On today’s age-50-plus home tour, see wide choice of places, prices, and purchase options

Denver’s primacy as a location for age-50-plus housing has been building for 20 years, when builders first began creating communities around that market.  Now, as demographic changes and the virus emergency add more energy to the demand, you’ll find even wider choices of places to live and ways of purchasing, including these possibilities:

Urban Lifestyles: This year you’ll find four options close to Denver’s urban core and its popular Cherry Creek shopping district: Those include new-urban homes with main-floor masters or elevators in Lowry; and two popular enclaves built decades ago that have rare resales now.

New master-plans: Montaine in Castle Rock is a spectacular new setting for age-55-plus homes. You’ll also

Prince’s Purple Rain tour bus is for sale

The 1984 release of the album Purple Rain and accompanying movie brought Prince to the height of his fame. Prince went on tour that year to promote the album, and now the bus that served as his home on the road is scheduled to be auctioned off by Mecum in December.

First spotted by Silodrome, the bus is a 1983 Eagle Model 10 painted in multiple shades of purple (obviously), with a custom interior that can house up to six people. It sports captain’s chairs from a private jet, plus a bathroom, kitchen, and couch that pulls out into a double bed.

8 Hidden Problems in the Bedroom You Might Not Spot in a Home Video Tour

Video tours have quickly become the norm in the COVID-19 era as a safe way to get a closer look at the house you want to see in person. And while no doubt the kitchen and living room are high on your list to check out, the bedroom deserves more than a passing glance.

After all, a bedroom isn’t just a place to catch some zzz’s; it’s also a place that can function as a retreat or a quiet workspace. For your kids, it’s a room to play, do homework, and host sleepovers. And sure, a bedroom’s size and closet space are important—but they’re not the only things you should ask to see during a video tour. In fact, glossing over the bedroom could mean huge peeves after you buy—or worse, real problems that cost you money.

Here are some potential issues you might find hiding in the boudoir.

Friday the 13th Is the Perfect Time to Take a Virtual Tour of Ireland’s ‘Most Haunted House,’ Now Up For Sale

If you’re looking for a property to invest in that checks all the boxes – private, spacious, charming, historicwith a reasonable asking price, Lotus Hall in Ireland may very well be the one. The 14th-century mansion that boasts 22 bedrooms, 97 windows and 63 acres of land dates back to 1350 and is located on Wexford’s Hook Peninsula in the southeast of Ireland. 

There’s just two minor caveats: the sprawling abode is Ireland’s most haunted house and the estate was said to have been visited by the Devil. Other than that, you’re good!

The story behind Loftus Hall dates back centuries when the Tottenham family had occupied the estate. Legend has it that a dark stranger approached the hall during a storm looking for shelter. He was taken in by the Tottenham family when Lady Anne Tottenham fell head over heels for the stranger. One night, during a

Viewers are stunned by real estate listing’s 3D tour of VERY creepy Kentucky home

Social media users have been left stunned by strange rooms and bizarre items found on a 3D walkthrough tour of a large home listed for sale in Kentucky. 

The $375,000 property, which was built in 1970 and is located in Louisville, boasts two kitchens, three bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The home has previously been used as a ‘church, school, day care center and home business’, according to the real estate listing, and it features separate bathrooms with urinals. 

A giant shower room is also seen, which appears to be an old baptism font. The property once served as Bonaventure Boulevard Church of Christ, but the church moved out more than ten years ago. 

Many boxes of pornography, DVDs and old Christmas decorations are also strewn across the home.

It is unclear whether a company is currently operating out of the home, but it certainly seems the present owner is quite

Why a commercial glass contractor will make his PGA Tour debut this week

When Camiko Smith steps to the tee at the Bermuda Championship on Thursday, it will be the culmination of a lifelong dream.

The 35-year-old Bermuda native grew up playing Port Royal Golf Course, getting his start in the game with a single club from the course’s caddie shack. It only seems fitting Port Royal serves as the site of his first career start on the PGA Tour.

“Definitely very excited,” Smith told reporters on Tuesday. “To have it on my island, on my home course … Really looking forward to it.”

This moment for Smith nearly came a year earlier as he led the local qualifier coming down the back nine last fall. But several ill-timed mistakes doomed his chances. This year’s qualifier was a story of redemption. Rounds of 70 and 71 easily garnered medalist honors as he played his way into the tournament taking place

Tour a Designer’s Sylvan Hideaway With Personality to Spare

Business partners and married couple Everick and Lisa Brown have had a long time to hone their working relationship. The two first met in elementary school in Los Angeles, and attended school together all the way through high school. After they graduated, however, they lost touch for about two decades before reconnecting at a high school reunion. Soon, they were not only romantically involved, but L.A.-based Lisa also began running the business side of Everick’s interior design company, which is located in New York. The two carried on a bicoastal relationship for over a decade, before Lisa finally moved out to Yorktown Heights, New York, and into the stunning Shingle-style home where they still live today.

For Lisa in particular, buying and decorating the house was a leap of faith: She was still based on the West Coast when they purchased it about 10 years ago, which meant Everick was
