The home, named Summertide, was originally built in the 1920s

So homes get names now when they reach an epic level? When did homes become like swords?

19.5 mil? Oh, sure, yeah, I've got that in pocket change, probably in my other smoking jacket.

Hn... I recall seeing that house going boating/jetskiing on Tahoe in the summer. I had no idea it was Hughes' old estate.

Well if I had an extra $20 mil laying around I'd be busy getting on the 40 chicks at the same time thing.

Not really, yes, no

Damn, two out of three, but I don't like Howard Hughes.

So the Daily Mail writes their articles based on the information gathered from photo captions...it all makes sense now.

I hate reading the same sentence 5 times.

Complete with a fully stocked urine cellar.

Naming estates and retreats was a very common practice for the wealthy in the early 1900s. Most of the mansions on Long Island's Gold Coast have names, on Lake Tahoe the Henry J Kaiser estate (Filming location for the Godfather Part II) was named Fleur De Lac.

Nope I would start a cult.  Benderism.  The trinity would be Bender, Lela, and Hedonism-bot.  Liquor, blackjack, and hookers would make up the majority of the services, which would be daily.

In fact, forget the blackjack.

They probably named them because they owned several and it was just easier to tell the help which house to pack for with one word.

"Jeeves, please pack my swim trunks - I'm going to Summer at Fartsworthsoggybottompoopoopantsacello."

"Yes, Sir. Would you like the red ones with the blue stripes or the blue ones with red stripes?"

"Damit Jeeves, Do I have to do everything? Farking surprise me!"

"Very good Sir. I think the red ones will be the ticket."

"Great, now can you please wipe me? I'm done."

"One ply or two ply?"

For a recluse etc it is fairly modest

I could definitely see myself living there. Anyone want to give 20Mil ?
 
2014-05-16 08:54:54 AM  
Yes.

Yes.

Sadly, no.
 
2014-05-16 08:55:41 AM  
Yea, I have that much stashed in my old couch and frequented hotel room. Oh wait....s**t!!
 
2014-05-16 08:57:27 AM  
Does it come with all of the jars of urine?
 
2014-05-16 09:10:43 AM  
Pretty sure even rich people aren't dumb enough to shell out near $20 mil in cash like that.

Everybody knows you have a buddy of yours at the bank secure you a lowest-possible-rate 20-year loan, which you then turn around with the money you were going to use to buy the house, and invest it in something with a higher rate of return than the loan's interest rate- and actually get paid to buy it.
Granted, it won't be as much as it would if you just invested the 20 mil, but hey, free house.

Well, that does it.  Now I have to become rich so I can build a mansion and name it Steve.

You will need to include a description of the location, for the mountains I suggest Steve of the Hill People.

They knew how to give their mansions cool names back then. These days, all we get is stupidity like "Neverland".

I lived a few blocks from there for a winter. Really, really cool place to live. Ladies (or gay homosexuals), I will sleep with you for $20 million. I look like a male Demi Moore (younger and not really). Takers?
