I'm reposting this to get at the top of the list-otherwise it'll get buried where no one will see this.
HEADS UP FOLKS!
I just took a tour of the Lovell House 12/6/2003. The current owner is a senior citizen in probably in her 70's and I dunno what arrangements she has made for the house when she passes on, nor what her children intend to do. But it's clearly showing its age and looks like it's high maintenance for 1 person, it's undergoing some repairs to the steel frame and the interior and fixtures and systems are clearly dated. And I'm sure some folks are watering at the mouth to get the property and demolish it. Some action must start now to same and refurbish it. I know, I know you see all those glorius pics by Julius Schulman of the exterior and the living room but the other parts are getting shabby, (like the notorius vintage 70's green shag carpet in the secondary bedrooms) and it has no automatic dishwasher, parts of the bathroom panels that it's noted for are cracked, and the pool is drained. Something must start to be done NOW so it doesn't meet the fate on the Maslon House
