    Default A Rural Oasis in the City


    Moris Moreno For The New York Times
    Seeking an urban dwelling with room for farming, Michy Marxuach and Fernando Lloveras found it in an abandoned 19th-century 9,000-square-foot house, which they bought sight unseen for $800,000. (Puerto Rico)

    why should it have to be kid or old people friendly? their youngest looks pretty old in that picture and i don't see any senior citizens.

    i love it, minus that coca cola thing in the bathroom.

    sigh...I always wanted to be able to sleep on an indoor hammock. Other than that, I wouldn't walk up those bathroom stairs with wet feet.

    More suicide stairs and this time into a bathroom so no slippery floors to worry about. Genius. The rest goes into a dumpster, add petrol and match. The usual.

    Pretty on the outside. Gorgeous, actually.
    Inside sucks. And the bedroom reminds me so much of an Urban Outfitters store.

    i know someone who has one in his living room. but he's an eccentric. he has spent more than 20 years just travelling, mostly through south asia : india, nepal, myanmar, thailand, laos, cambodia, ... and he always takes a hammock with him. he sleeps in it on beaches, on boats etc.

    I'd like to do that, but I don't have enough knowledge of home construction to set it up properly. I'm afraid that the moment I lie on it it'll rip out the ceiling or walls. Plus, most of the cheap ones wouldn't be comfortable for couples.

    That's what they consider an oasis? Yeah, okay.
