Sometimes it's fun to hop online and window shop the things you'll never be able to have.
Real estate is one of my favorite topics because even though the places I look at are way out of my price range, sometimes I'll see something in the pictures that'll inspire a change to my own home.
That's exactly why I put drawer pull-outs in all of my lower cabinets. No more reaching into the abyss for a pot lid, now they all just slide out to me. Saw it in a $600,000 home listing.
While looking around the internet I stumbled across something impressively unique among the carpet of tract homes in the OKC metro. A 12,000 square foot custom-built mansion that's been on the market for almost a year and a half.
On the outside, it straight up looks like the nice homes you would see while skiing in the ultra-nice resort towns of Colorado... Estes Park, Breckenridge, Winter Park, Aspen, etc... The inside seems a little more purposely designed for whoever built it, maybe a little too much.
As always, details and finishes that are intended as fancy and affluent generally come across as busy and ugly to us poors...
Maybe that's why it's been on the market for so long.
