During my bi-weekly lottery dreaming moment I came across a 16,200 sq ft home in North County SD that has 8 bedrooms (6 in main house, then 2 “guest houses”) 13 bathrooms, 12 person theater, a garage that can fit 9 cars and a stable for 6 horses, on 6 acres of land for the reasonable price of $17.9 million!!!
SERIOUSLY! WHO THE FUCK LIVES IN A PLACE LIKE THAT?! I’d have golf carts and segways available for people to get around! I would put a sign on the gate that says “Rancho Sante Fe Abbey” and the doorbell would be the Downton Abbey theme.
