Are you not simply comfortable or well off, but, well, rich?
Do you regularly make impulse purchases of six figures or more?
If you needed to fly coast-to-coast in a hurry, could you rent a private jet without worrying about it? (Never mind if you actually would; the question is could you?)
In that case, you really need to check out this house now.
It's known as the "Gingerbread House," and has been a historical and artistic landmark of Sag Harbor, N.Y., since the 1850s. It's a one-of-a-kind Victorian home, gorgeously ornamented on the outside, handsomely decorated inside, with large rooms. It's sitting on a deep lot that fronts on Main Street, and it's zoned commercial.
Kathy's widowed mom bought the house in 1964, back when nobody was interested in old Victorians, and it's been in the family ever since. Since Camille passed away, the house came into the hands of other family members, including my lovely spouse. They've now decided to put it on the market.
If you're rich, of course you'll want to own this house. (Hell, I don't know who reads this blog.) If you're not rich, of course you'll want to do your rich friends a favor and tell them that the Gingerbread House can be theirs.
There's an open house on Thursday. Get in your private jet and go!
