Yeah, especially since it was on sale when we bought our current house (which we love, but it's not our dream house), but priced past the point where we could rationalize going that far over budget, especially considering the work that it needed -- we didn't even go look at the inside (though we drooled over the pictures), because we knew we'd fall in love and want to make irrational decisions. What kills us now is realizing that maybe they WOULD have considered accepting an offer way below (and I do mean WAY below) their asking price (and nearer to our budget), considering that they donated it to the college just a few months later.
