      Been noted earlier; the plane tipped it off.

      The Bob Glidden Pro Stock - I had that in Hot Wheels version. It was ugly then, too.

      Looking at that property again, it appears the space across the street is part of it too. That's where the barn/stable is.

      Looking forward to seeing it pop up again in the Spring when it's down to $15.5M

      Maybe you can get them to throw in all the furnishings, cars, plane and the bowling shoes too. Then it would be worth the $15.5M.

      Curious how you stumbled upon this place?

      There's absolutely nothing going on in Amherst, hence the low price.

      Once you buy it all that clutter would go along with the current owner.

      What I want to know is who makes this faucet and how much is it?

      Once those are removed, it's not a horrible house.

      the tiles along the stairwell are Sid Dickens memory stones. my mom has a couple dozen.

      It went into a bidding war and Bud stepped up and said it would stock the fridge with free Bud for a year if the new owner does not renovate the walls.

      Haha that's hilarious. I'd be the worst candidate for a year of bud. That's the only beer that I won't drink. Idk why but it does not agree with my stomach or my digestion system.

      It gets better. The previous owner was also a professional Santa, so the red and white decor makes total sense.

      He died this year at age 69 of cancer, was a Buffalo native and drank Bud every single day of his life from age 21 to 69.

      Tangentially related. I was looking at homes for sale and the surrounding neighborhoods and found this.
