House for sale


This beautiful home is located in the east side of Ocala. It is quite large and has been for sale for several months. One problem might be that it is located right next to huge power lines (just out of the photo to the right).

Now that can be a problem, but the house is fantastic! What a shame...

Halcyon said...

Is this anywhere near Jim's new cottage in Terrell? Looks like they'd fit in the same neighborhood!

if nobody has bought it so far you might get it at a bargain!

Lots of medical problems are being blamed on power lines. I'll have to pass.

Wolynski said...

I don't see what power lines have to do with anything - just draw the curtains. Beautiful house. Problem is, a lot of these houses are too big for even 4 people - keeping it air-conditioned, the upkeep, etc. Have to be wealthy.

My first house was located right next to the railroad tracks. Power lines might be dangerous, but so is a freight train barreling through your backyard. For this beauty I'd be willing to negotiate. :)

Hilda said...

A little too big for the two of us, thank you.

They used to say that power lines could cause cancer, but I think now they say there's not really any proof. Of course the lines still look crummy.

Wow nice house, and it looks like it's got a nice garage/shop too. Darned power lines anyway!

Olivier said...

elle est magnifique, dommage qu'elle soit si loin d'Évry ;). C'est vrai que juste a coté des lignes hautes tensions......cela mérite une ristourne

Saretta said...

That reminds me of the house I lived in across the street from an electric power station. It went zzzt zzzt zzzt all day and night!

It is a beautiful house and looks like there might be some property going along with it. Power lines are ok. We lived by them for over 30 years---thery didn't hum at all--and we all are healthy--only our sense of humor is a bit skewed.

I guess it's still true: location, location, location.

Jim Klenke said...

Its nice, I wouldnt mind having it.

brattcat said...

Hmmm, nice as this place is, those powerlines would be a mark in the negative column for me.

Lois said...

I wouldn't like the power lines either. It's still a beautiful house though.

I don't care about the power lines, but commuting would be hard...

After an electrician finished repairing some faulty wiring in an attorney's home he handed him the the bill.


''Four hundred dollars! For an hour's work?'' cried the attorney, ''That's ridiculous! Why I'm an attorney and I don't charge that much.''


To which the electrician replied, ''Funny, when I was an attorney I didn't either!''


Ha!

If you mean those kind way up in the air on those large frames? I wouldn't like that either. My sister-in-law lived under one of those kinds of power lines and ended up with cancer of the breast, lungs and etc., and people had told her it was not the place to live. But that it was dangerous though the power company said it would be safe.

Jarart said...

Quite a large house but nice looking. Of course, location is everything.

Marie said...

I don't like power lines. We had one near my residence but a few years ago a lady became very ill, and the power line got dismantled.

Daryl said...

I can understand how its not been snapped up .. I bet the taxes on it are enormous ... add to that landscaping and just day to day upkeep...

cieldequimper said...

Ah... So your photo is like the real estate photos, not showing the downside! It's so beautiful though...

Trillian said...

Great photo and beautiful house! Surely, there are no parking problems...

Jacob said...

@ Trillian - No, no parking problems! It has a large garage, large driveway and a large yard!

What a beauty! Nice capture and composition of her.

I love the terrace on the second floor.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

NICE house--too bad about the power lines!!! :-(

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Looks like a nice place - I'll take it - I need a place in Florida to crash at times! Heheheee!

The World Tour said...

That is a beautiful home.

Katmom said...

Wow, what a lovely home....
I own a parcel of land in Ocala and have been dealing w/the "Progress Energy" planning div.since 2008.They are putting in transmission lines in 'preferred corridors" and it looks like I am outta luck at ever selling my land as they say I am w/i the 250ft area of their corridor. Bummer.
I inheriated this land from my father. I had hoped to someday retire there...Not going to happen now...I feel for the Sellers. Did they build/buy the house by the power lines or did the lines go up after the home was built?
In a heart beat I would love to live there but I too am a bit nervous about living near major power lines.
