  1. I propose that all the commenters have to add their own line to the listing above. I’ll start:

    “Why pay for a room at the Madonna Inn when you can buy your very own one-of-a-kind disaster right here in sunny Palm Springs!”

  2. Looks to me like another “collector mentality gone berzerk” household. Alex, can you throw up an image of that crazy Lake st. property next to this one? Remember, the one that looked like Raggedy Ann and Andy came to life and built a castle in Sea Cliff?

  3. Looks like Bobby Trendy found a new project after he did Anna Nicole Smith’s Hollywood home…or is this a former Liberace residence?

  4. dear editor. you seemed to have misspelled something (this is coming from the worst speller–me–ever): “Daring and Unpspoiled”

    [Editor’s ntoe: Thnaks!]

  5. “Why buy and be house poor, when you can rent and collect all your favorite toys!”

    Sorry… Just woke up… and need coffee…
