Places to stay – Category: Awesome

In searching for a place to stay when we arrive in Hollywood, we’ve encountered the Usual, the Larney, and the Cheap-and-dingy. In fact, while the borders between these house types are somewhat blurry, the vast majority of houses worldwide fit pretty neatly into one of them.

However, every now and then one encounters the rare property that falls into the Awesome category. Here’s the one I want – an early 19th century windmill, restored and modernised.  Four floors of round rooms, with an upstairs room filled with windows, offering 360° views for miles and miles.

    That’s a place I could live in too and I am single! It’s perfect. I’m enjoying your articles. Have you done a story on Bill Green of Maine? He continues to keep Mainers enlightened and informed and he does have quite a huge following. He even has a loyal following in Iraq!
    Keep up the great work!
