House Hunting0

I’ve been house hunting lately, which got me curious about the houses of people who have a lot more money than I do.  Bill Gates, for example.  They say it’s a buyer’s market in this economy, so I figured if  Bill was trying to unload one of his properties, maybe I’d make an offer.  Who knows, there could be an indoor racetrack or some sort of giant robot dueling ring in the deal . . .

U.S. News & World Report offers a comprehensive online tour of the house, but only from the outside.  It does, however, include the price tag on this tiny hovel: $53,392,200.

I can’t even count that many digits; I stumble mentally after that first comma.

All told, this Pacific Northwest-styled lodge is over 66,000 square feet in size.  It has seven bedrooms, 24 bathrooms, six kitchens and six fireplaces.

For a look at the inside, we turn to Youtube and a video created by the architects for Bill Gates himself.  And while it is only a virtual tour, it definitely shows what this house has to offer:

Nope.  Not for sale.  Looks like I’ll have to stay in my two bedroom leaky shack for the time being.
