It could be mine – if I had $28 million.  Of course, I don’t really need all three lots, so I could just buy the house for a mere $18 million.  Sigh.

I think you or I should buy this house and preserve it in her honor. I read a memoir she wrote and she truly enjoyed this house, swimming in the bay, etc.

Gosh I left my checkbook at home- otherwise I'd buy it! Ha ha! It's a wonderful place- and it looks like lots of updates were done on it to freshen it up and bring it to modern standards. I like the kitchen- very spacious! Someone's going to make out well on that sale- smart investor!

Even if we had the money to purchase this gorgeous property, we don't have a family to fill it. Ha! Ha!
What a splendid place to live though. Thanks for sharing.
