As Seen On EBayPosted: 8 July 2012
And now for something completely different (thank you Monty Python)
Have you heard about the CEO or something from Oracle that is buying a Hawaiian Island? How about good old Sir Branson that owns an Island in the Bahamas? Or wiz kid Ted Turner who is the largest land owner in the US? Have you ever wanted one of those chic Italian villas?
Years ago actress Kim Basinger bought a town in Georgia…yep the whole damn town….then I thought it was crazy to own a town but Hell it seems that it is almost common place nowadays……
Ever go on Ebay looking for that special thing to bid on and then go into cardiac arrest waiting to see if it is yours or if some low life sniper beat you out of your desired item? If so, then here is an auction for you!
(Newser) – Ever dreamed of a Tuscan home? How about an entire town? If you’ve got $3.1 million to spare, you could score one on eBay, the Telegraph reports. The 800-year-old village of Pratariccia is for sale on the auction site; the buyer will get 25 run-down houses among scenic hills not far from Florence. You won’t be purchasing any new friends, though: Pratariccia has been empty since the 1960s.
“It’s a unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own your very own Tuscan hamlet, and the price is a complete bargain,” says the agent in charge of the sale. The property is currently owned by a monastic order. Posted in the classified section of the site rather than the bidding section, the village had been listed for $6.3 million, but the price has since dropped; two offers have fallen through. Local officials say it’s an incredible development opportunity—but the buyer will have his work cut out for him, notes Business Insider: The stone homes are collapsing and plants are taking over.
You too could be a land owner and a squire about town…….
