Default Frair Park up for sale??

This story is inaccurate so probably not true. The Abbeyrd site got it from www.boston.com but I imagine they deleted the link.
http://abbeyrd.best.vwh.net/news/709...newcancer.html

"Seven months after the death of George Harrison, the former Beatle's Seattle home is for sale for $25.8 million, according to the Seattle Times. The home at the Friar Park estate is a former nunnery that was built in 1889. There are 120 rooms in the property, which Harrison bought in 1970, the paper said. The monthly payment on the home with 5 percent down on a 30 year mortgage would be $157,434.47."

It would be funny if some millionaire actually called up a Seattle real estate office and asked about purchasing it.

I don't think this can be true, due to the obvious mistakes in the report but also, I don't think Olivia would be quick to sell the Park, its a big part of George still, despite the events of recent years. Besides George always thought of Friar Park as Sir Frankie Chrisps home that he was taking care of. Im sure there will have been some instruction left about the Park in Georges will though. Don't sell George!

It's just devil's radio, I think.

I think we should all pool our money together, call up the real estate company & tell them WE want to buy it! LOL!!!

Haven't we heard this rumour before?

Remember, too... many more people live at Friar Park than just Olivia & Dhani.

Right...let's get on with the collecting then. I'll start..ok, I've got in my pocket 6 dollars cash about 20 cents change and a fuzz ball. What does that get us a brick maybe a small annual flower in the garden.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I agree,even though I often wonder how Olivia can stay there esp. since that attack. I guess the happy memories of George overshadow the ugly memories. I hope they don't sell. I shudder to think of George's gardens in some uncaring strangers hands.
