Visting His Lordship's House

On Friday evening, Lisa suggested that we go for a little drive around town and go have a look at something that we see all the time here in Fernley.

His Lordship's Manor House

Sitting on a prominent hill overlooking Fernley from the west is a very large house. It appears in some of the other photos I have shared of hills to the west of town. Lisa wanted to get a closer look at it, so we drove up into the hills as close as we could get without, as far as we could determine, going up the private road to the house and its five-car garage.

The listing I found online for this property gives some information about it. It's apparently a 5-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath house. Goodness only knows what the internal layout is. Lisa and I call it "His Lordship's Manor House" and suggest that the other expensive homes in this are are for His Lordship's top-level retainers, with lesser minions clustered on the slopes below.

It's a great view from up there, but even if we had the $1.6 million (I know, cheap by Bay Area standards), I don't think Lisa and I would want to live here. Maybe we'd buy it, hire a caretaker, and set it up as an place to hold retreats for SF/F convention runners.
