Ever Dream of Being BV's Neighbor?

Recommended Posts

If so... Now you can!!!

Click here, select Brookville, set price to 177,000 to 178,000, click search, then click on the ranch house, list # 01-8049

My uncle and aunt are selling their house. I thought I see if anyone here wanted to be my neighbor... well, one that is a quarter miles away... for $177,900. Yes? No? Crazy? :P

Anyways, it's a ranch house with a large 2 car garage and a swimming pool set on about 2 acres of land. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a nice finished basement (as a "family room"). The only real downside with it is the condition of the roads around here.... and... uh... the race track a few hundred yards from it. Which, I might mention, is why they are selling it. They really dislike the racetrack, Thunder Mountion Speedway. :D

So any takers? Atleast I'm selling my ATV, so you wouldn't have to put up with it zooming by. :lol:

You couldnt buy that house where I live for double that . Would be a nice country home for someone from here (NY). Hey BV is there a Stewarts not far from where you live with an old style Drive in Restaurant and a Drive in Movie in back ? I think I have been near there before I remember that Thunder mountain speedway for some reason. It is in NE PA right. I think we took 81 North to get there.

Brookville, of course. :D In other words... rural NW PA. The house... I'm not quite sure.

Nah... I'm on the north west side. There are, strangely, more than one Thunder Mountain Speedway in PA. Found that out on google and this just supports that. So... yeah, no drive in restaurant but we do have a drive in movie theatre! :P

No thanks on the McMansion, I like being able to tell which house is mine when I am driving up the street at 2 in the morning dead tired. They also make delivering hell because all of the generally poor layout of the subdivisions they are in, overuse of cul-de-sacs and whatnot. Give me an older, unique house or some custom contruction, please.

Don't b e jealous, you know you'd snap one right up if you could afford it just like all the rest of us would...

No. I'll take my cheesy 1960s bungalow anyday. At least its true to what it is - a box to put your stuff in and sleep in. McMasions make me laugh, what with their faux columns, mishmashed styling cues, ugly slab stucco'd walls, ornate stree-facing facades and blase internment camp-style rears. Plus, all the ones I see are about 10 feet apart. Wow! What living! Let's move out to the country to get away from it all...then live right up on your neighbor just like it was in the city. Real brains at work there.

Faux people faux 'owning' their faux luxury cars in their faux houses. A big pseudolifestyle.

Hmmm...what you're describing is NOT what I would call McMansions. I agree, those things are cheap looking and suck. I've always defined a McMansion as a very large house with a high quality of construction...like a mansion...that is stuck on a small (in comparison) lot and surrounded by similar type structures.

Heh.  They aren't vulgar.  Most of them are kept hidden away by gated walls so as not to be too ostentatious.

Umm, I'm pretty sure walling themselves off from everyone else only makes them look like even bigger jerks in the eyes of the public.

You're misusing the term then.

McMansion is a derisive pharse used to describe a set of near identical homes chosen from a catalog loaded with fake, perverted architectual cues (high-pitched roofs, massive archways that serve no purpose) and placed in a subdevelopment with little to no yardage. High quality construction? Have you seen these things being built? Wood, wood, wood, wood. My house is an ugly old bungalow-style single-story house and its made out of cinderblock. No rot or termite worries here.

Yeah, that's exactly it.  San Jose is so beautiful.

Change the grass and roofs to brown, the houses to tan, and you have a typical newer Denver suburb...those about $350k-450k typically here. Covenant controlled, a couple with 1.8-2.5 kids, mandatory minivan and SUV or Camry/Accord and SUV in the garage :)

Fly, get it right, those are faux-SUVs, either tall-roof station wagons for people obsessed with image (SRX, ML, X5, etc) or real SUVs dumbed down for those obsessed with image (Escalade, Navigator, etc). Isn't shallowness great?

I like the ones here that have Save the Panther, Save the Everlades, or Preserve Florida Wildlife license plates on their Land Cruisers, the ones they drive home to a subdivision that likely paved over some wild habitat.

Irony rocks.
