Default Hunh? A house is not a home . .

. . . but a converted water tower is! This could have doubled as Home Sweet Home, but it isn't mine and i don't live in it! I've posted this elsewhere before, and it is a day late for the first topic, but as it sort of fits both, it is too fitting to pass up. You never know what you will see in California.

Yea, I pass it every week on the way from Huntington Beach to Seal Beach.. and have photographed it too. It rents for over $3,000 a week in case anyone is interested and, yes, there is an elevator.

The question comes to mind-"Where does it go when you flush?". Better hope the plumber knew what he was doing.

I wonder if the view is worth the $3000? Maybe we all ought to pitch in and find out.

$3K/wk? Walter, what prompted you to ask - were you interested? (I know, you probably saw it in the newspaper).

This tower sits along the beach in what was until recently an unincorporated area encompassing Sunset Beach and the Surfside Colony. Surfside was annexed by Seal Beach, and Sunset Beach is being annexed by Huntington Beach, whose City Council has voted this week to raise their taxes to the level paid by HB residents. I'm unsure which one this tower is in (it is very close to the unmarked boundary line), but in either case, that $3K is probably history! I dont know who owns it now, but last I heard, it was owned by a dentist who shared it with another party who moved out on him, and he no longer could afford the upkeep.
