Turrets syndrome

House with lots of turrets

No way I could pass up this one. The actual house is in Southlake, Texas, and will cost you a cool $5 million.

    …and someone was, once again, characteristically modest about his ability to shoot a killer header

    I wonder if the builder was compensating for something…

    I claim no Brownie points for this one; the title was just waiting there at the source.

    They stole the title from you even before you wrote it!

    Could never live there. How do you hang artwork on curved walls?

    A LovelyListing commenter left the following: “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hai… What the…? You said to just look for the tower.”

    Only in Texas. Especially in Southlake.

    OMG I actually like that house. Which just goes to show, there’s a buyer for anything if you look long enough. Not that I can buy that house. I wish. The only thing I would change — that I can see from the pic so far — is the landscaping. Needs tall pines all around it. Lots of ’em. None o’ that green moustache crap.

    And they need to tell you up front which of those towers conceals the missile silo.

    Charles it’s Texas… they all have missile silos.

    I want a house just like it! I must move to Texas I think. Heh.

    The very first apartment I had in this town was in a complex whose office was located in a free-standing circular tower not unlike these, albeit darker and gloomier. (We’re talking, oh, 1976 here.) I’m told the place has gone to hell in the interim, though really it didn’t have all that far to travel.
