Mansions in the sky
I heard a report this morning Rocker Sheryl Crow has put her Hollywood Hills estate on the market.
Now it sounds pretty cool, although maybe not my taste. The 11 acre compound includes three — count ‘em — homes with amenities including an infinity pool overlooking the Pacific, hiking trails and even a campsite area
The main house includes four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, Spanish-style architecture, a library, wine cellar and chef’s kitchen. House 2 features three bedrooms, three baths and panoramic views of Hollywood. The last home, dating back to 1895, has two bedrooms, two baths and an eagle claw tub. That totals nine bedrooms, 8.5 baths, plus a bunch of rustic, outdoorsy stuff like canyon pathways … a campsite … and a palapa (which is a thatched roof dwelling).
And it’s all for just under $16 million, $15,950,000 to be exact.
It’s fun to see the aerials of the lavish homes at the Hamptons or elsewhere around the country on TV shows or movies. But did you ever think about who’s maintaining those homes? I can’t even keep up with my modest home — inside or out.
Like I said, California isn’t my style. Sheryl Crowe’s estate looks great, but I think I could get about 25 wooded acres with a quaint two bedroom log home overlooking lakes, rivers, the ocean or the mountains for about $100-150,000 in, let’s say, Maine. I know I would be happier there.
Besides, I’m holding out for my final resting place in the mansions of heaven with streets of gold. And it’s been given to me for free. Take that, Cheryl.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Don’t be a people pleaser, be a God pleaser.
