    well if you have an extra $1,950,000 laying around its yours. sleep walking not recommended




    Can't hack your nosy neighbors anymore? Consider this 10-bedroom Victorian mansion located on Watch Island, a private island in the Thousand Islands region near Clayton, N.Y., Listing price: $1,950,000.

    The 6,500-square-foot house was built in 1903 by Walter Jerome Green Jr., a banker and yachtsman. It sits on 1.3 acres and has all the modern amenities, including a large boathouse and extensive docking facilities -- which one would obviously need. The island is located near the Thousand Islands Bridge.

    The home retains its lavish use of wood and many period features, including a claw-footed tub.

    Green was the director of the Savage Arms Corp. and president of Utica Investment Co., the Utica City National Bank, and a director of the First National Bank and Trust Company. He was also rear commodore of the Frontenac Yacht Club and had a 75-foot yacht named Verdi, according to the June 6, 1909, New York Times.

    Mike Franklin of Select Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.

    I think it's kind of cool but also kind of dangerous. On the other hand, if it's been around for over a hundred years.....

    I see the little 7-11 in the corner, so yes, I'll take it.

    The world is haunted.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
