh man, those of you that say a million can barely buy you a basic small home should come on over to Cleveland.


For a little over, gorgeous, huge lakefront.

For just at, a 9 bed/8 bath 7300 sq. ft on 2 acre castle.

Edit: Links were broken!!

I won''t even bother getting a link...a million in Manhattan gets you a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment...and they won''t large either
