It's 6000 sq ft of house complete with original fixtures, fireplaces, mouldings, hardwood, multiple staircases, slate roof (and ok ok a crappy reno kitchen). it needs a lot of work, but is just BEGGING for someone to purchase it who loves old houses and can fix it back up to its former glory. It is so unbelievable cheap for the size, because it is riddled with black mold. It had a bad leak and has been vacant for so long that it just grew into a huge mold problem so no one will touch it.

So, yeah, that first love thing is a real kicker - shows up in dreams, shrouded by rose colored glasses, and no horrors of untold deep seated issues (structural or psychological) that no matter how hard you work, you just can't fix. Dreams are something you can't control, but they are a useful outlet so go ahead and dream, and then live with and enjoy your new old house. Believe me, any house, like any husband no matter how good it seems at time of purchase, can always be improved!
