Each of your chosen shady setting choices are inspirational, Beth, though I'm slightly more enamored with the N CA infinity pool and rolling hillside view.

Tree rings can tell quite a story. Have you found and marked the year of your birth yet, Laurie? I looked carefully but couldn't find the "X marks the spot."

I think the ring that matches my age is either the first or second from the center.... :D

Good observation about the wiped-out wine cellar, Eugenia. Do you think it could have been the listing agent who surreptitiously emptied the cellar and disposed of the evidence? Or the seller when they decided they wanted or needed to dramatically downsize -- or upsize?

But you're right, without the fully-stocked wine cellar, a listing price of $9,950,000 seems much more reasonable....

LOL... having a pantry AND a butlers pantry would be a plus, Eugenia, but don't forget that wonderfully temperate year-round weather for lots and lots of outdoor living and activity time!

Here are what I see as the pros and cons of ever-evolving high technology, Carley: It either performs exactly as expected -- or completely unexpectedly! It often simplifies my life -- and sometimes complicates it. Technology can grant me peace of mind -- or drive me to give it a piece of my mind. They perform flawlessly as long as I've downloaded the latest updates or purchased the latest versions -- or they hiccup, even fail (sometimes without even a "bleep" of a goodbye) if I'm not constantly recharging batteries!

So I guess the question would be: Am I smart enough for a Smart Home?

This Ashville home is not whimsical -- simply grand. But at a price of over $10 million, it should be!

Of course, having been on the market for nearly two years, I'd imagine a slightly lower offer price would be considered.

Good to know that the CdA Resort allows pets in the room, mpwuzhere. From what I've found online, it's a $75 fee per stay. In that case, I think I'd opt for a Tower room with a private balcony lake view and a fireplace. There's nothing like a cozy lakeside room with a view.

I think the photo might have been taken while their owner stopped to post a comment on the blog and check on progress at the Blog Cabin Cam (when it was still giving us those as-they-happened updates.)

Then again, maybe it was simply a great photo op!
