The realtor must have had a sense of humor, or had never actually seen the property.

I was reminded of the wonderful movie, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948) staring Cary Grant and Myrna Loy as a couple tired of living in Manhattan who buy a run down house in Connecticut, only to find out they are in over their heads. Melvin Douglas plays the role of the “suffering” architect who tries to give everybody what they want. Don Brodie in the role of the painter knows a thing or two about handling a client without them knowing it, and Louise Beavers, the family cook who saves the day. Cary and Myrna at their best.

  1. This also looks like the house in the movie “The Money Pit” starring Tom Hanks. Looks like it will take at least two weeks to get back in shape, LOL. Spectacular detail in this image and you know I’m loving all the textures and peeling paint in this image Steven 😀 Awesome work.
