High-End Real Estate

I know my geek roots are showing when I see Rivendell in the Fellowship movie, and I think, "FSBO, 22,000 SF hand-crafted manor with 16 BD, 8 BA, charming gazebo, pristine water garden and riverfront, plus territorial views. Motivated seller retreating into the West."

The Mines Moria, OTOH, are more like "Secure, rock-solid fortress in gated community with 3 million SF dining hall for guests, spacious mausoleums, and glorious pillars. No view, needs some minor repair. All mineral rights included."

"Some pest problems," with the Moria property.

I'm sure that'd come out in the home inspection.

Yeah, and besides, what mines *don't* have goblin infestations these days.

Our Pest Control Wizard has already dealt with the more serious fiery shadow issue.

Barad-dur.

Nice fixer upper with lovely view of basaltic plain. Rugged mountains for the active outdoor type, and a dark and gloomy view for the angst maester in yur life.

(Forecloseur sale, see Steward of Gondor for details.)

I like the foreclosure sale. And yet I have this nagging feeling that most people won't car for the location, despite being so conveniently near the geothermal power of Mt. Doom. :)

Yeah, it would take a rare type to think of setting up house there. Likely a geomancer to knock down the western mountains and let in rains to soften up the place with burgeoning plant life.

On the other hand you have ...

Lothlorien

Picturesque location, gently used. Sacrifice sale by relocating owner. Generous terms. Conditions apply.
